We should get a central location on the LA site or something detailing
to potential speakers how they can organise an Australian LUG tour.

Many larger corporations, when sending someone over here for a conf or a
meeting spend a lot of money doing so. Spending an extra few bucks to
get them to a few LUGs and have a good community vibe is pocket change.

hrrm... maybe a calendar of LUG events like linmagau used to have....
