This One Time... At PASS Camp...

Like many of you, I have been finalizing my PASS Summit plans, getting ready for the trip to Seattle.

For the past week, my girlfriend has been asking weird questions like, “Have you packed your sun screen?” This makes no sense because there’s no way I’ll get a sunburn in Seattle in October. When I ask her about it she just giggles and moves on.

She’s also reminded me to bring other things such as a bathing suit, hot dogs, and marshmallows. When she mentioned the marshmallows, I finally got it. She’s teasing me about PASS as if I’m going to summer camp. And if you think about it, summer camp is a pretty apt metaphor.

As I type this I am really excited about the trip. I’m looking forward to seeing all of my friends, many of whom I haven’t seen since last year, and doing all sorts of fun “activities” with them. We may not be going hiking, fishing, or swimming, but we will be networking, singing at SQL Karaoke, and attending the vendor parties.

So, here’s to all of my PASS Camp buddies. I can’t wait to see you again this year.

Oh and at camp this year, I’ll also be attending the PUSS Party. God knows what’ll happen. I just hope nobody brings a flute.
