Hello Pandas, Ninjas, Aliens and Designers

Next FUDcon NA will be held at Blacksburg Virginia, on January 13-15 next
year. The owner of this event, Ben Williams, has some awesome ideas and I
think we could give some great feedback. Lets take a look:

==== Friday Hackfest Sessions ====
- - - Ideas - - -
* Design tools
   * Gimp Hackfest:
   * Inkscape Hackfest: Do posters or marketing stuffs for a event (can be
help other FUDcons, FAD or local events)
   * Blender Hackfest: Maybe do a 3D map (since is easier) or a simple spot
* Particular Projects

==== Saturday Barcamp ====
- - - Ideas - - -
* Brainstorm of ideas for F17 Wallpaper (maybe just a quick talk with
everyone involved giving feedback)
* How to organize a design schedule for an event
* Complete list of Design Items needed for an event

==== Sunday F17 Hackfest. ====
- - - Ideas - - -
* Concept Development
* Sketches

Now comes the interesting part, Ben would like us to have a pre-schedule for
hackfest and barcamps, so he can send some flyers to local schools and
universities (maybe one call 2 months before, another one 1 months before,
and a third one a couple of weeks before) so people is fully aware of this
activities coming.

I add a couple of ideas, but I would like to have some feedback from all the
team... so go crazy and add whatever you would like to see in each of this
days and also ways to make people happier with the results. One of the
things I would like to ask you to keep in mind is that we need to focus more
on "train to recruit"; we know that as team, we need tons of help, but we
also need to think "where" do we need that help since the most common
question is "how can I help".

See ya!
