I agree on deciding and booking as early as possible to get the cheapest 
possible flights. But we should probably wait for a formal board motion 
to make everything official before booking anything.

(BTW, you're lucky to have direct flights from UK. In my case, I'm 
closer in theory but in practice whether I leave from Quebec City or 
directly from the local airport at home, it's 2 connections (3 flight 
segments) and the price is the same or higher than yours.)

It's the first time we setup a F2F like this, but I believe MPG's idea 
was that hotel would be covered.

We'll probably need a motion of the board that will make this clear as well.
