Josh,

Thanks!  Glad to know that's there for the next time we do a special event.

$12,000 per year? That's quite a bit.  I have some suggestions on what
this could be spent on:

a) meetup.com memberships for any PUG which wants them, since we don't
have another solution for calendaring/RSVPs.

b) PUG "getting started" money which pays for food etc. for new PUGs.
In general, I think your emphasis should be on supporting new/struggling
PUGs rather than well-established ones like SFPUG which can look after
themselves.

c) Special events, like once-a-year PGDays.
