Yes that would be cool enough to attract some attention,  giving away 
the latest live CD ,showing 1 clean installed server and 1 with the 
booted live CD, however I would prefer to have a bit more time to 
organize the one or the other, maybe we should skip this one and 
prepare for the next major event? I think we would need some artwork 
like posters with Fred and printed CD's some flyers with the website 
name , etc. etc. I would be prepared to finance to a reasonable limit 
like 75eur but that would be hardly enough.

However what would you think, skip this one an be better prepared for 
the next event?
Which results in the question what the next event will be big enough 
to do a "fan-stand".

Well, I'm not Dutch, but I live in Holland. If we were to have a stand 
there, I'd certainly go. I've got the tools to make artwork / flyers and 
such. Any advocacy is good advocacy IMO :).
