Let the (Geek) Games Begin

Attention athletes! That’s right, there’s a mere five weeks before the 15NTC kicks off in Austin. After three days of powerful sessions, training, and networking, 15NTC culminates in one epic event: the annual NTC Geek Games. It’s time to strap on your pocket protectors, hop on your segways, and get ready for fun!

This year’s games offers a myriad of challenges for the elite geek in training. Thrill-seekers can careen down a segway obstacle course (may we suggest a helmet?) For a true Texas challenge, strap on your cowboy boots and saddle up for a fierce mechanical bulldog ride (yes, you read that right).

If you’re more the competitive type, we suggest practicing your ping pong skills to challenge your conference cohorts to a dynamic duel of paddles, or brushing up on your nerd bingo strategy.

Perhaps you’re more of an endurance athlete? We recommend a regimen of lego lifts and BURPies to prepare for creating your lego masterpiece that will have competitors shaking their bricks.

We know that working for a nonprofit requires a lot of strategic thinking, and grit in the face of opposition. So we have a feeling you’ll already be in top shape to face off in the board game tournament.

Proper hydration is of crucial importance in competition, so there will also be a coffee hub where you can connect with teammates, size up the competition, and fuel up for game play.

Start practicing now to put your geek skills to the ultimate test.
