    • Tickets are RED HOT!

      Dear Future Pacific NerdWest Attendees,

      We at Team PNW have been planning and posting the last couple months all the awesome stuff going on May 10th-12th:

      * Guests like Fargo, Tiny Tina, the writer of Borderlands 2 and the rest of the Hey Ash crew;
      * Game areas of the tabletop, card and video variety;
      -Outdoor entertainment filled with role-playing, foam swords and Nerf;
      * A vendors area with geeky wares from local artisans;
      * Local venues working together with us to geek up the night;

      AND besides all the fun, its a charity event supporting Childs Play, helping kids in hospitals have something to get their minds off of why they’re there.

      I don’t know about you, but that sounds like an event I’d attend.

      Sadly, no matter how pure your intention or how well you plan it, an event like this doesn’t come cheap: renting event space, booking flights and hotels for guests, all the costs of printing posters/flyers and advertising. It’d be easy if we could slay the dragon, steal its loot and get the reward for rescuing the princess, but we’re not exactly rich knights that can afford high-end armour and weaponry. The biggest fuel behind this event is our nerd passion and excitement to throw the most kick-ass party we can possibly plan for all the geeks in the Pacific Northwest. It’s also been amazing help having the dedicated vendors and sponsors that believe in our event and will be part of the driving force in making it an enjoyment for you. What we need now, to tighten all the last minute details and have all the legalities finalized, is for you to buy a ticket to the Bellingham nerd event of the season. PNW will be as strong and bad ass as we have it scheduled, and to aid in that, YOU need to click that link and purchase. It will also benefit us if you share our page or tell others about the event and get word-of-mouth flowing more. PNW is happening, we can promise that, but the sooner you get your tickets, the less likely we’re to break our controllers from stress.

      For the next week, to get ticket sales up, we will be having a sale on tickets as follows:
      As of Today – $13.37 per ticket
      Starting midnight on Friday – $15
      Starting midnight on Monday – $17.50
      Starting midnight on Wednesday – Returns to normal price of $20

      So CLICK HERE to buy now!

      Pacific NerdWest
      Bellingham, WA (2 hours North of Seattle and 1 hour South of Vancouver, BC)
      May 10th - 12th (Yes, Mother's Day Weekend. Bring your Nerdy Mom! smiley12.gif )


      Mary's note: The vendor lineup looks AMAZING. I'm thrilled to be able to meet these local merchants and procure some of their wares. Bellingham is a wonderful college town with tons of great food, terrific drinks, a continued strong support of the arts, and a wonderfully geeky atmosphere. I urge every single one of you to come up/down and see for yourself. smiley12.gif

      Please help us out by spreading this around. smiley12.gif

      smiley9.gifCALLING ALL ARTISTS
      Pacific NerdWest is, at its heart, a charity organization. We are raising money for Child’s Play.
      One of the primary ways we raise money is holding an auction on the day of the event. Some of it is custom or special edition nerdy items like video games, signed collectibles or promotional items. But a lot of it is custom artworks designed and donated by artists like you!
      So we’re asking you to be a part! If you have an art piece you’d like to submit, or if you have an idea for a piece you’d like to create, email our auction coordinator: laird@pacificnerdwest.com
      Include either an image of your piece, or examples of your work with a description of what you want to do for your Pacific NerdWest piece.
      If we choose your piece, you’ll get a free pass to Pacific NerdWest! You’ll also be helping the kids at Child’s Play.
      Let’s see some art!

      This gentleman right here is Neil Grayston and he will be at PNW!

      We need some love-spreading, guys. Seriously, yo. Lend me a hand and help me promote a new...yes, NEW fan event coming to Washington state in 2013!

      From the amazing people who brought you RvBCanWest, they have a new hotness called

      See what we did there? smiley8.gif

      Gaming, food, vendors, speakers, community content, charity auctions, internet and other media, AND MORE. All happening in beautiful downtown Bellingham, WA.
      I mean that, too. I lived there for 6 years. It's gorgeous.

      To ensure a terrific event, we've got @Abyss_GK (Asher) doing a fundraiser!

      Here's a photo of her at the Child's Play Charity Auction Dinner

      October 20 - that's this Saturday
      Playing the scariest video games ever...of all time while being livestreamed. You can bribe her to do goofy stuff with donations! All of the money raised will go towards Pacific NerdWest event costs! It's like you are helping run the show! How cool is that? This is a little more fun that Kickstarter because you can watch Asher get scared out of her wits!

      As we say with every fundraiser: Every dollar makes a difference. Donate and (or if you cannot donate) spread the word! Help the first ever Pacific NerdWest event AMAZING.

    • Freaky Fundraising for RvBCanWest!

      6 years ago

      RvB CanWest

      Aaaaw yeah, baby!

      Planning for 2013 has begun! Our first order of business is to raise some money for the next big event.
      Do us a favor, loves, and pass this around!

      Freaking Fundraiser starring Abyss_GK

      Those who know Asher (aka Abyss_GK) know how terrified she is of scary video games.

      Well, she has bravely volunteered her sanity to help us raise money for next year’s Canwest event.

      So, starting on October 20th, she will be playing scary video games LIVE, on the internet for the world to watch!
      For every dollar you donate, she will play for another minute, up to 24 hours. She will also be taking requests (within reason). Do you want her to play with an Iron Man mask on? How about play upside down? Want us to turn all the lights off on her? You pony up the cash, and we’ll make it happen!

      Stay tuned here for more details!

      Also, might I add: MUAH-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!

      Pledge a little money to see our event grow...and to see Asher scared out of her gourd. smiley8.gif

      If you couldn’t make it out to the event or if you weren’t able to win anything at the silents auctions we held, fear not! We’ve just launched our online selection of auctions, in benefit of Child’s Play Charity.

      Item listings and links to their respective eBay pages can be found here.

      Even if you can’t bid, you can still help out by spreading the word via facebook, twitter and other social media outlets.

    • Some last minute changes

      7 years ago

      RvB CanWest

      When the schedule was originally penned, The Avengers screening we had planned on seeing was listed at 7:20 pm. The movie times at the theatre change from week to week, and this screening time is no longer available. The nearest times are a 7:25 3D screening, and a 6:50 2D screening. We know that 3D is not everyone’s bag, and we don’t wish to force anyone to spend more money than they have to, so the screening we are now going to see as a group is at 6:50. The meetup time for this has also been moved up to 6:00.

      Our venue for the Sunday after party has also been changed, we are now going back to Moxie’s to take advantage of their private lounge. Address is 180 Georgia Street, Vancouver, same location as the Friday get-together.
