Springtime MeetUp Success - 2014

We broke the MeetUp record!!  The previous record was 48 MeetUps and this last round brought in over 50 with almost 300 Rainers in attendance!  I cannot express how much this means to me.  The official AR MeetUps began in Fall of 2011 and obviously they are still GOING STRONG!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the hosts that so graciously volunteered their time and efforts making these happen.  You didn't have to, you could have easily said "I can't I'm too busy, there are not enough hours in the day" but you didn't.  You know how important the AR fam bam is and you stepped up.  I thank you a million times over.

To all the attendees that made it out, thank you as well!  There would be no party unless you showed up so we are ecstatic that you saw the benefit and blocked the time off in your schedule to make it happen.  Many of you are new to the AR family and it excites me that one of your first experiences was a MeetUp.  Great things happen when Rainers get together!

And now, it's time for the fun stuff!  I mentioned in my announcement post that we'd be doing a little raffle for tshirts and free RainMakers for life.  I have 8 tshirt winners and 5 Rainmaker winners.  

Drumroll please.....
