Ubuntu Vancouver LoCo: Growing and Growing!

Wondering about Ubuntu in Vancouver? Think big meetings and lots of new members!

We're growing fast. In a few short months since our last update we've added dozens and dozens of members to our group, which is now likely the biggest in Canada.

Kootenay group created

Ubuntu enthusiasts in the beautiful Kootenay region of BC are proud to announce the formation of Ubuntu Kootenay. Our group offers help and support to Ubuntu users in the region. The towns of Nelson and Caselgar, Trail, and the greater Kootenay region are included in its coverage. Nelson and Caselgar are quickly becoming hot spots of Ubuntu activity with many recent installs. Ubuntu Kootenay is affiliated with the Ubuntu Vancouver team, adding strength in installation and support activities to Vancouver's marketing muscle.

Jaunty in Vancouver

The largest Jaunty Release party in Canada, the Vancouver party, was held
last night. It was a huge success! We're growing exponentially and have
more than quadrupled the size of the group in the past month. We've posted
our group picture on Flickr if you'd like to see some of those responsible
for spreading the word on the west coast.

Update on Vancouver group

I got an e-mail today giving an update on the activity of the members of Ubuntu Canada in the Vancouver area, and wanted to give everyone a heads-up. The Vancouver group is now holding regular monthly meetings that anyone is welcome to attend and doing various tutorials and installfests, and otherwise rocking!
