Ubuntu 11.10: Oneiric Ocelot Party in Kitchener!

[The Oneiric Ocelot] Ubuntu 11.10–the Oneiric Ocelot–is set to release this week. As usual, we’re hosting a release party at Kwartzlab to celebrate.

Join us Saturday, October 15th at 4pm (till late) and celebrate the latest and greatest release of Ubuntu! Release parties are a fantastic opportunity to meet other Ubuntu users face to face. And, hey, it’s a good excuse for a party.

We’ll have cake, devilled eggs, commemorative collector’s CDs and a fast repository proxy to help with upgrades!

For any other Canadian Ubuntu users reading this, if you’re not in Kitchener-Waterloo (or Toronto) and there’s no party in your area, you should host one! Join the Ubuntu Canada mailing list and let us know where and when your party is. Tell your friends and post on local message boards. We’ll help do what we can to announce it to the Canadian Ubuntu community.

If you are in KW and want to help publicize the event, please print out some posters and paste them up around town.

    I arrived in Kitchener about a month and a half ago, and I’m really interested in being a part of this release party. What’s the next step for me? (btw, I’ve been an Ubuntu user since the days of Feisty Fawn) :)

    Darcy: thanks a lot for the information, and my apologies for not being able to make it. I kept waiting for a reply in my inbox (in hindsight, I see how stupid that was, because I hadn’t really emailed you at all). I would still like to know the group and be a part of the next meeting or get-together. Let me know if there’s any mailing list or group I can subscribe to for future updates.

    I look forward to meeting you too! :)

    Sorry we missed you at the release party. I didn’t think to send you an email.

    Ubuntu Canada has a mailing list: https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-ca We also have an IRC channel: #ubuntu-ca on Freenode. I’m always idling in there, and I’m usually checking it during the day.

    Upcoming events are posted to the LoCo directory: http://loco.ubuntu.com/teams/ubuntu-ca

    There’s going to be an Ubuntu Hour (an informal meet-up) at Misty Mountain on Queen Street in Kitchener on Friday, November 4. I’m planning on being there.
