For 2012, the SharePoint Saturday Los Angeles (SPSLA) committee incorporated the Grand Prix racing theme. The Grand Prix occurred the same weekend as SPSLA and a few lucky winners got tickets for the race on Sunday!
In fact, there were several really great prizes given away, including:
- Training classes from New Horizons and TekDog, Inc.
- SharePoint Books from O’Reilly, Axceler, and Microsoft’s User Community.
- Cool gadgets like a Kindle Fire and a personal Scanner.
- Gift cards to Amazon.com
One lucky winner even got a Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) Singing Toothbrush!

She was also one of the top mentions, beat out only by Christian Buckley (@buckleyplanet), who gave out and autographed a few copies of his new book for attendees: Microsoft SharePoint 2010: Creating and Implementing Real-World Projects.
Ooh, and I made the list
The last twitter statistic I want to share is this one, which says it all – zero negativity. Also, our tweets are boring (just kidding folks – I have a small “tone dictionary.”)
Special thanks to my friend and co-chair Nedra Allmond (@nedraallmond) who I think was up 2 days straight finalizing things – get some rest!
