Two of us drove from Sierra Vista to attend the initial meeting of the Tucson Linux Meet-Up. The meeting took place at the Summit Hut, 5251 E. Speedway Blvd, Tucson from 6-7:30pm. There were 11 attendees. After an introduction of all those present to include their backgrounds there was a discussion on the direction(s) that the group should take to meet the members needs and desires. The concept of presentations to the group was well received and several attendees volunteered to give them.

Three of us from Sierra Vista drove up to Tucson to attend an “unofficial” Tucson Free Unix Group meeting at Cafe Luce in Main Gate Square outside of the University of Arizona on 31 July 2016 at 2:30 pm. There were four Tucson residents there who were interested in starting physical meetings for the group. We provided them with POCs for both AZLOCO and the Cochise Linux User Group in Sierra Vista and some basic information on communication between members and some requirements for holding Installation Festivals/Linux Workshops.
