One week until FUDCon! My, my, how the time flies. There are a few things
that need your attention before you fly off to the land of Dorothy, Toto,
Clark Kent, and Looper. (Leave your blunderbusses and kryptonite at home.)


The airport is about an hour from the hotel. There is Super Shuttle, but
it's $99. No, that's not a typo. If you would like a ride in our van very
kindly sponsored by Cloudstack, you should email me by the END OF THE DAY
FRIDAY with the time your flight lands.

We'll let you know before you leave where and how to find the vans.


Thursday evening at 8 p.m., there is a global Raspberry Pi meetup over
Google Hangout. MAKE is the host and guests are Matt Richardson and Shawn
Wallace, authors of Getting Started with Raspberry Pi. All meetup attendees
will receive a free PDF download of MAKE Magazine Volume 33. The guests
will talk about the projects featured in that issue and discuss everything
Pi. There's a live chat where you can ask them questions as well as share
your own projects.

We'd like to gather to join the Hangout and then hang out amongst ourselves
talking Pi. Please add your name here if you'd like to join us so that
we're sure to have enough room:


Friday night, we've got a space reserved at the hotel for pizza, a
build-your-own-cupcake bar, and drinks. You can sit around chatting with
friends, hacking on your hackables, or play awesome board games.

If you're the gaming sort, please add what games you're bringing to the
list here so we don't get there with six copies of Carcassone and a box of
Uno missing all the wild cards.


FUDpub is from 6:30-8:30, but if that's not enough party time for you,
there's a bowling alley next door. We're happy to reserve lanes, but we'd
like to know that you're interested. If you think you'd like to bowl a bit,
please add your name to that list:

Thanks, and have a beefy and/or spherical day!
