Linux Night at KTEH
Saturday, March 20, 6PM - 11:45PM

Please let Mike know if you can help with "Linux Night at KTEH".

Note that sbay.org's March 1999 Pizza event is being merged with this so that sbay.org people will be helping there too.

Subject: [svlug] Linux night at KTEH this Saturday
Message-ID: <Pine.LNX.4.04.9903180420010.7070-100000@sg228.linuxcare.com>

This Saturday evening, March 20, volunteeers from SVLUG will help KTEH by
taking phone calls during their pledge drive. Here's your chance to:

*  be seen on TV, wearing your favorite Linux t-shirt! 
*  support KTEH, Channel 54, a great community asset!
*  promote SVLUG and Linux!

So far, seven people have indicated they will be there. That's great, and
I thank all of them for volunteering, but we need at least seven more. If
you can help out, please do so. Being a phone bank volunteer is easy, all
you have to is answer the phones and fill out a simple form. 

Our shift runs from 6pm on Saturday to about 11:45pm. (I'll be there at
the beginning and at the end, but unfortunately I have a conflict during
the middle part of the evening.)

Following is some information from KTEH for phone volunteers:

> Thank you for participating as KTEH phone volunteer. Please arrive
> promptly, but no earlier than your assigned time. When the entire group
> has arrived, a KTEH staff member will conduct a brief training session
> before the first on-air phone break. Phone volunteers are generally in
> the studio answering phones for about 20 minutes every half hour or so.
> In between these phone breaks you will have time to relax and enjoy
> snacks in the volunteer room. A tour of the station can also be arranged
> just let your Associate Producer know you are interested.
>
> To look your best on television, avoid wearing white or very light
> colors, and black or dark navy blue.  Solid colors and subdued prints or
> patterns look best.  Colored tees, emblazed with your group's logo, can
> also be worn and are encouraged. Otherwise, clothing appropriate for
> daytime or office is best.
