HubCamp at HubPages HQ in San Francisco - Thurs Aug 18th

    Hey Bay Area (and beyond?) Hubbers,

    We'll be holding a special intermediate, topically-focused HubCamp at HubPages Headquarters on Thursday, August 18, from 6-8 pm.

    The focus will be on turning household projects, like repairs, fixes, and renovations, into great Hubs. This will tie in with the Clogs to Coins contest, sponsored by Drano Snake Plus, which begins the following Monday. We'll be sharing tips and tricks on what we're looking for among entries, and how to make a great home plumbing Hub.

    What we'll have for you:
    - food & drink
    - hardcover HubPages notebook
    - HubPages t-shirt
    - HubPages mug
    - the Drano Snake Plus
    http://s4.hubimg.com/u/5295811_f248.jpg

    The only cost will be transportation and, if you need it, parking near our office.

    Interested in attending? Please send me an email!

      Sounds ideal for me! Not too far of a drive either. Thanks for offering the chance to get HubPages first hand training Jason.
      Save me a t-shirt!

            It all sounds wonderful.  I wish I was able to attend, but unfortunately I wont be able to because I live much too far away.

      Alas, I am on the far side of the country. Throw in transportation and I will be there in a heartbeat though. Hey, it was worth a try. laugh

      We need a HubCamp in Atlanta.... is that a possibility?

        We had a terrific one this past March. We don't have any current plans for another, but we will post something in this forum when we do!

    Sounds like good stuff, a bit to far for me as well, make it a great time...

    How far from BART, and which station???  I just might be able to squeeze it in..

    1. Jason Menayan profile image60
      Jason Menayanposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      We're about a 5-minute walk from Montgomery Station (the east entrance off 2nd and Market).

      DzyMsLizzy!  I hope you can make it!

        I hope so too, K9--I will surely try!
        It is a tossup which will be cheaper:  gas and parking in SF or BART ticket from end-of-line east bay.  BART's prices have gotten rather outrageous since I last rode.  :-(

    Drano Snake Plus?  Is it just me or is it getting warm in here? lol

    Hope you have a good turnout Jason.  Judging from the HubCamp in Houston, it is well worth attending these events.  Hopefully you will share tips online with the rest of us who live too far away to be able to attend in person.  Thanks!

      Thanks, Peggy! I hope we all have as nice a time as we did with you and your fellow Hubbers in Houston. smile

    P.S.  I may ask if I can bring a non-Hubber guest,(that would be either my husband or daughter). As a senior citizen, I do not like to travel about in the evening alone.

    1. Jason Menayan profile image60
      Jason Menayanposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Hi DzyMsLizzy: Yes, you can, although we're going to be skipping most of the basic material so they might feel lost if they don't know a thing about HubPages. Maybe you could help get them up to speed beforehand? (Not necessary, but that way they might find the HubCamp interesting)

    Wow, I REALLY wish I could go to this. I'm a bit far -- closest city is Chicago. Any HubCamps near Chicago any time soon? I'd drive as far as hmmm:
    Chicago
    Madison
    Cleveland,Columbus,Cincinnati
    Detroit
    Upper Peninsula
    Indy

    Oh wow! You know what would be a awesome? A hub contest of an expense paid trip to a hubcamp!

    1. Jason Menayan profile image60
      Jason Menayanposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      That is a nice idea! We don't have any HubCamps currently, but when we do start planning them, that would be a very nice thing to consider. smile

    I am so sad I am much closer to San Fran now but no money to travel to this HubCamp!  Hopefully, the next one at HPHQ, I can find a way to make it.  I owe Maddie about a million hugs!  smile

      Virtual hugs! (((((carpesomediem)))))

      I look forward to meeting you at the next one!  Or just any time you're in San Francisco!

    I will find a way to make it happen!  smile
