    Dear Indianapolis GPUGgers,

    I tend to relate my experiences at GPUG meetings via Twitter; so I'm going to copy my recent tweets about your excellent May 14th meeting here:

    • May 13th 11:30 pm:
      Made it to the Waterfront Hotel in Indianapolis on the first leg of my #GPUG 
      "Grand Tour". Taking in the Chapter meeting at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway tomorrow morning at 8:00. Presenting the Member Showcase for my IN brethren and sistern... er... um... I mean "sisters!"
    • May 14th: 

      Kymberly Shoulders (Solutions Engineer for ImageTag) presenting at the ⁦GPUG Indianapolis Chapter at the Speedway. The Indy cars practicing provide an almost constant hum/buzz/growl.

    • 31 in attendance for the GPUG Indianapolis Chapter meeting today. Kymberly Shoulders of ImageTag presenting KwikTag. Kymberly's been working with GP for a couple o' decades, and quite a few companies represented at the meeting were her customers.

    • Mark Polino presenting on GP security at the GPUG Indianapolis Chapter meeting. I said that he had an addiction to Mountain Dew. He quipped, "It isn't an addiction if you don't want to quit, is it?"

    • Mark Polino explaining what various types of fraud are and what he's seen in his career. "Please do NOT treat this presentation as a fraud How-To!"

    • And a selfie of me, @Mark Polino, and the Indianapolis GPUG Chapter members.

    ​What one comes to Indy for! Watching practice runs on TV while the cars are going around the track right behind you!

    Well, I DID get a bit of the practice lap action at the ⁦Indianapolis Motor Speedway. These guys are traveling at 225 mph! It takes them just 40 SECONDS to round the 2.5 mile track. This link is to the 8 second video I posted on Twitter (

    My thanks to @Denise Drury, @Sherri Lester, @Jasper Rozinski, and everyone else in Indianapolis. There were actually people from several states at the meeting, not just me.

    And the lunch was excellent! Much appreciated!

    ​Thanks Steve for the tweeter 'run down' of the meeting!  It was so great to have you, and others from out of state, as well as our tried and true Hoosiers in the room.  Thank you for the Member Showcase and the number of chuckles we had with your stories.

    Thank you to everyone for making our May member meetings such a success!
