Euan Garden event – 12th July; attendees will have the chance of signing up for the SQL Server 2005 June CTP and the extensive Resource kit DVD which is packed with SQL Server 2005 information.

I’ts planned that Live Meeting will also be available for part of the 29th and for all of the 12th July for those who cannot attend in person – more details will be on the site this Monday. The user group evening events are extremely popular and well attended.

The meetings are free, you don’t need to be a member but it would be nice if you where so i can gauge numbers for the day.
