Some info for potential longer time slots"

If you want a longer than 3 hour block of time then you normally hold a pre-conference event on Wednesday.  They can start at 9 and end by 5.  The cost is likely to be about $500 for the room including A/V and some power strips.  It does not include food.  Room holds 30-50 people.  You may charge via the registration system if you want but don't have to. Final details on these fees will not be set until the end of November.  I will note that significantly fewer people are around during Wednesday unless they are coming for an event.  I don't know if students would come due to extra costs for the hotel but local might be different.  I wanted to pass along the information I found out.

Note HFOSS has held a pre-conference meeting for the last several years.  If we want to go down this route we may want to check with them so not to conflict.

If we want a 3 hour block then it would be a workshop.  I could check if we can get the fee waived or reduced for a student oriented event.  Let me know if you want that checked out.

Thoughts on how we might like to go?
