Geekzone Pizza evening is full

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 4-Apr-2008 20:14

While chatting in the #geekzone IRC channel we decided it was time for Geekzone users to get together again for some geek talk, dinner and drinks.

As soon as we decided on a date we had people sending SMS, IMs and Twitters to friends, booking flights to Wellington and soon after we announced the Geekzone Pizza evening in our forums we knew this would be big.

Well it is big. We are happy to announce we have now reached our self-imposed limit (and the venue capacity) of 45 confirmed people.

I am also happy to announce that a few companies joined us to sponsor this evening. So here is the list (a couple more may join later and I will update the post, but these are the confirmed ones at the time we closed registrations):

The first to come on board sponsoring the pizza is WorldxChange!

Then in alphabetical order:

3Bit will be present and is sponsoring drinks;

ASUS is giving an ASUS Eee PC (Windows version) away;

Dell is giving a Dell Photo Printer away;

Google is sponsoring drinks - and expect some Google swag on the night;

Microsoft is giving away a couple of copies of Windows Vista Ultimate with SP1 and some other software;

QuayCorp will have a couple of people attending and are giving a Viewsonic vx2235wm widescreen monitor and a HP Deskjet F4185 printer away;

Telecom New Zealand is giving a couple of their mobile broadband express cards away.

As I said, we have a couple of still unconfirmed sponsors, and when or if they confirm I will update this post.

If your company wants to sponsor this evening with a prize, please contact me. I am sure you would get great exposure from this ;)
