June Meeting: 2017-06-08 @ 18:00

As was sent to the mailing list, we should have a meeting this month as it is BSDCan time. 

This meeting will be at The Red Lion, not at Café Colonnade.

BSDCan 2017 registration is at The Red Lion

After many years, the registration night (Thursday, June 8th starting @ 15:00) will be in a new location, The Red Lion. While Dan has mentioned it on various media, I think I should mention it here. Once again, it will NOT be at the Royal Oak this year.

HEADS UP: BSDCan 2017 registration at the pub is in a new location.

The Red Lion – 47 Clarence Street, Ottawa, Ontario

The Red Lion Public House

Meetings for 2015: January, April, July and October

Meetings for 2015 will be in January, April, July and October. If anyone has a great topic and wants to schedule a meeting in between, feel free to send an email to the mailing list and I’m sure we can make it happen.

This is in response to the dwindling number of people who have been attending meetings over the past year and rather than try to get people out every month, I’ll try for once a quarter. If this doesn’t help, I’ll combine the BSD group with another group and see if we get a little more activity that way. Comments are welcome.

In general, attendance has been down for a number of groups, not just locally, so rather than let it die on the vine, I’d rather spread it out a bit and see if we can keep some life here. Who knows, maybe we will have a revitalization in the future. Moving it may also help and I am considering that as well. Perhaps people don’t want to meet in a pizza restaurant? Perhaps something of a more hands-on approach will work. Again, comments welcome.

Watch this website…

While it may not be all that exciting, we are planning a BSD installfest sometime in the next month at the Jack Purcell Center. Should be an interesting evening, so watch for further details. I’ve been told it will be a Monday night.

Bring hardware to test, your favorite BSD version, something new or just come out to see what it is all about.

December meeting will not be hapening

Given the time of year and people with commitments, rather than add one extra item to the list, I’m cancelling the meeting. Given the turn out and the travel requirements for some of us, this should make it a little easier.

Season’s greetings, whatever season you celebrate!
