  * 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 at 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:

  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!

  When signing up for your tickets online, why not tick the
  box to hear a little more from us, or just send an email to
  opentech-info-subscribe at lists.ukuug.org . Your address will 
  only be used to contact you about OpenTech and will not be
  passed onto third parties.
