QCLUG Linux Tech Showcase 2014

Proposed Locations

  • QC Co-Lab if it were an outside event, the overhang could offer shelter for equipment should it rain. Could also grill hot dogs and such. Could have it in conjunction with QC Co-Lab, and Ham Radio enthusiasts. Of course we would need to see what the QC Co-Lab and Hamilton Tech's take on this.

Proposed Dates and Times

  • Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. somewhere between May and September.

Proposed Volunteers

  • Brian Dietz with potential necessary equipment (tables, ice barrels for beverages, plug strips, generator, networking) from Graybar down the street from QC Co-Lab. Additionally, donated PCs from my personal stash (I will try and catalog what I have)

Proposed Donated Equipment List

Proposed PR

  • Announce via check it out.
  • BestBuy (geeksquad dept)
  • Staples (similar geeksquad dept)
  • Post to the other Iowa and Illinois LUGS
