I suppose the crux of the matter is, it is hard work finding speakers 
and organising a venue. Balancing talks and social events. You have to 
be involved with the community, have to be aware of what's going on in 
the wider context of FLOSS world. It does take a surprising amount of time.

Building the relationships with potential speakers/presenters is the fun 
bit and quite rewarding =)
