Please RSVP if you're planning to come (see further below).

For our 2010-07-20 BALUG meeting, at least presently we don't have
a specific speaker/presentation lined up for this meeting, but that
doesn't prevent us from having interesting and exciting meetings.  Got
questions, answers, and/or opinions?  We typically have some expert(s)
and/or relative expert(s) present to cover LINUX and related topic
areas.  Want to hear some interesting discussions on LINUX and other
topics?  Show up at the meeting, and feel free to bring an agenda if
you wish.  Good food, good people, and interesting conversations to be

Also, if you're interested and willing to do a talk/presentation at
a BALUG meeting, or do or may know someone that would be interested in
doing so, please feel free to drop us a note or contact us - you can
find the information on how to reach us on our main web page.

So, if you'd like to join us please RSVP to:

                    rsvp at balug.org

**Why RSVP??**

Well, don't worry we won't turn you away, but the RSVPs really help the
Four Seas Restaurant plan the meal and they help ensure that we'll be
able to eat upstairs in the private banquet room.
