Hellooo Everybodeee! It's been a long time since my last message to the mailing lists and forums. In fact, the last time was to announce an Ubuntu Release Party, and now this message is to announce at least two Ubuntu Release Parties for the new release coming out on 23 April 2015, Ubuntu 15.04 codenamed Vivid Vervet.

What: Toronto 15.04 Release Party
When: 8:00pm to 11:45pm, Thursday, 23 April 2015
Where: Alio Lounge, 108 Dundas Street West, Toronto, Ontario
Map: http://osm.org/go/ZX6BtMGSN-?m=&node=1113718580
LoCo Event: http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-ca/3074/detail/

Mike Kaulbach (genii in IRC) is providing free coffee and all the fixings to decorate your own cupcakes.

What: Kitchener-Waterloo Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet Release Party
When: 6:00pm to 9:00pm, Saturday, 25 April 2015
Where: Egg Roll King Restaurant, 85 Courtland Ave. E, Kitchener, Ontario
Map: http://osm.org/go/ZXnwS2CL?m=&way=195517589
LoCo Event: http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-ca/3071/detail/

Sorry, no freebies in KW, but the Egg Rolls and Chicken Guy Ding are unbeatable!

Registration at the LoCo Event site for both events is appreciated, but feel free to just drop in.

If anyone is holding an Ubuntu Release Party in other locations, stick it on the LoCo Event page and let us all know. Holding an URP is easy: Pick a spot, make an announcement, and show up. Doesn't have to be in a restaurant or pub; could be at the picnic table in your local park, or in a corner of the library, or in a classroom after school.

For those of us near Kitchener, Charles McColm (@chaslinux on Twitter) is reviving the Kitchener Ubuntu Hours. There hasn't been one in quite a while, and Charles is looking for a location to host: http://charlesmccolm.com/content/ubuntuxubuntu-hourlinux-user-group-meetings

Can you believe it's already been two years since we renewed the Ubuntu-CA team's Local Community standing? Last time we created a ReApproval page to demonstrate to the LoCo Council that Ubuntu Canada was a vibrant user community: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CanadianTeam/ReApprovalApplication2012

This year, the process is called "ReVerification". I suggest that people who would like to participate in creating a new Ubuntu Canadian Team ReVerification Page start discussions on the Ubuntu Canada mailing list, but there's also an IRC channel for real-time discussions, and also the Ubuntu Forums:

Mailing List: https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-ca
IRC Channel: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=ubuntu-ca
Ubuntu Forum: http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=395

Hope to see you all at a Release Party! If not there, then online!
