One thing I don't think has been mentioned yet is that the price now includes
the Penguin Dinner at all levels.  Previously it was only included at
Professional level, but most people bought a ticket anyway.  This way it saves
a step for most people's requirements - optimise for the common case.  This is
around $60 usually and this pretty much accounts for the increase for
Concession and Hobbyist levels.  I don't know what the Professionals get extra
- - a warm glow of helping fund LCA and LA, perhaps?

Have fun,
