I think so, loads of people seem to regard the sprinting as something
you can do the day after when you wait for your plane. I think all
conference days should be advertised as such.

PyCon does it on the weekend, but that's US. My feeling is that
EuroPython has a smaller percentage of hobbyists, but that could be
because it isn't on a weekend, as well as a reason not to have it on a
weekend. :-)
