    20:07:41 <AlanBell> [TOPIC] Review of action items from last meeting

    20:08:13 <AlanBell> [PROGRESS REPORT] People who have achieved something in September, please place it in the report.

    20:08:18 <AlanBell> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UKTeam/TeamReports/11/September

    20:08:38 <AlanBell> so we will have the happy hour to put in

    20:08:53 <AlanBell> and a podcast or two 20:08:59 * popey is adding

    20:09:08 <AlanBell> anything else of team significance?

    20:10:13 <AlanBell> ok, moving onwards

    20:10:14 <brobostigon> no. sorry.

    20:10:19 <AlanBell> [PROGRESS REPORT] popey to do a report on the amazing oggcamp event

    20:10:25 <AlanBell> was an action item from last meeting

    20:10:37 <popey> erk

    20:10:51 <AlanBell> why was that an action?

    20:10:51 <popey> postposne

    20:11:02 <popey> I'll blog it, I'm the last one of the presenters to do that I think Big Grin :)

    20:11:56 <AlanBell> ok, we linked to the lanyrd collection of posts, then popey piped up volunteering to write up a report on it Smile :)

    20:12:14 <popey> yeah, fool

    20:12:34 <popey> i think i was drunk in a field at the time

    20:12:41 <brobostigon> lol

    20:12:45 <brobostigon> Sad :(

    20:12:57 <AlanBell> fair enough

    20:13:03 <AlanBell> [PROGRESS REPORT] GreenDance to start a sub-project specifically look at how to improve Ubuntu's coverage in the education area.

    20:13:13 <AlanBell> well GreenDance isn't here right now

    20:13:33 <AlanBell> and I didn't see anything much on this, will postpone that one

    20:13:41 <AlanBell> [TOPIC] AlanBell - Release Parties

    20:13:47 <AlanBell> right Smile :)

    20:13:53 <AlanBell> so the release party is on

    20:14:12 <AlanBell> http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-uk/1283/detail/

    20:14:20 <AlanBell> it is at a pub in London called the Cask

    20:14:28 <AlanBell> I went there to check it out the other day, looks fine

    20:14:51 <AlanBell> the Kentish brewery "Dark Gold" on tap was quite nice

    20:15:02 <brobostigon> Smile :)

    20:15:33 <AlanBell> it is on one level, quite open plan with tables

    20:16:00 <AlanBell> I have been coordinating with Canonical, they were investigating booking the place out, but that would be ££££

    20:16:38 <AlanBell> so we are going to decorate it a bit, hand out freebies, and there might be a large order of nibbles sorted out

    20:17:26 <AlanBell> I think it will be very well attended by the Canonical staff as it is a pretty short walk to Millbank 20:17:32 * brobostigon looks if there is one near him.

    20:17:54 <AlanBell> we have another release party up in Leeds

    20:18:07 <AlanBell> http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-uk/1293/detail/

    20:18:20 <AlanBell> and a few attendees to that one as well

    20:19:03 <brobostigon> ok.

    20:19:06 <tonytiger> o/

    20:19:14 <AlanBell> this Thursday we also have the inaugural Happy Hour, which by strange coincidence is also in the Cask in London

    20:19:19 <brobostigon> i should have thought about oxford again.

    20:19:22 <AlanBell> http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-uk/1257/detail/

    20:19:57 <AlanBell> the Happy Hour series will then continue to Farnborough on the 20th October

    20:20:11 <AlanBell> http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-uk/1277/detail/

    20:20:13 <AlanBell> then probably up to Nottingham

    20:20:34 <brobostigon> Smile :)

    20:20:35 <AlanBell> then perhaps down to Southampton

    20:20:41 <AlanBell> or Oxford

    20:20:46 <AlanBell> who knows!

    20:21:08 <brobostigon> oxford Smile :)

    20:21:35 <AlanBell> whilst going through the events we have planned, the final one active on the LoCo directory page at the moment is Barcamp Blackpool

    20:21:38 <AlanBell> http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-uk/1286/detail/

    20:21:59 <AlanBell> which is just after the release and is kind of a release party for that region

    20:22:23 <AlanBell> any more eventy stuff to cover?

    20:22:38 <AlanBell> any questions about happy hours or release parties?

    20:22:58 <brobostigon> not that i dont think have been asked and or answered.

    20:23:34 <AlanBell> [TOPIC] Any Other Business
