Two seem to be well on their way (Hasselt & Brussels), with two other
ones in the pipeline (Liège & Roeselare). See also:

I am trying to find a 500 to 1000 € printing & shipping budget for
promo materials. Polyvalent posters in particular could be put to very good use.

Some potential uses:
* promotion of ubuntu-be.org activities
* at ubuntu-be.org activities
* school and other non-profit requests: We regularly receive requests
for promo materials, and up until now we have had to disappoint them.

Sponsorship offers welcome. Please contact mark op markvdb.be .

Do you know of laptops with at least 256 Mb ram laying around
somewhere unused? Ubuntu-be.org could put them to _really_ good use
for local event boxes. Laptops make event boxes portable. A huge
advantage, as many volunteers have no car at their disposal.

Our budget for this is non-existent, but our cause is noble...

We need a meeting soon. Stay tuned for more news on this one.
