I don't want you to think we hate this idea -- because we don't.  I'm
thinking there's a little disconnect from the information already known in
the loco, and what you are proposing, so since you are kind of new to the
team, here's a crash course:

We hold face to face meetings. where we all go to a pizza place and have
lunch and discuss Linux stuff.

We also hold installfests where we help users install the latest Ubuntu
after each release.

More recently, we have begun holding what is called the Atlanta Linux Fest.
Our first one was last year.  This idea came out of a discussion about
holding an UbuCon.  It was determined that:

1)  We would cut off a major OSS community if it were Ubuntu-only.


2)  There's not enough Ubuntu users in Georgia to account for making a large
event (yet).

So, I'm not saying there can't be one in the future, it's just that we have
a different focus at the moment.  Our year has it's own schedule.  We try to
hold the Atlanta Linux Fest, two installfests, and several face to face
meetings throughout the year.  Adding another major event to the calendar
would be extremely difficult, especially for volunteers.
