I think this is a great idea.  Our local LUG has a banner, although 
sadly we haven't done too many events, but we did find that having an 
LUG banner got one or two people off the street going into the events, 
maybe because they'd heard of Linux.  I'm sure an Ubuntu banner would do 
the same if not more, or at least make people think "What is this Ubuntu

Ahh I'm just as bad, I put together our LUG banner with the help of a 
logo from another LUG member but it wasn't that great.  Maybe something 
colourful (new Ubuntu Logo, maybe even some of the Ubuntu purple 
background on there?) would stand out?
