I wasn't there the second day when I guess this was discussed, cause on the first 
day when I where there I got the clear impression that the basement
rooms where available at no extra cost, so maybe additional rooms in
this sense are rooms in other near by buildings. Guess Tim can clarify.

Well if they have decided to start charging us a lot for stuff I guess we should 
feel no obligation to not go after separate sponsorship again to cover
these costs.

Actually the organizers seemed fine with doing the first day on Saturday, it
was Tim who preferred to start on Sunday. If we want to start on
Saturday I am sure they will let us.
