I have made reservations for the Chicago Forum. In planning my route I find that there 2 Embassy Suites in downtown Chicago. I can't find an address where the forum is being held, so can some one provide me with an address instead of just downtown Chicago

Today was setting-up day! Everything is now ready for tomorrow morning's start of the 2018 Vectric UG! The venue is beautiful and enormous - two GIANT screens, plenty of tablespace, lots of smaller rooms with tables setup for samples, show-and-tell, vendor displays and more!

Another UGM has come and gone!
Once again proving that even an old dog CAN learn new tricks.
Thanks to everyone that out time and effort into a job well done.
Without Vectric and staff there would not be a meeting and without the attendees there would not be one either.
It's both that keep me coming back every time I can.

My thanks to everyone for adding meaning to a piece of my life,
Dale
