First meetup i'm setting a little informal so we can get to know each other and find out what we want to get out of the group. What better way to do this than over some beers!
No need to bring laptops or any techs. Lets chat about out everyone's skills, backgrounds, what we would like to get out of SharePoint, best times/days to meet, etc....
If you can't make it. That's cool.
I'm shooting for the formal meetup in mid Nov before the holidays.
