The superheroes and supervillains of Bristol came together in a mighty menagerie, proving case in point that they were the best ensemble of all. They came in, they grabbed plenty of drinks and then they entered themselves in a competition of superheroics, where now we know whose image will leave a lasting impression. But how did the event itself go, what do we have planned for next month and where oh where did we go to eat before the meet? As ever, today we’re checking out this past weekend’s GeekOut Bristol Meet!

Gamers rejoice, as we’re coming back with another video-game filled event. It’s been a while since we had a gaming session, but now it’s time to put on your gamers gauntlet, as we celebrate video games in all of its glory.
Stories are wonderful, especially when they’re you’re own! If you’ve ever wanted to write your own short story and have people read what you’ve written, you’re sort of in with a chance. Sort of. Oh and we’ll see how many people we can get to bring their writers hat for this event, too. This is just a good excuse to wear hats and read fun creative works from all of you, in all honesty.
Ahh, Shrewsbury is a-growing.
We have a thriving nerd community around town, GeekOut Shrewsbury is only one addition to a variety of events, groups, societies and organisations with a geeky slant. Shrewsbury, let me tell you, we are the envy of many towns and cities around the country where the gamers, film buffs, fantasy, sci-fi, and horror fans are simply not as well catered to.
Today I celebrate a couple of new groups to town, the shop Labrinth, and a new public gaming group hosted in the Cave: (more…)

We really do love technology; that much is certain. We proved how much we love our tech, by showing off our new Raspberry Pi Arcade! However, that wasn’t all we did, as once again the geeks of Bristol gathered around for a night of fun and games; of both board and video variety. We drank together, we sang together (seriously, that happened) and overall we had a great time together. But hey, you’re here to see some pictures of the event and to learn a bit more about what happened. Along with seeing the pictures, we’ll share the competition so you can have a go if you’d like to!

Jus’ an update for ye, ya filthy bilge rats.
For those of you who aren’t aware, as a website/blog, we’ve been around since September 2013. In this time, we’ve met many people, we’ve done many competitions, we’ve ran many meetup events and we’ve constantly gotten bigger and better. As of yesterday, we’ve surpassed 1,000 Meetup members. Join Timlah through this celebratory look at what we’ve accomplished as GeekOut South-West.

At GeekOut Bristol, we like to make sure that people come along and have a great time. Timlah runs the event, mostly by himself, but with help from some really great friends of his and GeekOut, he makes sure the events get bigger and more entertaining. Join Timlah as he looks through what’s coming up for this May’s event.

Meetups are something we specialise in here on GeekOut. We’re somewhat of an expert of building a meaningful community within a group of geeks. One day, perhaps we can make it our official day jobs to travel the country and build communities? Regardless, I figured the best way to start is to just do. Now I’ll explain to all of you the best way to get your own communities for a topic of your interest.
