Our F I N A L Meeting

This is it — the final meeting of the Nashville Palm Users group. After 8 years, we’ve had over 80 monthly meetings and spent approximately 240 hours talking about Palm OS face-to- face; posted over 2,300 online discussions, served up terabytes of bandwidth and exchanged countless e-mails and it all comes to an end this Saturday.

But we’re going out with a bang!

This Saturday is a celebration, a celebration of our love of Palm OS and all the many years that we’ve shared maximizing our use of our beloved PDAs and Smartphones. We will take our usual look at the current state of the Palm OS landscape and a peek at what we think will be coming down the pike in the future, but for the first time, we’ll take look back.

Yes, it’s been 8 years since we started NPUG and along the way, we’ve collected a lot of photos, audio clips, presentations and even video clips. So we’ll take a few minutes to look back and talk about some of the highlights we’ve had along the way. We’re gonna party like it’s 1999 all over again.

And speaking of party, it wouldn’t be one if there weren’t presents! Our resident “Prize Pimp;, Randy Jones, has done an outstanding job of obtaining over $2000 worth of door prizes for the meeting. You may have heard me say this before, but it’s never been more true - if ever there way an NPUG meeting you didn’t want to miss, this is it. We have over 100 door prizes to give away, including a Treo 680, so rest assured, if you come to the meeting this Saturday, you’re going to go home with plenty of loot.

So why not join us in a fond farewell as we celebrate the past 8 years and passion that we’ve shared with Palm OS? You definitely won’t leave empty handed — even if it is sticky from all the Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
