The big day is almost here, just three more days and then it is time for the Minnesota SQL Saturday #99 event at Grace church in Eden Prairie (maps and directions).  If you are currently signed up but are unable to attend, please go to the registration site to update your status.  There is a waiting list going right now and we are actively reviewing that throughout the week.

Now for some of the details:sql sat 99 logo
