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.
