It's that time again. Time for everybody to come face to face and get out from behind those monitors, keyboards, and thousands of miles of Internet.

What: 2006 Chief Delphi Web Hug
When: Thursday, April 27, 2006 12:00 Noon
Where: Courtyard between Hall C and the Dome. (map (http://www.chiefdelphi.com/misc/webhug.png); the big orange/black 47)
Who: You have a forum account? You're invited.

Mike Martus (from Chief Delphi) will give a quick hello, let people meet & greet, share some statistics and hand out some goodies. It shouldn't take too long (15-20 minutes).

This year, again, we will be having a raffle. It will work the same way as last year. Starting tonight at Midnight (Eastern) we will be giving away 15 raffle tickets each hour. You may get one this coming week, and one next week, for a total of two chances to win. You'll see the link show up top above the spotlight -- it will show for 1 minute (the 47th minute of each hour). We'll be picking the winners before the webhug, to save some time, but you must be present to win, and pick up your prize -- a limited edition 2006 web hug t-shirt.

People have mentioned that in the past they forgot about the webhug because Thursday is a very busy day. So, again like last year, you can get a text message reminder. Go into your user cp, click Text Mesasge Reminders (http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/textremind.php?) and set up your reminder.

If you don't know what the Web Hug is, and want to learn about previous years, see these links:

I was wondering when this thread would start.

I'll be there providing I'm not fixing anything during lunch, which is what I'm usually doing on Thursday.

Joe Matt

I'll see what I can do........

It will be an excellent break from driving for me. At least Thursdays are significantly less hectic :D

Maaan... I missed that stuff last year. I think that my name was called for a raffle shirt too. This year, the "Bill and Andy Show" in the FIRST Conference sessions is from 10-10:45 on Thursday, and not at noon. I will not miss the hug.

I'll be there again this year :) I'm assuming that Courtney B from 1023 (2005 Web Hug T-Shirt Winner) will be present as well. :)

DOH!

Can't make the web hug this year, I'll be over at da Vinci for Vex. Come visit me so I dont feel left out!!! I will accept all hugs...ahem...thank you.

That picture of Corey reminds me of this one during build season (http://chiefdelphi.com/media/photos/22616) of Ashley of Team 1511, and the notable lack of sharpieing.

This is my first year attending Nationals, and I just started getting active on CD too (joing in 2004, didn't post for 1.5 years). I'm looking forward to meeting people there, and maybe getting a T-shirt ;-)

04-06-2006, 09:25 PM
This has probably been thought of already, but have you guys thought of selling CD tshirts for people to buy & get signed at the webhug? It could be a great fundraiser for CD if you guys are still in the need of sponsorship.

Hmm... sell a tshirt & sharpie for $15 :)

Providing that The robot is in working order, and I am not suffering from starvation and sleep deprivation, I'll be there.
However... My cell phonne is on the fritz, and I am a very forgetful person, So if anyone sees me in Atlanta, Could you remind me about it ??? :)

Dillon Compton

FIRST has rules against selling stuff at their events. Sorry.

Up one ticket, and now I've got two text messages that will hopefully remind me to get over there.

I'm sure there is nothing against pre-sales, and taking delivery at a FIRST event.

04-08-2006, 04:49 PM
Got one.

Would it be in bad taste to wear the web hug t-shirt I won last year to the web hug? (Just wondering, probably not going to do it anyway)

neo
04-08-2006, 04:50 PM
Got one as well.

This will be my first webhug. It sounds fun.

That's like the guy who wears the concert shirt of the band he is seeing AT the concert..

Don't be that guy!!!!

Now...*prays to every god he's ever heard of*...Lets let me have the time to make it out of the pits this year, okay universe?

04-11-2006, 12:00 PM
I went last year and won a shirt. It was really cool to get to see everybody. I'm really looking forward to going again! I hope it isn't as hot this year as it was last year. Large group hugs and muggy heat don't usually mix...should be fun either way.

Brandon Martus
04-11-2006, 12:33 PM
