UPDATE: Posted link to event on Eventbrite and registration form below.

Geekzone IRL Christchurch 2014 is now upon us! Hit the link to find out more and secure your tickets, or use the form below.

We are happy to have secured sponsorship from Snap, who will provide venue, drinks and food for the event, happening 15th November 2014 in Christchurch. There will be prizes!

Prizes: One Synology DS415 NAS (four bay, no HDD), Rapoo Mechanical Keyboard KX, Switch Solar Bag, Switch Solar Charge Kit (courtesy of Lucid IS), Leap Motion controller, and TWO Frtiz!Box 7490 courtesy of Snap!

Tickets will cost $7.50, in line with previous years - we need to secure attendance since catering is paid on booked numbers, so we have to ensure the no show number is minimum. Don't worry - after the "official" part of the evening we can find somewhere else to drink the tickets so we all benefit anyway.

 

 


We only use PayPal as a payment processor, you don't need to have a PayPal account to buy you tickets.

Myself and Sbiddle are flying WLG - CHC and booked already. You can find some good deals at the moment, $49/$59 tickets on Air NZ.  We're flying WLG - CHC NZ 339 15 NOV, CHC - WLG NZ 372 16 NOV - try and book the same flights!

Early next week I will post the link in this topic and soon after I will send out a mass email to our New Zealand users and will open the link to everyone else.

If you want to guarantee your ticket keep an eye on this topic.

Thanks to Snap, again!

Great to hear snap is sponsoring this one, Christchurch is a little far me so I wont be attending unfortunately.

but enjoy everyone who does go, Auckland one was a great night. I'm sure this will be the same!

Likewise, we'll be in Melbourne visiting the inlaws. Have been to the last few in Christchurch. Look forward to the next one!




Keep calm, and carry on posting.
