To be honest, after Geoff's gloom and doom, I figured they would be
politicking hard about it, but I never saw anything along those lines.
Admittedly as a non-ham attendee, I didn't have the insight into the
"behind the scenes" aspects, but I would have at least expected
grumbling in the hallways as you see happening in other conventions
when issues arise (e.g. SF fandom, gaming cons, Anime Cons, etc).
But, I heard nothing of the sort.
