Dear Conference Committee, dear Maria as representant of the Sevilla
team (SLOC)!

I think you all have seen, that Vasile, the CRO of the recently finished
board votings had a lot TODO's around the voting procedure. Many of
these time consuming issues couldn't be foreseen due to all the
happenings around the voting period.

The point is, that Vasile is also foreseen as chair of the Bucharest
team for Rfp 2019 (BLOC). Having noticed all this, I asked Vasile, if he
would agree me proposing to extent the proposal period for Rfp 2019 by
one week. This to give especially him some more time to prepare the
proposal without running into a hastle. Of course provided that SLOC agrees!

I think it's only fair and we should give BLOC the chance to make a good
proposal for a fair competition between SLOC and BLOC. In general that
would mean, that all the dates mentioned on [1] would slip back a week,
but we still would be able to present the location for 2019 by Christmas
(if the board would find a date for their final decision). We also could
shorten the question period by a few days, so the board has more options.

So first I'd like to ask you Maria, as representant of SLOC, what your
thoughts on this are? Can we agree on this proposal?

If SLOC agrees, I'd like to ask the voting members of CC for their
statement (Just a question, but do we have to call for a vote, if SLOC

I wish you all a nice weekend!
