The release party is now confirmed for Sunday May 2, 2010 to be held at Bar Louie in Westminster, CO @ 5:30pm. Please RSVP this will help me make sure we have all the support we need.
We have the back room all to ourselves with a dedicated bar tender, pool table, and lounge area. I am also finalizing the possibility for an open pool table with them. Bar Louie should prove to be a great venue. They have 40 different beers on tap and a large selection of food and appetizers.
Not only will this event be to celebrate another great release of Ubuntu, but it will also be where I hand over the control of the group to David. After 2 yrs of serving the group with release parties and cd hand outs. Its time to let someone else take the rains.
Well its that time of the year again. Time to start planning for the upcoming Jaunty Jackalope Release Party.
I am looking to get a head count on the number of people wishing to attend and suggests for the Location and Date. Currently on the table is the Oriental Theater. However to do this I need to have 50+ people confirm that they will attend the event.
Features of the Oriental Theater are:
- 40-foot Projector
- Sandwich Shop
- Room for a lot
- Good Location
I am looking for a few people to also give a presentation at the release party. It doesn’t need to be release oriented, but at least be Ubuntu and/or Open Source related. I am going to put together a presentation on the new features and bug fixes for the new release as well to go along with any other presentations. If you wish to do a presentation please email me at (nerdynick) at (gmail) dot (com).
I am also looking for a designer to mock up a Release Party flyer. If you know of someone and are that someone please email me or the mailing list your design ideas.

Reservations are under “Nick” and will be in the Pilsner Room. If you where with us for the last release its that same Location and Room as last time.
We need to get a head count of all those wish to attend as well as if you would like to give a speech/Presentation. If you could fill out the following form this will help us out dearly.
This event has been postponed.
So this is a little late of an announcement for those that are on the mailing list but its official. We will be hosting a Ubucon this September at the New Google Office in Boulder. This event will be in the lines with our last Ubucon. Meaning that it will be an Unconference with a central topic on Ubuntu.
Now granted that the main topic will be Ubuntu. I would like to extend this conference to all things Open Source and the like. Meaning all you Open Source Evangelists, Linux Enthusiasts, Open Source Developers, and all others that wish to attend. Hopefully we can make this an annual thing.
