I'm not sure I have all the context leading up to this e-mail. There are 
some things I would like to see us do at LUC:

1. Host a ChiPy meeting. Based on average attendance, I can offer our 
conference room.

2. Plan for the next PyCon. I'm hopeful that we can do something about 
conference space in '06-'07 due to a number of exciting building projects 
going on here at Loyola.

When is the next ChiPy gathering? I'd be interested to do something in 
October or (better) November at our 820 N. Michigan location.
