Underground 9 re-cap: Go Glo Gadget Style
Wowsers! This message will self-destruct…..
Maverick Members and Repeat Offenders
Every year, brilliant minds from all over the world gather together to share their secrets and tricks of the trade. Their meeting place is always a mystery, keeping the outside world in constant suspense! From scavenger hunts to kidnappings to undercover outings and late night carousing….These operatives know how to have a good time! Check out what some especially sneaky ones had to say:

“Underground is a great place to connect and reconnect with people.”
(Yes, rumor has it that the infamous Will made many a connection….even bonding with a tree on the Nation’s Capitol…wink wink)

“I like that there are more vendors and that seemed to work well and I’m sure helps the economics of the conference. I think the flash mob was great once again. The room was comfortable and seems like maybe there were table cloths on the tables before – I liked them without.”
(Like myself, Doug was a big fan of the lunch tunnel)

“We LOVED the VIP room! It was a great place to connect with other Mavericks during the conference and a chill, comfortable place to listen to the speakers.
We also loved the scavenger hunt during the Maverick pre-day. It’s those kinds of events that really allow people to get to know each other!”

“…..the fun and games with the presenters was great (cat, safe, giant heads!) and the party was awesome fun. All in all, it was time very well spent and I left feeling like I had a number of 10x value takeaways which I know is always Yanik’s goal.”

Sounds like a great time eh? You have not heard the best part yet….
AJ Roberts is not only an incredible speaker, motivated business person, the worlds strongest man….he is also quite the romantic! As the organizers of the Maverick team took their places on stage and listened intently to AJ as he brought the event to a close, a distant yet profound buzz could be heard. It got louder and louder until finally, on oddly shaped contraption could be seen flying through the air towards the stage. It hovered above AJ and finally came to rest at his feet. He bent down and took something off the top. It was a golden egg. AJ popped open the egg as he turned and made his way towards the line of Underground organizers, eventually stopping in front of Gracie, his long time girlfriend. What happened next came as quite a shock not only to Gracie but to everyone in the audience who where holding their breath in suspense. AJ dropped to his knees and held up a ring that was so beautiful, you could see it sparkling from the back of the room. Gracie tearfully embraced him as she said yes….that girl’s smile could have lit up the entire room, it was so bright!
Congratulations AJ and Gracie!!
