Yeah, we are not that organized to have a fancy agenda, or put on a 
Linux conference. There are projects that people share, and ask for 
help, answer questions, etc.

As far as involving new people, we just added a bunch of Raspberry Pi 
(vicpimakers.ca) people who also have an interest in Linux, which is why 
we are opening a discussion about other places to meet, as we can't grow 
much bigger at the Rustik Cafe.

Sooke is not _that_ far way, I ride my bike out there on nice weather days.
