Parking barcamp mke 8

we need to find out if 50 people would be willing to pay 5 bucks for parking all day. if some how we can get emails to current members, and also add an option when regiered would at least tell if if its feesable to order parking passes or not.

If not we need to figgure out what we are going to do for parking.... park and ride? or some other way to get people in and out.

Press Release for BarCampMke8

Hey all,

A friend of mine, Jared Schritz, wrote a press release that I reviewed that I'm interested in circulating this week. This is largely edited from previous press releases we've used with some removals and additions. I'll copy it here for people to look over. Let me know if you have anything you want edited, etc! Also I currently have Tim as the contact point for the press release. Is that ok Tim or should I change that to another volunteer? :)

Food sponsors

Hey all,

I remember someone saying something about successfully getting a food sponsor for the dinner period for the next BarCamp. Does anyone remember this? Just trying to get the food issues organized as well. My memory is telling me that there was a basic breakfast available in the past (coffee, doughnuts), some lunch, and some dinner. I don't know if we'll be able to hit all three this year, but being able to do any of the three I think would be good.
