        ------------------------------------------------------------------
        Saskatoon Linux Group - Saskatoon FreeNet Fair -
        ------------------------------------------------------------------
        
        OK here is the "planner" - it is under development! Please take
        the time to read it and if you have comments and additions to make,
        send it back with your changes. We still need staff for the booth
        as the current staff list will have to be refined. We will have
        several segments of 3 hours each. Please indicate your preferred
        time for each day. We will also have another organizational meeting
        a week before the fair.

        I cannot assure everyone a free ticket - that is, you might have to
        pay to get in - The SLG can reimburse you later if that is a
        problem.

        If you contaced me already regarding the fair and you are not on
        the listnow - forgive me, as I was a bit busy lately. Please
        send me e-mail again.
        
        Regards
                Andreas

        PS: The DEC loaner is confirmed and should be here soon!
