FAILcamp is an open event for folks to share their stories and lessons taken away from failure. It's also a valid excuse to hit the docks and overrun the swanky QCYC yacht club with hedonic nerdery.
We believe that it’s time to give our personal fail some tough love and talk it out over beer!
Join us for a brief, rousing introduction followed by camaraderie, beer, and
show-and-tell. We’ll present a little about failure through the ages, mining your personal suck, maybe some science, pithy quotes from people you may or may not respect, and share some failure stories of our own.
Then it’ll be your turn. If all goes to plan, you may even win in our friendly “race to the bottom” for the most public, most expensive, or most ridiculous Story of Fail.
Joey DeVilla will be ringleading an evening of commiseration and comraderie at the Queens City Yacht Club on Algonquin Island, alongside the good folks at Refresh Events.
Your printed admission stub is good for a free ferry ride to and from the docks, starting at 6pm. Failure show-and-tell will be complimented by some fantastic food, and some freebie drinks if we can swing it. Yacht club kitchen will be open, as well as a cash bar, and we'll have some surprise guests and DJ's close out the evening.
