I don't think this is a bad idea per se... but IMHO we should
concentrate on just doing a good Installfest.
I have given invites / flyers to other groups like CIACUG in the past,
but haven't seen much response from them (other than the few crossover
members we have). But I think we should keep trying.
Maybe I should "practise what I preach" and we could volunteer to do a
Linux presentation at a CIACUG meeting.
