GeekOut Bristol Meet – June 8th: Tech Toys
We’re back for a much more techy GeekOut Bristol Meet – This month, we’ll be celebrating all that is tech. So whether you’re a gaming enthusiast, or a Pi-Purist, bring your gadgets and gizmos (but not the gremlin sorts) and let’s get to it! Expect to see more than you were expecting, from hardware, gadgets, code – and hey, one of our prizes will even be a BBC Micro Go. Interested? Read on!
FOODIE PRE-MEET Poll Pending (Poll pending):
As ever, we love a good nomming session before GeekOut Bristol Meet – Join us from Monday 21st as we set up the poll for the pre-meetup event!
MAIN EVENT: 14:00-Midnight (Old Market Tavern)
If you’re a fan of gadgets, or if you’re just a bit of a tech-wiz kid, then this may be the event for you. We’re celebrating all the geeky toys you may have, from raspberry pi’s, to 3DSes – Hey, even your Kindles. This event will certainly be about chatting about your favourite devices!
Food & drink can NOT be brought in with you to the Old Market Tavern. If you are caught with food and drink on the premises, you will be asked to leave until you’ve disposed of your food or drink.
There will be a food menu at Old Market Tavern in the evening! The food is very cheap and it’s absolutely delicious! Food is usually available from 6pm.
Final note: If you are asked for ID by the bar staff, we will not vouch for your age – You must provide ID.

COSPLAYERS (Group Cosplay Picture: 9pm)

*CHANGING FACILITIES* If you want to change into a costume when here, please note there are no changing facilities. There are just standard toilet cubicles – Which are fine to change in, but you might want to consider this first.

We all love a good competition and this month will be no exception. Watch this space and every week prior to the meetup, we’ll announce prizes (from third place to first) and what the competition is too.
