Seattle Mind Camp 5.0: November 22-23 at Synapse!

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Upcoming, Announcements

When you guys said you wanted us to go back to the 24-hour format for Mind Camp, we decided to make sure that happened, no matter how long it took to find the appropriate venue. Thanks to Mind Camp attendee Scott Bright, we’ve got it - Synapse, located in downtown Seattle. Never heard of Synapse? Well, that’s kinda the point - they do some amazing things there, but no one knows it. They also just happen to have an amazing space for us to use for a 24-hour Mind Camp event. So it’s on.

Seattle Mind Camp 5.0 will start on November 22 at 11:00 AM, and will conclude the following morning, November 23 at 10:00 AM.

Here’s the address:

Synapse
1511 6th Ave
Seattle, WA 98101
View Google Map

Here’s the Facebook event page.

Go ahead and spread the word, we think this will be the best Mind Camp event we’ve ever done, because the space is casual, and fits in perfectly with the things we want to do. Plus, they have some really cool stuff to show off. You gonna be there?


Mind Camp 5.0 is on - we need a venue!

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Upcoming, Announcements

Alright gang, I know we’ve been waiting a while to secure sponsorship to move forward with Seattle Mind Camp 5.0. I am happy to announce that we have secured it! Now all we need is a venue. The last place we used, the Tukwila Community Center, doesn’t have a weekend open for us until sometime in November. Even if we went with that, there would be a few rooms that we wouldn’t have access to if we did a 24-hour event. So the question is, are you guys okay with an event that is less than 24 hours (say, around 14 hours instead?) if it means we get to hold the event in a fantastic venue? Or should we look elsewhere for a place that would allow us to return to the full 24-hour format?

If we should look at other venues, suggestions are always more than welcome. Hit us in the comments with your thoughts!
