EuroPython ;-)

In fact, you know, we have already discussed about these points ;-) and 
it's my vision.

But I think we have an other issue, we don't want to create a group of a 
city, but of a country and in this case, we have to organise some events 
in each big city, 

For example, for the talks, workshops: We need to organise the events in 
these cities: Brussels, Charleroi, Antwerpen, Hasselt, Arlon, Namur, 
Liege, Mons, etc... because without that, we can't reach everybody.

For example, from Charleroi, I can go to Mons, Namur, Brussels and why 
not to Liege, but Antwerpen is really far away from Charleroi. In 
function of the targeted city and the hour of the meetup, I can try to 
take my car and travel to the location of the conference/talks, but 
maybe it's not the case of each of us.
