DON'T USE THIS PAGE ANYMORE TO TRACK EVENT REPORTS
This page has been deprecated in favor of putting reports on the FedoraEvents page. However, it's here for historical purpose. Eventually, when we have moved all of the data from these events to their appropriate place on FedoraEvents, the page could possibly be removed.
This page is intended to help us track any/all FAMNA events where Fedora was discussed and shared. If you know of an event that is not here, please add it and let us know by posting on the [], blogging about it, or in the #fedora-ambassadors channel on irc.freenode.net. Thank you for your kind contribution to growing Fedora in North America and around the world!
The goal of this page is to help get more visuals for events which FAMNA members attend. Because some events are attended by Ambassadors, but don't make the Event list and don't get reported directly, compiling a list here of all events can help justify more fund in the future for FAMNA.

|XO Presentation at ROCGeeks||Rochester,NY||2008-10-04||https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-ambassadors-list/2008-October/msg00057.html|| The meet-up went well. There were about a dozen people in attendance. Linux, Mac and Win users
The XO laptops were front and center and I believe almost everyone had a chance to use one if they wanted to. I discussed the XO, it's basic functions, the concept of OLPC and Fedora's involvement with the project. I even had to show the machine to people in the shop who weren't part of the meet up group.
