Just a little bit of info here. The VCC put on the Henry Barber slideshow and talk when he was out here last. Can't remember how much we charged, but the money from the ticket sales went to Henry. The VCC paid for all the costs of hall and equipment hire. We did it in a church hall in Hawthorn. Again don't remember how much this was but it wasn't just a couple hundred bucks. If this had been added onto the ticket sales with what Henry required, it would have jumped up the price a fair bit.
