2014 Holiday Round-up

In addition to our regular meeting on Thursday, December 18th, we’re working on some additional events to bring the year to the close and have some fun during the end-of-year holiday madness.

First up is the small-format movie premiere sponsored by SimpliVity. We’re being treated to some product information and a private showing of the new Hunger Games movie, Mockingjay, Pt1 on Friday, November 21 from noon to 5pm. Attendance will be extremely limited and managed through EventBrite registration rather than the VMUG website.

Second is a vBeers/Happy Hour following the movie event—regardless of whether you attend the movie event or not—coordinated by the KCVMUG Volunteers committee. Unline your typical vBeers, we’re requesting donations (suggesting $20) to help the committee reach a goal of $700 to donate to The Salvation Army’s Childrens’ Shelter. This event is being held at Rock & Brews on W 135th Street in OPKS. We will be able to collect cash donations as well as have a couple laptops available for you to make a donation either directly to the Salvation Army or via another private EventBrite page. (If you plan to make a direct donation before the event, just bring a copy of your confirmation with a date from this month and we’ll count it towards our goal.)


March Madness!!

As mentioned earlier, we’ve been working on something special for VMUG members!

Come join the Steering Committee and our sponsor—PernixData—and get away from the small screen as we host an afternoon of college hoops on the big screens of the 810 Zone in Leawood (119th & Roe) on Friday, March 21st from 11am to 5pm.

Registration for the event is open now http://www.vmug.com/e/in/eid=1281
