Yeah, exactly, I might run into the same thing.  In the past few years I've taken vacation for c4lc and gone on my own dime... and it can be quite pricey for a US federal employee to fly outside the country (see "Fly America Act") so I don't do it often.  Seriously, you don't want to know how bad it can be.

I could probably take time off again and cobble together a train ride (empire builder!) and a rental car in seattle and do it all on the cheap, which is how I got to Access '03 in Vancouver, but, yeah, none of you care about my problems. :)

It's good to be able to draw in students and people who are interested but not directly supported or who might choose to go on their own dime.  These past two years the conf hotel rate has crept up some, with a good block rate but still well over $100/night.  Vancouver's a more expensive town than any we've been in before, so I'd worry we'd be shutting some people out.  I think there's been some kind of lower cost hotel or hostel option in every town, and surely there would be in Vancouver, but in a bigger town that means people are spread out more and then my concern (b) gets amplified, too.
