Stuart Ainsworth is launching SQLSaturday #24 & #25, both in Gainesville, GA on October 9th and 10th respectively, and yes, one of them is on a Friday. Greg Larsen has just started SQLSaturday #26 in Redmond, WA on October 3rd. This is the second time out for both of them so we expect things to go well. Registration and call for speakers is open for all three events.
