Thanks for all these details

One small change I've made: there is now a table on the Reimbursements
page[1] with convenient mailto links, they try to create messages with
the correct recipient, CCs and subject lines for each type of request.
Maybe people can improve them to add a body template too.

If people like this idea, maybe the table can move to the top of the page.

People can create more bespoke mailto URIs and embed them in pages for
individual events too.

If anybody wants to beta test these links, you could try making a
request to come to the Tirana[2] BSP next weekend.  It could be a great
place to thaw out after the negative temperatures in Europe this week.
