After talking to most of us about availability, it seems that some people would miss Oct 6th, and some people would miss Oct 15th, but I think just about everyone can make Sunday, October 16th. So we will make it the 16th! Let's set the time for for 2pm-6pm.
Open to all!
Barbecue and pot-luck: I will find out about getting a grill (I think there are some around InfoAge), and we have picnic tables, so let's do a barbecue and pot-luck. I'll take care of the barbecue meats. Pot-luck will be optional, but welcome. We'll need sides, sodas, snacks/chips, alternative dishes (like vegetarian), etc. I will set up a sign-up sheet that people can post what they intend to bring, so we don't have duplicates.
Fun stuff: Let's hear your suggestions. Here's a suggestion to get started: a contest for who has the geekiest "fashion accessory" i.e. jewelry made from up-cycled electronics, a particularly nerdy t-shirt (shirts signed by Woz and Crunch are excluded), Nike Air-Mag 2015's, etc...
Bring a project or item to show, or a project to work on, if you like.
We should extend invitations to other groups as well that we would like to build relationships with. For instance, maybe we can invite FUBAR labs to come down for a visit, we could send an open invite to other InfoAge groups, that kind of thing.
