[Conlangs-Conf] Ticket prices

Yeah, that pesky thing called money.

I've decided to set the ticket price for the conference at $5-25, as
able; noone (especially volunteers or speakers) will be turned away
for lack of funds, however. (Nor would we turn away larger donations,
of course - and several people have in fact volunteered amounts up to
$100 so far...)

I am hesitant to rely too much on the ticket proceeds to directly
support the conference budget, though - since the number of people
coming (and their financial liquidity) will be rather undependable. So
I'll try to get the best conservative estimate I can, factor that into
the budget itself, and have the rest go towards the LCS account.

It's my intention that any money left over will go towards supporting
the LCS (in the event that someone appears to take it over once I'm
gone), or towards supporting any future conlangs conference. I'm not
entirely sure how I can go about doing the latter - e.g. if the LCS
becomes inactive as of next semester, how I can have a standing order
for the disbursement of its funds to non-campus groups - but I'll
figure something out.

Let me know if you have any comment on this.
