Rugby Ubuntu meet up
As most people on here I love Ubuntu and promote it where I can, another thing I love however is RUGBY no not Ruby! When there is a match on the tv I tweet it for folks I follow to join in the rants/discussions on how the game is going, but also on IRC. I am also a firm believer that any community is based upon people who have other interests outside of Ubuntu/OSS want to meet up and discuss other things and not just go to conferences.
When I moved to the UK I had nobody to go watch games in the pub, I decided after talking to people in the #ubuntu-uk who also like Rubgy and Ubuntu to organise a meet up to watch a game together. Dan Fish picked the pub and I picked the game.
Next week on Saturday 19th Match the Ubuntu-uk LoCo are going to go watch a game of rugby over some drinks/food and catch up with people who like Rugby and Ubuntu. Even if you’ve no interest in Rugby but do want to meet people come along. If Ubuntu is not your flavor, or you’ve no interest in OSS but just love rugby come along! Be nice to meet more folks over here.
I chose the Ireland V England game! It should be a good game and everyone is welcome to come along, I’ve added the event to the LoCo directory so do sign up if you’re coming along so we can get more seats.
Lets hope the ref will be able to make better judgement calls than he did over the Wales game ! *mutters*
