Rising Tide Report

The Rising Tide Conference was successful, a bunch of people showed up and talked, most even listened. The New Orleans Yacht Club was great and got the air conditioning fixed Just in Time. The Cruise Director was in fine form. The Audio was handled ably by Ashley. Lisa counted the money. The Loud Indian Girl has a blow by blow of Rising Tide. The Main Mollusk has additional coverage. ScoutPrime traveled to New Orleans and reported on the happenings. I greatly enjoyed meeting G Bitch, she has a report on her experience getting to the NOYC.

The authors of DISASTER:Hurricane Katrina and the Failure of Homeland Security were the keynote speakers. They were great, Chris Cooper and Bobby Block spent the day talking and signing books.

Authors of The Wet Bank Guide, People Get ready and The New Orleans History Project have established The Rising Tide Blog.

Steve at Spot Coolers was also great. He was able to provide a temporary air conditioner on short notice and, when the club got the AC running, cancel it on even shorter notice.

A good time was had by all, the Dunbar's chicken was great. We heard they are reopening Monday at a new location.
