[Conlangs-conf] Quick funding update, and Slugly assistance

I got the reply re. the second grant I applied for - we were awarded
$100. Less than the $300 I was expecting (or the $500 cap), but it's
still something.

I'm presently expecting us to break even, +/- about $200-300. It'll
depend heavily on the couple items that are still ballparks - e.g.
food costs and ticket revenue.

Also, I talked to the meeting of SLUgS (the UG linguistics group @
Cal), and they were amenable to the idea of helping out. Not
financially, but in bodies to help run the conference day itself, and
possibly to help get discounts on food & printing costs. No
commitments yet, but it should be helpful. It'll take a bit of
planning and coordination to get everything set up in half an hour -
but I think it's doable.

(Over-optimism? :-P)
