One thing that seems to be missing on your list is the InstallFest.

At a LUG I was previously a member of, we used to have installfests
quite regularly (maybe once every month or two), and there was never any
end of "customers".  People would come in with their own boxes and we'd
help them get their preferred version of Linux installed.  We'd hold it
on a Saturday afternoon, order pizzas in to keep us going. It was quite
a fun and social time, which makes it quite a different experience from
turning up at someone's place and just getting "business" done.

Looks like they're still busy with them ... http://www.lugod.org/if/
