Many thanks to Olivier for introduction:

It was a great night, y’all and great to catch up with everyone! Thanks to Ronjoy for the great organisation! Special mention goes to Kevin who won the “Bring Something Blue” competition by bringing in his own competitive game that could occasionally flash blue LEDs. 2nd Place went to a blue USB cable that lit up, brought by Matthew and 3rd place to a good old fashioned blue Smurf brought by Rex.
Thanks folks and see you next year!

and now to Martin’s magnificent report:

PSTOIC annual dinner – 11th January 2020

Special thanks go to Ronjoy for organising this year’s event (15 people). After a pre-Christmas planning meeting at the The Wheatsheaf off Oxford Street, it was decided to go with Sticky FINGERS in High Street Kensington again for this year’s venue. Rex and Alan suggested meeting beforehand at The Britannia.

This year’s theme was bring something Blue. Items included:

Thanks go to Andy for making the composite medal (full write-up). Kevin’s reaction game was especially popular, even the restaurant staff had a go.

    Kevin with his Bluetooth reaction game (with blue LEDs)
  • 2nd place
    Matt’s blue Illuminated USB Cable
  • 3rd place
    Rex’s blue Smurfs

Apologies for absence:

  • Russ Casey – Sorry guys – I’m not feeling well and will bail on tonight’s dinner. Shame too, as I was looking forward to bringing my blue thing. It’s a mobile retro games console. With heated seats! Have a great time.

Next year’s theme….

Bring something stoic
