    North Bay would be a great place for me but Sudbury is likely good as well. I would have to travel 8 hrs south to either place.

    One thing to keep in mind is that if you live in a community with at least 10,000 people, there are over 50 Ubuntu users near you, in your town, maybe some of them even in your neighbourhood. Taking a look at population statistics:

    Sudbury. 150,000+. Over 700 Ubuntu users.
    North Bay. 50,000+. Over 200 Ubuntu users.
    SSM. 70,000+. Over 300 Ubuntu users.
    Timmins. 40,000+. Over 200 Ubuntu users.
    Thunder Bay. 100,000+. Over 500 Ubuntu users.

    The most useful thing that you can do make Ubuntu stronger, bigger, and faster is to find the people in your town and get them together in your town. No need for long road trips or excessive cross-city coordination. In the words of Jorge Castro: "Just do it!"

    Yes! Other than Thunder Bay (because it takes 2 days to get there) I'd be willing to travel to all other cities. Sudbury, however, has the biggest population, so it makes sense to start from here and move outward, sort of like an "each one, teach one" philosophy.

    I think It really depends on the drive of a person to start a LoCo group in ones city. I my self live in Petawawa and this area I know for sure has at least 12 people off hand who use Ubuntu (because I installed it).

    You should come! I'm writing this from the Waterloo Ubuntu Hour now!

    At the very least, come to the release party in April. They're pretty awesome (if I say so myself...)

    There was a guy who was talking about starting a Brantford Ubuntu Hour. So there may be something in the future. But more importantly, if *you* wanted to start something, I know there are people around who would be interested in joining.
