  25 19:08 < nhaines> #topic Announcements
  26 19:09 < nhaines> SCALE is being held in Pasadena, CA from March 7th-10th!
  27 19:09 < nhaines> Which brings us to our agenda for tonight.
  28 19:09 < nhaines> #topic SCALE 17x planning
  29 19:09 < nhaines> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects/Scale17x
  30 19:10 < nhaines> We have a project page for SCALE and we need booth volunteers once again!
  31 19:10 < nhaines> Volunteers will receive a free full pass for the expo and also a really great Ubuntu California shirt designed by our own Charlie Luna.  :)
  32 19:11 < nhaines> As usual, this is a really friendly conference, and the expo floor is a great way to get some experience participating at a booth without a lot of pressure.
  33 19:12 < nhaines> In addition, we can probably squeeze in one more talk for UbuCon if anyone is still interested, but we need to hear from you in the next couple of days.
  34 19:22 < nhaines> Alrighty, well, I think that's about it for tonight.
  35 19:22 < nhaines> #topic Other business
  36 19:22 < nhaines> This year we're switching to a monthly meeting schedule.  This is the first one!
  37 19:23 < nhaines> So our next meeting will be on February 17th, and then we'll do SCALE and then meet again the week after.
  38 19:24 < nhaines> So enjoy the rest of your January, stay dry, and I'll see everyone in a month!  :)
