[Yapc-na-organizers] Tasks: Food/beverage/hospitality

Over the weekend I noticed in UH's food/beverage policy that you will be allowed to bring in 'potluck' type items.  This can be executed on much later, but you guys might want to form a hospitality committee.  You or your significant others could prepare some home cooked meals (BBQ, <hint, hint>  ;-) ) which might help to make for a lower-cost experience for some attendees.  We could set up tables in the backs of some of the rooms.  Alternatively, the policy allows you to bring in pre-packaged store bought items, and soft drinks/water (as long as they are "coke" products.  That could be an easy way of keeping the cost of snacks down.  Might need refrigeration from AM until around noon, but UH might be able to provide such.  Not sure about cleanup or whether this would be too much work, but I just wanted to put the idea out there for you to consider.  This team could probably be formed late, and filled by people who hadn't volunteered yet, but who will want to show hospitality.  Maybe some spouses and/or kids could help too.

My previous notes:
    You are allowed to bring in pre-packaged and home/cooked putluck type meals
    Maybe you can have some locals cook some stuff to be distributed in various rooms?
    (UH requires that Coke products be used (including bottled water)
