Culminis and Microsoft will be contributing some goodies to be given away at the event.
 
Labs:
Mentored lab sessions will make use of the existing TechNet virtual labs (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/traincert/virtuallab/default.mspx) for some sessions and on-site labs for others.  Attendees will be able to choose the labs that they want to take. 
 
Staffing:
We are planning on staffing the events with the following personnel:

For the Group Policy and Scripting presentation by Michael Murphy of Microsoft's SST techNet team, in addition to his being a sponsor (TechNet).
 
Allen Stewart and Donnie Hamlett will do the Performance and Tuning presentation.
 
Allen Stewart will present Building a Virtual Test Lab using Virtual Server 2003.
 
The open Mentored Labs will be staffed by all the instructors plus volunteers.

Because of the limited facility we can only accept a limited number of attendees.   If this event is successful then we may decide to hold them on a quarterly basis and/or expand them to a multiple track format.  We may also solicit additional sponsors.
