There are 3 main categories of things that need to be done, plus someone
to coordinate everyone, ensure that everything is actually completed,
and break symmetry to avoid indecision
- dealing with the venue
One committed person for each of these, plus a legion of volunteers
should be sufficient.

I see two main possibilities:
- ubc point grey campus
(I'm eliminating sfu burnaby and bcit burnaby because they are sort of
crap locations -- nothing interesting nearby (restaurants,
entertainment) and hard to get to without a car.)
downtown has many possible venues
- a school
-- bcit is promising (max capacity 300)
-- sfu downtown has max cap 250, thinking this is too small
-- ubc downtown has max cap 240
-- need to call vcc
- library is promising (max cap 300)
- a theatre
-- pacific cinematheque is too small
-- need to call new film centre
- a venue hall
-- need to call commodore, concern: internet
-- need to call canada place, plaza of nations
- a museum
-- planetarium is too small and too awkward for our numbers
-- need to call science world, likely same issue
- a hotel (very likely too expensive)
We need to price each possibility out in detail before we can decide.
