Speaking for myself, nobody else:
>From: "William B. Norton" <email@example.com>
>We expect the new registration fee will increase from $150 (which covers
>the percentages of the 3 NANOG staff) to between $250 and $300 which will
>cover all catering and A/V costs. This will reduce the local host's
>financial burden substantially and return the local host role to that of
>providing local logistics support, the terminal room, and Internet
My aunt runs a catering business. *Good* weddings are $40 a plate.
Two days, $80. Average three snickers bars ($1 each) and 6 cans of
pop ($2) and you have a per-person food cost of $85. Shirt $15,
youre at $100.
This would mean, at 500 participants @ $250, the A/V cost is roughly
$125,000.00 for two days? Is ARIN running the A/V dept now? *hides*

Registration costs just went from $100 to $150, now they're going to $250?
With a 250% increase in costs over less than a year, I'd like to see where
this money goes.. or even better, costs of previous NANOGs.
Not that I don't believe it, I just wonder.
