We have an announcement!

??If you thought you could keep reading to find out what it is, sorry, it’s far too special to reveal in a blog. But don’t worry—we’re throwing a party in its honour! There’ll be free food, drinks, live music and tens of thousands of dollars in tuition and prizes.??

Where: 301-771 Vernon Ave?

When: Saturday April 2nd, from 12 to 3pm??

Here’s a bit of back story: ??In 2008, a little piece of fruit caused a big stir. The Victoria School of Business and Technology (VSBT) made headlines when Apple accused them of infringing on their trademarked logo.??

They got international attention from media including CBC, CTV, CNN and the Globe & Mail. Check out this video from CTV news (which actually features Chris Boag, not Dieter Gerhard). ??It doesn’t matter whose side you’re on—it’s all in the past.

It’s now three years later and we have an exciting announcement that’s 100% our own.?? Along with the aforementioned food, drinks and music, here’s what we’re giving away:
•    1 iPad
