Our annual GeekWire Anniversary Bash is back, taking place March 26th at the Showbox Sodo in Seattle. This is one of our favorite events of the year — letting developers, engineers, entrepreneurs, investors and many others from the tech community compete in the geeky sports of ping pong and foosball.

There’s also beer pong, a conversation lounge, a ping pong ball scavenger hunt and many other activities for those who want to hang out in a more casual (and less competitive) setting.

We’ll have some awesome prizes, and a few surprises tossed in for good measure.

Early-bird tickets are now on sale for this one-of-a-kind event, which will sell out. Go here to buy tickets for the party, or sign up for the intermediate, expert or foosball tournaments. (Limited spots available).

In a new twist this year, I’ll be heading out in a preview tour leading up to the bash with past GeekWire ping pong champion Avi Cavale of Shippable to challenge the best players at some of Seattle’s ping-pong-playing tech companies. Let me know if you’re interested in challenging us in a game of doubles.

Bring it on, Seattle!
