I have always heard rumors about there being a point store open in the Rain but I never knew that Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker had one. I thought the point store was run by our friend Mucci but had to close down when he was booted from the Rain.

Seeing what is currently available in the point store surprises me because everything is so affordable so it wouldn't take much work to accumulate enough points to afford any of the extravagant choices being offered.

If I opened up a points store in the Rain, it would require people to accumulate at least 500,000 points before being eligible to purchase anything. I would try to cater the items available in the points store based on what I have found my friends in the Rain enjoy the most. There would certainly be adult libations available for Wayne Martin, some fun cat events for Nina Hollander, Broker, and fun sporting events for Kathy Streib to attend.

The thing I would want to be offered the most within a point store would be an epic road trip a la Carol Williams. I would want to visit each and every area where my friends in the Rain lived and be able to spend a week with each of them. This road trip might take a full year or more to complete but would be incredibly enjoyable!

Hey Brian England WOW a year long AR trip....now that would be a blast and I know Carol Williams could give you lots of tricks and tips!   As for the start of the Point Store I think it was Roger (and I miss him).  If I remember it right he had stuff like a washer/dryer, toaster, tshirt etc and we all had fun with the whole thing.  I opened the Point Store back up in 2014 and 2017 as everybody had gotten busy and kind of forgotten about it.  This year I figured we all could use more fun, not less, thus......all the fun trips to fun places with awesome AR members!

That would be so much fun to attend a college basketball game together Kathy Streib and perhaps if U of A plays against Houston or Kansas, we should try to make it happen!

Wow, you didn't know that Myrl Jeffcoat?  You definitely missed some good drama that occurred in the Rain which resulted in him and Conrad Allen getting expelled from the Rain, haha.

Brian England - I really like your point store and how you structured the narrative from beginning to end! You definitely put a lot of thought into it and did a great job. If per chance our paths cross again, I would embrace you with a big Texas hug (wet and soggy, or dry like cactus). I liked everything about this post.

Aww, your words are always so kind, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP thank you very much!  It is also high praise coming from someone as knowledgeable as you!  I definitely look forward to a big hug if our paths ever cross again.  I am thinking that there is a good chance that they will.

Sign me up for a road trip. Long before Carol Williams started taking her trips I've had that on my bucket list.  I look forward to the day I can hit the road!

Hi Brian:

Now THAT would be an epic road trip for sure. I know how much fun I've had meeting Rainers at meet-ups around the country over the years. It would be great fun to meet again, and to also meet up with new friends! And of course experiencing where everyone lives, too.

I agree, Jeff Dowler, CRS I always have fun meeting the people that I interact with on a daily basis.  I am glad that I go to the San Diego area often and get to see you when I am there.

What a fun post, Brian.  Conjured up a lot in my mind visiting your Vintage Store.  I would love to meet some of my acquaintances in Active Rain.  They are like friends and yet I have never personally met them. Just know I would love them.  I would love to meet you, Brian, and see your East Valley, AZ.
