This month we have a super meeting so big, it has to be done on a Saturday. Teaming up with the Tampa Bay Creative Suite User Group, Tampa Adobe User Group, and the Tampa InDesign User Group there will be several presentations on the new features in the CS6 applications.

Aside from four hours of FREE demos, games and food, there will be many prizes including mouse pads, shirts, drink holders, buttons, stickers, books (some for CS6 that you can’t even buy yet along with plenty for those who still have yet to upgrade) and a copy of the Adobe Creative Suite CS6 Design and Web Premium. This is not a meeting to be missed. For all of members who have had trouble attending the Thursday night meetings. Here is your chance to win big!

    Darn! I won’t be there. I have a prior training commitment I can’t break. I can’t be in two places at once. Otherwise, this is not an event to miss.

    For anybody else sitting on the fence I’d say just go, you won’t regret it.
