Francesco, thank you for your posting. :)
> It's my pleasure and honour to announce the F11 Release Events Contest
> winners: Kevin Higgins with the Vancouver, WA (USA) release event,
> Neville A. Cross with the Managua (NI) release event and, finally,
> Truong Anh Tuan with the Hanoi (VN) release event.
Kevin, Neville and Truong, well done!!! :)
Ambassadors, together we do great things. :)
> For the Fedora 11 release, FAmSCo wanted to give some of the
> Ambassadors who organized great release events an opportunity to
> attend a FUDCon or a FAD in their region, and to meet more of the
> community face to face. As such, we're going to be providing some
> sponsorship opportunities to some of the organizers of great Fedora
> release events.
> Our decision was based not only on the quality of the event, that sure
> was the base requirement, we also took care of the experience of the
> people and the potential they could express in future events and in
> the whole project, both in a regional and global perspective.
> For several releases now, Fedora Ambassadors have been organizing
> release events all over the world, becoming a natural component of our
> activity and showing us the maturity of the project. The purpose of
> these events is to promote the new release of Fedora, to raise
> awareness among local communities, and to educate users and developers
> on the most important features of the release.
> These release events are low-cost and are therefore easy to scale
> worldwide. As a means of encouraging these events, we have
> occasionally offered some sort of reward for the best events.
> FAmSCo wants to thank all the participants for their amazing job: stay
> sure that we will continue to encourage it.
> For future Fedora releases, we hope to do the same thing, and to
> spread the sponsorship around so that folks all over the world have
> opportunities to attend FUDCons. It is a high priority for us that we
> continue to grow Fedora Ambassadors all over the world.
> We are proud to have such great people on this marvelous team!
> Stay tuned
> On Behalf of FAmSCo

> p.s. A special thanks goes to Joerg Simon for his detailed review of all the events.
Definitely, special thanks to Joerg Simon!! :)
Please have a great day! :~)
