Informal Networking On The Beach @ Okaloosa Island FL, June 21st, 2014

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 comedians, dueling
pianists, and is a lot of fun... The show is for
adults, and the language used is STRONG!

I plan in being in town all the following week, so
if you want to stay over and meet during that week,
we can also arrange that!

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

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
Facebook Albums):

Note: You may need to be logged into Facebook to
view some of these links!

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.

    hi Willie, thanks for sharing this. I'm fairly new to the WF, and IM in general, and was just browsing to see if there was anything going on near me in hopes to connect with a few more experienced marketers.

    I'm a web designer/developer living in Fort Walton Beach so i'll definitely be attending this year.

    thanks again,
