could you please specify "some" (as in "how many", what tasks
those people will have (which can not be done by already
registered participants) and who they are?
We have a hotel this time and in .br we hardly needed *me* for
help, since the hotel did most of the work. so i am not in favour
to plan for over-capacities when we wont need our own people,
I am not in favour of providing rooms for late registrants who
were not interested enough to book early when we turn away
foreiners who might (or might not have) tried.
