OKC ALT.NET Open Spaces Being Planned in OKC

I was talking to Ray Lewallen, a colleague and mentor, and he mentioned that he is planning an ALT.NET Open Spaces in our region. I was very excited to hear this, I have been reading about the ALT.NET Open Spaces Conference and become very jealous that I didn't get to go. Now we will have our chance.

Ray stated that he is targeting mid July but hasn't confirmed a venue. I will be keeping track of this and making any info available as I find out. I hope Ray doesn't mind me calling every day to find out if anything is set yet ;-).
