Hey Convergence planning people,
I have requested some giveaway stuff from O'Reilly on CLUG's behalf.
Last year they supplied us with an assortment of 10 Linux themed books for
giveaway. They also sent us a bunch of their catalogues which people also
snapped up at Convergence. We were supposed to have posters but they didn't
show up till after the show was done and they got wrecked in transit anyway.
I suspect/hope they will send a similar package to us again this year.
What we did in return was we had their logo on a sponsor's poster to
indicate who donated what to us.
I am working on getting the same display kit we had last year. I'll let you
know how that goes.
We had a few pictures blown up and affixed to the panels with Velcro. We had
a sponsors poster as I mentioned and a few other things. There is also a
large paper CLUG banner that was used for the show.
Something to keep in mind that we did last year was that CLUG foot the bill
for renting a table, tablecloth & skirting and several chairs. We did this
from Ideal Rentals on 17th Avenue (Easy to pick up before the show and drop
off after). They did accept a cheque from CLUG but want a credit card number
up front. If this is the kind of thing we want to do again this year,
someone should call them and reserve the items.
