2007 Chief Delphi Web Hug!

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: 2007 Chief Delphi Web Hug
When: Thursday, April 12, 2007 12:00 Noon
Where: Courtyard between Hall C and the Dome. (map; 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). I may not be able to make it (working a field for IFI) this year.

As in previous years, we will be having a raffle this year. It will work the same way as last year. Starting right now, 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 2007 web hug t-shirt. It is white this year, so bring your Sharpie markers and get some signatures. Just added (4/6): a special prize in addition to the t-shirt.

People have mentioned that in the past they forgot about the webhug because Thursday is a very busy day. So, again like previous years, you can get a text message reminder. Go into your user cp, click Text Mesasge Reminders and set up your reminder.

The web hug sounds like so much fun.

I hope my team gets off the wait list and goes to Atlanta…I can’t wait to meet all the rest of the chief delphi addicts.

Thank you to Mike & Brandon Martus for putting this together for everyone you two are truly an amazing duo.

Psst… its the 47th minute…and no raffle button?

I’ll be there for my 5th year in a row. Who’s the next fountain victim? I bet Conor, but if I get help we can get Adam too.

I will set aside time to be there.

It was broke – check back at 10:47 EDT :wink:

aw nuts, I’m flying in on Thursday night…oh well

I’m not on the drive team this year, so hopefully I can make it.

The CD-47 Bot probably stole the first 15 raffle tickets.

I’ll be there to make it 3 in a row, I’ll probably be bringing a towel too (no it won’t be towel day, however towel day is coming up soon).

… will be making and apprearance for the 5th year in a row. =)

So what’s on the list that I need to bring?

Oooo… I’m a newbie. I can’t wait!


I’ll probably be there as well. :slight_smile:

Back to Back years for me, I will be wearing my 2006 Autographed Web-Hug Shirt that I got at IRI.

Five in a row for me too! I’ll be there. Thanks to a handy text message reminder (because I’d lose my head without my cell phone calendar!).

This is the 3rd year my team will be there, and the 3rd year I’ll be on the drive team. Hopefully i can come, i still have my raffle ticket from last year on my shelf :smiley:

YAY!!! Got a ticket. I printed it to PDF… Does this count?

EDIT: I just realized why it was so natural for me to get one of these tickets quickly… My wooting-off skills do me good :stuck_out_tongue:


Sure. Mike or Brandon isn’t going to come after you if you mess a little thing up. They are nice. =)

I got my ticket too! (now I can go to bed…yes I stayed up to get a ticket…)

When they do the raffle, do they call by number or by name?

I just saved the source code and the image thats on the ticket, I’ll print it at school tomorrow.

Last year they called by name. A LOT of people didn’t bring their tickets. It was easier to just identify by username. (Hurray for WAIs!)

I’ll be there. Anyone has license to drag me out of the pits at 10 'til noon on Thursday. TechnoKat kids usually do a good job of making sure that Alan Anderson and I are there. Plus, Alan has this fancy PDA that zaps him when the time gets close.


If I can remember (no cellphone) I’ll be there… I forgot last time I was in ATL in 2004…
