SWUGN Summit Season Kicks Off in Style

A late start to the 2012 SWUGN Technical Summit season didn't detract from the excitement, as more than 70 SolidWorks users converged on tiny Plymouth, Indiana for the SWUGN Summit – South Bend.

The venue turned out to be perfect, even if I was a little skeptical about holding the event 30 miles south of South Bend. It took me two trips down a country road to find it, but everyone arrived on time and we didn't have a single no-show.  Hats off to Paul Kellner for the suggestion.

Some of the presenters were familiar to SolidWorks users – Ed Eaton, Jason Raak, and Paul.  Peter Fischer (CISUG) made his SWUGN Summit debut, and new guy on the block Suresh Krishnan made quite an impression.  Representatives from all four area resellers were also there – thanks Adrian, Bill, Ryan and Greg.

All in all it was a great start to the 2012 SWUGN Technical Summits.  Next stop is Baton Rouge, Louisiana and then on to Toronto

I'm really looking forward to the rest of the year's events.
