:) Hi All, Great News!!!

Eric Pratt and I are reviving the NewTek Users Party for NAB 2011! Eric is replacing Ted Ruiz Sr. as Host and I will again be dealing with getting some great door prizes for those of you who can make it.

Adjust your calendar for Monday Night, April 11th 2011, 6pm-9pm

Check out all the particulars here: http://www.chromakey-forum.com/showthread.php?50-NewTek-User-Meetup-2011

If anyone would care to donate a little bit of cash to help Eric pay for the ballroom and refreshments, he has set up a couple links on his web page for that.

If anyone would like to donate any products (hardware, software, books, etc.) as door prizes, please contact me at:

[email protected] --or-- [email protected]

Any third-party developer may bring your wares to demo at the party. Please contact me to ensure we have enough tables set up for your use. At this point in time, I will only have my personal laptop there loaded up with SpeedEDIT 2 and Mirage Studio 1.5. For third-party developers who cannot bring their own equipment/hardware/software/flyers/brochures/etc., just send it ahead of time to me and I will display it as much as possible. Contact me for your particular circumstances.

Hope to see a lot of old friends there and am looking forward to meeting a bunch of new ones!

Cheers! :newtek: :tcicon: :vticon: :lwicon: :D

:devil: Hey, Gals & Guys! Even though I am a Retired U.S. Air Force Security Police Captain, I've changed my ways a little and have rationalized that, for this event, I am willing to accept a bribe. To be ensured to win a door prize all you have to do is ship me a new or very slightly used TriCaster TCXD850; I will ensure that you get no less than one of the Footage Firm DVDs (I'll have to send it to you as the 21 listed as door prizes will have to be given away at the party. I would just have to buy one [the DVDs are free but are a whooping $8.41 each for the shipping & handling] and send it to you!!! Does that sound fair??? :thumbsup:

:help: Seriously though, we do need more cash donations to help Eric pay the party expenses. And we could use some more door prizes; the prizes don't have to be new, just something you're not using any more but still has life in it for someone else in the NewTek Community. Hardware, software, books, training videos, etc., as long as the winner, if necessary, will be able transfer registration to themself!

Here is the current list of cash and door prize donations:
