HCC - regio Vlaanderen proposed Ubuntu-be a cooperation within their 
booth (total length 16 m.)
A space (about 3m width) is reserved for Ubuntu-be and HCC-Vl proposes 
to install a multiseat from from Linux-Service.
guydup suggests to use a multiseat with 2x 250cm in a 90° angle or in 
square also:250x250cm with a big inflatable tux in the middle.
Volunteers: for the 2 days, we need 2 different teams of 3. nero and 
jurgen (both members of HCC-Vl) will (likely) coordinate the teams. Who 
(from Antwerp area is volunteer for this event.
Ubuntu-be can provide promotion material (posters, banners, flyers, and 
s.o. - to be determined).
CD's: the stock of Canonical official CD's is very limited. It will be 
necessary to burn CD-R's at home before the event. Question is where to 
buy CD-R's at the best price ? Model of Ubuntu 9.10 CD sleeve (to be 
home-printed on a white CD-sleeve) is available in the wiki 

f. Ubuntu 10.04LTS release
HCC Vl would like to organise an install party shortly after 10.04LTS 
release date : we can support this event.
