Well, is there a footy oval or similar open space nearby that we can 
use?  If so, we could have an antenna "shootout" - see what relative gain 
different antennas have.  Perhaps setup some OSPF and VoIP and have a large 
chat room - see how far we can push it with strategically placed nodes. :)

We should look at promoting ourselves to groups such as LUV and 
MLUG.  There is a lot of overlap in the interests of each group.  I can't 
make any specific commitments yet, but I should be able to help out somewhere.
