As it so happens, a message showed up in my mailbox yesterday which  
mentioned the following:

I've never attended the workshops hosted by Athena and Beel Steen but I  
have seen a video of one and
it was easy to spot a number of "professionals" amongst the attendees.  
(The professionals were the ones that looked lost initially when  
confronted with working with non-storebought materials).

Quite frankly, I think that the Euro-pee'ins should look at somehow  
expanding the workshops to enable more people to attend, if for no other  
reason, to amortise the embodied energy of the trip over a broader base.

(But I'm sure that most baleheads can think of more and arguably better  
reasons for expanding the workshops. ie Satomi referred to Beel as "old  
man" in a photo she sent out on Beel's last birthday. Can't expect the old  
geezer to last forever . Eh ?  Gather in your Steen workshops while ye  
may, for tomorrow ... )
