Sal Lama Makes People Stay Late

Last night’s CTSUG meeting was officially scheduled to end at 8:45pm.  When the first session ran a little long, it didn’t leave Sal Lama a lot of extra time to do his presentation.  At 9:00pm the room was still full, and group leader Bill Casnovsky offered the group a couple of options – wrap up with the prize drawing, or hand out some prizes and then let Sal keep going.  It wasn’t even close.

In my opinion, Sal is one of the best presenters in the world.  He left little doubt about that last night as most of the CTSUG members ended up staying well past 10:00pm.  A few people even stayed around a little longer to ask some more questions and to let Sal know what a great job he had done.

I have to give a little shout out to Bill as well.  During his opening remarks, he fired up the "Why You Should Attend SolidWorks World" presentation and related some of his own experiences and why he feels it’s important to attend.  He even had a copy of Muggs’ "SolidWorks World Survival Guide" on hand.

Also on hand last night…Rodel "Hole-in-One" Bautista, Steve Calvert, and Ed Ortiz, a former colleague of mine from Manitex.  It’s always great to see these folks.

The next CTSUG meeting will feature another terrific SolidWorks speaker – Avelino Rochino.  I wouldn’t miss it.
