Chris, were I already in Minneapolis . . . well then, of course, it's a different issue entirely. But I'd still have to fly out there, pay for a hotel, probably a rental car, etc., etc., etc.
Were the SCAA conference held in Berkeley, or someplace close by, I would certainly be willing to volunteer -- schedule permitting -- or pay for admission. But the point of my post was that -- Minneapolis? No way. It's not worth the trip to me, as an amateur. Were I in the trade, however, it would be a different story.
