For XOCamp 2, it would be good to be able to repeat this fundraising for travel scholarships. There has been a proposal to divide half of all money raised equally, and half proportionally to remaining travel costs, among all attendants who claim a need and are coming from over 500 miles away. Thus if $600 were raised and divided among two people who spent $400 and $800 on tickets, they would get $350 and $550 respectively.
