I certainly would still have kicked up a stink to get back the cost of 
travelling over 200 miles ;)
Heck - I think they should do that anyway?
The organisers had obviously decided beforehand to exclude these people so it 
WOULD have been polite to save them cost of travelling BUT they obviously 
decided simply to annoy? It certainly does not earn ESRI any 'brownie points' 
being so arrogant, but then again their lawyers have probably sown up every 
loose end in the small print so they will just have to put up with bad press :)
