Thanks for the reply Lou.

If I'm reading the prices correctly even at a 50% discount, Humbug's
current booking would cost the club around $5000/yr, and we would need
to get public liability insurance.  Humbug's current income is $500/yr,
so that isn't possible for us.

The message below hints at way out - somehow becoming "affiliated with
UQ".  I don't have a clue if or how we could do that right now, so it is
going to take some time to explore.

Could you suggest anybody within ITEE that could give us some advice?
