We’re bringing back one of our favorite activities of the year, and now’s your chance to sign up before prices go up. Yep, that’s right. Early-bird rates end today for GeekWire’s anniversary bash, featuring the fabulously fun ping pong and foosball tournaments.

Where else can you see venture capitalist Greg Gottesman sweating it out as he smashes a forehand, or some furious foosball action from the folks at 47 Degrees?

Get your tickets for this one-of-a-kind event, taking place March 6th at the Showbox Sodo in Seattle.

This year, we’re also introducing another favorite activity. In addition to sponsoring the foosball tournament, Budweiser will be showcasing the exciting bean bag toss game. OK, back in Ohio where I’m from, they call it corn hole. Trust me, it’s a ton of fun.

In addition, winners of the ping pong and foosball tournaments this year will get access to the awesome Anheuser-Busch suite at an upcoming Sounders match. OK, now you’ve really got something to play for folks!!

We’ve got a lot of other great prizes and activities in store, including the Spirit Prize for the company which most proudly flies their geek colors during the event. The very popular beer pong table and photo booth also will be making a return!

This is a party first and foremost.

Attention competitors: Register here or below for the expert and intermediate ping-pong tournaments, and the foosball tournament, before they fill up. Foosball competitors should sign up in teams of two. Deadline is Feb. 25, and the tournament entry fee includes full access to the event.

Anyone can sign up to compete, and we’re encouraging companies from throughout the Seattle region and beyond to send players to compete for a piece of the glory on behalf of their companies.

More details on ping-pong and foosball tournament are available in this FAQ, and we’ll have much more on the tournaments as the brackets come together over the course of the next month.

A big thanks to our sponsorsFilterBudweiserTableau Software, Knoll, First Tech Federal Credit Union, Outlook.comBarokas PRSEOmozSidecar and Fresh Consulting, for helping to make this event possible.
