Informal Networking On The Beach @ Okaloosa Island FL, June 8th, 2013

1 replies
Every June since 2007, I've hosted or co-hosted
an informal get together at The Crab Trap on
Okaloosa Island, Florida.

Okaloosa Island is in the panhandle, between Destin,
FL and Ft. Walton Beach, FL. The address of the
beach-side restaurant where we meet is:
The Crab Trap,
1450 Miracle Strip Pkwy, Fort Walton Beach, Florida

It's physically located "On The Boardwalk" on
Okaloosa Island!

We meet on the back patio at around 1pm CST, and
hang out there, or in the vicinity, for as long as
we want... we are usually there until 9-10pm.

Some people stay over and continue networking the
following day (Sunday). Some go to a local comedy
club (Howl At The Moon) that Sunday night. The
club features HBO quality commedians, dueling
pianists, and is a lot of fun... The show is for
adults, and the language used is STRONG!

The restaurant doesn't generally care how long we stay,
although they may move us to a different section of
the restaurant depending upon customer flow.

There are lots of picnic tables, pagodas, and other
hangouts in the area.

There is no cost for the gathering, except you pay
for your own meals and lodging. Most of us order
something at the restaurant, and many attendees stay
at one of the many local hotels... some turning it
into a nice family vacation.

The gathering is just online friend who know each
other via social media, forums like the Warrior
Forum, or perhaps have met at seminars.

Some attend just to hang out with friends.

Others attend for some SERIOUS networking and bring
along handouts and details of projects that they
are working on... realizing that this IS an
excellent opportunity to find JV partners.

The EVENT is listed on Facebook here:

Here are some photos from past gatherings (in

If you think that you can attend or would like more
information, please let me know. It's not essential,
but it allows me to let the restaurant know how many
to expect... they'll give us a section of the patio.
The whole gathering is VERY informal... and people
come and go as desired.

YOU are definitely invited!

Let me know what questions you have.

    As an update on this event which took place back on June 8th...
    in-case you're wondering if anything useful ever comes out of them...

    I'm certain that MOST of the attendees followed up with people
    that they met there.

    Here's just a fraction of what I've done in the month since then:

    - Got scheduled on Deanna Wharwood's radio show... coming up next week!

    - Scheduled Linda Rohrbach Layman on my radio show... coming up soon!

    - Co-host and recorded a webinar with Don Daniels. That recording will be in circulation for a very long time!

    Numerous other things are "in the works" :-)
