Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Conference 2011 - Closing session

It's hard to believe that this is the last day of the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Conference 2011, in the very hospitable Fargo, North Dakota. After a late night putting together the Day 2 post and the Microsoft Dynamics GP roadmap post, and having a bit of fun with partners and ISVs at the bar in the Ramada's lobby, it was now time to pack and get ready to go home.

At the Ramada's bar last night - David drinking 2011 vintage H2O on the rocks and me, well...
However, the closing session would have a couple of surprises, including, but not limited to, 2 fire alarms! The situation was quickly managed in an orderly fashion by the Fantastic 3 (the Conference organizing team). Hat tips go out to Babs, Lanelle, and Naomi for such an awesome, hiccup-free event.

Note: I still believe Babs pulled the fire alarm cord to get all the poor tired souls in attendance up on their feet again :-)

The triggerting of the fire alarms was possibly due to an issue with the local grid (earlier at the Ramada, lights flickered for a bit) which overloaded a few circuits on Campus. The local fire department quickly inspected the building and gave their clearance to return to the affected facilities, so we returned to the Dakota conference room where the closing session was going to be delivered.

With the closing session now running 1 hour behind schedule, I was only able to attend the Sponsors Shootout session - briefly anyways.

As with anything in life, the Conference must come to and end: it was time to say goodbye once more to my friends David and Leslie who will be leaving town in the next couple days.

David Musgrave, Leslie Vail, Beat Bucher, Mariano Gomez - Goodbye!
Just know that your Dynamic Duo will be back as presenters at Microsoft Dynamics Convergence Atlanta 2011, so register go and register now.

Until next post!
