    Dear GPUG Indianapolis Chapter members,

    Well, maybe not Grand, but extensive nonetheless! My visit to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for your Q2 Chapter meeting will be the first leg. After your meeting adjourns, I might be able to stay for a little while to enjoy practice day.

    Then it's off to West Des Moines, Iowa, for the Q2 Chapter meeting there. Finally, back to Green Bay, WI! That's over 1400 miles in 53 hours.


    I've been to Indianapolis, but never to the Speedway. Looking forward to it!

    And, oh yeah, isn't @Mark Polino coming to this shindig? I'm going to get him to autograph two of his books I bought: "Building Dashboards with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and Excel 2013" and the "Security and Audit Field Manual".

    Sincerely,​

    Hi Steve,
    We can't wait to have you join us!! And yes, you are correct, the great and mighty Mark Polino is joining us for this meeting!! I'm so excited. I really hope you get to enjoy practice for a bit. There's nothing quite like watching the cars go around the track at 225+mph.

    @Sherri Lester,

    >> ...the great and mighty Mark Polino <<

    That​ conjures up images from "The Wizard of Oz":


    ...and I hear Wizard Mark sneeringly say, "You clinking, clattering collection of caliginous junk!" The stuff nightmares are made of!

    Regards,

    @Steve Erbach,
    If you borrow one of the Indy Cars, your tour travel time would be cut down to about 6.5 hours.​

    @Jasper Rozinski,

    Not necessary! According to Google Maps I can make it to the Speedway from Green Bay in 6 hours and 24 minutes in my Honda!​
