What Summer BBQ
Where Miles Smith Farm, Loudon, NH
Who You! Members! Everybody!
Date Sunday 6 July 2008
Time 4 PM to 7-ish PM

About the event

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

Anyone associated or connected with GNHLUG 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.

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.) BYOB. The menu will be coordinated at the web site (see section "Already signed up" below).

This BBQ will take the place of the CentraLUG meeting for July. (7 PM on a Monday night is kind of a weird time for a BBQ.)

Once again, Bruce Dawson and Carole Soule have generously offered to be our hosts, at Miles Smith Farm in Loudon, NH. 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.

Hope to see you all there!
