Just arrived in Norfolk?  Instead of hanging out by yourself at the hotel, connect at our Tuesday Night Meetup! Join hosts Lauren James and Allison Bradshaw at Grain at 7pm. This beautiful rooftop space atop the Hilton Norfolk The Main has great views of the water, 80 local beers on tap, a varied menu and a pool table. It's just a short 1 min walk from the Norfolk Waterside Marriott.

The 5th Annual NACIS Fun Run and Walk!
Join us for a casual fun run around Norfolk to get to see a bit more of our host-city outside of the conference rooms! Both runners & walkers welcome and we'll provide maps (of course) to make sure no one loses their way! Please note the schedule change to Thursday evening before NACIS night out (don't worry, you'll still have plenty of time to party!)
Meet in Lobby of the Hotel.

Lunch Bunch
Join fellow NACIS members for lunch on Friday!  We're reserving tables at a few restaurants close to the hotel.  At each table will be a veteran NACIS member to talk abut anything that comes up.  A great opportunity for first-timers or those who want to network or just be social.  Choose your restaurant and sign up at the registration desk by Friday at 10:00.

Geodweeb Geopardy!
Join in on a NACIS tradition, as our own Dennis McClendon channels Art Fleming to host a very mappy version of Jeopardy! Sign up at the registration desk if you'd like to join a team - winners take home great carto-prizes. Otherwise, join the audience to cheer on (and heckle) the players.
