Conference Committee, Bidders,

Good morning (PDT). The results have been tabulated, and every member
of the committee has voted (yay).

Many thanks to both teams for bidding. Many of the members commented
on the difficulty in selecting a bid, given the quality and attention
to detail in both bids.

The voting results are

Nottingham 8
Helsinki 2

So, FOSS4G 2013 will be in Nottingham, UK.

To the Nottingham team:

- The sooner you can carve your dates into stone, the better for
promotion and planning
- Remember that you will have to submit a budget to the Board for
approval, and the "Official, Really for Reals Acceptance" of your bid
is contingent on the Board formally accepting your budget and bid.
Let's move that process forward briskly.

To the Helsinki team:

- You had a great bid and a wonderful venue and plan, I hope you'll
consider bringing your preparations and research to hosting an EU
Regional event for 2014.

Thanks again to everyone,

your 2013 RFP bid guy
