Subject: [BCSkeptics Announce] Richard Dawkins Speaks at UBC
The BC Skeptics have a unique opportunity through Yyyyy Yyyyyyyy to acquire tickets to Richard Dawkins speaking at UBC on the Tuesday the 29th of April at 2PM at the Chan Centre.
I am sure I don’t need to tell you who Richard Dawkins is: Evolutionary biologist extraordinaire and, more recently, vocal atheist.
Here are the terms:
I do not know how many tickets can be made available. So I will ask for as many as we need, but they may have to be allotted on a first come, first
You must be seated by 1:45PM at the latest at UBC.
You must get back to me no later than this Friday (April 11) at 8AM.
Finally, you must be prepared to bear the cost: Zero dollars and zero
cents!!! In other venues, he asks $500 a head!
So please email me directly ASAP.

I am absolutely in for this. Please let me if I can do anything to repay the favour.
(I might have been still quicker on the draw had I not forced myself to reread the message to confirm that I hadn’t misinterpreted the offer.)
