Hi, Randy.  I personally will try to make the next general meeting --
but you should discuss SVLUG sponsorships with the elected officers, 
J. Paul Reed and Bill Ward.  You can reach just them at
officers at lists.svlug.org, or you can speak to all of SVLUG's principal
volunteers by e-mailing {webmaster at svlug.org|volunteers at lists.svlug.org} .  
(Those two go to the same place.)

My point is that sponsorship entails financial support or something
equivalent.  E.g., in the past, we added VA Linux Systems as a sponsor
of record because of Web hosting provided by that firm (if memory

My estimation is that, although everyone's delighted with Canonical, Ltd.'s
policy of furnishing free CD-ROM sets to LUGs, that alone would not be
considered to make them a sponsor.  But, really, Paul and Bill are the
people who can really speak to that.

Best Regards,
Rick M.
