Let's at least agree, that we have to draw a line somewhere. But as said the
community has to do that and it has to be transparent.

And please keep in mind the local volunteers.

So then then question is popping up why we pick so damned expensive locations? (Haven't
looked at the budget sheet if it's available).

BTW: In London for every attendant of the networking event, there was one alcoholic welcome
drink for free. Further beer, wine costed >=5 pounds. I am not from London but it didn't seem
like a particular good deal to me we made with the host.

I liked the magicians doing card player tricks a lot though.
