Props to our own Amber Doctor for creating a webapp to collect venue
details for events.

It's a web2py app, so props to Massimo Di Pierro as well.

Code: https://github.com/amberdoctor/chipy_venue_questionnaire
Site: http://chipyvenue.pythonanywhere.com/

That is the important part - most of you can stop reading now.

omg answers, and loading doc!   That makes me happy.

now the sad:

There are no answers for PA system.  Which is less helpful than there
being "no" answers.
There is also (will email) answers, but I have not received the email.

but back to good news (sorry for it being late.. being early caught me
off guard)

send them http://chipyvenue.pythonanywhere.com/

it is simplistic by design.  I expect to collect at most 12 rows per
year, so it is simply
1. create account
2. use your account to edit your row as many times as needed.

Adam filled it out last month - that was our RC test, it worked!
