My suggestion:

1. Try to get something accepted by the event anyway.  The Fedora name is 
a big name.  They might make an exception.

2. Put this event on the Event Page:

This way, other regional ambassadors have a better chance of knowing about 

3. If you can't get any formal recognition at the event, just show up and 
set up a cheap card table and a chair, print a Fedora sign, and make 50 
CDs and lots and lots of collateral.  What are they going to do, throw you 
out?  :)

Good luck.  Let us know how it goes.
