MEETING CANCELLED FOR Texas Linux Fest!!!
Will resume normal time: September 1st, (Labor Day Weekend!)
A bunch of us are car pooling and Mega-bussing it down to San Antonio, TX for texaslinuxfest.org. Last year was a great fest, and this year looks to be even bigger (with some great talks). Should be a good time. If you are interested hit the mailing list and hook up with others that are going.
!!! If you are planning on attending Friday Tracks please speak up! There is at least one person presenting on Friday on the list that would like to car pool. !!!
There is one car load already full, if you want to volunteer to drive (and get some free snacks ;) post to the list. I'll mention this to the NTLUG group this morning so we should see some cross-pollination, and more drivers/riders...
If you want to take the bus route, post what time you are departing both days so people can sync up!
$20 or $50, up to you.
Hotel: Springfield Inn
3636 NW Loop 410
San Antonio, TX 78201
$99 day (single king under TXLF, 2-bed room allocation depleted)
$109/day for multiple occupancy (no conf discount)
Drive time listed as 5H 21m
Dropped off at 4th and Broadway. (7mi/15mins away)
So factor in cab fare for all involved.
Or city bus is reasonable at 40 mins (and two 5 minute walks after 11pm) .
More than 4 people in a group, which would be awesome BTW.
Carpool from the Makerspace:
Direct driving is just under 5 hrs.
600mi round trip, 34MPG in the Honda Fit = 17.6 gallons@ $3.30 = $60 (rounding up from $58).
4 people splitting the cost is $15ea, plus $5 tip for expert driving and snacks for driver...
No extra costs like cabs, but limited to 4 people per car.
