We want to thank the folks at New Horizons Computer Learning Center for hosting many of our meetings in 2014. Unforturnately, their success in booking night classes has resulted in recurring space conflicts with our meetings. In order to provide the stability of meeting location that our members have said they prefer, our friends at Eagle Datagistics have offered their facility at
111 2nd Ave NE, Suite 1006, St.Petersburg, FL 33701, as our standard meeting location for 2015.

Based on member feedback, we will be holding our meetings on the 4th Wednesday of each month starting with the January 2015 meeting. In order to help avoid traffic on the way to the meetings, we'll move up our start time with refreshments and networking at 4pm and the presentation starting at 4:30pm. Please let me know what you think about these changes. Based on your feedback, we may make further adjustments to accomodate the most attendees possible.


How many miles has your SOUG backpack travelled?
When we are selecting our conference gear for TechDay, one of our goals is to provide something that would have a useful life beyond the day's event. For at least these attendees, we seem to have attained our goal.

Long-term member John Rehg started this theme by sending me these pictures of his SOUG backpack in Kaua'i, Hawaii a couple weeks after our event.

Charter member Mary Schilling raised the bar (or at least the altitude) by sending me these pictures from her recent visit to Machu Picchu, Peru.

If you've got a picture of your SOUG gear you'd care to share, mail us a copy. We'd love to hear from you.
