Hello Fedorans, I am pleased to give a report on our F16 release party for
Silicon Valley. It was a success. There were 15+ folks in attendance. We
consider ourselves lucky to have been able to have the event at the Hacker
Dojo, as well as our sponsor Alison Chaiken
had a mix of folks that were already part of Fedora, to those that knew
very little about Linux.

We had a BBQ of hotdogs in honor of the Beefy Miracle. This IS California
though, so we DID have vegetarian dogs also. We had a talk on Fedora, it's
Foundations, why it is so important to FOSS, and a preview of F17. We also
had a very yummy cake (with penguins on it). In addition to the regular
swag of stickers, tattoos, and shirts- we had a few prizes. We had an
assortment of USB flash drives, and a grand prize of a Beefy Miracle shirt.
Our pics of the event can be seen here

This was our first official event for the newly formed Bay Area Mentoring
