(top-posting, info regarding Linux Picnic) 

Here's a copy of the body of an email message I 
got on or about July 8: 


Open Source projects and groups may now reserve tables at 
the Linux Picnicfor displays or social/meeting areas.  
See the Table Layout and Assignments page on the wiki:

To reserve a table, ask on the linuxpicnic at linuxpicnic.org 
mail list.
Or contact Venkat or me.

Most group reservations will be limited to 1 table.  
However, Linux distributions and any similarly significant 
Open Source organizations may reserve 2 tables, possibly 3 
with an explanation why you need them.  We have already been 
talking with Ubuntu and Fedora about their tables.

Recommendations will be posted about how to set up your 
display/meeting area.  For example, an EZ-UP canopy and signs 
help visibly show something is happening at your table.

This was another item we accomplished at the Wednesday planning 
meeting at the park.  (These maps/diagrams were drawn at Table 
2H - how well can you read the map?)
