Proposals are still open for the Hack-A-Way in 2020.  Right now we have
several locations that have expressed interest but no actual proposals.
Past entities that have hosted the Hack-A-Way have included Calvin College,
Equinox (twice), State Library of Indiana (thrice), and MassLNC.

The Hack-A-Way is a great opportunity to host a community event that
doesn't require the resources of the conference.  The Hack-A-Way is an
annual event now in its 9th year and an opportunity for developers to work
together face to face and do strategic planning for the coming year for
Evergreen.  The event is held in the Fall each year and more details can be
found here:

The host facility is expected to provide the following:

   - A clean meeting space for 15 - 30 people.
   - Working space and power for laptops.
   - A TV, projector or other display.
   - Adequate bandwidth for the users.
   - A few snacks and forms of hydration and caffeine to keep blood sugar
   and typing up.
   - Facilitate reasonable hotel accommodations (cheaper is better but no
   bed bugs).
   - Although not required, it has become a tradition for the host to
   supply lunches.

What a host receives for their labors is good will, recognition, helping
move development forward and a warm fuzzy feeling inside.
