Hello, everyone!

Preparations are well underway for the Orange County Linux Users Group 
installfest.  I'd like to announce that the installfest will take place 
on Saturday, May 24th, 2014 from 10am to 2pm.

At the OCLUG meeting this Saturday, we're going to finalize plans.  If 
anyone from Ubuntu California would like to help out with the 
installfest it'd be great to see them there.

To help with planning, I'd like to unveil the OCLUG Installfest flyers. 
  Simple and refined, they draw the eye, inform, and point the reader to 
the OCLUG website for further information.

These flyers are going to be distributed to certain department heads who 
  will share them with faculty for discussion with students.  To assist 
  faculty in discussing the event, a list of talking points with further 
information about installfests, Ubuntu,and OCLUG has been created and 
will be distributed to faculty as well.  CSUF faculty are really keen on 
the idea and this event has the potential to be rather well-attended.

These documents have the potential to serve as a template for future 
installfests by Ubuntu advocacy groups.

The flyers are vertical halfsheet designs that allow us to print two to
a page, reducing cost and making them much more friendly to be posted
around campus, in coffee shops, and so on.

The talking points sheet is meant as an aid to event advocates and not
as a handout.

A tarball with PDFs is available at the following location:


For the day of the installfest, I've also produced a liability release 
form here:


And a per-computer data sheet here:


Obviously I will publish these later at a more permanent location, but I 
wanted to present these documents for feedback sooner rather than later.
