Our next MN System Center User Group meeting will be Friday, June 15th from 9am - 5pm at Microsoft'snew Edina HQ building - 6th Floor, Lake of the Woods..

We're proud to announce that Wally Mead, Senior Program Manager, Microsoft will coming for our first all-day MNSCUG meeting! Odds are you already know who Wally is from reading his answers in the TechNet forums, watching a webcast, seeing him at a past session at MMS or seeing him recently in the labs there. He's signed up to do a couple dozen labs at MMS this year and if that isnt enough, he wrote them all too. (Yes, I used that line last year, but it holds true again this year).

Special thanks to Wally for making this happen. He'll be coming straight from TechEd to see us, so it's a very tight fit to squeeze in this one day for us. Because turnout was so high last year, we have the entire room at Microsoft reserved just for us. The receptionist on the 6th floor can give you a wi-fi password for the day should you need to logon for work.

We'll have various swag items. We have a box of BDNA t-shirts (not sure how many are in there), one Microsoft Touch Mouse, and 5 laptop bags (these are really nice ones).

Jarvis says that CDW can sponsor this meeting (lunch and drink), so thanks again, Jarvis! (Yes, I used that line last year, but it holds true again this year).
