Day 7 - Palmerston North

Farming wind at Te ApitiJeremy and Chris are both really looking forward to Wellington tomorrow - it is our home town, and we are expecting the biggest (and best?) audience at a very cool venue - the Paramount Picture Theatre.

Today however, we are in Palmerston North.  After breakfast, we headed back down through Dannevirke where we switched drivers (Chris had some phone calls JB and a turbineto make) and got some fuel.  Then we headed toward Palmerston North, opting to take the Saddle Road so we could visit the wind farm on the way through.  The wind farm is pretty cool - the turbines are huge and there is literally no noise that we noticed.

We got some cool photos there including the one of JB on the left.

Palmerston North turned out a fantastic audience - we had more than 50 people come along which is pretty good considering the user group there is only just getting off the ground.  Hopefully I'll see many of these people along on the 4th of March when I'm back for the inaugural Palmerston North .Net User Group meeting (where I'll be presenting).

Tonight Katie (the UG leader in Palmy) is taking us to a Korean restaurant which will be fun, particularly as Chris isn't keen on Korean due to a bad experience once before... Palmerston North's audience

If you are keen to come to Wellington tomorrow, you still have time to register and invite a friend (although you'll want to make sure they turn up too). 

Tomorrow, we'll have something special for Wellington techies who want to be involved in our launch a little more too...

UPDATE: Check out JB's Post - we had a groupie following us around!
