Re: [BFPG] April BFPG meetup

When we enquired we got back the attached (assuming the meetup mailing list passes it on!) brochure and were told that we qualified for the community rate, which costs us $500 for a < 4 hour event that doesn't involve alcohol. I have the impression that there is a 2 hour rate as well, I just can't find it on the brochure.

They do occasionally offer in kind sponsorship of the venue but we got the impression that it was rare and that we were unlikely to qualify as a group. Admittedly, we have not make an application for sponsorship to know this for sure as we were holding out for a venue in the city if possible. 



It may well have been completely free at some point, but it doesn't appear to be anymore. :)

Cheers,
Ben

If you're like me, and you want to attend, but didn't get your RSVP in early enough, please add yourself to the waiting list. There will inevitably be people who can't make it after all, so there's a good chance you'll be bumped up the list.
