Who: Bruce Momjian & Josh Berkus

Dinner/Party: Buca Di Beppo, 1 block from Moscone Center, 7:30PM. Wine & garlicky food.

You MUST RSVP if going to dinner, and bring $25 in cash in case we don't have sponsorship for the dinner.

We will be in the .ORG pavillion as usual, but this year we'll be sharing our booth with some members of the Perl community so it will be a joint PostgreSQL/Perl booth. The booth will be for 3 days, from Tuesday August 7 to Thursday August 9th. We will also need load-in help on Sunday.

Volunteers will be given a PostgreSQL t-shirt and asked to wear it, except for the Perlmongers who can wear Perl t-shirts. I will also buy lunch for any volunteers who stay all day.
