Hi all, just looking back on the email threads, in the conversation around
the cancellation of the Calgary event, there were some suggestions that the
2022 event should be held in North America, so we don't go so long without
having an event there, and also that we should offer the right of
first refusal to the Calgary team, so if they wanted to run the 2022 event
we could elect to award it to them without a competitive RFP (probably
subject to submitting some updated plans for review). At the time
the Calgary team weren't sure if they would want to do it again,
understandably due to the situation, but they didn't rule it out. I don't
know if I missed any subsequent discussion on this front.

Personally I would support first offering the Calgary team the right of
first refusal on the 2022 event. If they decide they don't want to do it,
then we need to decide whether the location for 2022 should be North
America (which means we would go 5 years between NA events, 4 years between
European events) or Europe (6 years between NA events, 3 years between
European events).
