    Central Pennsylvania Open Source Conference 2009

    Hi all! Our illustrious Lyz has been selected to give a talk at CPOSC 2009 in Harrisburg, PA on Oct. 17th.

    Besides attending to support her, we'd like to be one of the sponsors and get a table at the event. $100 gets us a Bronze sponsorship, which will give us exposure on their handouts, marketing materials, and a table at the event. I've requested a conference pack, and have listed the event on Conference Appearances .

    Here's the rub. We need to drum up $100. Not a large sum of money, but I am asking for some donations to offset the expense. This will be a great event to promote Ubuntu, and to really get the ball rolling in Central Pennsylvania.

    Besides Ubuntu and Lyz, there are going to be some great talks, so I would encourage everyone who is close to consider coming to CPOSC!

    I've put a Paypal donation button on my CPOSC entry in my blog,
    so if you can throw a couple dollars at this, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Also, after the event I thought it would be nice to get together at the Appalachian Brewing Company (ABC) on Cameron Street for some local micro brew and socialization!

    Registration has opened (you'll need to register to volunteer at our table, but we'll man the table in shifts so you can see some talks too )

    http://www.cposc.org/register

    $34, but they feed you! And if you register by Sept 22nd you'll get a t-shirt as well.

    We're still looking for volunteers for our table (only have 2 so far!). So if you're coming out to the conference and can lend a hand, even for an hour or two, please add yourself to the wiki (or reply here, or drop me an email ).

    Keep in mind, if you're planning on coming registration closes on Tuesday the 13th, and they tend to sell out.

    Thanks!

    We have volunteers (although, we could always use more *hint*) and we're ready to roll!

    Hope to see you tomorrow at CPOSC!
