August Meeting Weds 28th – SFD Preparation

Mon, 26/08/2013 – 08:04 — julianr

Hi Everyone

Just a quick note to say our August meeting will be on Wednesday night, usual place the Courtyard in Hereford on the mezzanine floor.

The meeting will start at 7:30pm as usual.

Items for discussion amongst the usual chat,

* Software Freedom Day 21st September – Detailed Preparations – Still Lots to Do

* We need to get the posters finally designed, printed and put up – I can get them printed, but we will need volunteers to distribute and posted countywide and beyond, * Other PR – Social Media, Mentions in local press, radio, notes so far on PP etc. * Goodies – I believe we’re getting a full set of goodies from Linux Format magazine with some Raspberry Pi goodies, plus the usual bag of things- posters, banner, balloons, stickers etc to give away from the SFD organisers (Thanks Pete) * Finalisation of Talks/Demos/Presentations – Anyone else who wants to do a spot please let us know either here or on PP. * The venue is booked – and we have a couple of presentations confirmed or nearly confirmed.

The current plans/status are here on Pirate Pad –

Please take a look if you haven’t already to see how you can help. The more people who can help, either a lot or just a little now will make a big difference on the day ….

Likewise please come along on Wednesday ..

The Courtyard has free wifi and serves lovely coffees, and there is level access to all public areas of the building. You can find directions to The Courtyard, Edgar Street, Hereford, HR4 9JR here

The Courtyard has pay and display parking adjacent and free parking a short walk away.

It would be great to see any of the recent signups to the group, or anyone who hasn’t been for a while. The Courtyard makes a very nice venue too.

I’ll see you there at 7.30pm
