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.
