I personally think too much hay is being made of this.

I'll happily chuck in a tenner for this.  If a few other generous
ScotLUGgers do the same, the question of charging at the door becomes moot.

Also, for a theoretical arrival of 10:00 on Sat 25th March and 08:45
departure on Sun 26th March, Flybe can deliver a return fare of £56.14
(cost good as of a minute ago).  Couple that with perhaps someone
putting Jono up for the night helps keep the costs down further.

That would be just 6 people stumping up a tenner to deliver ScotLUG a
special event speaker (possibly something to co-incide with an install
day or other event?).
