As much as we would like not to have to ask for anything at all, we do have to deal with some expenses. Therefore, we asking for a $20 contribution toward the cost of the food and libations offered on Friday and Saturday nights, if you attend these events. This keeps costs low enough that we’re one of the cheapest conferences you’ll find, while still ensuring that we can get to know one another while having plenty of food and fun. We will be collecting that money beginning first thing on Friday, so please have it ready.
