Westchester Geeks Winter Gala - DATE TENTATIVE

  • Needs a location

  • / Masquerade Ball?

    This is an idea that some people have been throwing around for a while now. Who would like to dress up for a night of dinner and dancing while being all mysterious behind a mask?

    This is a tentative idea and a tentative date; we just want to gauge interest in a fancy Gala-type party in hosted by Geeks for Geeks. Who's game?

    It would be something that we'd have to charge for; the price being how extravagant we want to get. Right now, we are assuming $20 to $30.

    There, I flung it further into the future, hopefully avoiding confusion... At least it's back in the Winter!

      I'm assuming it needs further flinging?

    • Michael

      Further flinging is needed, yes...

    Michael, perhaps you could look into renting the hall at one of the local VFW posts. The one in Tarrytown and 2 in Yonkers rent their halls and quite a few in Queens. Check out www.vfw.org.

    Wait wait wait... I just noticed that this was scheduled on an actual date. We are NOT having it September 6th. We need a venue still (Something that in very hard to find in Westchester under $5,000...).

    I will let you all know when we set an actual date and an actual location. We are still working on this!

    Are we talking about a fancy masquerade or cosplay?!

    July 14, 2014

    • Michael

      We are talking fancy OR fancy cosplay! So you can dress in a tux/cocktail dress/gown, or dress up as a prince/ss or shiny knight, but no barbarian vikings, sweatpants, or t-shirts allowed.\

    No problem Michael! We will do it when we do it. Personally, I'm glad to have more time to figure out what I'm wearing.

  • Michael

    OK, I'm forced to throw this out into the realm of "Later" again. This is still happening, it's just getting too close to Geek Pride Day if we wait another month or two, and I don't think the Summer is really a good time for a Ball.

    SO, again, September 6th is just a date to have in mind. This will happen, and patience only will make the party more awesome!

  • Chris

    Ummm are we still doing this?

    February 3, 2014

    • Michael

      Yes, but not on March 1st. We are going to have to push it back again, due to venues and Geek Pride Day. We are now looking at a late August/September date. Stay tuned! We are still working on the Gala!

    • Terry

      this is right before my birthday too -- would be a great way to celebrate all 2014 birthday babies! :)

      October 6, 2013

    • Michael

      Sorry, but the date had to be moved back. We can still celebrate Birthdays, though!

      November 25, 2013

  • Michael

    Hey all, I moved the date back in order to show the new time period that the Gala will be happening. We are getting closer to having a location set, but the time has to move to more in the future. The good news about this is that Masquerades are traditionally held for Mardi Gras, so this places us right in time!

    Again, THE DAY IS TENTATIVE, so use this as a Save-The-Date until further notice :-)
