LUG News

We generally meet monthly for technical presentations (2nd Thursday of the month, 6 pm, RCTC), and monthly for socializing (varies). We no longer meet monthly for lunches, if you are interested in reviving this tradition please contact an officer.

Did you used to be on our email list and suddenly haven't gotten email for months? We had a glitch and it caused many people to get unsubscribed; unfortunately Tina doesn't have a way of https://ycharts.com/indices/%5ESPXTR/ytd_returnknowing who all we lost. Please use "Linux mailing list" on the left to get yourself re-added, sorry!





Informal Social: Friday November 18th 2016

The Activities email list is coordinating a viewing of the Dr. Strange movie. Join that email list for the current plan for date/time/location for this movie viewing.


Technical Meeting / Social: Friday December 9th, 6:00 pm-midnight

In December we do something like board or card games, video games, etc because it's just too close to Thanksgiving and Christmas to fit in a social and a speaker.

Tollefoto is hosting a gaming night at his house. Email him or Tina if you need address and/or directions. Start time is 6:00 pm. Note that this is NOT our usual second Thursday, we pushed it back one night so people don't have to deal with getting to work in the morning.

Dinner will be pulled chicken, barbecue sauces, and buns, water, and lemonade.

We play whatever you bring. Please consider bringing board games to play, snacks and/or drinks. RSVP's of the types of stuff you're bringing would be appreciated so we don't have overstocks of some items (such as everyone bringing chips).
