It's worth pointing out that Marc Andre has been involved since the
beginning, weathered many a storm and yet has always been adaptable,
unflappable and affable. That he always couches things from "the team"
is also testament to his community oriented leadership.

Also, this photo
appears to prove that he doesn't age either.

Is organising EuroPython the secret to eternal youthful looks..? :-P

I'm not sure who else from the original crew are still involved, but
here's saluting you Marc Andre. I hope to be able to buy you a beer and
toast your good health sometime very soon.

Big hugs and huge appreciation to you and all the EuroPython volunteers
over the years.
