Hi guys! Firstly, let me apologise for the short notice for this event, however, I've just received 10 tickets to 2 hours of ski and boarding at the awesome indoor Hemel Hempstead ski centre, and we're making these tickets available now to our members on a first come first serve basis! (£8.50 deposit, which I'll refund to those who attend)
The tickets are sponsored courtesy of Sadie from Pendodeals, who are organising a business networking evening and have booked the whole of Hemel for a private function...because Sadie loves Skiing and boarding, she's given me 10 tickets for Camdug members (those of us geeks that ski or snowboard) to come and party with them...how UBER COOL is that?
For those developers who don't ski or snowboard and are wondering why you received an invitation to a Snowevent in the middle of summer, it's because Camdug runs "Snowcode", an annual developer event held at great ski resorts, (link on left is to last year's snowcode, and it's always good to get together over a shared passion of snow, and meet other passionate devs, and build friendships and discuss cool codey stuff!
If any of you have ever practiced olly-ing or buttering (he he,that's me pretending I can actually olly or balance on the front tip of my board.....all it takes is practice!) , at Hemel, you'll know that 2 hours of boarding on a weekend is worth about £40
I wanted to get this invitation out to everyone as soon as possible, and will update it with more information on Wednesday, i.e. how to find me & us, where we'll meet etc since we'll be sharing the event with other Pendodeal's clients.
The cost to RSVP for this event is £8.50, which I'll refund for those who attend (via a paypal refund after the event) In order to qualify for the refund you will need to joins us for drinks after the ski/boarding session.
* new camdug members are welcome!
This is a great chance to grab some snow right smack in the middle of a brilliant summer.
There's a few questions that you'll need to answer if you RSVP, as Sadie needs to pass this on to Hemel to book each skier/boarder. All slopes users must be competent controlling their speed/turns etc.
If you're nursing a broken arm or injury and can't ski or board, then send me (Alan) an email and I'll mark you as RSVP'd so that you can join us for drinks and chat.
Pendodeals are also providing us with full access to the new Arctic Alley extreme sledging experience. Clothing is included (except gloves).
Thanks again to Sadie and the team from PendoDeals for the awesome tickets! W00t! looking forward to a absolutely fab evening of entertainment and snow.
BRING ON THE SNOW!
Alan and Cathy and the gang from Snowmeetup
