About 62, 000$ on Wikimania that last just about 1 week?

That's really huge, I think.

Upcoming chapters around the world will love to enjoy grants and funding from the WMF. Can the WMUK channel some of these lovely dollars into supporting upcoming chapters and WM groups?

If the WMUK hasn't yet finalized that amount for the bid, they I'm sure they're gonna reconsider.

I hope i'm not being nosy in this discussion. :-)

Sorry, it's undiplomatic to interfere with others budget plans - but I just
can't ignore how the future of Wikimania will look like if others will
follow UK plans to invest £40,000 only for the bid process (about 62,000$).
To be clear, that plan is still in draft, and that particular item has
received plenty of opposition.

I am in favour of spending money on bids - it is necessary if we want
to get professional quality bids. I am not in favour of spending that
kind of money on bids, though.
