Very good. Did you mail them yet? Joke, Bruce. I know you're busy with
TitanCon. As for the rest of you...
There's an active thread on Planning which might muster some
enthusiasm on the objectives of Barcamp. If it fires you up, we'd
appreciate it if you talk to your employers and colleagues about
sponsoring Barcamp. Word of mouth can do wonders.
At this stage, it's a priority. There are emergency planning chats
over at http://www.irishcomicnews.com
during the weekend.
I consider myself a rookie when it comes to funding. I dropped a line
to the man at Reads/Reids Belfast and the manager of the Easons in
which it's located.
I've uploaded the letter at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5470073/Sample%20Barcamp%20Sponsorship%20Letter.doc
if you wish to use this as a template, please remember to edit it.
Has anyone any advice to give?
Some barcamps have approached sponsors with tiered funding. Structure
might be in order here.
