Meeting minutes from past years show:

  2002 [1] - 99 DemoLinux CDs & 30-40 Mandrake 8.1 CDs
             (We were only there Friday and Saturday; we ran out of
             handouts at 4pm on Saturday [2])

  2003 - Unknown (but apparently 250 Knoppix and many GNUWinII at GTC later
         that month)

  2004 - Unknown

  2005 [3] - 65 (out of 85) Knoppix discs,
             5 (out of 35) TheOpenCDs,
             45 (out of 45) The Open Source Software CDs,
             200 (out of 210) Ubuntu Live CDs and Install CDs (105 each),
             0 (out of 20) GNUWin II discs,
             5 (out of 5) PPC Linux LiveCDs
             10 (out of 10) "Writer's Software" (OSS discs LUGOD made)

Much more than 50. ;)
