Thanks for that Lorenzo and Arnulf! Indeed, mark your calendars
because I've booked the week of 15 21st June 2009 in Bolsena.
I would be happy to work with people to try to get sponsorship lined
up for the event this year. I think last year's event was extremely
economical from the point of view of participating (ignoring travel
cost!). The total cost was well under 500 Euro for the full 7 days
with full boarding.
It will be the same next year, except that for reasons of
simplification the price will be 500 Euro to participate (again, full
boarding and a dinner in a special restaurant :-) ). The single
payment is instead of splitting things up in detail (if you're
participating 3 or 7 days, eating all nights, or just 2, etc...). We
have space for about 30 people in total, but more precise details will
follow on the WIKI later. Start getting organized :-) First come,
Suggestions and help to find sponsors are very welcome.
