Less than two weeks now until the next MeasureBowling and numbers are looking very good. We are going to end up with around 17 cities involved which should mean about 350 members of the analytics community involved in a single event across Europe. Pretty impressive and a lot of the credit must go to Nicolas Malo who has put in an enormous amount of work coordinating and supporting local organisers.
It is a European wide event and one of the ways we tie all the local events together is through prizes. As with the first MeasureBowling event, we will be awarding prizes to the best bowlers in Europe, the best NerdShirts and general door prizes, whichever door you walked through. Up for grabs we have:
- Three £50 Amazon gift vouchers (in your local currency) for three best bowlers (plus all the glory)
- Ten £20 Amazon gift vouchers as door prizes – no more than one can be won in any individual city so these will be spread across Europe
- Two £25 ASOS gift vouchers for the best (worst?) nerd t-shirts worn at MeasureBowling
The door prizes should be announced on the evening itself – as long as all the local organisers send through names of attendees…
To understand the concept of the NerdShirt a bit better, refer to the photos below. Basically anything which proves you are a geek is good. And the most clever or entertaining shirts will get their wearers a prize.
Don’t forget, we are looking for plenty of banter between communities before the event and especially on the night itself. All strikes should be tweeted and the more photos/updates the better.
See you on the lanes
