About Fedora Hatch

Our vision for Hatch is to hopefully provide opportunities for Fedorans to get together in person if they so wish. The event does not have to fit a specific format, it will be up to who is inspired to run such an event. For example, someone on the discussion thread said they would organize a hike for Fedorans and someone else mentioned that they would like to do a Pub Quiz, IRL!
