Budget for 500.

If you wanted a more local event (as in primarily sandgropers), consider 
fitting ~200 people on a train down to the forest for four days for a 
train-cost of ~$16,000 as a kind of a technological nuevo cuisine.

Setting up enough wireless coverage might be an issue, but once done the 
Australind passengers would love us for it. (-:

Unfortunately, the Hotham Valley people were decidedly unenthusiastic 
about adding bakelite-looking RJ45s and power sockets under the tables 
in each carriage last time I discussed it with them.

Albany's another possible, very pretty and some reasonable facilities, 
although not as exciting as a forest destination... most of which have 
very limited accomodation and no large venues. If we hit the forest 
somewhere southwards, I'm sure South West Coach Lines would come to the 
party with transport.

Cheers; Leon
