The next meetup of Santa Cruz Python will be held in the Atrium 
Classroom of Cruzio, located at 877 Cedar Street, Santa Cruz, CA.

Regular monthly Santa Cruz Python meetups are held on the second 
Tuesday of the month at Cruzio.

We are looking for additional presenters of Python topics. A 
presentation can consist of slides, a code walk through, demo, 
tutorial, or even interpretive dance.  Please email Steve 
(web at stevepiercy.com) or Chris (cklippi at gmail.com).

We are seeking potential sponsors for food, tasty beverages, or 
room rental fees. Please refer sponsors to Chris or Steve.
