That looks great, we enjoyed the RainCamp in Orlando last year. The 5th anniversary bash will be a blast I am sure.

One trembles with delight at the thought of attending....It's like having tickets to a Broadway show with 5 star dining after-wards with a limo thrown in...whats not to like here?...Take your "umbrella" because  lots of rain is coming to one area...

Posted by Richie Alan Naggar, agent & author (people first...then business Ran Right Realty ) over 9 years ago

Sounds like a great 2 days. I wish I could go but can't make it. I will have to wait until you folks come to Houston again. Lasdt yaer I could not attend as I was having hio replacement surgery..

I hope you come to the Washington DC/Virginia area soon. I'll keep my fingers crossed! There seems to be so much to learn about blogging and Active Rain.

Niki - Seattle is a little far for us but you guys have fun!!! Can't wait to see and hear all about it.

Hi Nikesh, it was nice to meet you at the Dallas RainCamp, am trying to work out the logistics of coming to Seattle for the Seattle RainCamp, but don't think I can swing it.  I was commenting to Bob Stewart about the possiblity of AR doing a simulcast for this Seattle Rain Camp because of the significance of it and especially the line up of speakers....he said it was something you guys were considering and would be looking into next week.  If there is any way you can swing it, it would be much appreciated.  I would gladly attend virtually if I can't make the trip.

Nikesh, I sure it will be a blast, unfortunately a little too far for me... this time

This line-up definitely sounds action-packed. I dont believe it's Raintime again.
