The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

ActiveRain West Coast Spring Meetup

Key look!  Up in the sky... It's a "RainCamp!" No... It's a "RainStorm!" No... It's a Spring-Meetup!?! YES!!
I was going to just  REBLOG THIS, but it's too exciting not to announce myself! :-)


" Hey Brad, where are you, I've got this really cool idea... "


IT'S TRUE!
  We are having an ActiveRain Spring Meet-Up in the San Francisco Bay Area for all AR members and their guests who would like to join us.  Even if you're not from or live in the SF Bay Area, maybe you're just visiting friends or family, we'd love to have you come join us! What is a Meet-up?

ActiveRain's very own Kerrie Greenhalgh recently announced "The National AR Spring Meet-Up" Day!

The comment that I left on Kerrie's post seemed to spur up some interest and generated some calls from other AR folks who have successfully done these in the past. Kathleen Daniels, and Karen Crowson have joined in and put together what promises to be an awesome Spring Meet-up for anyone and everyone in or around the San Francisco California Bay Area. We already have folks coming from as far south as San Jose and as far north as Sacramento.

Where will it be? Here's the first clue I'll give you...


and no, this is not at my house... lol~

I'm really excited to be a part of this and want to thank these two ladies for making it happen. 

Here's the When, Where, What, Date & Time: By Karen Crowson

Here's a little spin on the details of the event as well: By Kathleen Daniels

And finally, yes... the rumor is true, I'll be bringing some surprise guest(s) and a few entertaining ideas and surprise elements specially created and designed just for this event.  The majority of the rumors you'll probably start hearing will most likely all be true... and that's all I can say right now, but I do hope that you'll come out and join us!!

Brad these meetups are wonderful events.   I am in the process of putting the very first meetup in the Mid Hudson Valley.

Hi Jennifer - we're really excited about putting this together over here in the Bay Area.  It's really going to be a lot of fun and a great networking opportunity as well.  The wine tasting is just an "added-bonus" :-O  Seeing old friends and making some new ones is my favorite take-away from these things. 

Wish you could be there at ours.  :-)

I have attended Dallas area events and enjoyed meeting blog pals!  What fun it would be to attend the Bay area event!

Posted by Sharon Parisi, Dallas Homes (United Real Estate Dallas ) over 7 years ago

That sounds like a lot of fun Brad.  I wish I was on the West Coast so I could attend.  Sounds like it will be filled with energy and great people.

Still wrapping up and confirming a few things, but no matter what, I'm certain this will be more fun than one person should be allowed to have!

<BIG SMILE!!!>

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 7 years ago

Rebecca - hmm...  maybe we should do a live streaming or simulcast for all these meetups, kinda like they do on New Year's Eve when televised stations show what's happening in each major city.... This way all the long distance friends good connect "LIVE" in real time. 

Ya got me thinkin here, let me see what I can come up with???
