Hi Everybodeee!  Just a reminder that Verdi R-D (azend in IRC) is
hosting an Ubuntu Hour on Thursday:

*Event*: Ubuntu Hour Guelph

*Organizer*: Verdi R-D https://launchpad.net/~azend

I'm afraid I can't make it this time; I'm saving myself for OpenDataDay:

*Event*: Open Data Day Hackathon
*Date*: Saturday, 22 February 2014
*Time*: 10:00am to 4:30pm

There's an Open Data Hackathon in Guelph too, 24 hours long with a
contest and prizes and everything!

*Event*: Open Guelph Hackathon
*Start*: Saturday, 22 February 2014 at 9:00am
*Finish*: Sunday, 23 February 2014 at 1:00pm
*Location*: Atrium, Science Complex, U of Guelph, 50 Stone Road East

*Website*: http://guelph.ca/event/open-guelph-hackathon/
*ODD2014*: http://wiki.opendataday.org/Guelph

Be sure to register before Saturday to get in. If you do go to the
Guelph hackathon, can you put an event in the Ubuntu LoCo event
portal? It's kinda lonely, having a Global Event with only one Ubuntu
chapter in it: http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/global/2703/

And for those people who don't want to travel to Guelph or Waterloo,
check to see if there's an OpenDataDay event near you:
http://wiki.opendataday.org/2014/City_Events  If there isn't, you can
create your own! If you do, can you also add it to the Ubuntu LoCo
Global Event?

Finally, don't forget about the IRC/Video Chat meeting next week
Thursday, 27 February:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CanadianTeam/Meetings/Next  This time we'll
have a Google Plus Hangout-On-Air to allow an unlimited number of
people to view. +JeffSmith is coordinating the video part; check out
the Ubuntu Canada LoCo  page at
https://plus.google.com/116845700584173888571/ where you can join the

See you all at #ODD2014 !
