Here I am forwarding this. The by-laws of our group have always been
against sponsership and I am not trying to reverse that trend. 

However in the forwardard message They do offer a $20 discount on the
licenses and if there is some way to work around it ie set up another
non-offical site or whatever that maybe more advantageous to our members
ie save 20 bucks, then maybe we should discuss it if there is a large
enough interest.

Subject: NeTraverse would like to sponsor your LUG

Dear Linux User Group Administrator,

You are receiving this email because you are listed as the contact of your
LUG at www.linux.org. We wanted to contact you about a special offer we are
making to all LUGs.

We have seen Linux grow, in large part, from the work and evangelism that
has occurred in computer user groups like yours. We would like to help
sponsor these efforts by donating software and support to your LUG, coupled
with a special member-only offer.

NeTraverse would like to offer you a free license for our Win4Lin
Workstation Edition 4.0 software (an $89.99 value) - the best way to bridge
Windows to Linux, especially for those hard to replace applications. In
addition, we would like to offer your membership a discount of $20 off the
retail price of Win4Lin Workstation Edition 4.0.

To take advantage of the member discount, we ask that you notify your
membership by email, or announce at your monthly meeting, that NeTraverse is
now sponsoring you and that members are entitled to the special benefits
described in the welcome letter.

We would like to list all sponsored LUGs on our LUG page
(http://www.netraverse.com/LUG/) and continue to make special offers to all
LUG members.  This would be done by sending you an email so you can decide
whether to include it in your normal user group communications (NeTraverse
does not want to, and will not, SPAM you with junk mail).

We are very excited about this chance to help the communities that have
helped us. If you would like to sign up for this offer please reply to this
email with the following information so we may update our records:

LUG Name
Administrative Contact Name
Administrative Contact Email

We will reply with our welcome letter and an electronic certificate with a
Win4Lin license code. You will also be informed on how to help your members
take advantage of our LUG sponsorship discounts.


Mark R. Hinkle
Vice President, NeTraverse
