Big Geek Bristol Meet

Our once per month big geek meetup where we sit in a pub, have a chat and generally GeekOut together!

I'm going to be looking for a venue in advanced so we can stay there the whole night, rather than bouncing from venue to venue.

There'll be a few topics I want to share with everyone this time around, if there's anything you want to do with the whole group/announce to the whole group either let me know or just come along and say your piece!

We'd love to see you all again. If you all have suggestions for venues, let me know in the comments below!

For this event, I'd like everyone who attends to try and bring something with them which they think really helps define them as a geek.

Let's share our enthusiasm for geek culture and let's "geek proudly in a pub".

    It's been a while since I've been able to make it, too. And, alas, it looks like this one isn't going to work out either. I WILL be back though. Had such a great time before. :)

      Nice to see you are looking to attend this one Erica! I hope all is well? Officially we will be upstairs at the King William Ale House from 7pm. I will try and get us close to the door like last time, but if we get lots of interest: we wont have another "horseshoe shaped table!" haha :)

      Its been a busy with one thing or another but looking forward to seeing you all again. It was good fun last time. Thanks for letting me know location. See you soon :-)

    Alright, we're getting close now guys!

    It'll be wonderful to get together in the pub and let's discuss anything and everything geek!

    If you have any board games or card games you'd like to share during the event, bring it! We'd love to see it!

    I'd just like to thank you all for sticking to the message of GeekOut, you guys rock!

    Don't forget to try to bring something with you that helps to define you as a geek. We'll also, no doubt, get to play some pool as well while we're there!

    I'll make sure to have the GeekOut table sign as per usual (This time, I've actually made it look pretty geeky and awesome! It's not the generic meetup logo)... However, the meetup logo is still on the sign.

    So, come along, look for the geeks with the table sign and also I'll be wearing my "trademark" hat... It helps to identify the Bristol geeks! :)

    That weekend is Brisol Pride and I have guests visiting so it will depend on what they are up to (although they are all geeks so may well be interested in meeting up along the way)

      Indeed, I will also be going to Bristol Pride the following day with another meetup group (It'll be one heck of a busy weekend for me!)

      I know it's a bit of a risk putting it right next to pride, but I thought I'd keep the event close to the 2nd weekend of the month as it's been for a little while. Sorry if it causes any inconvenience :)
