Yes definately. I thought I'd sent an invite to SF-LUG
but I thought I was subscribed to BALUG as well so
what do I know!

If anybody is interested in exhibiting for SF-LUG or
for any other Open Source/Free Software groups or
projects drop us an email we'd love to have you. Dont
be put off by the "fun and interactive" thing, while
 obviously we'd love all our exhibitors to have
exciting attention grabing stands we do understand
thats a lot easier for some projects then others.

Theres a list of speakers at
