Jeff has asked for volunteers, but I'm not sure that we have anyone else in that area. 21:07 < johnc4510> However, when we get the Ed Team pages ready, it should help with support by giving insight to the various pre-installed programs and also showing alternatives to them.

Deseert Ridge Shopping Mall. It has plenty of seating, is a nice place, has free wifi, and is right off the 101 freeway. Of course, if someone has a better idea, we are always open to suggestions. 21:12 < johnc4510> also food is available there 21:12 < tyche> Best of all, no reservations are necessary, and dress is casual. 21:13 *** johnc4510 do any of you phoenix people have any other ideas about a place or should we go with that one? 21:13 < tapH20guru> what time / date are we thinking? 21:14 < johnc4510> coming to that is a sec 21:14 < johnc4510> :) 21:14 < tapH20guru> k 21:14 < johnc4510> As for Tucson, I've sent an email to Bookman's requesting a booking of their conference room on East Speedway. I have not heard back from them yet, so I don't know for sure that it is free. Their web site shows conflicting data. If it is not open, I have a couple of other ideas. Again, if you have an idea, feel free to give it. 21:14 < johnc4510> These Gusty Release Parties will be on Thursday, October 18th. Times are not finalized yet, but should be around 7:00 PM local time. We will have more on that later. These events will be open to members, their significant others, and any friends or acquaintances who you think would be interested in learning about the latest version of Ubuntu. 21:15 < johnc4510> in other words, the more the merrier 21:16 < johnc4510> so, once we get these set, i encourage everyone to bring a friend and help us kick off the new version of Ubuntu 21:16 < johnc4510> :) 21:16 < johnc4510> advocacy is one of the basic things the loco' 21:16 < johnc4510> are set up for 21:16 < johnc4510> and 21:17 < johnc4510> this is a great chance to advocate for Ubuntu in AZ 21:17 *** johnc4510 does anyone else have anything else they wish to discuss? 21:18 < UncleSam> End of Meeting Have a great week!
