#FlatSWUGN got his start thanks to John Matrishon back in August of 2016, and he was introduced to the "Twitterverse" by Brad Hakeman as he attended his first SOLIDWORKS User Group meeting in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
That Tweet and picture really made my day, but what happened next completely blew me away. He went to Nebraska.
Then to Missouri, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Panama City Beach, well, you get the idea. #FlatSWUGN was going to be traveling a lot. In all, #FlatSWUGN visited 17 SOLIDWORKS User Groups in 12 US States, and even spent some time in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia.
It was a lot of fun, and such an honor to watch the adventures of #FlatSWUGN over the year. The SOLIDWORKS user group leaders that participated could not have made me feel more special. Not only did #FlatSWUGN attend user group meetings, he got to visit a lot of very interesting places.
The icing on the cake happened at the SWUGN Summit meeting at SOLIDWORKS World 2017 when I was presented with this beautiful scrapbook full of #FlatSWUGN pictures, places, and people.
