=== Summary of the September 23, 2007 meeting ===

At 9:03 PM UncleSam welcomed us to the Ubuntu Arizona LoCo Team Meeting.

No new members were present to be introduced.

The discussion for the evening would be about the Gutsy Gibbon Release
Party.  Gutsy Gibbon will be released October 18, 2007.  This is the new
Ubuntu 7.10 release that various members have been playing with.  John
felt that this meeting should be about whether or not the team wanted to
have a party, and to determine location and time.

Due to constraints of work and school, and the fact that October 18 is a
Thursday, it had previously been suggested that the party be held in the
evening.  Also, because of the far-flung nature of the LoCo, a previous
suggestion has been to hold one party in Tucson and one in Phoenix.

Another consideration was whether or not there would be wifi at whatever
place was chosen for the party.  If not, would members be willing and
able to burn sufficient disks of the new distribution to hand out to
other members.

And, of course, there can't be a party without food.  What places could
be chosen that would also have wifi or, to reverse it what places that
had wifi would allow us to bring in food.  John mentioned that Bookman's
allows people to bring in food.  Also, many coffee shops might allow it
if asked ahead of time.

One important need in putting together a party is people to organize
it.  This would primarily be people to reserve a chosen location for the
party.  John felt that most of the rest of the organization he, himself,
could take care of.  John will handle the organization of the Tucson
party along with the other general organizing, but we need someone to
organize and set up a place for the Phoenix party.  No volunteers were
forthcoming at this time.

Since there was very little input from the present members, John felt
that it would be best to continue the discussion next week (Sunday,
September 30, 2007) when members have had more time to think about the
questions raised and able to give some input.

The meeting was adjourned at 9:18 PM
