Ok before we go into that I have to apologize for not taking more time to sit down and do a wrap up of SQL Saturday #53. To give you a decent excuse I was sick. Not a lot more to it other than I have been sick. I could tell you about how my voice has dropped two octaves or how a friend of mine said I should be in radio with this voice, nut this is not want I want to talk with you about. I wanted to give out Kudos for SQL Saturday #53. I can tell you that I have not been to a better location for an event of this size where the fee was 0. The only place I have been to that was all like this was a conference that Stephen Wynkoop did a number of years ago in Tucson. And it’s because they had a water slide.
So the award for the best location for a SQL Saturday by my opinion is…..
This location was an old casino on a lake. The neat thing is there was a number of places to eat, the registration was easy, and well it just was easy to look at.
This was an area outside the casino where we could sit and watch the traffic and the river. But it was not all fun and games. There was a lot of work to do and a lot of people that wanted to talk with everyone around. The networking was incredible. The hosts and I hope I get them all (please let me know who I missed). Bill Grazino, Bill Fellows, Kate, and Michael Gelphman. I meet a number of friends there like Lance Hara and Kathi Kalenberger. The even was just awesome all around, I even have some new friends like Bill in KC and Wendy from Chicago. What a great event.
Andrew who spent hours working and helping at the event just could not avoid the sleep, ok honestly none of us could, I just caught him on film.
