It's the tight pre-planning timeline of this one that's made it feel  
a bit rushed, but I think there is still some good time to rustle up  
further contributions - just note that the price for commercial booth  
is 2x as much as non-profit.  Alex updated me earlier and expects to  
get some funds from his university to help fund flyers and DVDs - so  
some things are already starting to move.

Costs aside, it's the volunteer commitments that always worry me, so  
it's good to see things on that front are also moving.  Alex helped  
run an event earlier in the year that turn out well too.
