Pre-registration

Instructions
Please add your name to the list if you will attend. Also, please indicate the following:
  • Put an X in the $$$ column if you need funding to attend. We have a limited budget and will work hard to fund as many people as possible. We'll use these answers to help figure out budgeting for the event. Guidelines and instructions on requesting funding for this event can be found @ FUDCon:Tempe_2011_Funding_Requests
  • Put a V in the Veg column if you would like vegetarian fare for any meals that we provide during the event. If you prefer vegan fare, please mark that column VV. We will do our best to make sure everyone is accommodated!
  • Put your T-shirt size in the Size column, so we can have an idea about what sizes to have available. (Use a W to note a women's size if needed.)
  • If you are looking to share a room, mark an X in the "Roomshare?" column.
Use the Comments section for anything else you think organizers need to know, or to offer or ask for space or rides.

Fedora means freedom — registration is free and open to everyone.
You can pre-register anonymously, but now is a great time to create a Fedora account if you don't have one! For those new to Fedora, you can register in the Fedora Account System and follow the instructions there to complete the CLA (soon to be FPCA). This process usually takes less than 5 minutes.
