You'll have no problem with BB & TLW there!

You could probably collect admission!

Thanks for posting that photo!  They say the only bad press is no press so I'm happy you chose to include me.  I feel compelled to set the record straight that I had NO alcohol that day.  Perhaps you camera flash?

Even without alcohol I had a great time and look forward to meeting again in the future.

Chris,

Sounds like a great idea!  You would be able to get a huge turnout down there and I'm sure that you'd find that it was worth your while.  Contact Lydia and she will assist you.

Good luck and have fun!

Lucky :)

Thanks for sharing the photos.  It was as if I was there.  Glad you were able to make it.  I'm hoping to be at the Hawaii gathering in Jan 2008 and attending CRS Sellabration!

Can you believe this was almost three years ago!!!  I just mentioned this event in a blog post about RainCamp Chicagohappening next week.  To compare this Windy City event to what RainCamp will be next week is pretty amazing.  I liked how in this post you mention the question du jour back then, how will Active Rain make money?  Well, now we at least have a better answer to that!  All the best to you Lucky, and all the other AR pioneers mentioned here.

Sara,

Yes, isn't that crazy!?!

I saw the post about the RainCamp in Chicago.  Unfortunately, Laura and I were unable to attend because of her Dad's passing and funeral in Austin, Texas.

Hope all is well with you!

Take Care!

Lucky :)
