MRU IT May need your MAC address if you don't have Wireless

If you are bringing a desk top, let MRU know your MAC Address, you can email me and I will pass it on.


If I don't hear from you, I will assume you are OK with Wireless.

I know we did something last year, but did not want to make assumptions, so went down to MRU and spoke with the IT Help Desk.



Get your profiles up there!

It is so much nicer to see a picture. Not only does it help me, but other people who see your games will see you too.

If you have not put in a profile yet, and have registered, email me with your profile user name and I will make sure you are added to the Calgary page.

If you have registered and have not received any messages from me for example for your t-shirt size, email me back.

See you in a few days! Count down starts.


Excited to see great jammers signing up

Hi all,

I will be contacting you all for t-shirt size again. Looking forward to the event and seeing you all. This will be a great time.

We have some of our best coming back and some newbies.

What did you think of the trailer? That was a jam (or 2) in itself. http://vimeo.com/34729381

Just a reminder, registration will end next Friday - Jan 20th

See you soon :) :)
