My work travel often complicates things, but I'd love to join in if the date fits!

Sounds like a good idea to me! $100 each will get us seats at a decent restaurant but that could be complicated for families. I would love for you all to meet my one and a half year old :) He will impress you with big words like "ambadidi" for ambulance.
Here are some things that would make an event doable for my family (this may not apply to others):
- something around the time frame of 12pm - 3pm or 4pm - 7pm (nap windows)- some place where we can move around easily (restaurants make this difficult)- weekends are a bit easier- an event with a flexible time to drop in and out -- e.g. to work around unpredictable nap schedules
Chicago winter officially ends June 1st so outdoors may be an option!

Are Mozillians in Chicago interested in organizing something?

If so, I'm happy to wrangle something simple - started an etherpad for

thoughts and suggestions.

Hi Remoties,

For the past few years we?ve gathered together in MozSpaces to enjoy time

with friends, family and colleagues.  This year, as Mozilla Remoties,

you'll have the opportunity to self-organize and define what Friends &

Family Day means to you with a little help from Mozilla.  This is something

new we're trying and we're excited to see your ideas!

How? There are 3 ways to participate:

   1. *Join a MozSpace celebration*: Find them at If

   your proximity to one of our MozSpaces allows you to join us, that would be

   awesome!  We'll include you in the festivities, but any costs for

   traveling/lodging belong to you.

   2. *Organize a Regional meet up*: If you live close to other Remoties

   this is a great way to connect and celebrate.  Find other Remoties on

   IRC #awayteam, Remoties on Yammer or check out  You can expense up to

   $100 USD for each Mozillian attending your group event.

   3. *Remotie individual celebration*: If you aren?t near other Remoties

   but would like to participate in Friends and Family Day, let us know.  This

   could be a night at the movies or an outing to a fun venue with those

   closest to you (bonus points for flashing Mozilla swag). You can expense up

   to $100 USD towards your festivities.

*What about SWAG?*

We want to send you some!  Because your work address is also your home

address we need your permission to do so. Opt in using the RSVP.


RSVP: Fill out the Remotie RSVP <> by Friday

May 13, 2016.

Celebrations: Please plan your events to occur by June 30, 2016.

Expensify:  Expenses must be submitted by July 29, 2016.


Contact moz-remotie-help at for questions about this event.

Warm Regards,

Lisa Gray
