The Michigan Local Community Team will be participating in the Ubuntu 
Global Jam on October 3rd.

What is the Ubuntu Global Jam? Essentially it is a time when the various 
LoCo teams get together and jam out at what ever they have interest in. 
So some will be having Bug Jams, others Packaging Jams, or even 
Translation Jams. More info here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGlobalJam

What will the awesome Michigan LoCo be doing at OUR Jam? We'll that's up 
to you, really! So far we have interest in both a Bug Jam and a Packaging 
Jam. The Bug Jam will consist of an introduction to bug triage [0] and 
then plenty of times for Q&A/self-exploration/team learning.

The Packaging Jam crew will be available to help people get the hang of 
packaging Ubuntu .debs [1] and by the end of the day I'm sure there will 
be a few new, or updated, software packages.

And, of course, as it is a Jam, we're open to other ideas!

With all of this going on it is sure to be a great time!

==Here are the important details:==
* What: Michigan LoCo's Global Jam
* When: October 3rd from 12 (noon) to 6pm
* Where: SRT Solutions in Ann Arbor [2]
* Why: To rock out on Ubuntu before the release of Karmic Koala.
* Who: YOU! Your friends! Your neighbors! And all of the wonderful 
  members of the Michigan LoCo team.

As with any event like this, and especially if you don't live in Ann 
Arbor, I recommend carpooling. Feel free to use the mailing list to 
coordinate rides.

If you have any questions, email the list. If you have any great ideas of 
other things we can do, email the list. If you just want to introduce 
yourself before coming to the event, email the list!

Hope to see you all there!
