[ubuntu-us-wi] Ubuntu Hour - Example: Ask establishment for permission

Here's an example of an email I sent to a local coffee shop requesting
permission to have Ubuntu Hour there:


I've visited Red Mug a few times and I really enjoy the establishment. Given
that, I was wondering if I could have permission to have an Ubuntu Hour once
a week or so (probably on Saturday) in Red Mug, as the atmosphere would be
perfect for such a thing. Some information about my overall goal for this:

In brief, Ubuntu Linux is a safe, open source, community-oriented operating
system for anyone. Through Ubuntu Hour, our goal is to help make people
aware of a free and unrestricted alternative to Windows or Apple's
OSX. Basically,
we would come in and enjoy some coffee, use our laptops/netbooks, and answer
questions if someone approaches us about the operating system that we
are using.
We may be bringing some printed materials, but no gear that would disrupt
any other patrons. Note that this is not a for-profit endeavor, just an
effort to get the word out.

This would require no special accomodations on Red Mug's part - like any
other patron, we'll be purchasing coffee and using a table. The only difference
is that we'll be there on behalf of Ubuntu Linux, answering questions and
engaging in discussion as we are approached. If we aren't approached, we'll
have enjoyed coffee and the already great atmosphere - no loss.

Thank you for your time,

Maybe this will be of some help and/or a template to get ideas on how to ask
management at an establishment.
