Not sure if I understand. I think Navin was responding from a venue and
venue policy perspective.

What I do not understand is why (if that was implied) we would need to
decide on whether trainers get paid anytime soon? My working assumption is
that we will try to get sufficient volunteers to conduct the training. At
this moment I believe there are now 4 (counting Noufal's offer the other
day). So unless we find ourselves uncomfortably placed I think we should
continue with volunteer trainees which was unless I stand corrected also
reflected in the discussion between Ramki / BG / self mailed out to the
group as well.

Do let me know if there is something I either missed out or misunderstood.
