This year the PASS Summit is being held in Denver, which is very cool for me. It's a 40 mile drive for me instead of a 3 hour plane flight as it's been most other years. And once again we're having an opening night reception for those people that register for the conference with the source code of SSC
We're going with the same party format we've used in previous years, with adult games of chance set up for you to have fun and win some prizes. I've been coordinating things and I've already gotten 50 DVDs of various "geek themed" movies as giveaways. However there is more money to be spent, so this week's poll is:
What's a good prize at our PASS Summit Reception?
Typically we randomly give out prizes all night long. We walk around and the next "ace" or the next winner of a hand gets a prize. Last year my daughter helped me wrap the gifts so it was surprise, but this year I'm thinking to bring 2-3 prizes with me and let people choose what they get.
Those are the random prizes so we can have run and enjoy the party. However each year we've also given away some bigger prizes to the 3 top "money" winners at the party. So I've got ideas about what to give away, but I'm looking for some good ideas for prizes that are in the $300-500 range for the winners and also some other random ones. I've grabbed some iPods (Nano's and Shuffles), but I've got more money to spend.
We run this as a non-profit, "fun" event. We spend every penny of the referral fees we get from PASS on the party and this year I've got a bigger budget because there's no shipping :). So help me out, give me some ideas of what you'd like to win.
And don't forget to register with the SSC source code when you sign up for the summit.
That one I like, except for the thrash part .
