<jimrz> me too
<dthomasdigital> but I'm open
<ColonelPanik> There are numerous game/computer/coffee places in Albuq/RR  Maybe a display in each of them.  Even if its just a poster and some CDs?
<jimrz> we have enough active folks now to handle
<genfool> If for some reason one falls through the cracks???
<gcleric> ColonelPanik: that's a good Idea!  A mini display with CD's.
<dthomasdigital> That;s true this year we really need to market will hel the LoCo, SFD, and NMLF
<gcleric> dthomasdigital: agreed.
<genfool> exactly

<dthomasdigital> I'll add the info here http://softwarefreedomday.org/teams/northamerica/NM/Albuquerque/NewMexicoUbuntuLoco
<gcleric> genfool: is there prior contact required or is it a dry call?
<dthomasdigital> genfool good idea as the date gets closer we need to remember that

<ColonelPanik> The schools will be in session, hit the science/computer teachers
<dthomasdigital> Sure my bad
