Agganis Arena, 925 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA, USA (Map & Directions)
Geeks Who Drink is bringing Geek Bowl to Boston this year, and it's time for the Taters to show the world what they know! As the event happens to be a few days before my birthday, DiscourseMarker and I are counting this as my birthday party and will cover the tickets for up to two Tater teams of six people each (tickets can only be bought in sixes). Please RSVP as soon as you can so that I know that whether we can fill out two teams, thanks!

Since we're now at 11 and 1 let's say that's are 12 pending Rustic Etruscan's availability, and we can look for an alternate if he's not able. I think the fairest thing is to divide into two teams based on RSVP order, so one team would be me through Diablevert and one Cogito through RE. each team needs to register and provide a main and backup contact person. I can handle that forTteam 1 but I'll need a couple volunteers to be the contacts for Team 2.

I'll register and be primary contact for team Twoters. Did you get general floor seats or fixed seating in the stands, Horace Rumpole?

Any volunteers for backup contact?

Thanks, Cogito. I got us General Admission Floor seats.

Tickets purchased. Unfortunately there were no floor tickets available, so we're in the stands. I registered as Taters II: Electric Boogaloo. If anyone wants to be the backup contact, you can email and give them your contact info.

Horace Rumpole (or DiscourseMarker) , you can MeMail me to arrange for the payment. That's super generous of y'all to cover the costs.

Oh, heck, Cogito, I already bought 12 tickets, I just meant that somebody needed to register the other team. This is a longshot, but is there any possibility of cancellation? If not, we'll still cover it and I guess we can try to find some more folks to play.

Howdy! I'll be moving out that way in about a week and would love to join in if you have the room. If not, can't wait to meet everyone at another meetup.

I can provide references for my trivia cred if need be.

Gah! Sorry for the confusion, Horace Rumpole; my mistake. I contacted TicketMaster and they were about as helpful as you'd anticipate. I've emailed Geeks Who Drink to see if there's anything they can do, and I'll let you know.

I’m happy to be a/the backup contact for taters II, I’ll email the geekbowl email address that Cogito provided now to confirm it

Hey, I'd love to participate if it's not too late! I'm new in town and eager to get to know a new batch of mefites IRL!
