0)    North Dartmouth -Albro Lake area, about 5 minutes drive from 
either MacDonald bridge or McKay bridge.

1) I am interested in having monthly meetings, either social or Technical.

2) At almost every meeting I  learn something new, or hear about 
something interesting which prompts me to research it further.  At my 
first nSLUG meeting I arrived with a new Win7 laptop computer, and was 
aided in installing Ubuntu during the meeting.  Perhaps we should 
publicize a meeting inviting those considering a new computer, or those 
who might be interested in extending the life of an old one, to come and 
see what Linux has to offer.

3) In Dartmouth, Sobeys on Wyse Road, the Alderney Drive or North 
Dartmouth Library could all provide accessible facilities. Moreover, 
each of those locations is serviced by Metro Transit, for those without 
access to other transportation.

4) Someone's home could be good, but I would feel uncomfortable not to 
be able to reciprocate -we have a small house, with no area which would 
be appropriate for a group.
