As treasurer I was going to suggest that we look for the best 
quality/price possible, and then found out that the Cedarbrook Hotel is 
ranked #2 of 126 hotels in the area on Trip Advisor, with a better price 
range than other hotels in the top 20:


I usually go for cheaper but since this one gets great ranking I won't 
object. A positive atmosphere can only result in a more productive meeting.

That being said, I believe you expect OSGeo to cover some of the travel 
expenses? Which ones? We need to set some limits, we can't have some 
people fly first class while others go through 3 or 4 connections to 
save money for the foundation.

But this isn't really my money, so if you wanted me to find a cheap alternative somewhere I probably could.
> While (B1) or (B2) would be best for me, I think (A1) or (A2) make the most sense given that some of you aren't attending the sprint and won't want the additional hassle of having to travel some distance/time away from the airport.  [and I could give a ride to IslandWood for the sprinters after the meeting]
