Announcing SnowCon!

Front Range Objectivism is pleased to announce the full schedule and to open registration for SnowCon -- our March mini-conference.  The core of the conference runs from Friday, March 11th to Sunday, March 13th in Denver, but you can also join us for three days of winter play in the beautiful Colorado Rockies beforehand.


You can view the full schedule of lectures and events on the SnowCon web site:


Or you can watch/listen to my preview of it:


Colorado is a wonderful state to visit, and SnowCon will be good intellectual fun!  So please join us! 


To attend SnowCon, you must register by noon on Thursday, March 3rd.  If you register by noon on Thursday, February 24th, you'll save $20, paying only $140 rather than $160.  (That price includes two buffet meals.)


Here are some more details from the SnowCon web page:


The core events of SnowCon will be held in Denver on Saturday and Sunday. Lectures include Dr. Paul Hsieh on the morality of carrying firearms, Dr. Diana Hsieh on moral character, Santiago Valenzuela on immigration, and Joe Collins on America's founding.  Saturday night's keynote FROST lecture will feature Jenn Casey and Kelly Elmore on applying the principles of positive discipline to adult relationships.


SnowCon also offers a workshop on activist writing with Ari Armstrong, a discussion and performance of Beethoven by pianist Hannah Krening, a workshop on Atlas Shrugged Reading Groups, a demonstration of Liberty Toastmasters, and more. Other optional events include a tour of Denver microbreweries, a hike in Roxborough Park, a tour of the Denver Museum of Art, and a trip to a local shooting range.


For details, see Denver Activities and Schedule.


In addition, SnowCon attendees can enjoy three relaxed days of skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and other winter activities together in Breckenridge before the weekend in Denver -- from Wednesday to Friday.


For details, see Breckenridge Activities and Schedule.


SnowCon welcomes all friendly people with a serious interest in or honest curiosity about Ayn Rand's philosophy, regardless of their level of knowledge.


Santiago and I will be attending the Breckenridge and Denver conference days and we hope to see you there!
