Not really.

BayPIGgies as an organization really doesn't exist.  There are certain
people who have taken on certain responsibilities, but there's no one
person who "owns" all the infrastructure and no group of people who
collectively own anything, either.

So you're free to post your event to this list as a subscriber and any
complaints are unlikely to get much traction unless there's something
antisocial about your announcement.  Whether you can get the webmasters
to post the event is something you'll have to take up with them.

You can also post your event to other Python-related lists.  

If you want human support, you ask for volunteers.  If you want financial
support, you ask the PSF (Python Software Foundation).

If you want to slap the "BayPIGgies" label on your event, I would just
post and see if anyone objects.

Welcome to anarchy!  (With some rules, e.g. the job-posting rules. ;-)
