2015 Holiday Shenanigans

Wednesday, December 2, 2015 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Come join us for our $i++ holiday shing ding where there is no presentation, but just a good time had by all. We will once again be doing the white elephant gift exchange, if you are into that sort of thing. Rules are simple, bring a gift, of the geeky nature, and at some point in the evening we'll draw numbers. You have the option of picking a gift or stealing the someone elses gift. At the end of it all, the person first picked gets to steal the coolest gift of the night. Short story long, you win if you're picked first.
