The PASS Summit has been held in Seattle for the past 5 years, so if you're a previous attendee you may know that city like the back of your hand. We realize that this will be the first time in Charlotte for many of you, however, so we are doing what we can to help you get acclimated to your new surroundings as quickly and painlessly as possible. The SQL Sentry Shuttle is a big part of this, and the Summit Map & Area Guide is another.
The guide was produced from the deep local knowledge of our adventurous team, and support from the great folks at PASS and the CRVA. (I wish I'd had something like this my first few Summits in Seattle, it could have saved a lot of aimless wandering ;-) It covers pubs, museums, and everything in between... not just in uptown Charlotte, but in all destination areas served by the shuttle.
You can grab the PDF using the link above or images below, and there will also be a hard copy in your attendee bag. When you open it, you'll see a large map of uptown Charlotte in the center, with insets for the major destination areas on the left and right:
There are numbered POI markers color-coded by type on the maps, and an index on the back:
We've also included the shuttle stops, the start/finish point for #SQLRun on Weds, the #SQLKaraoke location on Tues, uptown parks, major venues, and Lynx light rail stops.
I'm hopeful that at the 2013 Summit, any aimless wandering will be kept to a minimum. Enjoy!
