That is why I suggested two events. Although the idea of a "Southern
Festival" (substitute the name we will come up with for southern) is
great, I think the logistics would be too much, and it would force some
people to not participate in some of the event activities. Also, the idea
of having a site which would allow ALL of the things to happen the way
they should be able to happen is a bit much.  

There needs to be a lot more discussion on this, especially with the
folks NOT on the list. We are all going like gangbusters with ideas,
which is great, but we must remember that the vast majority of the
populace in the region are not on this list. 

Let's hold up on all of the volunteering to run the various aspects of
the event(s) until we find out if the SR wants to do this. Then we can
try to get a calendar date, then find a place to do it, after we figure
out if we want one or two events.

(BTW, all of the "champions" should have a year long term.)
