Make New Friends

Family Friendly Events

In July of 2015 I started a group on Meet Up and called it the Hawkes Bay Geeks Guild.

My goal was to get three or four members so we could play board games and go see geeky movies together. It grew rapidly and soon my dream of making a couple of friends was replaced with a dream to create a community. A Facebook group was created which now has over 800 members and see regular posts about all things geeky.

Monday Night Board Games became a popular, well-loved event and was joined by an arsenal of other events like family outings, movie nights, dinner events, an annual quiz night, road trips and scavenger hunts. In 2018 we hosted our first ever BayCon; a weekend long board game convention and soon after that, the guild became an official incorporated society.

With each passing year the guild continues to grow. More friendships are formed, new board games are discovered and more discussions over ‘which superhero would totally kick some other superhero’s butt’ are had. The goal keeps evolving and growing with the community and I’m excited to see what the future holds for us.

Final Reminder: Annual Geeks Guild Quiz

Good Evening Guildies!
This is a final call/reminder/update/thing about our ANNUAL GEEK’S GUILD QUIZ this coming Monday!!! 😃
We’re asking that people please, please, please RSVP somehow. We have a MeetUp event AND a Facebook event.
If you’re not happy/comfortable doing either of those for whatever reason, then feel free to just straight up message me.
We’re expecting ~30+ folks, so priority will be given to those that HAVE RSVP’d in the event that we are over capacity.
For the Quizzing itself, we’re going to have people ‘sign in’ when you arrive, so we can organise the random groupings. If you have a special buddy that you’d very much like to be in the same team with, you can sign in as a pair.
So join us to see who will take new ownership of the fabled “Baby Groot of Great Quizness” that everyone totally remembers exists!

Donations Update

Well Done Guildren! With everyone’s generous donations we’ve raised $1100 so far. That gets us over the line for our 3rd complete set of table and chairs.

We are still accepting donations, so if you haven’t donated yet, and want to, you still can.

The table and chair sets will spend most of their time at Riverbend Road so they are available for Monday Night Games, but they will be available to borrow for all paid members of the Geek Guild Association
