Log:	First Draft of the sprint announcement

	needs adding -- what we want to do at the sprint and whether it is
	at my house or at OE. Note that I am fine with you eating and
	hacking at my house, it is the sleeping over that is not working due
	to the lack of showers. I suppose it is possible that somebody will
	want to begin work on the bathroom building that week, in which case
	we would have to have the sprint at OE on the grounds of it being
	too noisy and dirty at our place, but I think the chances of this is
	small.

+PyPy G&#65533;teborg Post-Hallowe'en Sprint Nov 2nd - Nov 9th
+=========================================================
+
+The next PyPy sprint will be in Gothenburg, Sweden. It is a public sprint, 
+suitable for newcomers.  We'll focus on making a public kick off for
+both the numpy/pypy integration project and the py3k interpreter project,
+as well as whatever interests the Sprint attendees.
+
+Topics and goals
+----------------
+
+The main goal is to XXX
+
+Other topics:
+
+- Helping people get their code running with PyPy
+
+- maybe work on FSCon talk
+
+- state of the STM Vinnova project (We most likely, but not for certain will
+  know whether or not we are approved by this date.)
+
+Other Useful dates
+------------------
+GothPyCon_ - Saturday Oct 29.

+Location

+
+XXX I am fine with having the sprint here.  Or we could have it at OE.
+    It's the 'sleeping at my house' part that isn't working.
+
+The sprint will be held in the apartment of Laura Creighton and Jacob Hall&#65533;n
+which is at G&#65533;tabergsgatan 22 in Gothenburg, Sweden.  Here is a map_.  This is
+in central Gothenburg.  It is between the tram_ stops of Vasaplatsen and 
+Valand, (a distance of 4 blocks) where many lines call -- the 2, 3, 4, 5,
+7, 10 and 13.

+
+Probably cheapest and not too far away is to book accomodation at `SGS
+Veckobostader`_. The  `Elite Park Avenyn Hotel`_ is a luxury hotel just a 
+few blocks away. There are scores of hotels a short walk away from the
+sprint location, suitable for every budget, desire for luxury, and desire
+for the unusual.  You could, for instance, stay on a `boat`_.  Options are
+too numerous to go into here. Just ask in the mailing list or on the blog.

+
+Hours will be
+from 10:00 until people have had enough.  It's a good idea to arrive a
+day before the sprint starts and leave a day later.  In the middle of
+the sprint there usually is a break day and it's usually ok to take
+half-days off if you feel like it.
+
+
+Good to Know
+------------
+
+Sweden is not part of the Euro zone. One SEK (krona in singular, kronor
+in plural) is roughly 1/10th of a Euro (9.36 SEK to 1 Euro).
+
+The venue is central in Gothenburg.  There is a large selection of
+places to get food nearby, from edible-and-cheap to outstanding.  We
+often cook meals together, so let us know if you have any food allergies,
+dislikes, or special requirements.
+
+Sweden uses the same kind of plugs as Germany. 230V AC.
+
+
+Getting Here
+------------
+If are coming train, you will arrive at the `Central Station`_.  It is
+about 12 blocks to the site from there, or you can take a tram_. 
+
+There are two airports which are local to G&#65533;teborg, `Landvetter`_ (the main
+one) and `Gothenburg City Airport`_ (where some budget airlines fly).
+If you arrive at `Landvetter`_  the airport bus stops right downtown at
+`Elite Park Avenyn Hotel`_ which is the second stop, 4 blocks from the
+Sprint site, as well as the end of the line, which is the `Central Station`_.
+If you arrive at `Gothenburg City Airport`_ take the bus to the end of the
+line.  You will be at the  `Central Station`_.
+
+You can also arrive by ferry_, from either Kiel in Germany or Frederikshavn
+in Denmark.
