2007 LAVA / OpenG NI-Week BBQ


Recommended Posts

To continue the long-standing annual tradition of beer, BBQ & good times, you're invited to share an evening of social fun with the good people from LAVA (LabVIEW Advanced Virtual Architects), OpenG (LabVIEW's open source community), as well as some selected NI R&D folks to chew the fat (literally & figuratively). Take the opportunity of being at NI-Week to mingel with some of the world's greatest LabVIEW minds, and absorb the virtues of an open LabVIEW community, along with a pound or two of meat. There will be lucky-door prizes including LAVA clothing (members are encouraged to donate something as well!)

Location: Salt Lick BBQ

18300 FM Rd 1826, Driftwood, TX US

When: Tuesday, August 7, 6:00PM

How to Attend: Online registration and pre-paying is required. Click here to Register.

Getting there: NI is sponsoring a bus to get us there (thanks NI - you rock!) so meet in the exhibition lounge around 5:45pm for a 6pm sharp departure. If we have overflow, we'd appreciate it if those with cars could offer transport to/from the Salt Lick.

Menu (all you can eat & drink): Beef Brisket, Sausage, Pork Ribs, Chicken, Beans, Cole Slaw, Potato Salad, Bread, Butter, Sauce, Pickles & Onions, Iced Tea, Water & Coffee. Note: The Salt Lick is in a dry county, but we'll be so if you'd like a Shiner Bock or three, we'll be stopping the bus for 15 minutes at a local store to allow for beer purchases.

Can I invite people?

Are you kidding me? Of course you can! Why wouldn't you want to share some of the LAVA/OpenG goodness with those you love? The more people that know about LAVA and OpenG, the better!

Why do I have to prepay?

The SaltLick policy requires us to prepay for everything (as well as a security deposit) to confirm the reservation of the room (that's around $1,500). We've personally pitched in to put up the money up-front to get everything rolling, but you need pay the fee when confirming your place. As it's a limited-numbers event, there are no refunds (we're sure it won't be a problem, 'cause you'd be crazy to miss it!)

Chris,

Thanks for organizing this year. Your efforts last year really made it an awesome event. I can only imaging how awesome it's going to be this year, now that you actually get to come. :worship:

Cheers,

-Jim

Actually, the link I provided was the wrong one - it's fixed now.

Actually, it'll probably be less awesome, as there'll be less beer and brisket for every one else...

(seriously though: I've never heard of the Salt Lick running out of brisket, no matter how hard the LAVA/OpenG people try ;) )

Is that serious ? I mean... do we really have to register on this "fuzzy" website ?

Yes.

Hmmmm... interweb-things never like me... I keep modifying your answer whatever I do, and I swear it is not on purpose :headbang:

I gave you the wrong link initially, which logged you into the eVite site as me, so now you'll need to log out of the eVite site and log in as yourself.

What data do we need to fill in for the carpool ?

I'm not sure we're going to need a car pool, as NI is providing a bus (thanks NI!) That said, if we have overflow, I'm sure there'll be enough people to offer rides

Chris,

If we want people to show meet at 5:45pm for a 6pm departure, it might be wise to change the event start time to 5:45pm. This is the time that will be sitting in peoples' heads as the time to show up.

See y'all soon.
