Enter to win the SolidWorks World 2010 First Timer Contest

So maybe being the Official Internet Correspondent wasn't your thing (congratulations Chris). Maybe it was because you've never been to SolidWorks World before, and you weren't sure what you would be getting into. That's OK. Because here's another chance for you to go.

Our new contest is aimed at you, the SolidWorks user who's never been to SolidWorks World before. We want you to come join us and take part in all of the fun, learning, and networking in Anaheim. And this time, I'm not even going to ask you to do anything while you're there*. But you do have to convince us to pick you as the winner.

So here's what you'll need to do. Leave a comment on this blog entry telling your best "SolidWorks first-time" story. Maybe it's something funny that happened the first time you attended a user group meeting. Maybe it's the first time things really clicked for you learning SolidWorks in college. Or maybe it was the first time you saw a demo and your jaw dropped. Get creative. Just no stories about the first time you attended SolidWorks World. Because you wouldn't be a first-timer then, now would you?

And as much as it pains me to say this, you must be 21 or older to enter, and citizens of Brazil, Quebec and China are not eligible. You can read the complete rules and regs here:

Don't wait too long to enter–this contest ends at noon EDT on November 25, so start thinking!

* If you feel like meeting up the last day of the show and doing a quick video interview about the highlights of your experience, that would be great. But you know, only if you want to.
