The Geekzone Pizza evening in Christchurch: thanks to sponsors

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 3-Jul-2008 15:54

This weekend I am flying to Christchurch where I will be meeting some other Geekzone users for our Geekzone Pizza Evening Christchurch Saturday evening.

If this even goes like the ones in Wellington and Auckland it will be a success! It is Thursday only and we know of some people from Auckland who are already in Christchurch (or rather they flew in this morning, got a car to visit Queenstown and back Saturday). Some of the Wellington people are flying this Friday too, so I am sure everyone will be ready for a weekend of fun with the local Geekzone users.

Again, we couldn't do it without the help of our sponsors, so here is the list... Make sure you visit their websites to see what they are up to:


Pizza: Jobx is sponsoring the pizza.

DrinksIT Maniacs and OnlineGroups.Net are 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).

Snap Internert will be present and giving two Internet Packs (Linksys WAG54G router plus six months Snap Advanced ADSL)*.

Symantec is giving us a copy of Norton Internet Security 2008 and Norton Antivirus 2008.

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.


Although this event is fully booked, we still have some space left for the Geekzone Pizza Evening Hastings - and yes a lot of people are flying up to the Hawkes Bay for that one too!
