Another event has now come and gone, as swiftly as a Pidgeot. Whenever a GeekOut Bristol Meet comes to a close, I like to reflect upon the events of the night. The competition, the prizes, the people and the conversations. Even the weather is worth mentioning from time to time, so in this month’s gallery, here’s a quick rundown of what happened, how the night went and most importantly, some information regarding our next event. Oh, of course, we also have a bunch of pictures to share with you lovely lot. As ever, this is our gallery of this month’s GeekOut Bristol Meet.
You wanna be the very best like no one ever was? Yeah well, you’ve got some stiff competition, as this month’s GeekOut Bristol Meet is celebrating the world of Pokémon. Will you catch ’em all?
Never fear, for GeekOut Bristol Meet is here!
We’re back with action-packed superhero antics. If you’re a fan of Marvel, DC, Independents, or hey even superhero anime/manga, then you’re catered for here! Oh and if you’re not a big superhero fan, don’t worry, we’re still all about the games!
The attendees of Bristol came and played their hearts out, in a competition that had two major prizes. Cash, physical prizes and pride was on the line, as not three, but four attendees walked away with a gift worth talking about. The retro games took their toll on people, as they were as hard as we remembered them. As another event is now behind us, it’s time for our monthly look back at what happened. As ever, we’ll look at the numbers that made up our event, as well as the competition, the prizes and more.
I recently started to talk about the concept of running meetups for yourself; having a common purpose, a common idea or even just an excuse to get some people out of the house. All in all, running a Meetup is an enormous undertaking with huge benefits, whether it be one under the Meetup.com banner, or an event that you’re just putting together. I’ve done some of these articles in the past, but every now and then I still recieve emails and notifications through various places. I sometimes get asked if someone can run an event for me, when they have no experience. I sometimes get asked if they can take over my event (…). Anyway, this is how to run a meetup and how purpose matters.
With that, 2019 was off to a flying start. The geeks of Bristol got together once more, playing plenty of games, drinking and enjoying the warm comforting familiarity of the Old Market Tavern. A huge thanks to the bar staff for another welcoming event, where we decided to see what sorts of plans people had for the year. We had a few great entries for the competition, as well as a new game that we brought along and played. As ever, join us for a look back at this month’s GeekOut Bristol Meet.
Every month, we hold a GeekOut Bristol Meet and GeekOut Shrewsbury Meet. These events are held to celebrate all within geek culture. We’re really open to meeting everyone, regardless of who they are. We ask that everyone who joins us is respectful to one another, which our events are always considered to be good fun. We have our own little internal memes of sorts, which you can get involved with pretty quickly. This month, GeekOut Bristol Meet is going to celebrate the new year’s resolutions that everyone has made – And most importantly, the geeky way they’re going to implement their new year’s resolutions.
