... Raspberry Pioneers.

I think this is a great moniker for us Pi enthusiasts. - Not only are we at the cutting edge of this project, but many of us were at the cutting edge of the 8-bit revolution in the '80s.

So, come on, community, be a Pioneer!

No, those are the serfs that Liz will be whipping, while they box and mail the boards out to us Pioneers.

How about just "Raspberries"? It is simple, and only needs a secret handshake to make it a real club...

Piers?

Raspberry Tarts is fun, though I'm more of a tart-let as I'm a complete newbie to this sort of thing

Raspites.

It would be slightly inaccurate as Liz and Eben get no Raspite.

Once it would have been quite simple – we"d be

*rattle of drums*

The PiMen!!!!!

But nowadays that"s not considered inclusive enough. 

Perhaps "The Pi-pers at the Gates of Dawn"?

Nahhhh.

Edit for really dreadful spelling.

Indubitably.

But she's far too ladylike to tell us that.  However, I imagine she has an impressive 200MW stare......

Yes! she puts paddington bear to shame (and has marmalade sandwiches in her handbag too)
