    Lucid Lynx 10.04 Release Party

    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.

    Jaunty Jackalope Ubuntu Release Party

    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
    • Wi-Fi
    • 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.

    If you wish to attend please fill out the form at:
