You are telling all of us this is the event of a lifetime and that we HAVE to make it. I can speak on behalf of myself as well as many others that we are broke poor uni/college kids pickin dimes off the sidewalk just to buy KD to get by day to day. I have no idea how your budget is doing for this festival, but I think it would a great idea to come up with a contest for members to participate in and the winners could score a trip? Im really just thinking aloud, members, mods, admins please share your thoughts as well.
Also.. SG or SD.. i posted in SG just for more views, place there where ever it belongs.
For most NSers the real cost is in the plane tickets and that's something NS can't give away for free and I odn't think most people here would be willing to pay 500$+ to fly across the continent because because they won 100$ tickets.
