The following is the email thread that we had going around about the BBQ. I figured since not everyone is subscribed to the mailing list (which you can subscribe to at https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/Ubuntu-us-co) it would be a good idea to mention it on the forums. I hope that nobody minds that I posted this here, not trying to steal Jim's idea or anything, and I did cut out last names and email address for those who are paranoid and wish to remain anonymous. Feel free to chime in if you're interested in joining the festivities!
Well, I've been trying to get a nice little coloco BBQ going all summer and now that's it's more than half gone we need to make this happen. I'm dubbing it the first annual coloco ubu-q. I need suggestions on a place and time. I kind of like Boulder 'cause Boulder is cool and somewhat central. I'd offer my local park here in FC but it's a bit of a drive for a lot of people. It needs to be soon though. August 11 would be perfect. Earlier is okay but later is not great for me.
Hopefully on a weekend, we all workNeal
Thanks - sounds great.
Saturday the 11th sounds best to me, as does Boulder.
I don't know offhand about a good specific location.Jim
Neal, what about the park on 30th street around Arapahoe or something, can't remember. I think there is also a park on or about north broadway that could be nice. I don't remember Boulder so well.
Assuming I can read a calendar, August 11 is a Saturday so all you working stiffs will be able to come.
Please share more ideas if you have them.Charles
What about the working stiffs that work on Saturday? ;^)Mitch S
Or the working stiffs like myself who work 7pm to 7.30am Wed, Thur, Fri and every other saturday...... looking at the calender..... that is the week that I work saturday..... and I will need my beauty sleep that day......Jim
Well, it's impossible to meet everyone's needs. However, I'm open to suggestions. If we have a couple dates we can all vote on what works best. I only offered the 11th because it's close but not too close and last time we tried nothing happened. Much later will edge into the new school year and students and those of us with kids will find it somewhat more difficult.Mitch S
That it is.... Mine start school the 20th.... when I get off work the morning of the 12th....we will be heading up to our cabin for the week.....As far as dates go... any date that works for the majority...go for it. I am the oddball with the hours. Most dates that work for me don't work for most other people. Unless we could get everyone to have a monday or tuesday off workDaniel
Sounds like a great idea... how about August 12? I have a friend
coming to visit from back east and he will be leaving on the 11th...
so I will be limited as to what I can do on that day.
