Hellooo Everybodeee! Just a quick note to let you know about all the things not happening in the Ubuntu-ca communities.

There's no IRC/Video Chat meeting scheduled. The last few meetings have been sparsely attended, and have been mostly me talking to myself. There's not a great deal of global activity until a few weeks before the next release (23 October 2014), but if anyone wants to have an IRC meeting (or a VideoChat meeting (or both)) sooner then let me know and I'll put something on the LoCo Portal. Or even better, head over to the LoCo Portal yourself and create a new event! http://loco.ubuntu.com/teams/ubuntu-ca/

There's also no Ubuntu Hour scheduled in Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph or Toronto. Or Perth, Peterborough, Winnipeg, Moncton or anywhere in Alberta. I could schedule something in K or W, but that's probably not going to happen until July. In the meantime I'm happy to go to any Ubuntu Hours put on by anyone else within an hour's drive from here. Sorry, Alberta.

All it takes to run an Ubuntu Hour is to create an event on the LoCo Portal and let the mailing list know, then go to your favorite coffee shop or restaurant and hang out for an hour. People show up, and that's your Ubuntu Hour. There are some handy Ubuntu logo tabletop standups so people can find your table without asking awkward questions: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CanadianTeam/standups

One event that isn't not happening is the LOLUG June 2014 Meetup in London, Ontario. Thanx to Jean-Paul Sauve (Seven_Six_Two in IRC) for arranging that.

What: LOLUG June 2014 Meetup
When: Sat, 21 June 2014 13:00 - 14:00 EDT
Where: London Public Library, Central Branch
Address: 251 Dundas St., London, Ontario (Map1 (http://osm.org/go/ZXkOhoP0--?m=))
LoCoPortal: http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-ca/2832/detail/

I think registration is optional, but it can't hurt.

Finally, the Mississauga LUG also has regular meetups. Formerly known as the Mississauga Ubuntu Meet Up (or MUMU for short), you can find them at Shoeless Joe's (Map2 (http://osm.org/go/ZXt1xHfE-?m=)) on the third Tuesday every month. More info at http://mississaugalug.ca/

That's it for now. See you at an Ubuntu Hour. Right?
