Help Needed
Some of our fellow amateurs are in need of help, simply because they cant do it any longer.  Sometimes it's as simple as moving some equipment, and sometimes it requires in situ antenna work.
Please contact any of the executive if you are willing to give a hand.

For those of you who are just starting to play around with Raspberry Pi and/or Linux, we are holding an event that aims to pair newbies with experts and provide a place for you to ask questions and to get ideas. 

If you are having trouble getting your Raspberry Pi and/or "Linux stuff" installed or working properly or are merely curious what all the fuss is about, this is the place to visit. 

This event is open to anyone and is offered *free of charge*, however, we are accepting donations for the Algonquin Students' Association Food Cupboard drive.  Information can be found on the event web page. 

The pertinent details for the event are: 

  Saturday, May 23rd, 2015 from 0900h to 1600h Eastern 
  Algonquin College, Woodroffe Avenue Campus (Ottawa), Room T119 

To reserve your spot, please use the registration link found on the main event page. 

Folks may feel free to drop-in whenever they like throughout the day. Free parking is available in lots 8, 9 and 12 and there is also adequate public transit across the street to/from Baseline Station. detailed directions available on the main event site. 

We are planning to have a few short demo presentations spaced throughout the day to demonstrate various Raspberry Pi projects or cool things that you can do with them.  Please check back on the main site often as we refine the schedule. 

Buyapi, a local distributor of Arduino and Raspberry Pi products, will likely also have Raspberry Pi units and other related products available there for sale. 

Lunch (pizza or subs) will be provided for a small fee for those who are interested.
