Random NUMBER Lottery-Based Selection Process
(1) STEP 1: Speed Dating registration will begin 1 hour before the event session. Times are listed below. Come to the speed dating rooms 211A/B/D in the SJCC for a chance to register and participate. Attendees may participate in the lottery up to max 3 times per day. Selected attendees may only go to one speed dating session as space is limited.

(2) STEP 2: Once the lottery opens 1 hour prior to the session, our staff personnel will assist you in the process. We require a minimal amount of information from you and only staff personnel are handling the registration process. Each attendee who is interested in participating will be in line for a chance to draw a random lottery number and know immediately if they randomly selected a winning lottery number. The numbers are explained below:

As someone who frequents the downtown area, a good time to hold the speed dating would be between 6-7, in case a couple really hit it off and they could out for drinks or something that same night. Its not too late at a time when the local weirdos are out (but hey they're always out and about)

Hello,

If you are working during the Staff Speed Dating time 8-10PM, you wouldn't be able to participate in the event. Please make sure it is approved and OK by your department head to participate in this event. We don't condone ditching your shift for this event, as we are all committed to volunteering for our respective departments.

If you are working at 7PM but will be available by 7:45PM the very latest, then you can just stop by and pick up a raffle any time 7 - 7:45PM. Our process this year is not dependent on first-come, first-serve as it is randomized lottery. The very last people who draw the numbers may be able to get in as well.

Hope this helps!
