[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Greetings, Fedora friends, near and far:

There's no place like FUDCon, and you don't want to miss this one! The 2013 North American FUDCon will be held in Lawrence, Kansas, on the campus of the University of Kansas. If you are planning on attending, it's never too early to pre-register and start thinking about your travel plans, and it's never too soon for us to remind you doing these things! :)

FUDCon Lawrence will take place January 18-20, 2013.


A few travel-oriented notes:

HOTEL: Rooms at the FUDCon hotel can be booked now. We have a block of rooms at the Springhill Suites in Lawrence; please book your room by December 14 to take advantage of the rates, though sooner is always better. Hotel booking information is on the wiki:

AIRPORT TO LAWRENCE TRAVEL: If you need a ride to Lawrence from the Kansas City airport, once you know your flight itinerary, add it to our flights page:

Then click your heels three times and say, "There's no place like Spot's SuperVan!" ... seriously, though, we will have various people organizing rides to and from the airport.

We are now also officially accepting subsidy requests for travel to Lawrence. Funding requests are accepted between now (November 6) and November 13. If you are requesting a subsidy, we just have a few steps that we ask you to follow:

1: Register on the FUDCon Lawrence pre-registration app at:
2: Check the "Need funding?" box.
3: Create a funding request ticket in the FUDCon trac at:

General information about being sponsored can be found at:

Requests are processed in the order they are submitted, though generally prioritization is giving to local travel over international travel first. Requests will be reviewed by fellow Fedora community members at FUDCon subsidy request meetings over the next few weeks.

The first subsidy meeting will take place on Thursday, November 15. The time and IRC channel will be announced as we approach that day. If necessary, a second meeting will take place Friday, November 16.

As always, participation both in planning as well as subsidy granting is ALWAYS welcome. Please join us on the fudcon-planning mailing list for information about planning meetings, as well as for general FUDCon updates.
