We can follow similar to something which I know a LUG has been 
following. When you need to spend for X, get someone or a group of 
people to directly sponsor for it. For example, if we want banners for 
the event, group few of individual sponsors together and let them manage 
the cost of meeting the requirement. In this way, we BangPypers do not 
handle cash, which is done by whoever is sponsoring for specific 
requirements. We can have venue sponsors, media sponsors, logistics 
sponsors, accommodation sponsors, etc. and let us give them due credits 
when we thank the sponsors. We only need one person to maintain a record 
of who is sponsoring for what, which can be done in the wiki itself if 
those details can be had public ;-)
