What budget will you have for getting brochures printed and similar

Probably zero or close to zero budget. I'll ask for donations and see
if Team OOo can help here. What usually happens is that we do this
out of pocket, ie, I pay for it on my own.
What about a banner for the booth? Is one available? Should the
booth have one? Does the art project have a banner design? I got a
very nice 2'x6' full-colour banner for US$72 for the ODFellowship
booth at SCALE, from ultimatebanners.com; you might like to use
them if you don't already have another supplier.
Thanks for the tip. I'll look into it. We used to have one but last I
heard of it Sam H. had it last year. I wrote him about it but I
suspect that he has filtered my mail to him as junk :-/
You mention people to staff the booth, but how about planning
and preparation? You mention you will try to coordinate the the
schedule as well as collateral; would you prefer to have someone
else handle all of that, considering how many other things you
are responsible for?
Of course :-) But I'd never wish to impose such a burden :-).
Good grief! Why ever not? That's what community members are for! If
you give people the impression that you're always going to do
everything yourself, why should anyone volunteer to take on some of
I was being a little ironic :-) People are more than welcome, of
course, to volunteer their services and help, and I've put out calls
for help as is quite apparent by now. Several have come through.
