The only problem I have with SQLSaturdays is that they are - obviously - on a Saturday :-D
The weekends are off limits as I reserve them fully for my family.
Here in Europe we don't have that many SQLSaturdays (one in Lissabon, one somewhere in Eastern Europe, sometimes one in the Netherlands and one in the Nordic countries), so I am not missing that much.
Luckily our own Belgian SQL Server event, the SQL Server Days, is always in the week so I have no trouble attending (and speaking) :-)
I don't know about that.
There are upcoming events in Oslo, Paris, Dublin, Athens, Holland, Porto Portugal, Barcelona, Parma, and London before the end of this year.
A lot of the SQL Saturday events internationally are hosted on days other than Saturday. During Summit last year they talked about the irony of SQLSaturday having been held every day of the week last year. There are also precons that are held at many of these events on the Friday before the SQLSaturday.
