Not yet, but I think there would be enough of us California OsGeos to do 
an exhibit if booth, some gas and food was put into a marketing budget.

Space for an exhibit must be premium if they want $1000 for a 
non-profit. We'd have to bring a wall of screens to match that kind of 

A session might be cheaper, how many talks do we need for one and what 
other requirements are there. It looked like it might be limited to 
prexisting specialty groups.
