It’s that time of year -- getting NIWeek approval, booking flights to AUS, and being the first to nab your LAVA BBQ ticket! For those of you who have never been to the kind of LAVA BBQ we're putting on, it's a time to get to know “the people behind the avatars” over BBQ and beers.

 

Everything you need to know is on the LAVA BBQ 2013 Event Page, including time, a link to a map, a checkout to buy tickets today ... but we’ll violate the SSOT principle and make a data copy of the BBQ2013.lvclass object below:

 

Date: Tuesday, 06 August 2013

Time: 7:00-10:00pm CDT (after the NIWeek Block Diagram Party. You won’t miss any NIWeek official events)

Time for @LabVIEW_BORAT (and other ISO-8601-compliant robots): <EventBeginTimestamp>2013-08-07T00:00:00.000Z</EventBeginTimestamp>

Location: Scholz Garten, 1607 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin, TX 78704 (1 mile from Convention Center)

Cost:

  • $30 Early Bird (until July 5th)
  • $35 Regular Admission (Until Aug 6th)
  • $40 At the Door

Who: Everyone is welcome, including spouses travelling to Austin with you. Even if it’s your first time, expect to recognize many faces/names from the forums and NI R&D

What to wear: I’ve seen everything from flip-flops to evening gowns to... leather hats. (The vast majority leans toward casual clothes suited for the 1mile 95°F 7pm walk)

 

If you plan to sponsor a Door Prize, there is a form field with your name on it during checkout. (See existing Prizes)

If you prefer a Vegetarian option, we’d love to have you; there is a form field with your name on it during checkout.

 

Hope to see you there! Chime in on this thread (and the comments section of the Event Page) once you buy tickets.

Looking forward to the BBQ.  A word of advice from a previous mistake: wear shorts!

 

Agreed - the year Norm turned up without any pants on still haunts me.

 

PS: got my ticket :)

Is there a post to start talking about door prices? I have one for this year.

 

Of course! http://lavag.org/topic/16930-lava-bbq-2013-door-prizes/

 

And for those planning on sponsoring door prizes: there's a field during ticket checkout where you can enter information about intent to sponsor a prize. Feel free to mirror that information on the public thread linked. Between both channels, I will be sure to follow up with you prior to the BBQ to ensure we've got all the details.

Friendly bump before many of you go away for the US Independence Day long weekend:

 

Early-bird pricing ends this Friday, 05 July 2013 at midnight, Austin time. After that, ticket prices go up $5USD.

 

Register today, and bring that extra Abe for the cash bar!

 

(*an Abe is a $5 bill)

Signed up.

 

Stupid question: will we need to bring physical tickets with us? Is a name and ID sufficient, or a smartphone displaying the tickets?

 

Not a stupid question at all!

 

We have a complete roster of everyone signed up, so you should not need to bring anything. It would not hurt to have an email of the receipt on your smartphone, just in case. But certainly, no need to print.

 

The only thing we would strongly suggest bringing is your NIWeek Name Badge. Not so much for identifying yourself at the registration table, but so you'll feel more comfortable meeting new people and networking. Pro-tip: the badge holder is a perfect place to stash 8-10 biz cards.

           The venue is now a 30 minute walk from the convention center, or a $6 Uber.  Get together and carpool, people are typically gathering at Challenge the Champions in Exhibit Hall 4, which is great fun.  There is a free parking garage behind the building.
       
      We'd love for you to sponsor a door prize - Continue Reading:
      If you or your company want to sponsor a LAVA BBQ door prize, please post a reply below. You can also include a small blurb about your company and a link to your website in the post below. By donating a prize you and your company will receive a small announcement of your choosing, during the event. We will ask you to write the announcement on a post-it note and will attach it to the prize to be read before awarding it.
      We love the door prizes, but we love time for socializing too.  Here are some guidelines to keep our event balanced and streamlined.
      Single item donations work best. If donating more than one item, then multiple identical items is strongly preferred. If donating non-tangible items or something that is not physically with you, then please bring a card with your contact info and instructions on how to collect the prize. This will be given to the winner. Donations are typically $25-$200 in value. Not recommended:
      Apparel (hats, t-shirts, underwear, etc.) - never the right size Software licenses (Toolkits, add-ons, LabVIEW) Branded trade show booth type giveaways (mouse pads, pens, keychains, etc.) Jokes or something meant as a gag and not a real prize  
      Hope to see you there! Chime in once you buy tickets to let everyone know you're coming.
