The team meeting has been changed back to 2100 MST again due to the request of many team members and a vote taken in the meeting. Please join us - it's fun and it's your opportunity to voice your wants/needs/opinions about how this LoCo is run. It's also a fun way to get involved, to get acquainted, and to find out what is happening with this Ubuntu and this LoCo.
Welcome to the Ubuntu-Arizona LoCo Team Website. We are an "Approved" Ubuntu LoCo Team, and a volunteer organization within the State of Arizona who are committed to Ubuntu advocacy and education. Our goal is to increase the public awareness and use of Ubuntu and Open Source in our state. Working with the state LUG's to pool our resource and expand our out reach is essential to meeting our goals. We follow the Ubuntu Code of Conduct. **Membership: Join our Team!**
I was late in ordering our 10.04 CDs but they arrived today. If you want/need Ubuntu/Kubuntu/ and/or Server CDs please respond to this email with your Name and shipping address. It would also be nice if you could help with the cost of shipping as it will cost me to send them to you. In the PHX valley they will be available free at upcoming Installfest and PLUG east side meeting and east side Stammtische.
This past Saturday, July 10 we had a get-together at Nate Hutchings house. It was loosely organized at the last minute and it was a tasty good time. In attendance were flakeparadigm and a bud jawee, Hatthew Helmke, lenards, my friend mathewmpp and myself. Though it would have been very nice to see more of the team in attendance we weren't lacking anyhting. We had planty of good conversation and Nate cooked up tasty hot dogs, hamburgers, bratts and topped it off with a wonderfully smoky blueberry crumble desert.
I am finally scheduled to go in front of the ubuntu Membership Board on Tuesday 6th at 13:00 AZ time in #ubuntu-meeting. It would be great if you would show your support by attending this meeting and showing me your support. You can help my chances of being granted membership on the first try by editing my wiki and adding an endorsement for membership. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/j.scott.gwin This will also show you a little about the process of getting yourself ready to apply for Ubuntu membership yourself.
I just created a linked in page for the Arizona Ubuntu LoCo team: (http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=3014215&trk=myg_ugrp_ovr) in an attempt to make us more visible on the internet and, perhaps, make us easier to find for people needing/wanting our help. If you can think of other places where we can make our presence known, please let us know so we can make use of that info or create an entry for the team and give us the info so we can keep track of it.
