On the subject, I talked to a friend who works for a convention services 
company.  for what we are doing, it will be worth the effort to talk face to 
face with whoever it is we are getting rates from.  I will be talking to a guy 
who has done many of these negotiations about PyCon as soon as I get some 
numbers I can run by him to get some tips for how to wheel and deal.

So far I have 600 attendees and $150 reg fee.  which may be all there is. 
hoping to hear how many/how much $ can be committed to by whoever it is that 
will be committing.
