Over the past few months a group of folks from the Red Hat Westford office have worked on this proposal:
As in the Evansville proposal, the evening events here are rough cut, and could be explored more in-depth and solidified with confirmation of Flock's location. The location is less than a 2 hour drive from Red Hat's Westford office, where a good number of Fedora contributors are located, so we did a quick survey on the office list to see how that might impact attendance - preliminary results are in the bid towards the bottom, and as more responses trickle in I may update those numbers accordingly.
Please contact me with any questions at duffy at redhat dot com.
It is time to start the bid process for this year's Flock. This year we
are back in North America for Flock 2017.
If you'd like to help host the event in your city, it's time to start
putting together a bid. To find out what you need to do, read the wiki
Bids are due by February 28, 2017, so do not wait to start. It takes
more time than you may realize to compile all of the required
information for a good bid.
Along those lines, keep in mind that committing to help plan a
conference is a lot of work and shouldn't be approached lightly. It's a
big time commitment, and as the local contact, you're critical to the
success of the event.
Flock has been held successfully on college campuses and in hotels. We
need to make sure that the space will both work for the conference and
be affordable. Details are on the wiki page.
Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions or need help
getting your bid together.

The University of Southern Indiana is pleased to announce our bid to host Flock 2017 on our campus located in Evansville, Indiana, USA.
Some highlights of our proposal include event space provided at no cost, and very inexpensive housing in one of our residence halls located on campus.
Our proposal can be found at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Flock2017-Evansville-proposal
We may make minor changes to evening event ideas, and transportation options to/from the evening events, but otherwise the proposal is essentially complete.
