I agree.
On the way back to the airport (Thursday 3:30pm), one of the IOUG staff members/volunteers (with that "trade-mark'' shirt on) in the shuttle van told me that he had the CD. I did not ask him how he got one, but he told me that 'someone' from IOUG gave it to him. BTW, he was not at the Closing Ceremony, or the networking thereafter.

Personally think all attendees, regardless of plane schedules or other plans, should have the option to get a CD. April Wells
