The Central Texas SolidWorks User group celebrates its 10th anniversary with a huge meeting.  70 attendees, including SolidWorks VP's, special guests, and 4 original members are on hand to help usher in the next ten years.  Group leader Bill Casnovsky says he's still having fun.

Honorable Mentions
The 2nd annual NESWUC conference is held in Westford, MA.  More than 400 people attend, including myself.  That fact costs Tom Cote five bucks.

SolidWorks 2010 SP0 is released.  SolidWorks users are excited, and (Kevin) Jeff Sweeney tries his hand at French.

Devon Sowell finds something to do besides run a business, write a blog, write books, and take vacations.  He starts a SolidWorks User Group in Carlsbad, CA.

My official title is Senior User Advocacy & SolidWorks User Groups - but most people just call me "The User Group Guy". I've been a SolidWorks user since 1997, and was one of the founding members of the SWUGN Committee. Since starting the Central Texas SolidWorks User Group in 1999, my career path has led me to DS SolidWorks and a dream job supporting the SolidWorks User Group Network worldwide.
