What is the usual geographic distribution of previous organising teams?
I'm assuming it was a majority of local people in each case.

I'm guessing many local areas may have trouble finding more half a dozen
people with sufficient free time.  Surely not all the organising team would
need to be local?  Would boosting the team with members from other parts of
the country help (so the organising team is eg. ~6 local, and ~6 interstate
people) help - or is it a case of too many cooks?
