Every SQL Saturday leaves a mark of some sort.  This time around, the folks in Sacramento have really helped leave a BIG mark.
That’s right, this last weekend was SQL Saturday in Sacramento Ca.  You might have seen my announcement about it here.

This event had a lot of Unique flair to it.  Besides having Jason Horner (blog | twitter) in attendance, the committee thought it wise to provide all of us with these little trinkets.

That happens to be a branding iron.  I have inverted it in this picture for readability.  We received these speaker gifts at the speaker dinner the night before the event.  That is pretty normal.  What was different about this speaker dinner is that it was in a volunteers backyard and was a barbecue.  Yes!  There was fire!  Yes, we had implements of pain!  And yes, there were many jokes flung about during the evening.  If you were wondering, the first person to put his branding iron in the fire and to brand something was indeed Jason Horner.

Yes! This event left a BIG mark!

All the seriousness aside, there were some great presentations.  I was a bit disappointed to not be able to see the presentation about parameter sniffing by Benjamin Nevarez.  But I found my way into other presentations that made up for it.

If you haven’t already, congratulate the SQL SAC crew for their new youtube channel.  While you are at it, don’t forget to thank them for a great event.

For my first event traveling west, this was a memorable one.
