December General Meeting

When: Tue December 13, 2022 06:30 PM to 08:00 PM

Location: Down to Earth Cafe

The December meeting will be Tuesday December 13, 6:30pm. Same location as last month:

Down to Earth Cafe
8204 Old Redwood Highway, Cotati
dtecafe.com

(Flagship and Spring Thai are still closed. Sigh.)

DTE closes at 8pm, and folks have been showing up a little early anyway, so I’m just going to set the start time at 6:30 instead of 7:00. If anyone really hates this, talk to me at the meeting :-)

As always, feel free to bring any sort of Linux gadgets, old-school mechanical gadgets, questions, anything you want to talk about, etc.

See you there,

We’re going to hold another regular meeting on Tuesday March 8 at 7:00pm, at Flagship Taproom / Spring Thai in Cotati. This will be a social meeting — there’s not really any way to do presentations outdoors. If you have any cool toys, projects, anything that doesn’t need a projector or too much table space, feel free to bring them. We’re hoping to be back indoors at some point, but in the meantime we’re trying to keep things going with these casual meetings.

For those who didn’t make the February meeting, Flagship and Spring Thai are sharing a big outdoor tent with lots of picnic tables, so you can order good Thai food and/or good beer.

General Meeting, Elections on Jitsi

When: Tue December 14, 2021 07:00 PM to 08:30 PM

Speaker: Everyone

Location: Sonic

Greetings,

We have still been unable to meet in person due to COVID-19 restrictions but I continue to hope all are well. I’d like to announce that we’ll be doing an online general meeting on Tuesday, December 14th at 7 PM PST at https://meet.jit.si/NBLUGGeneralMeetingDec2021 (to be confirmed) in order to attend to our board elections. I do not intend to continue as President to allow me to focus on TASBot charity work and I encourage others with leadership experience to consider self-nominating during the election process.

We have not had any speakers come forward since the COVID-19 restrictions started other than a passing offer from Kyle and we do not currently have any talks scheduled so for the moment this is a meeting to handle elections and discuss future meeting methods that may work. Our talk email list remains open for conversing, as does our #nblug channel on Libera IRC. Thanks,

A.C.
President, North Bay Linux Users’ Group
