I didn't make the original monkey shirts but I got the artwork I posted an
updated design with the url. I also posted the vector art
so if someone has some design skills we could print up something better.

I have a laptop sticker design with the URL and Cloud monkey logo attached
to the events page<>. I thought we could back print
the stickers with a little description of Apache CloudStack and anything
else we think is appropriate.

It would be great to have some more people helping with the booth. If
anyone wants to help at any of the upcoming events. Let me know and I'll
do my best to get everyone show passes and Apache CloudStack shirts to
wear while staffing the booth.

I'll do a better job once we agree that these events are approved to
provide an invite to anyone who wants to participate.

Regards, Mark
