Just a piece of paper you have to print out and bring with you. There will be a Racker here to sponsor the meeting and there will always be a room available. We have a ton of training rooms that are empty after normal business hours. I know people have had questions over "difficulties" getting in and that has been taken care of. It is a non-issue.

Yes, I agree that there was a vote a few weeks back, and it
showed popular support for Rack Space at almost 80%. I also
agree that the guarded parking is a non-issue and could perhaps
be seen as a good feature. Steve Kolars, our long-time supporter
at SAC has indicated that it might be proper for us to make the

have been 2-3 Rackers who are willing to act as our sponsor for
For the above reasons I am contacting the HR folks at RS to
see if we can get this ball rolling!
