GNHLUG tries to have a booth at Hosstraders and do the Linux evangelism thing. We spead the word about Linux in general and GNHLUG in particular. We also have CDs/DVDs with recent Linux software (generally burned to order), which we sell for a buck per disc.

BenScott and MadDog are the current major coordinators for this, but quite a few others help out, and the help is needed. Just manning the booth and answering questions helps a lot. In the past, EdLawson has sometimes managed to bring a Linux-based ham demo, which really rocked.
