Eating my way through that savory security sandwich
Security Systems News publisher Tim Purpura and I pulled into the lot of the Fairfield Inn late last night after an hours long quest for an Applebees. (Note to those traveling I90: There is nothing for food but little pizza houses between West Springfield, Mass. and Albany, N.Y.) This morning dawned clear and cool & I feel ready to embrace the Rapid Response Users Group, meet some people and learn more. On tap for today? Here you go: 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.: Welcome breakfast 9:00 - 10 a.m.: Welcome by Jeffrey Atkins & overview of Rapid Response monitoring facility 10:15 - 12:45: Exhibit viewing, vendor demos and product training. (Group 1 tour of RR monitoring facility) 1:00 - 2:30 - Luncheon Presentation - Introducing the Rapid Response Monitoring Dealer Network 2:30 - 6:00 Exhibit viewing, vendor demos and product training (Group 2 tour of RR monitoring facility) 7:00 - 9:00 Opening Night Reception & Dinner featuring Stand-up comedian Nick DiPaolo I'm looking forwared to the exhibits and training, at which I hope to meet lots of people. I'm also looking forward to a tour of the facility. Depending on how the day goes, I might just heckle DiPaolo, too... we'll see. I can't help notice (I'm in the lobby of the Fairfield waiting for Tim to head over to the Turning Stone Resort, and the news is on) that the New York State Fair is going on right now, as well. They're focusing on all things dairy at the fair right now, with cheese auctions, milk tastings and other events where the bovine is divine. Looks like this year is eclipsing last year as far as attendance goes. I Love security as much as the next guy, but I may just sneak out of the security extravaganza of the RRUG and go bid on some cheese. I'll let you know how it goes. Check later for more.
