Hello All
My name is Bill Rieck and I would like to invite you to the first meeting of
the Kitchener-Waterloo Linux Users Group (KWLUG) on Oct. 13, 12-1 PM.
The biggest obstacle to the beginning of a LUG is having a meeting place
booked and some concrete times and dates. I have booked The Working Centre
(free), 43 Queen St. S., Kitchener, ON, for Saturday, Oct. 13, 12-1 PM and
can continue to have them there once a month until we agree on an
alternative. Judging from many other LUG meet times out there, they all meet
on a weekday once a month at 7 or 7:30 PM. The meet time may have to shift
to a weekday eventually, but for now it will be a Saturday, come on out so
you can have your input on this.
We need lots of ideas on how to make a kwlug work, all levels of experience
are welcome, and help of any kind is needed. It's up to you to come out and
help give direction to our group.
It is a great community meeting space that can accomodate up to 40 people.
We have a VCR, coffee, many computers for internet and Linux use, and a
volunteer-run (no charge) computer repair facility.
