I think the problem will be that the average LUG is all/majority white
men which is pretty un-Ubuntu as far as marketing goes.

A picture of geeks reinforces the stereotypes which we certainly don't

Also a lot of LUGs meet monthly which won't give them time to put
something together before the expo. GLLUG's next meeting is actually at
the expo, for example.
