Its been several years since there has been a Geekzone event in our area. 

 

Just checking in to see who might be interested. I don't mind organising.

 

Last few times we have met at the Good George which seems to be a good venue.

 

Worthwhile discussion or not

I'll pop my head in, hopefully it'll happen when I'm not on shift but worst case I can walk over for my break and say hello.





Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.

I could be keen depending on dates. I won't be able to get a good hotel rate though as I don't think we can mix with MIQ quests. πŸ˜€

I have secured a couple of hundred dollars bar tab from Vodafone for this meetup.

 

Just need a date so we can arrange flights to Auckland and book some rooms - party taxi here we come!

As a local in Hamilton, I think it's a great idea to bring these events into the district!
