I just checked... that is Sweet16 weekend for NCAA tournament, but games will 
not be in the area, so that is not an issue.

I'm guessing the facilities will be donated, but it'll be pretty pricey for 
attendees to stay and move about since it will be the week after spring break, 
and nothing is cheap in that area unless you are a UM student and there is no 
incremental cost to attend.

I'd like to send three people, but I'd also like to keep the cost of the trip to 
less than a MS-SQL workgroup processor license.

Perhaps a future East coast event could just take over an Embassy Suites and 
have the entire event self contained. At least in a place like that, you have a 
hot breakfast included, and free drinks from 5 to 7 or so. Sponsors can hang 
banners over the rails. It's just a matter of driving or flying in. Networking 
opportunities are multiplied, and if you get tired, you just take the elevator 
back to your room.
