Well, if you're still on the fence you might qualify for this: http://kitenet.net/~joey/blog/entry/Sponsoring_non-regulars_for_DebConf10/ (particularly as you mention you have never attended a DebConf before) Also, NYC is very active in Clojure, as far as I can tell from the LispNYC group: http://www.lispnyc.org/home.clp (don't miss the talk by Rich Hickey in 13 November 2007, it's called "Clojure - A Dynamic Programming Language for the JVM" ';-) If you e-mail their mailing list you might get to meet some other Clojure people aside from the DebConf crowd.
