Apologies, I appear to have dropped the ball on this one as it's been
a week without any action. I think it would appear the June 23/24
might be a bit ambitious given the current timing. Is anyone else
thinking of holding an event other than the Brisbanites? As far as a
date for the event, would it be better to line up with school holidays
again or something else?

In Brisbane I was thinking we should alternate north and south side
like the release parties. If we line up with the release parties then
we should organise this on the north side. Is there anyone on the
northside familiar with the Chermside library
that would be willing to check it out and possibly book the meeting

Now as far as promotion goes we could try to repurpose some of the
materials at spreadubutu -
http://spreadubuntu.org/en/get-materials/recent - to make it a bit
