As I have said, I can probably get that bigger space. However - it is a
gym. That could be good, or bad, probably depending upon the target
audience.

If the target audience is truly community based (home users, save money)
it would probably be free.

If the target audience is business based, there would be a fee, I'm
guessing < $200 - I could inquire.

If there is vendor sponsorship, I expect costs would be easily covered.

No doubt a university spot (auditorium) could be booked if a more
professional / business based venue is desired.

Not to take away from SJK, merely to say more than one venue is available,
and perhaps to spread the load.

Have we stepped here to a size of involving other local (small business?)
groups? kwlug, Working Centre, others?

VoIP not just as cost savings, but business driver?
