We are happy to be having a Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat launch party in New York City. This event will be to celebrate the latest version of Ubuntu. Both experienced and newer users will be able to upgrade (if they haven't already), and share their experiences and tips. We are also hoping to draw people who haven't used Ubuntu before in order to teach them about this great operating system and give them a chance to see it in action.

This event will be taking place simultaneously with the Ubuntu 10.10 launch parties in Rochester, New York and Syracuse, New York.

This event takes place in a private facility so attendees MUST RSVP to attend. The main RSVP will be managed by the Facebook Event. If you cannot RSVP on Facebook for any reason, please send an email to jaricanese7@gmail.com with the subject "Launch Party". In the email please list your first and last name and of anyone that you will bring. RSVPs must be in by October 28, 2010 (2010-10-28). Thank you.
