Hi All

I have hijacked the June AIP meeting in Sydney and have dastardly
plans to unleash on the unsuspecting sci-curious… The Physics
Free-For-All Variety Night!!

Eight snappy Physics Acts, each of a mere eight minutes - and YOU are
invited to take part. - sign up NOW!!

Just give us eight minutes of phun, phascinating physics: a demo, a
story, a song, some stand-up or a new twist on a traditional
presentation. You know what I mean - we’re not talking frictionless
inclined planes or spherical cows in a vacuum. Maybe even no

Anything goes, in this format which is sweeping the UK – show off an
innovative approach to communication in front of a friendly audience.
If you’re too chicken to try it, then mark the date, and come along to
laugh, cry and cheer!

I will be your MC on the night, and I will MAKE the audience applaud,
cheer, laugh (when appropriate) and worship you; so do not be afraid.
Besides, it’s in a pub, they’ll be “favourably disposed”.

Date: Thursday 19th June 2014
Time: 7.00 – 8.30 PM
Venue: 3 Wise Monkeys Pub, upstairs function room, 555 George
St, Sydney (close to Hay Market)
Cost: Free (plus free nibblies)
Work required on your behalf : A measly 8 minutes (and maybe
a practice run or two)

Just drop me an email with a title, a description of your act, genre
(demo, music, comedy, talk, video, story etc), and your resource
requirements, along with a short bio. Or call me to discuss, workshop
or develop ideas – 0414 94 5577.

Expressions of interest by 19th May 2014 to phildooley at gmail.com
