Might be good to set up a carpool from Davis/Sac. if many people are planning
to go again this year.

(note: I'm not involved in volunteering with Picn*x this year, and it looks
like no LUGs are 'officially' participating, so neither is LUGOD as an org.)

Subject: [svlug] Linuxpicnic coming up :)
To: Silicon Valley Linux Users <svlug@lists.svlug.org>

Hey everyone, the LinuxPicnic will be coming up this month. (Nitpickers
who insist that July's almost over and I'll need a time machine for that,
just send me a good URL for that time machine and I'll deeply consider getting one. You can help me out with the ebay bid. :> )

Date: 11 August 2007 (the Saturday after LinuxWorld Expo up in SF)

Where: Sunnyvale Baylands (same as last year)
Really Where: Heading N on Lawrence, just after you get past the highway entrance, the park's on the right.
Inside the gate, you'll want to turn to the right and follow things around to the "Indian Grass Circle"
side of the park. If you arrive late expect hectic parking.

What: Picnic! :D There will be grillables - if you're really picky,
bring your own, e.g. allergic to BBQ sauce, etc. If you're planning to share, keep your ingredient lists
handy so allergy type folks can RTFM to their pleasure.

Picnic toys. Big grassy area to run around in. Food. Decent water. Other drinkables.
Who: open sourcerors of all shape and variety. Mostly bilateral bipeds.
Mostly linux folk (but Haiku-OS and other projects are expecting to
show up too). You :)

Special notes: If you bring tarpstands, no sharp objects, no stakes.
The Baylands doesn't want metal left behind to bother
the grass after we're gone, and they have a policy
against injuring the local plants.
There's lots of seating and a few pavilions but it's never enough; if you *neeeeed* seating, bring a comfy folding chair - or 3.

Expected coolness: Internet (via some very strange forms of Wifi). Probably a mini installfest (hint: bring discs - the link almost certainly cannot handle 400 people sucking down Knoppix/Mepis/Fedora/Ubuntu/etc. all at once).
Expected not-so-coolness: sunburn. Much ouchy bad sunburn. Bring sunblock.

Repeat: if you don't have the ability to restore your skin from a morning backup - bring sunblock!

If you and lobsters share colors in common, bring Sunblock 2000 in designer shades. And wear your designer shades.

Some of you may recall that Duncan MacKinnon came and visited our meeting
a few months back. I've got a bunch of his raw notes and plans on making
things happen. If any among you want to help out with anything specific
(rather than merely show up when you want and help out if you like) I'll be at the meeting tomorrow, and you can catch me during the chat & snack time or afterwards at the 'job corner'. Or phone me.

See ya then, then!

The default Magic Word, "Abracadabra", actually is a corruption of the
Hebrew phrase "ha-Bracha dab'ra" which means "pronounce the blessing".
