Many thanks for all of the replies - I think we have a quorum and a consensus that we go for a Saturday in May rather than April. Like other posters, I am also really taken with Rafal's experience at the John Sexton workshop and I think that we would like to hear more, and indeed see any new prints, if we are not presuming too much on Rafal.
I will suggest May 12th in the DCC. I thought the morning start time worked for the November meet, but those traveling longer distances may prefer a 2.30pm - 5pm timeframe?
Does 12 May look like a suitable date - any preferences for time?
