NH Drupal party

Bruce Dawson and Carole Soule have extra-generously offered to host not one but two BBQ/parties. Further, the NH Drupal Group have extended an invitation to GNHLUGers and other Unix and Free Software fans in the area to join them at their party.

Information on the Drupal event is available here:

Please RSVP there, and coordinate any shared food you might want to bring with the organizers. There was already a buy-in for some food, so we want to avoid duplication there.

GNHLUG party

Let's all get together and enjoy the company of friends and colleagues -- and some darn good food!

Anyone associated or connected with GNHLUG, or interested in Linux, Unix, Free/Open Source Software, or anything related, is welcome. Everyone is encouraged to take this chance to meet and mingle with other Linux enthusiasts. While primarily a social event, tech talk is inevitable at these things, and useful tips and even business opportunities often pop up.

Bruce Dawson and Carole Soule have generously offered to be our hosts, at Miles Smith Farm in Loudon, NH (just East of Concord). If you've never been there, it's a beautiful spot, with a rustic old farm house and barn, hilly fields, and an incredible view. The "farm" part isn't just a name -- it's an actual, working farm, with cows and horses, and farm products for sale. Don't let that scare you away, though -- Bruce is a certified geek, so electricity and WiFi Internet are readily available.

This will be a "pot-luck" BBQ. Show off your culinary or shopping skills, and please bring some kind of edible item for the party. Children are welcome! (But not as edible items.) Bring your own beer, or even bring some to share -- and given this crowd, I expect to see some decent brews. The farm will be supplying beef (hamburger and beef sausage), you supply the rest!

RSVP and Potluck

Please RSVP here (so we know how many to expect):

That also will let you register items for the potluck list. Please look it over to make sure we don't get too many of the same thing, then add your own. Note, there are more potluck slots than we likely need, for flexibility. And remember, the farm is supplying hamburgers and beef sausage, so we don't need more of those.

The registration site:

  • Requires JavaScript
  • Requires an email address (but promises not to publish or share it)
  • Will generate a guest-specific URL for you, once you've registered
  • Will email you a copy of your registration, with that URL
  • Lets you use the URL to edit your responses

If you object to the above, email Ben Scott at dragonhawk@gmail*REMOVE*.com with your registration information, and he'll add your info without your email address.

Thanks to Bill McGonigle for setting up the registration thingy.
