Greetings, Fedora friends, near and far:

There's no place like FUDCon, and you don't want to miss this one! The 
2013 North American FUDCon will be held in Lawrence, Kansas, on the 
campus of the University of Kansas. If you are planning on attending, 
it's never too early to pre-register and start thinking about your 
travel plans, and it's never too soon for us to remind you doing these 
things! :)

FUDCon Lawrence will take place January 18-20, 2013.


A few travel-oriented notes:

HOTEL: Rooms at the FUDCon hotel can be booked now. We have a block of 
rooms at the Springhill Suites in Lawrence; please book your room by 
December 14 to take advantage of the rates, though sooner is always 
better. Hotel booking information is on the wiki:

AIRPORT TO LAWRENCE TRAVEL: If you need a ride to Lawrence from the 
Kansas City airport, once you know your flight itinerary, add it to our 
flights page:

Then click your heels three times and say, "There's no place like Spot's 
SuperVan!" ... seriously, though, we will have various people organizing 
rides to and from the airport.

We are now also officially accepting subsidy requests for travel to 
Lawrence. Funding requests are accepted between now (November 6) and 
November 13. If you are requesting a subsidy, we just have a few steps 
that we ask you to follow:

1: Register on the FUDCon Lawrence pre-registration app at:
2: Check the "Need funding?" box.
3: Create a funding request ticket in the FUDCon trac at:

General information about being sponsored can be found at:

Requests are processed in the order they are submitted, though generally 
prioritization is giving to local travel over international travel 
first. Requests will be reviewed by fellow Fedora community members at 
FUDCon subsidy request meetings over the next few weeks.

The first subsidy meeting will take place on Thursday, November 15. The 
time and IRC channel will be announced as we approach that day. If 
necessary, a second meeting will take place Friday, November 16.

As always, participation both in planning as well as subsidy granting is 
ALWAYS welcome.  Please join us on the fudcon-planning mailing list for 
information about planning meetings, as well as for general FUDCon updates.

Thanks, and I hope to see you in Kansas for FUDCon.
