Well, being in East London puts you in a good position to help with 
something that we really need help with, and that's with setting up the 
next release party. We've had a release party in Cape Town and Jo'burg 
with the 8.04 release. It would be awesome if we can bring that up to at 
least 3 cities with the next release.

A release party isn't difficult to organise. Even if you just have a 
get-together somewhere central for all the Ubuntu users in your area 
(even if it's just to get together and have some coffee), then it would 
already be good.

I'll start another thread on this a bit later, but I think now is a good 
time to start thinking about release parties.
