    NewTek Users Party for NAB 2011 Revived!!!

    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/showt...er-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!

    Ron & Eric, this is GREAT news!
    Due to my Mom's Hospice situation I've not been able to comit to NAB for the first time in over 15 years.

    Those were some great parties that allowed hundreds of NewTek product users and forum friends to meet face to face and develop long term friendships.
    They were also a great opportunity for 3rd party developers to get face time with potential users.

    Thanks to Eric Pratt for getting the ball rolling and to Ron for AGAIN picking up the pieces as the local contact in Vegas.
    If things work out I hope to see you all again this year.
    If not, have a GREAT time and best of luck getting donations. I know that was the toughest part of throwing these parties.

    From past experience, I know how you are putting your arse on the line by planning the party.

    To EVERYONE, even if you can't make the party, PLEASE throw Eric a $20 to help. Getting everyone together is good for all of us, even if we don't attend.

    I still have a list of those who donated when I was doing these and still appreciate their contributions. Especially those who couldn't attend and sent money anyway. They understood how getting this community together benefitted everyone.

    Best of luck to you Eric!

    NewTek users reception

    Really wanted to check out the NewTek users party, and was planning to attend, then JVC announced there dealer meeting and reception that same evening. I would still like to see if I can make it, or meet others at the NewTek booth. Wow just realized this will be my twenty first NAB convention and I am only 40, now I am feeling old......

    Thanks,

    NewTek Users Meetup Door Prize Update

    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???

    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:

    Chip Cogswell: $20

    I'm sure it will Rock!

    Wish I could be there. All my best to everyone.
    And, oh, please watch my new video. You'll like it.
    I "photoshopped" all the backgrounds, just using SpeedEDIT.
