So a Warriors Fan Walks into a Cleveland City Park…

The timing could have been better.  I’m a life long Warrior’s fan, and was about to be surrounded by happy Cavalier’s fans, but that didn’t stop me from attending the annual NEOSWUG Summer Cookout meeting last week.

I could smell the burgers and brats as I walked up to the pavilion in Furnace Run park, but had to make sure I was in the right place when I saw this sign.

What is NEDSWUG? Or did they run out of O’s?


It didn’t take long to figure out I was in the right place, so I headed out to the grills.

Craig Riedel and Tony Hodos – men are here, cook meat!


The NEOSWUG members got on board with a mess of side dishes and desserts.

Lots of side dishes


The meeting itself was great too.  A couple of the members got up and showed off some projects that were working on (or had worked on), and 3DVison’s Robert Warren gave a very nice look at Simulation Xpress.

Cory Brooks and Pete Gillespie showed off some SOLIDWORKS projects.


I’m glad I finally got the chance to attend the NEOSWUG Cookout meeting, and I look forward to a return trip next year.

Hosts Craig Riedel and Jerry Kassil – Thanks guys!!
