S<3H: Makers' Field Day
Sunday, September 7, 2014 from 2:00 PM to 11:30 PM (CDT)
**** Please note this event is only open to developers/engineers/programmers, designers and PMs who work on software and hardware products. "Product people", so to speak.****
In July the Software<3Hardware crew brought you EEPROM (The Ultimate Techie Dance Bash). You came, you saw, you boogied your chucks off.
And now, we're ready to rock your worlds again, nerd-style. Catalyze Chicago & Polymathic are proud to present Makers' Field Day (Software VS. Hardware!), September 7th in Humboldt Park, in the field near the Boathouse at (enter at California/Evergreen and walk west -- you will see signs!).
Think: Field Day meets Block Party meets Double Dare! And winner takes all! Loser gets slimed!
- "Scope Creep" - tug of war - 100pts
- "Cofounder Cripple" - 3-legged race - 100pts
- "Do-While/If Then Loop" - long stations relay -200pts

Show your pride year-round in your very own team shirt designed by the lovely staff designers at Polymathic (red for software, and blue for hardware). Earn undisputed bragging rights with wacky and [possibly] robot-esque trophies from Catalyze.
Plus booze and food are included, with a coffee booth on standby.
Game on, right?
2pm-6pm: Field day activities, with coolers and snacks on hand. Please make sure to eat lunch before you arrive. You will need the energy! Please wear shoes suitable for athletic activity/being in a park!
6pm-whenever: Afterparty at The Living Room, 2423 W North Ave! You may want to bring a change of clean clothes. Dinner (hotdogs, burgers, veggie burgers, etc.) and booze will be provided. Please note: this event is BYOC (bring your own craft beer) if you don't feel like drinking PBR and Old Style.
Rain-day plans include indoor festivities at The Living Room just east of Humboldt Park.
We're looking forward to seeing you in September. May the force be with you all - and may the best nerds win.
