Hello Michael,

Sorry for the top-post, but your actual suggestion is a long way down. :-)

I would certainly be very interested in attending and helping with such 
an event. It sounds like a great idea.

Unfortunately I'm tied up with writing a book, which will probably take 
me through until May/June. After that I will have more spare time and 
would love to get involved. If you're heading for an August time you'll 
need to do a lot of work before then, but if you set a date beyond that 
then perhaps I can be useful.
