A quick wrap up from all on the Meetdraw 14 team for those of you who missed the event or possibly bailed due to the weather… we know who you are!
Given that we opted for a “Summer Beach Party” in June, we’d be forgiven for thinking we could rely on the sunshine to adorn the event but alas the English weather let us down once more. From blazing sunshine on the Wednesday and even on the morning of Thursday the 14th June, it turned to torrential rain and gale force winds just in time for us to serve the hog roast (courtesy of Folk). Luckily we had a backup plan in the form of the community hut/room on the top of Branksome Dene Chine where all that turned up could huddle, keep warm and partake in the free beers from White Circle Productions.
Now I suppose you can work out that indoor hog roast and beers worked out just fine with several people commenting that”…it was easier to network due to the confined space…”. Something you may not have expected to work in the rain was our as advertised Twitter treasure hunt and we fully expected this to flop due to the torrential rain. How wrong we all were! Of the 120 or so people at Meetdraw 14, we got at least half of them to partake in the treasure hunting fun. In good spirits, team after team braved the weather to follow our clues to the prizes! Here’s a little pic of some of those brave soles…
Despite the weather, people made an effort to come down when the easy thing would’ve been to cry off. We think that says a lot about Meetdraw but please leave us your comments and feedback below and stay tuned for announcements of the next event, Meetdraw 15, in September. Almost forgot to mention the up coming conference also in September… the line up this year is terrific!
