Last year, we partnered with Canadian Livers in Training symposium and it was a huge success. The 2010 edition is just around the corner and will be hosted by SXSW dignitaries Jay Goldman (@jaygoldman) and Lee Dale (@smack416) as well as the whole GenY Crew.

As you know, much of the success of last year's event was being able to introduce the GenYTO cru to the SXSW veterans. Once again we'll be joining forces with GenYTO to bring the best and brightest minds of all ages together for this liver training event.
Our gracious host
This year we are ever so pleased to be hosting at the elevator free Fair Trade Jewelry Co thanks to the generosity of Ryan Taylor (@ryantaylor).
As with last year, there will be music a plenty, from the tag teaming People Downtown duo of Abdul Smooth and Nathan Lee (@nathan416). This ain't no slumber party (as opposed to last year). Be prepared to shake what your momma gave you.
Drinks are on you!
Of course, we'll be greatly encouraging the BYOB extravaganza that took hold last year and, with no elevator shenanigans everyone we'll be completely focused on socializing right away.

Now, last year, we had the greatest flasks ever made as a takeaway for all the SXSW attendees. These were a huge hit with the Austin crowd and all the Canadians we ran into down there, but there was one thing we all agreed: they were too damn small. So, this year, we'll be sporting a suitably sized stainless steel "water" bottle for our drinking team needs.
Each bottle purchase comes with a ticket to the event.
For Your Home!
We're also hoping you'll be excited to take home some CanLIT glasses to impress your house party guests and help you train year round. With that in mind, we have two new CanLIT items:
1.5 oz shot glasses
16 oz pilsner glasses
You can purchase multiples of these to round out your home glass wear, but please note that we need to reach a minimum volume of 72 and place an order by Wednesday Feb 24 to have them ready for Friday's party.
If we don't reach this volume we'll issue refunds where required and will have to try again next year with a little more notice, so please get your orders in by Wednesday evening at the latest.
Shipping and delivery = not gonna happen. Please do not order any of these goods unless you intend to be at the party on Mar 5. We take no responsibility if you're not there to pick up your stuff.Well, maybe if you ask nicely.
For water bottles, we're happy to bring some to SXSW for out-of-towners but Lee won't be able to fit 25 in his suitcase like last time.
Also, all proceeds will go to party favours or supporting a good cause that does not include Jay and Lee's performance fees.
We really hope to see you out at what will surely be the most epic GenY of the year
The GenYTO Crew
