Recap: National Weather Festival 2012

We want to extend a big thank you to everyone who came by and visited us at the National Weather Festival on Saturday, November 3rd! Overall, the festival had a big turnout. It was great to see so many people excited about storm chasing and amped up about the idea of storm chasing tours. One booth visitor was so excited that she pointed from across the festival, exclaimed, “This is on my bucket list!! I have to do this!!” and ran over to our booth. Our tornado highlight footage from the past several seasons entranced folks as they walked by. You can see some of the same footage here!

Tour guides Chris McBee and Damon Bearden at our booth.

This is a great time to mention that we still have seats available on all ten of our 2013 tours! Whether you’d rather chase early-season storms in April, the height of the season in May in Oklahoma and Kansas, or the summer season in the North in June, we have you covered.

And as an additional thanks to all our NWF visitors, we’re extending our promotion through November 30th! How would you like to give someone the ultimate gift? A $500 deposit holds your seat, with the remaining $2100 due by March 15, 2013. This makes Rapid Rotation the best value you’ll find if storm chasing tours are in your plans. We hope you’ll add storm chasing to your bucket list and join us in 2013! Sign up today!
