Don't even _start_ to go there !

Anyone want to stand ? I'm stepping down (If I didn't have to - the wife

that, a committee. They're there mainly to allow the ILUG to hold a
bank account, and to have a point of contact for external organisations
should they wish to contact us.
If anyone wants an event - there's nothing stopping you, as a member of
ILUG, going out and representing ILUG at your local bring & buy sale
(bring a batch of CDs !!) or organising a local showing of RevolutionOS,
or starting a local series of installfests.
The committee have dayjobs too (well most of us), and we have a finite
amount of time to dedicate to any projects - especially any distance
from where we normally reside.
Oh ... a heartfelt thanks to all who _do_ participate, and to those
souls who give up what little time they have to organise events, to show
up, and to generally _do_ things.
Outgoing Chairman - ILUG - And Proud of it !
