IDUG North America - May 18-22, 2008 - Dallas, TX -- and the DB2-L list
I posted this at DB2-L and forgot to also post it here....

Yup, it's that time of year again. In just a few weeks, IDUG NA will
be starting at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas, TX. Hopefully, many of you
will be able to attend. At least I hope you can. It is always great
to see people I have seen in a long time and to put faces with with
e-mail addresses. Hopefully, those of you attending will be there
Sunday evening.

Last year we tried, and we didn't do too badly, at getting the DB2-L
listers together on Sunday night at the Welcome reception. So, this
year, once again, we are going to give it a shot again.
"The DB2-L Get Together Part II"

If you will be at IDUG on Sunday, May 18, here's what you want to do..

At registration, pick up your brown DB2-L ribbon and wear it. Even if
you don't make it in on Sunday, make sure you pick up your brown ribbon.

Sunday night, 7:30 PM, at the Welcome reception, track down the DB2-L
"meet and greet" table. Last year it was about the size of a postage
stamp. This year we will try to do better. Stop by, say Howdy,
introduce yourself to everyone, hang out for a few minutes, and enjoy
yourself. Find out who some of these people are you see posting to the
DB2-L list all of the time.

There will be signage leading the way.. and announcing the location at
the Welcome reception. Worse case, I'll wear something loud and
obnoxious to make it easy to find us.

Sunday, May 18, 7:30 PM, Welcome Reception, brown DB2-L ribbon, a big
smile, and be prepared to interact...

More to come as we get closer to IDUG....

I'm looking forward to seeing you May 18...
