October is typically void of hail storms and tornadoes and if it snows that early in the season it is usually only on the ground for a day.
Mountains are nearby for those seeking inspiration, wildlife, and other activities.
We have a lot of micro breweries And the GABF (Great American Beer Festival) is here in October as well.

For those of us that travel great distances [like Troy (Alaska) and the Vectric Staff (UK & Canada)] it is important to have two or more day of touristy things to do... Nashville, New Orleans, San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose, WN DC, Philadelphia, Boston, Seattle, etc.
Content... same stuff is great since the software is always evolving so the content also evolves
Partners presentations were a welcome addition but need to stay focused on how Aspire/V-Carve is used to complete their projects.
Most in attendance at the UGM already have machines and it is my opinion that they want to learn to how to make better use of what they already have.
As an example, John's rotary presentation [minus g-code] not only explained how to use rotary for turned objects but how to use rotary for flat multi-sided projects, something I never thought of before.
