We’ve got some serious Super Bowl fever here at GeekWire. But the biggest sporting event of the year — at least in the Seattle tech community — is coming up March 20.
That’s right, folks. We just put early-bird tickets on sale for the third annual GeekWire Anniversary Bash & Ping Pong Tourney. We’ll be hosting expert and intermediate ping-pong tournament, complete with fabulous prizes. We’ll also be rolling out the foosball tables again, hosting a competition in that geekiest of sports.
Make sure to get your tickets today at the discounted rates, and enter the tournaments before slots fill up.
Not interested in geek sports? Don’t worry. This is an anniversary party first and foremost, and we’ll be bringing back fun activities like the Golden Ping Pong Ball Scavenger Hunt; Photo Booth; Beer Pong; and our coveted Spirit Prize award for the team that shows the most geek pride.
We’ll also be adding a few other special surprises this year, so stay tuned for those.
If you’d like more details on sponsoring this event, please contact GeekWire Chief Business Officer Daniel Rossi at [email protected].
Last year, an epic battle broke out when Shippable CEO Avi Cavale roared back in typical beast mode fashion to beat former Japan national champ Tetsuo Kasahara of Flowroute. We’re also expecting a strong showing this year by Minh Le of Silicon Valley Bank and Greg Gottesman of Madrona, as we’ve heard they have been training in Rocky Balboa style!
Who will take the crown this year? Sign up below to join us and find out.
