=========================

Special Event: "Ultimate Language Shootout III"

The last two times we held this event it was a blast. Even if your
just coming to watch/vote there really is no other event like this
anywhere in Chicago or anywhere else. Where else can you talk about
any language you want to an attentive crowd? See how Python compares.

This month will be held at the exciting new venue DRW Trading. They
have plenty of room and have offered to cater the event. What fine
hosts they will be!

This will be the best competition ever hosted by ChiPy.
