[vox] LUGOD sponsorship of Atari Party 2011?

The last two years, LUGOD has helped a small event that I run as
an individual, called "Atari Party."  With help from a handful of others,
I set up a collection of classic Atari computers & video game systems,
and let the public come play on them, and learn about them.  (In 2009,
we had some guest speakers; in 2010, I screened the film 'Once Upon Atari,'
which was a set of interviews with programmers who worked at Atari in the
late 70s and early 80s.)

LUGOD's sponsorship was basically allowing me to use the club's projector
during the event.  (Last year it was used for some games, as well as
the movie mentioned above, plus a screening of the original 'Tron'!)

This year, I hope to hold the event at the Blanchard Room at the public
library (like we did in 2009).  This venue _does_ now include its own
projector, and _hopefully_ by May (the target date for my event), the
public will be able to access the fancy new AV system they have installed.

However, in case the library's projector is still inaccessible, a back-up
would be nice.  (I'm hoping to screen one or two films again this year.)
Additionally, if the projector IS available, the Blanchard room now has
a separate conference room attached, which I think would be good for
screening the documentary ('Once Upon Atari'), and/or for some of the
less kid-friendly games (e.g., 'Alien vs. Predator', which is basically
an FPS... but one of the first for game consoles, and quite famous... so it
has historical importance.)

So... would LUGOD be willing to sponsor me again, by letting me borrow
the projector for this event?  More info here:

(As with the previous years, I'll advertise LUGOD as a sponsor on the
website, and at the event.)

Thanks in advance for feedback!
