Geekzone Pizza evening - Auckland and Christchurch next

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 13-May-2008 20:04

When we decided to run a Geekzone Pizza evening in Wellington back in April (pictures) we decided to limit the numbers to 50 - and I had phone calls on the day from people wanting to join us. The prize list was incredible - and thanks to our sponsors (pizza by WorldxChange, beer by 3Bit and Google) it was a huge success.


We had so much fun that it wasn't hard to convince me to extend this to Auckland (26th May, fully booked) and Christchurch (5th July, almost full).

Again we have a healthy sponsors list and I will copy the current list here:


Auckland Sponsors:

Pizza: Telecom New Zealand is paying for the pizza.

Drinks: 3Bit and Sprite Software are sponsoring the drinks.

Prize pool:

920 Career Agents are bringing Guitar Hero Legends of Rock 3 (game and guitar controller) for PS3 and Xbox 360 (check their IT Rock Star promo).

iway Computer is giving away an AverTV Hybrid Speedy PCI-e DVB-T card.

McAfee is giving us a few copies of McAfee 2008 Total Protection.

Quay Corp is giving us a Targus laptop bag to giveaway during the event.



Christchurch Sponsors:

Pizza: IT Maniacs is contributing towards the pizza.

Drinks: OnlineGroups.Net is contributing towards the drinks.

Prize pool:

McAfee is giving us three copies of McAfee 2008 Total Protection.

Microsoft NZ is giving us three copies of Windows Live OneCare and one copy of Windows Vista Ultimate with SP1.

Quay Corp is giving us a Targus laptop bag to giveaway during the event.

PC Gear is giving us a Logitech G15 keyboard, two Kingston 2GB Data Traveler USB drive, and Ages of Empires 3 Gold Edition (including War Chiefs expansion).

The big prize for the evening will be a Xbox 360 courtesy of PC Gear. To get the winner started Microsoft NZ is throwing some games: Mass Effect, PGR 4 and Viva Pinata Party Animals.


One of the cool things is that we have a few people that are actually attending all three events, flying around the country for the pizza, beer and company!

As you can see we still need some help in Christchurch - I am looking for companies interested in sponsoring the pizza (sharing with IT Maniacs) and drinks. You can contact me for more information - it costs way less than you think!
