We know that many of you have been waiting for this, and here it is: we’re excited to announce that GeekWire’s official launch event will be held the evening of Wednesday, June 22, at the Showbox SoDo, just south of downtown Seattle.

Tickets available here –- be sure to get yours soon.

We’re calling the bash “Get Your Geek On” — the unofficial rallying cry inside Team GeekWire. Of course, the event will be a great chance to connect with fellow members of the Seattle tech community — come one, come all — all members of the “geekosystem” are welcome.  We’re planning a night to remember.

What do we have in store for you?  No speeches, all games. The centerpiece is GeekBall — no cleats required. Play, watch, compete, cajole, win fabulous prizes … everyone can get in the game. Stay tuned for details, and much more to come.

Limited sponsorships available. Contact Rebecca Lovell, rebecca@geekwire.com for info.

    Bought mine a while back, but it would be cool to see the attendees list of who’s going to the party. I always loved that about Eventbrite.

      Hang tight Joe, we’re on it!  Agreed– Eventbrite has some great features and has been a terrific partner thus far.

     Please consider having a dunk tank where former “Geeks of the Week” are the dunkees.

      If it’s a hot day and the money goes to charity like Vittana.org (@kushalc), I’d be down. :)

      Be careful what you ask for!  Get Your Geek On will be nothing if not festive, and a participation sport.

    Considering my athletic prowess … you wouldn’t need a play-by-play announcer instead, would you?
