<toddc> We will be moving several events around as part of changes in the server and regular installfest
<toddc> and we will announce more after we check the schedule at UAT for rooms
<toddc> Dazed_75 would like to add more info at this time?
<toddc> We will also be trying to stream all events on http://azlocobbb.banditti.com/  but until we get organized
<toddc> I will start as soon as possible after events start but due to setup time I hope to find others to run it  as we get bigger. This will let other's participate and be more active state/world wide but will take time to develop and and get the word out.
<toddc>  Yesterday's installfest went very well. It was not a large turn out but we have a great time and kept busy with several projects and had a very good time talking and testing and several new people showed up for help and to help it was nice to see every one
