To clarify, BALUG already has a booth. We just need to confirm that we want it and coordinate with other LUGs if a folks want a joint booth.

[Caution: multiple lists on To:/Cc: lines]
How about a combined shared LUGs booth/table?
Many LUGs may not have enough resource to staff a booth/table for the whole event by themselves, but many/most can cover at least some hours, and likely also provide some materials (e.g. flyers/handouts).
This worked fairly well last year. Would someone (perhaps from SF-LUG?) want to take lead on obtaining/coordinating such a booth?
Also, looks like Debian may not have a booth this year (LinuxWorld conflicts with Deb Camp - so most of the otherwise available DDs will be at Deb Camp and not LinuxWorld) ... but BAD would likely also be interested in some BAD/Debian representation at LinuxWorld too.
