[ubuntu-us-mn] How to start an installfest

I am trying to get an installfest started. Maybe even start something on a
regular basis.

As far as getting the word out. I just joined the list. I own a small
company, so I would be able to put a little bit of money into flyers or
postcards. I have made up some initial postcard designs based on other

As far as a location. I talked with a small computer company that has some
space in Eagan and they would like to host something. They also have some
good deals on computers ($150 for a used computer and 17" LCD) which I have
done some testing with. Maybe this would be a good way to raise some funds
for the next event (slightly mark up the computers for fund-raising).

As far as installing goes. I successfully setup an apt-cacher and have been
testing that out. I am planning on downloading some different Ubuntu
versions and burning CDs. I think the location would be able to provide
networking equipment (switch and server).

So any ideas on what my next steps would be? How many people I could expect?
