Happy to say this took place.

I had circulated it also to a local computer club, and what do you
know? One email apology for absence (but would come another time), one
in-person acknowledgment (at an unrelated meeting I happened to
attend) of an install being done on the person's friend's computer,
and above all, one person actually turned up!

I would not have been surprised if nobody had turned up. I was
surprised by the actual flurry of interest. The attender had
unsuccessfully tried gnu/linux some years ago and wanted to try again.
He was impressed by what he saw on my eeepc - xandros, UNR and Ubuntu
8.04, multi boot etc.

Ubuntu Hour is an good method of low investment local contact. Great
