Hi folks,
     My friend and former colleague Tomek has moved back to Poland, and 
wants to get the ball rolling there with a "hackfest".
He emailed me for advice, so I thought I'd pass this on to the group, 
as some of you have a lot more experience organizing events than I.
Here is the email:

Can anyone give some pointers about how to get the ball rolling, do's 
and don'ts etc... ?

     Maybe you can give the guys a quick description of what you are 
Are you organizing a particular event (like a hackfest/hackathon), or a 
more permanent club/group like TOG?
