[Ubuntu-US-CA] Ubuntu booth volunteers for SCALE urgently needed!

Hi everyone,

We usually get quite a few booth volunteers for SCALE, and what with 
planning being delayed due to external behind-the-scenes issues and the 
Ubuntu wiki being what it is, we only have one confirmed volunteer for 
the Ubuntu booth.  (Not counting me: the project page will be updated 
tomorrow evening after I discuss scheduling with him.)

At this level of staffing, it is likely the booth may only be manned on 
Saturday, which is bad since SCALE donates booth space to non-profit 
organizations like Ubuntu, and if the booth isn't utilized they're 
likely to give our space to someone else next year.  (They're aware of 
the behind-the-scenes stuff, but that's not a guarantee for next year.)

Volunteering is fun and easy, and we have free full-access SCALE passes 
for the first couple of people who volunteer.  We need more bodies to 
stand in front of the booth and chat with visitors about Ubuntu.  We'll 
probably get lots of questions about Ubuntu, GNOME Shell, and snaps this 

Check the following page and see if you can make time to volunteer.  We 
especially need coverage for Friday night when I'm busy on stage for 
UbuCon at SCALE, and Sunday morning:


If you can volunteer for a full shift, please register for SCALE and 
email me privately with your registration number and email address.  We 
have fewer passes than usual this year, so it's first-come, first-serve.
