Thanks to Errol for his thoughts on attending the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Airlift yesterday.
Since my "Reason of the Day #2" post, I have been bombarded about people that want to attend the Friday event, but are concerned about flight times and travel to the airport (with 300 attendees and only about 20 taxi's in town, it could be a concern). As I mentioned, the event ends at Noon on Friday, which means realistically that if you have a flight out on Friday it should be 2pm or later to make sure you have enough time to get checked in and clear security. If you have, say, a 1:19p United flight or a 1:30p Delta flight, you might be cutting it too close and you may miss your flight.
What we are going to do, though, to help you is we plan to have a couple of busses making a run from the Campus directly to the airport for those of you that want to attend. We'll send the busses as soon as they are full, but for sure, by 12:45p latest (most likely they'll be long-gone by 12:30p as people fill them while leaving). They will go directly from campus right to the airport. This will alleviate a huge concern about securing alternate travel arrangements that day.
Since you'll be on a bus, and will need to get off of it at the airport, get your luggage, and get in, I would suggest that the travel time total should be approx. 30-45 minutes (from Microsoft door to airport door with your bags in your hands). You're all techy people...that should help you "back into" your flight time.
If you do leave early, you'll need to make your own arrangements for travel. The busses will be making one trip only to the airport.
I would suggest that you review the sessions and build your schedule sooner than later. We have a lot of great sessions, and we can't wait to host you here in Fargo!
As you can see - and as I'll continue to let you know about - there are a lot of great reasons to attend this years Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Airlift.
