  • OCLUG support of Ottawa IPv6 Summit

The Ottawa IPv6 Summit organizing committee requests that OCLUG support

 the initiative by providing working cash up to $500 to be repaid on the
 assumption that receipts are sufficient. Monies will be handled by Bart
 Trojanowski and proper records and receipts will be kept.
 The estimated revenue is 120 attendees at approx. $65 each. ($7800)
 The fixed costs are: 
    rooms less than $500.
    marketing/promotion costs: less $1000
    web site and bank charges: $300
    speaker costs: $2000 to $3000.
 The variable costs are:
    lunch: <$30/person.
 Total costs: $8400, assuming worst case costs above.
 We would not budget a deficit, and we are seeking sponsors. 
 Most (90%) of speakers will be contributing their time and travel
