Don't do it this way. I got stung before, when 8 out of 20 people pulled
out of an ILUG paintball exercise, and I got hit for the discrepancy
(something like 80 euro), as I arranged it.
If people want to go, maybe give them bank details via SMS or something
of an account they can pay their deposit (35 euro at least) into. Give it
back if they give more than 72 hours notice.
ILUG types are pretty lazy & unreliable. Otherwise they'd be using
unreliable software that'd need a lot of work to look after it :)
For astrology and the rest to flourish it is only necessary that those with
an IQ in double figures do nothing.
