Summary of the April 26, 2009 meeting

johnc4510 called the meeting to order at 9:01 PM

Agenda: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ArizonaTeam/Meetings/09April26

johnc4510 began the meeting by asking Jazzy_Jeff to introduce himself: "Hello, I am Jeff and I live in Phoenix. I have been using Ubuntu for 2 years now. I am 43." Team members welcomed Jazzy_Jeff to the team.

johnc4510 then gave some announcements:

johnc4510 then talked about the Release Parties. There were only 2 people at the Phoenix Party due to illness and people being out of town. Tucson wasn't much better. There were 3 and johnc4510. So, we need to reboot and find a better way. johnc4510 has also been looking at some of the other release parties. Most of the bigger ones offer a talk or two and demos, which might draw some of the other geeks maybe. Tucson definitely needs a better place too. We need to make a better effort. There was also had a guy from U of A at the party yesterday and he had some ideas for better student interaction, a place he thought would be in the main stream of traffic for the university.

tyche put together a new flyer that johnc4510 felt was more attractive. It's just a rough template right now, http://www.flickr.com/photos/22090195@N03/3441797261/ . The idea was that we could join with system 76 and they would print the flyers for free. If we can get it done we should go for that for the install fest. We need to find out how much lead time we need for them. tyche and johnc4510 will check into this and try to get something going. kennymc0 suggested that we should pick the place and date and all that stuff now so that we have enough time to get in touch with system 76 get the fliers and get them handed out or at least have a date and place by next meeting and find out what we need to from system 76. It was then decided that the Phoenix Install Fest would be:

Saturday, May 30, 2009 From 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM University of Advancing Technology 2625 W Baseline Rd, Tempe

We'll plan a Tucson event for a week or two after that. That would give more time to get the Tucson one planned since the Phoenix one in essence is most of the way planned already.

The meeting was adjourned at 9:37 PM.
