Dear Melbourne PM members,

Next year from January 28th - February 2nd, Melbourne will host one of the
world's best FOSS conferences: Linux.conf.au.  On the last day, Saturday
February 2nd we will be running an Open Day for the general public to
showcase open source.  The 2007 open day had a fantastic line-up of
displays including:

	- Virtual Reality
	- Blender 3D
	- One Laptop Per Child
	- MythTV
	- Linux Gaming
(for more see: http://www.linux.org.au/conf/2007/OpenDay.html)	

To make this day more fabulous, I would like to invite your group to host a
community table.  There are only three requirements:

	- Every demo must have Open Source involved.
	- Your stand must be accessible to the general public.
	- You need to supply your own computers, flyers and people.

In return, we'll supply you with tables, chairs, power sources, wireless
(hopefully) and visitors.  With luck you can raise the profile of your user
group (and get some more members) while increasing the attendees' awareness
of Open Source.

If your group would be interested in having a stand, please let me know by
eithe r responding to this email or contacting openday at mel8ourne.org  If
you'd like to attend or if you know anyone who might like to attend please
register (it's free) at:


Everyone is welcome and I encourage you to bring your friends and family.

All the best,
