Hello Dona,

The NorthWest LinuxFest would be a very strong venue for our message.

Non-profit tables are free, but do need to be reserved in advance. If
you feel more likely then not I will go ahead and take care of doing
just that. It doesn't need to happen right now, but I see that the list
of sponsors is filling up quickly.

I don't think there is anyway that the group can help defray the cost of
your attending, to be frank.

What we can do is supply material:

1 LibreOffice Banner or Poster

This might be a good place to share our LibO paper airplane handouts.

Right now they are still in a draft form, but I or others should be able to finalize them before 
the event begins. The current version is here, but I do have an update planned for the next few

I have also a prototype going. It is constructed to teach people about the meaning of LibreOffice. Give it a try.


Sent to Ben:

I worked with the plane and after playing around with the design I ended up with a "learn about LO as you build and get involved" plane design. I uploaded the design here: and the construction directions are as follows (I borrowed some of the wording from your directions):


Printed paper plane page should face down in front of you before following the instructions:

1. Fold the page toward yourself along its long axis, shown as line 1. Flatten the paper again, to leave a crease. 2. Fold the top corners to the center line crease you just created. (Lines 2a and 2b.) 3. Fold the now-triangular top section of the page toward yourself along line 3.
4. Fold toward yourself along lines 4a and 4b.
5. Fold its triangular nose back toward the far side of the paper along line 5. (Line 5 is on the paper behind the piece you will fold–use its edges to determine where you’ll fold the triangular nose.) Tuck the flaps created by lines 4a and 4b under the triangular nose formed by line 5.
6. Fold the far side into triangles along lines 6a and 6b.
7. Fold both sides of the paper plane at the center line 1.
7. Fold away from yourself along lines 7a and 7b.
8. Fold toward yourself along lines 8a and 8b to form triangular stabilizers. 9. To launch your new plane, hold it from the back and push gently forward while pointed very slightly down.
