User Group events....

Orlando SQL User Group
Tampa SQL User Group
Jacksonville SQL User Group

These are all really great user groups and we in the UK follow the free Saturday conference model with our own SQLBits brand - we completed our 2nd conference on Sat 1st March with 350 attendees.

They are also all FREE.
