The 2008 SBS Partner User Group Tour is well under way!

The 2008 SBS Partner/User Group Tour has begun!  Our event in Redmond kicked off this last Saturday and Atlanta’s was tonight, so for the rest of you within a few hours of the following cities, do yourself a favor and sign up to attend.  Here’s your chance to hear directly from the SBS Team about the final Released to Manufacturing version of Small Business Server 2008!  They will be giving away one “For Resale” copy of SBS 2008 at each event (release date for SBS 2008 is scheduled for November 12, so they’ll take the contact info of the winner and get it to you once it is ready).  I’ve included a second grid at the end of this post with the individuals who are leading each event so you can track them down if you need to.  Some cities are doing pre-tour events the same day (Charlotte and San Diego I know are for sure) so be on the lookout for those as well.
