No need to apologize.  I just had several people who were pushing this
item, and your message just happened to appear at a convenient time.

Yeah, I understand.  I'm going to have to burn some of my own annual leave
for this one, and am not too thrilled about that either.

Please keep in mind though, that while we do need people to be at the
booth on these days to answer questions, etc..  There is probably more
that needs to be done prior to the show.  For instance, someone needs to
put together any literature we want to hand out.  Right now I'm planning
to use the brochures that Kyle Moore created for the CLIQ show.  However,
I still think a list of Linux related businesses would be good to have as
well. Several people have offered information to put on this list, but it
needs to be compiled and printed.  We also need to decide what, if any,
computer demo we want to have, acquire the hardware, and configure it for
the demo. This is all stuff that doesn't require a presence at the booth
on the event day.

This is our chance to show the business community how cool Linux is.
Based on the response I've been getting so far I can see why they'd rather
choose something else.
