      * Want to help out? *
    
      OpenTech is organised by volunteers and we are now looking
      for volunteers to help out on the day. In return for free
      early entry and our eternal gratitude, we're in need of a
      few people to show up a bit earlier and help us set the
      venue up, and a few people to help with the audio recordings.
    
      If you're interested, or have random other questions, email 
      us on opentech@ukuug.org
    
      One thing we're doing this year is giving everyone related
      to OpenTech the chance to post their projects on a page,
      and say what help they need. Offline or on, whether you're
      after tech people or just more helpers, you can ask the
      OpenTech community to help out what matters to you:
            http://ukuug.org/opentech/friends
    
    
      Final programme may be subject to alteration. OpenTech is a
      not for profit event open to everyone so please help spread
      the word online and offline. Thanks for reading!
