Glen, I was specifically suggesting that we do a PyCon video watchingon Sat Jun 11/18 and *not* disrupt the regular fourth-Thursday talkscheduled. So I take it you did +1 me doing this on a Saturday.I was volunteering to find a venue once again. So far I got zero response from anyone else.If I don't get any +1's, I will not look into this.If we get a quorum (10 people?) I will look into it.Either way I will take it offlist.
Going twice...?

For Jun, do we want to do a PyCon 2016 video watching? (Sat Jun 11/18)This wouldn't take up the fourth-Thursday talk slot, we found 4-8 hours on a Saturdayseemed to be preferred best. Glen's suggestion on format was that we vote in advance(SurveyMonkey) on which videos people most wantedto watch, then make a schedule.People can split into separate groups to watch different videos/discuss/hack/chat.
You know I love these ideas :) They are things that I did through my own MeetUp years ago. I love the format of taking the best PyCon videos and sharing them with the group. As you pointed out, it doesn't really work for the BayPIGgies fourth-Thursday slots - so, not a typical BayPIGgies thing.
But, not to fret -- I am going to PyCon this year and I'd be happy to do the same thing again. It was always fun for me to have a big "Saturday movie fest" with Pizza and chilling out watching the best talks and chatting.
If we get +1s, I volunteer to find venue (free, wifi, allows us bringing food/pizza in, near Caltrain).(I previously found an awesome corporate venue in Sunnnyvale for this back in 2013 but theevent didn't happen, and that particular venue is no longer available. But I know ofsome others.)
Any +1's to a PyCon 2016 video watching on Jun 11 or 18?
I hate to block such a good idea -- cuz it's one I obviously support :) 
But, my personal vote is:
BayPIGgies has been through enough upheaval lately. Let's get back to our consistent routine of 4th-thursdays and back on track.
HOWEVER, if you and I want to throw a party on those days (Jun 11 or 18) outside of BayPIGgies and then invite all of those from BayPIGgies, then everyone would be invited. And, it would be fun. 
If possible, can we take that conversation off-list? You and I can chat and come up with some goodness. I know the Silicon Vally Python MeetUp group would happily sponsor the event. I can even get a big sponsorship for Pizza :)
