It was a day of first

It was a day of first on Saturday.  It was the first time I presented at a SQL Saturday ( ) and it was the first time the Pittsburgh User Group ( ) organized a SQL Saturday ( ).  It was an amazing event for their fist time and I took many notes for things that we need to do when the Ohio North User Group ( ) does a SQL Saturday again.

I wanted to stop and take some time to thank everyone that was involved in making this such a success.  It is due to each and everyone that this was a success.
