nate: Thanks everyone for coming, bloody good night, hope you were well fed and watered.

Thanks to our sponsor BigPipe, and all the other sponsors who donated stuff.

Sorry about the lack of name tags, I forgot to print the tags, will make it a priority for the next one :)

I'll put up the photos the photographer took, and the time lapse in the next few days.



As usual Nate, you were the perfect host, swanning around in your apron serving food! ;-)

Lovely nibbles they were too.

Lovely evening, thank you everybody for coming, contributing, hosting, etc.

Yes nametags next time would be a bonus - trying to associate some rather random avatars with real faces is a bit interesting at times. 

So. Many. People. Wow!

And PeterReader too!





<- don't ask me where I am - I haven't a clue: its a tech thing ;)
Housewife computerer: not particularly great at either. 
And don't take me too seriously.

Yes thanks Nate and the Crew for the organisation and the Lovely Food ( Leslie) 
I made it safely back to the Waikato this morning. Would you believe the rain stopped at the Bombays. Even the boarder Police let me through !!
Hope to have another Waikato Geekzone evening later in the year ?? Late November.
Cheers till next time

Thanks Nate and all the sponsors for a great evening. Food was delicious and plentiful.

Made some excellent connections too and thank you Microsoft for the bluetooth headphones :-0

(Probably the first time I've won anything this century). A big +1 on the nametags idea.

Many thanks to Nate, Tuihana, Bigpipe, and whoever was kind enough to set alarms on all of my phones. :)

Actually, it was censored at the request of the person in the pic, not VF :P  Personally, I'd ask before publishing pics of anybody online ;-)

That sounds like a huge pain. 

Luckily we have very very very small print on the stickers saying that by accepting the sticker on their body they grant full permission to Flickky to do anything and everything to anybody wearing them.
 
A photograph is the least of his worries  tongue-out
