We'd have to have a huge amount of CDs ready to sell (or, Hare-Krishna
style, give them away, and hope for donations).
Being a student, I've no problem taking a few days off to man a stand.
It's not on till october, so we would have a while to get organised...
Stuff to do: Request we could put up a speaker
Have a stand
Have people to man it
Have stuff to sell (profits go to ilug for more such stands)
Do people feel that this would be good use of the money ?
