You have a small sample size of attended BakeAThons. Breakfast, lunch, excursion to
a bar, t shirts, etc, are all niceties that we always do not have present.

The budget has to be power, meeting room, network bandwidth, and setup time.

The only one which might cost real money is network bandwidth. I.e., I have been to
several where that was the cost which hit the books.
