I Call an Ubuntu Illinois LoCo Team Meeting

Howdy folks! So the Ubuntu-Chicago folks have been active for a while, and they’re a great team of folks. But what about the folks in central and southern Illinois? How sad.
So, it is my delight to call this first meeting of the Ubuntu Illinois LoCo team. On Saturday the 19th I invite folks to join me at my house in Champaign, IL–manchicken’s house of hack–for pizza, beer, and Ubuntu from 12:00 until 17:00.
During this meeting I would like to pass on information from the Ubuntu Developers’ Summit, and I would like to discuss how we could coordinate some local development efforts.
If you will be attending, please RSVP (ubuntu-illinois-rsvp *AT* notsosoft *DOT* net) so that I know how much pizza to pick up. If you have special dietary needs let me know and I can see if I can accommodate you within reason (sorry, but I can’t afford the caviar and champagne diet). As soon as you RSVP I will reply with the address and contact information.
This event is open to all Ubuntu users and developers. I’m a big Kubuntu guy, it’d be nice if a GNOME Ubuntu person and an Xubuntu person wanted to come and help lead some development discussions for this as well. If any other UDS attendees are interested in showing up let me know and I’d love to have you join me in presenting some of the ideas.
Anyway, my rambling aside, I hope to see you all at manchicken’s house of hack on Saturday the 19th of May at noon.
Also, if you join irc.ubuntu.com and join #ubuntu-illinois (which forwards to #ubuntu-chicago) we can discuss the possibility of a hackathon.  If you’d be interested in such a thing make sure you mention that in your RSVP.
