|Subject: [hangout] Plans for Flyer Distriubtion
Evan has sent me samples of the flyers for classes and the open house.
I want to now discuss our commitments for the Open House and our
schedule for flyer distributions.
Over the next couple of days I will be contacting several select
individuals about commitments for the Open House and the flyers.
In terms of the Open House, I have several informal commitments for
small (and the key word here is small) and hands on demonstrations for
the Open House. Among the ideas we are planning is LDAP authentication,
Multimedia and sound (cd ripping etc), remote access through X, Office
automation and graphics, GNU/Linux for kids, programming tools, and CD
distribution (burning Memphis on the fly for users and giving them the
the Flyer distribution needs to start on Monday November 29th. We need
to get members and associates to put up flyers in their own
neighborhoods, including Astoria, Greenpoint, Brooklyn Heights, Cobble
Hill, Bedford Stuyvesant, Red Hook, Kings Highway, Staten Island,
Brooklyn College, Avenue U and Avenue N. If we can, I'd like to also
reach Park Slope.
The Sunday and Monday before the Open House, we need 3 people on each
day, to hand out flyers during the evening rush on Monday, and in the
afternoon of Sunday. If we can muster the manpower, I'd like to get
someone on Sunday at the Brooklyn Public Library.
I'm asking everyone to think about setting aside a few hours for these
activities in your busy schedules. I know that everyone is under
pressure and time constraints, but please try to make some time
available for this. The life blood of NYLXS is membership and doing
this well is essential for the success of the organization.
