We hold a regular monthly meeting every third Wednesday. We are in the process of planning the next BoulderSprint, which we hope to hold on a regular basis. In the future we may hold a BoulderJam to play with an exciting new technology together.
Lastly, there has been talk of helping pair mentors with aspiring Pythoneers. If you are so aspirationally inclined, please contact us!
Our web site is at [http://www.fr.co.us.pythoneers.org/]. Thanks to [http://tummy.com tummy.com, ltd.] and their principals, SeanReifschneider and Evelyn Mitchell, for generously hosting us.

We just happen to have the friendliest bunch of Python people coming to our meetings. So why not come too?
- Date/time: Every 3rd Wednesday, 6-8 PM
Location: Jill's at the [http://www.stjulien.com St Julien Hotel], [http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=9th+and+Walnut,+Boulder,+CO&ie=UTF8&z=15&om=1&iwloc=A 9th and Walnut], the bar area.
Default topic: OpenSpace
Meeting: November 15, 2006
Meeting: October 18, 2006
Discussed possible proposals for PyCon2007. The basic consensus was that it was a great idea that for PyCon "we're especially interested in presentations that will teach conference-goers something new and useful." In particular, we all would like to see talks with more useful takeaway code, not just talks saying, hey we are doing great things with Python. Trust us .
Began planning of BoulderSprint, which apparently has been a burning desire for JimBaker for a while.
BoulderJam, an opportunity to try out interesting technologies together.
