- - The booth banner is printed on cloth and is in good condition for use at future Conventions. When rolled up it can be mailed to wherever it is required.
- The stock of pins was brought back to the UK. Joe Smedley drew our attention to the fact that the advert for a pin on the website / newsletter no longer worked and this needs to be corrected. Steve has a small supply of pins but when those are gone I will look after mailing out any pins bought online.
- Instead of brochures and handouts I took business cards with the ICUFR details on one side and my details on the other. These went well and I noticed that ROSNF next door also used cards as handouts.
- I won't be going to Bangkok but could be interested in Portugal in 2013. If we are to have a presence at the next Convention it would be appreciated if members going to Bangkok could let me know as soon as possible.
The reduced requirements for staffing the booths eased the burden on myself and Dave. We were not required to staff the booth in the morning, and were allowed to leave the booth unattended in order to attend plenary sessions (so I attended the opening, closing and Bill Gates sessions). We covered from the end of the morning plenaries through the afternoons to around 5 pm and parts of some mornings. It would have been more fun with a bunch of members around the booth but I'm not sure we would have signed up many more members. Most people who were interested visited all three computer booths (ROTI/ICUFR/ROSNF) in turn and we probably signed up most of those who were interested in us. I do think it was useful for the three computer fellowships to be next to each other and promoted fellowship between us.
