I wanted pass along a personal invitation, I hope that you will be able 
attend.   JT Smith, Director of Technology for WDI (A Division of
Brunswick),  will be reviewing Open Source Software and the impact it 
have in today's business.  There are so many different applications out
there that are Open Source (no cost) that can help all of us in today's
economy.  We figured the best way to accomplish this is to collaborate 
other businesses that are using open source or have the same general
interest in Open Source.  Meetings will be held Bi-Monthly with 
featured speakers.  More information can be found on the website: .  If you don't feel that this pertains to 
you I

Thank you for your time.  If you have any questions at all please feel
