>> Organising a party is pretty simple:
>> Pick a date - I would recommend either Thu 30th October or the following
>> weekend…Sat 1st Nov and Sun 2nd Nov. Pick a date when you can arrange
>> for a bunch of Ubuntu enthusiasts to be in the same building.
>> Pick a venue - this can be someone’s back yard, a pub, a university
>> room, a school, a parking lot…wherever. They key thing is not the venue,
>> it is the people. With a venue and date, you are all set to let the
>> world know about it.
>> Add your party to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IntrepidReleaseParties - this
>> is the big list of Ubuntu release parties. :)
>> Let the world know - blog about it, make up some fliers and put them in
>> computers shops / libraries / cafes / educational establishments etc.
>> Encourage a stack of people to come along to your party. :)
>> We have a longer guide to organising a release party at
>> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BuildingCommunity/RunningReleaseParty. You can
>> also discuss organising your party on the ubuntu-event-planners mailing
>> list (https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/Ubuntu-event-planners).
>> When it comes to running your party, there are a bunch of things you can
>> do on the day/evening itself:
>>        * Have a cake - it is a birthday, after all! If you can’t bake a
>>          cake, find someone who can. :)
>>        * Hang out with other Ubuntu people, meet new faces and get to
>>          know each other.
>>        * You may want to perform installfests.
>>        * You may also want to organise a few talks and speeches for the
>>          event itself.
>>        * Why not make some merchandise to give out? Maybe some badges,
>>          stickers or t-shirts?
>> Enjoy, and do post here when you organise a party!

> Sorry to "spoil the party" as such but i vote for the Pembury Arms, last time there was a wicked atmosphere cake,food all the usual suspects for a party, but for me the thing that swings it, is plenty of space, ( and socket outlets ) for an installfest. So thats 2 votes for this venue, me + 1 other. cheers! Leroy.
