MDSM Membership Drive – The Big Prize

We had our second meeting of the 2010 MDSM Membership Drive this past Thursday and we made a “big” announcement.  We’ve alluded to the “big” prize that we would give away at our December 9 meeting if we get at least 25 people in attendance.  Mike Eaton and I originally thought that keeping things a bit suspenseful would be a good idea, but last week we changed our minds.  Our hope is that if everyone knew what we were giving away, they’d tell all their friends and colleagues and get them to the meetings!

So what is the “big” prize?  Well, “big”, “Big”, and even “BIG” don’t really cover it.  This is “BIG”!

If we get 25 people at the December 9 meeting, we will give away a 1-year MSDN Ultimate Subscription, which retails for $11,899 (source:, 8/28/2010).

The best part is you don’t have to have just one chance to win.  There are a number of ways you can earn chances in the drawing.  But, of course, you do have to be present on December 9 to win.

So please, tell your friends, send an email blast around to the other dev-heads at your company or in your professional network.  Our next meeting is Thursday, September 23 where Jay Harris will be speaking on MVC.  Please RSVP to if you are interested in attending, and let us know if you will need a parking pass for the ramps behind the College.

Hope to see you then!
