Anniversary Party org meeting #2

Starting off with some updates to share:

• We're holding costume contest at the party as eel las lightning talk and we've accumulated quite a list of prizes to give away to the winners. We're trying to keep them specific to things members need as developers and/or local made in Buffalo goodness. So far we have 40 goodie bags from Google, 6 cocktail card stacks and 4 city dining cards from Block Club, assorted books about coding provided by 19 Ideas, 2 free GDI classes, membership and hand-made poster from WNY Book Arts Center. So far the prize pool is about $400! If you can think of a company or service that you'd like to win and is relevant, definitely let me know and I'll reach out to them.

• We're looking for food/beer/alcohol sponsors. If your company is interested in reaching 200 developers, send them a link to the invite. Studio LLC is our biggest sponsor so far at $400 and it's going to cover most of our food. And Branding By Insight is covering our location costs. A sponsorship as little as $50 would be a big help. 

• The Nerd glasses have been purchased! We're going to be giving them out to everyone at the registration table. 

• We need volunteers to help with decorations and someone to pick up cups/paper plates/napkins/plastic silverware for the party.

We can discuss more on Monday. Hope to see you there!

    I can't make this meeting in person either :( But I'll be available for some google hangout during that if that seems useful, and I'll help out the week and day of the event.
