hi there,

This kind of discussion shouldn't be in the marketing  mailing list so I 
moved this discussion to sfd-discuss mailing list.

As Marcos said you don't need to register the event in order to prepare 
or plan for your event. A lot of teams have already set up their wiki 
page under http://wiki.softwarefreedomday.org/2011/

Please stay tuned while the registration should be open shortly end of 
this week or early next week. You may not know that the old registration 
form has a lot of bugs so Fred has been working on a new script. Since 
he is not a developer and he has very limited help, so let's give him 
sometime to make us a Free Bug-free script for this year and the years 
to come.

SFI doesn't provide any letter to any local team to call for 
sponsorship. However, I have been organizing SFD events since 2007 in 
China, I believe as an organizer, what you need is to prepare a 
sponsorship proposal and send it to different companies and 
organizations that may be interested.  The proposal can include:

    * Organizers introduction
    * What is SFD
    * Objectives of the event
    * When and where
    * target audiences and expected number
    * activities and schedule
    * potential speakers
    * estimated budget with breakdown
    * sponsorship options / package / benefits
    * contact info

Hope it helps! All the best to your SFD event!
