I think that we'll be having our first organizational meeting on Monday
at 8pm EDT. It's on IRC. If anyone is interested I'll forward the
info when I know for certain.

One of the things that we be discussing is boilerplated PR stuff that
can be localized by each LUG.

The distributions shouldn't be a problem. At the COMDEX show in Toronto
in July we had Caldera, SuSE and RedHat send up almost 3000 CDs between
them. I'm certain that they would be willing to send up a score or more
for each LUG as well as full distributions (manuals, commercial software,
etc.) as door prizes and volunteer trophies.

I can't promise anything but a contact a Corel thinks that their new
software should be ready by Sept 26th (hint hint :).
