GCNUG October Meeting - Tomorrow
October Meeting - 23 October 2008 6PM New Features in C# 3.0, PIZZA, AND FREE STUFF WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR?!? This month's meeting will start off with Pizza and then break into a presentation covering what's new in C# 3.0 by Chris Eargle.

GCNUG Meeting re-cap
A huge thanks to Benefit Focus for providing us with an awesome meeting facility and to TEKSystems for providing the food!
