Hello everyone,

For various reasons, the LoCo Days event was unable to happen at its
originally scheduled date. We want to give it another try. The first
LoCo Days event will now take place the weekend of December 17-19. I
am including my original announcement email below. If your LoCo is
interested in getting involved, please contact a member of the
Classroom Management Team and we can add you to the schedule.


Original Announcement

Hello everyone,

It is my great honor to be able to announce a new Ubuntu Classroom
event that will be taking place: LoCo Days [1] ! To quote the wiki,
"Most Classroom sessions done in the Ubuntu community are done in
English. However, we have a large LoCo community as well. LoCo Days
were designed to encourage LoCo Teams to start doing more Classroom
sessions in their native languages." The first set of LoCo Days will
take place from Friday, November 5th, 2010 - Sunday, November 7th,
2010. Sessions, to be given in the LoCo's native language, will focus
will be on different LoCo-related HowTos. Some possible topics might
include: How to host an Ubuntu Hour, How to start a Loco team, or How
to organize a release party. Sessions will be lead by groups from
different LoCos; there will be very few (if any) individuals hosting

In order for this event to work, we need as many different LoCo teams
to volunteer to lead sessions as possible. Sessions can take place any
time during Friday, November 5th, 2010 - Sunday, November 7th, 2010,
so LoCo teams should have no issue finding a convenient time. If you
are interested in leading a session, please let either myself or
another member of the Classroom Management Team [2] know so that we
can add you to the schedule. Please be sure to pass this announcement
on to the other members of your LoCo team.
