Hello fellow LoCo members. I am an active participant of the Oklahoma LoCo.
I have been looking through the forums and mailing lists and noticed that
some neighboring LoCo's, like ours, are having some issues getting momentum.
I don't think this is the fault of the LoCo's it is just the number of
highly motivated Ubuntu users in our states is not as high as some of the
more densly populated states.

I am proposing that we work together to make our LoCo's an exciting,
challenging and rewarding experience. With a successful LoCo team we have
the potential to really help advocate and develop Ubuntu and get more people
using Linux and free software. Most of all we can have a lot of fun doing
it. Right now we are organizing members to participate in bug triage
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/HowToTriage as well as help out with
documentation https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DocumentationTeam. We are also excited
about the possobility of getting Ubuntu in our local library lending
programs https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuInLibraries. A lot of these projects,
like UbuntuInLibraries,t only needs to be done once. After all the letters
are typed and the materials made then we can just replicate it in our
individual communities.

I am sending this Email to the Kansas LoCo as well as the Arkansas LoCo. I
think some cooperation between the 3 of us could be exactly what we need to
get some projects going. I think we have a lot to gain by sharing resources.
I look forward to input from members from both LoCo's.
