We are now in the home stretch so we’ve decided to finalize the prizes. Here is the list of what’s officially up for grabs on Saturday night.
Sifteo Game Cubes. There will be one for every member of the team. These look like an absolute blast, and we’re hoping to have some folks from Sifteo showing them off before the gig. First place winners also receive a copy of The SharpBrains Guide to Brain Fitness, because even the smartest team wants to keep that edge and defend their title next year.
This will be a combined Geek Pak from Plantronics and Coffee and Power. You’ve no doubt heard of Plantronics; Coffee & Power is an online marketplace where people can buy and sell small jobs. Each team member gets a gift certificate from Coffee & Power to give it a try, as well as — you guessed it — a coffee mug.
A case of wine from Cole Hardware. Don’t worry, they don’t make the wine themselves As well as gift certificates from Seesaw, a very cool studio and cafe in The Mission that specializes in education and support for kids and parents.
For the last team to get at least one answer correct, we have some more copies of The SharpBrains Guide to Brain Fitness; because — clearly — this team needs to get smarter.
Best Team Name:
Gift certificates from Sports Basement go to the team with the best team name. Early leaders are The Headlice Horsemen and Team PT&A, so clearly there’s a strong relationship between ‘best’ and ‘strangest.’ Only teams that pre-register are eligible for this award.
PG&E Corporate Challenge:
We’ve written about this already, but whatever team that registers for the PG&E Corporate Challenge is eligible to win $250 cash money, on top of any of the other awards.
Finally, I see no reason why sponsors aren’t also eligible to win prizes. The team from First Republic Bank has already registered. We hope to also see teams from all sponsors: Google, Wyse Technology, Circle Bank, Verizon Wireless and Wired.com. If a sponsor team wins, it’s on the up and up and there will be no whining.
Now that you know what’s at stake — not to mention bragging rights — get yourself registered.
