1) The first Skepchicamp, a skepticamp thrown by the Skepchicks, will be held on Saturday, March 6 in Chicago. You can get more details here. Skepticamps are audience-participation events, where everyone can help in some way. They're fun, so if you're in Chicago then, give it a shot.

2) GenCon is a gaming convention held in Indianapolis, and this year there will be a skeptic track. That's from August 5-8.

I'm glad to see more grassroots skeptical events getting put together. They're great ways to meet like-minded folks, to learn new things, and to have a lot of fun.
