According to some of the attendees, the food was pretty good, the meat was cooked just right and the Kangoroo was excellent. The service very professional. The small gathering allowed them to get to know each other better. They received the traditional VIP T-shirts along other tokens of appreciation. Here is some of the dishes that the party enjoyed:
All these events and gathering with our Cisco Designated VIPs are fun and most importantly provide an opportunity to share experiences, feedback and ideas. Once again we at Cisco continue to be impressed seeing their contagious enthusiasm and loyalty to Cisco products, solutions and services. Their contributions to the Cisco Support Community are invaluable and we all know that we would not have been where we are today if we didn't have our customers' and partners' dedication and avid participation in the discussion forums.
After the delicious dinner, the traditional raffle was conducted and the lucky winner was Marvin Rhoads. The grand price was a FitBit Blaze watch. Congrats Marvin, now you can count your steps!
