[TriZPUG] Ride Share to PyCon '10

So, along the line of sharing, a bunch of WSGI people (mostly
TurboGears at this stage, but we want to integrate a bit with Zope or
Django people too) are getting together to rent this villa:
http://www.vrbo.com/255327.  It's available for the entire duration of
the conference +tutorals + sprints (check in 2/16 check out 9AM 2/26),
and we could fit a couple more people (there are 10 slots/beds total).
 The rules are:

Everyone pays the same amount, whether you stay the whole time or not
(one attendee will be sponsored though).
Organizers and sponsored attendee get first dibs on beds, every one
else is first come first served, but each gets their own bed unless a
sharing arrangement is worked out in advance.
There will be a few cars to ferry people to the Marta station/grocery
store: http://bit.ly/52MDyO
Something about an open bottle of WSGI

If you're going to be there a week or longer, it'll be a pretty good
deal, we're hoping about $5-600 per person/bed.

If you want more info, let me know.
