In August 2009 we launched a little idea that resulted from a drunken conversation in a bar. We had no way to know that our first event would draw over 170 people or that the power would go out a few minutes prior to its start and people would stay and network well into the evening – power or no. Over the years, over 4000 people have attended our local events. Countless more have attended in Florida, New York, Alberta Canada, and Durban South Africa. A few spinoffs have developed in other cities around the world. We still hold the record for the most cars ever parked in a single night at Clyde’s Tower Oaks Lodge. In other words, it’s been a great run.
The time has now come for us to pause the local events. We have so much enjoyed spending time with you over the years and know that will continue in some shape and form. The financial and time commitment to hosting these events has become more than we can commit and it is time to move on. We wanted to go out with a bang, so thought there was no better way to do this than right after our biggest event of the year – our annual Holiday Toys for Tots drive.
Going forward we will no longer host monthly events in the DC area. We will continue with our annual Toys for Tots drive the 3rd Tuesday of December. That will be December 19, 2017, so mark your calendars now! We will also host 1 or 2 special events each year. Additionally, our events in Florida and Alberta continue, so feel free to stop into those on your travels.
Thank you so much for your support and love. We truly appreciate the time we have spent together and look forward to continuing those relationships.
With Much Love,
Ron & Angie
