Scrubfest was a great success, with probably close to 400 attendees there.
The camera card failed during recording, so we don’t have video of my presentations. Hope you made it!
This was the first SCRUBFEST and it went very smoothly overall. A few people got lost on the way, a few others had some issues paying online, but I’d say we were 95% fine on everything. The tent was big enough, there were plenty of chairs, the parking worked out, the nursery was well-organized, and almost all the vendors totally sold out. Plus I got to meet many of you who I knew only by name and not face. And there were some great kids there, too. I ended up sharing my mid-afternoon snack with a beautiful blonde baby who couldn’t understand why I had a banana and she didn’t.
I believe the audience went home with a huge amount of inspiration and ideas. Mark Bailey’s talk was excellent as well, plus we had lots of books there that were flying off the table.
Next time we’ll try to have easier directions and more vendors. Sam is already talking about doing SCRUBFEST II in spring. I would be game!
Later this week my son should finish a post sharing his view of the event – stay tuned.
