For this FUDCon we will be trying to negotiate a discount on air travel.  If you think you might be interested in attending please edit this page and let us know what city you will be flying in from.  This will help us negotiate the best rate possible.  This is not a commitment and we don't need to know who you are just where you would be coming from.
