Origins 2011 registration is open

Registration for Origins 2011, the annual joint meeting of the Creation Biology Society and the Creation Geology Society, is now available at the CBS website (scroll past the Call for Abstracts, which are due April 30).

This year, our conference chair is Marcus Ross, and he wants us to know about several extras available in addition to our regular meeting:
Pre-Meeting Geology Field Trip
Date: Wednesday, July 27, 2011

In addition to our society meetings, the CGS will host a pre-meeting field trip of the geology of the Black Hills. This will be a day-long trip with van transportation, and we will visit a number of prominent geologic features and locations in the Black Hills, including Precambrian basement rocks, the Great Unconformity, vast marine deposits, and more. Here’s a great opportunity to see some beautiful geology up-close, and have a great time of discussion with trip leaders and fellow participants. Cost includes transportation, a boxed lunch, snacks, and drinks.

Post-Meeting 2-day Public Conference: ORIGINS 2011
Date: July 29-30 (Friday evening, Saturday)

Another exciting announcement: in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the publication of The Genesis Flood, the CGS and CBS are pleased to announce their first-ever public conference. Friday night and all day Saturday, speakers in the fields of theology, biology, geology, and other disciplines will commemorate the impact of The Genesis Flood, and update the public on significant advances in young-Earth creationism. The finalized speaker list will be posted as soon as possible.
I know what he's got planned for the public conference, and I will say that it's going to be well worth the time.
