TBD.  Aahz answered a pre-requisite, that other event types 
would be OK.  I've been told that it is not difficult to sell 
the idea of hosting an event to a business.  A host gets an 
opportunity to pitch their products and services to a captive 
audience, and gain some exposure, publicity, and recognition.  
They can also meet and recruit attendees for job openings.  To 
increase attendance, I'd encourage the host to provide food and 
beverages, which is a convenience for those who would need to 
leave straight from other commitments.

Anyway, it is good to know that there is the opportunity to do 
some kind of hands-on event within BayPiggies.  Now to get the 
wheels churning...
