Excellent but not enuff time. More coming in part 2 in a couple months. Also need some additional

Also used on hand Linux4Beginner and Password tri-fold flyers.
Booth was manned by Lee Lammert, Carl Fitch, Gary McGee, Phil Bunch, Stan Reichardt, Jay Truesdale, and (?)
Center facilities quite nice.
Our booth way too small.
Carl Fitch can sell free software.
Need newer logo on SLUUG sign.
New vector format of SLUUG logo is in hand, .. we can print any size sign when we wish.
Plan for next year is to negotiate a 10x10 booth, or, at the very least, a corner booth so we can turn the 2nd table out to the side.
