So exciting! I felt Leonard's presence everywhere when I was in Montreal for a day in July. I made a hasty slideshow in my phone.. crude but I will share it anyway ( after all, there is a crack in everything)

This is what I've thought from the very beginning when Jarkko said 'important Announcement'. I don't envy him in coming up with the logistics of finding a way to make sure forum members have good access to this event.

I'd like some advice on the subject of where a good place to stay might be. I'd like to go ahead and book a place just in case....

This announcement which requires a lot of “P” feels almost as torture. I am very exited and almost can’t wait for more detailed information about what is going to happen. There have already been a lot of suggestions, including some contributions from myself. But before I can try to “overcome quit some logistical and financial difficulties” more specific details are needed. For now back into the “Zen mode” and trying to be “P” and hope that Jarkko can lift the info ban asap.

We have had permission to post now only the alert (dates, city).
We would love to post all the details but can't before the official announcement is ready to be made public.
Also, the program is partly still under construction.
I'm sure all this will be worth the wait!

Will there be a block of rooms for the event?
