Subject: Austin PostgreSQL Users Group (AustinPUG) + Open Source Bridge
Hi!

I'm working to organize Open Source Bridge, the third annual conference for open source citizens. It's happening June 21–24, 2011 in downtown Portland, Oregon.

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Open Source Bridge is a volunteer-run conference that connects people across technologies, projects and interests. We would love to have members of the Austin PostgreSQL community involved as speakers and participants.

The conference features presentations on a wide range of topics, from specific open source technologies to common experiences and shared concerns. There's also a full day of unconference sessions and a 24-hour hacker lounge for all of your collaboration needs.

We’d be delighted if you would mention Open Source Bridge at your user group meetings and get us in touch with other groups in your community who might be interested in participating. We've provided a sample email below that you can customize and send to mailing lists.

Our call for proposals is open through March 31st. This date is approaching quickly, so please pass this information on as soon as possible.

USER GROUP DISCOUNT

We'd like to offer a discounted registration rate of $200 to all of your members if they use the discount code "osbugluv" at registration. That’s $25 off the Early Bird rate, and $100 off our regular registration!

CONFERENCE PASS RAFFLE

We're also offering a free conference pass for you to raffle off to a member of your group!

We’ve found that these raffles work best when you:

1) Let all of your members know about the conference, dates, and URL: http://opensourcebridge.org/
2) Allow anyone in the group to sign up for the raffle.
3) Draw the winner at random, preferably at a public meeting.

When you have selected a winner, email usergroups@opensourcebridge.org, CC the winner, and we’ll register them for you.

Thank You!
