I was writing in this moment but Ricardo did first ;-). Yeah, we were just
two archers but we did some installations and some people got interested in
testing arch, so this is our first step here in Venezuela to do local
events, and start recruiting new archers, i hope assist to another local and
national linux events in the country, to recruit more people, and get the
Arch Linux Community bigger :-).

I hope to have some pictures this week to post it.

Also i noticed that some archers in Panama and some archers in Argentina
(Mendoza) were installing Arch Linux, i hope to know how good they did :-)
