Well…another BBQ on the Bay has come and gone – and the 10th
Annual Tech Expo certainly didn’t disappoint!
Thank you to the 400+ participants and attendees for braving
the Monsoon of 2014! I don’t think anyone escaped without getting wet.
The beginning of the night certainly was interesting –
umbrellas were flying, wardrobe changes actually happened, and I think there
was even a competition for trendiest wellies!
As the evening continued, the crowds rolled in and the party
started. Drinks were flowing, we "pigged out” on delicious food, and there were
plenty of familiar and new faces to catch up and connect with – all on the
beautiful shores of the Chesapeake Bay’s Bembe Beach. By the end of the night,
the skies were clear and the breeze off of the Bay made it hard to leave!
A special shout out and thank you to Wendy Hickok of Hickok Photography for her fabulous
photography (check out the Facebook
album), Bryan Goldberg and Mike Venezia of With the Film for capturing all of the
shenanigans on video and Orlando
Phillips for supplying Caribbean flair with live steel drum music.
And finally, THANK YOU to all of our BBQ on the Bay Tech
