+         PyPy Leysin Winter Sprint (12-19th January 2008)
+..                             image:: http://www.ermina.ch/002.JPG
+XXX nice introduction
+Goals and topics of the sprint
+* Like previous winter, the main side goal is to have fun in winter
+  sports :-) We can take a couple of days off for ski; at this time of
+  year, ski days end before 4pm, which still leaves plenty of time
+  to recover (er, I mean hack).
+* the overall idea of the sprint is to continue working on making PyPy ready
+  for general use.
+XXX more tasks
+Location & Accomodation
+Leysin, Switzerland, "same place as before".  Let me refresh your
+memory: both the sprint venue and the lodging will be in a very spacious
+pair of chalets built specifically for bed & breakfast:
+http://www.ermina.ch/.  The place has a baseline ADSL Internet connexion
+(600Kb) with wireless installed.  You can of course arrange your own
+lodging anywhere (so long as you are in Leysin, you cannot be more than a
+15 minute walk away from the sprint venue), but I definitely recommend
+lodging there too -- you won't find a better view anywhere else (though you
+probably won't get much worse ones easily, either :-)
+I made pre-reservations in the Chalet, so please *confirm* quickly that
+you are coming so that we can adjust the reservations as appropriate.
+The rate so far has been 60 CHF a night all included in 2-person rooms,
+with breakfast.  There are larger rooms too (less expensive, possibly
+more available too) and the possibility to get a single room if you
+really want to.
+Please register by svn:
+  http://codespeak.net/svn/pypy/extradoc/sprintinfo/leysin-winter-2008/people.txt
+or on the pypy-sprint mailing list if you do not yet have check-in rights:
+  http://codespeak.net/mailman/listinfo/pypy-sprint
+You need a Swiss-to-(insert country here) power adapter.  There will be
+some Swiss-to-EU adapters around - bring a EU-format power strip if you
+have one.
+Exact times
+XXX is this correct?
+Officially, 12th-19th January 2008.  Both dates are flexible, you can
+arrive or leave earlier or later.  We will give introductions and
+tutorials on the 13th, in the morning if everybody is there, or in the
+afternoon otherwise.
