Aloha all,

This might be wildly impractical for most of you, but I'd be happy to  
facilitate an Org-mode conference at Keauhou Beach Resort in Kona,  
Hawaii.  I organized a conference there for 150 archaeologists a few  
years ago and the facilities were perfect for a group that size.  I  
don't remember right now the minimum number needed for the group rate,  
but something around 50 sticks in my head.

In addition to congenial meeting facilities, you will find:

1) Terrific sport fishing,
2) Magnificently restored traditional Hawaiian religious temples on  
the hotel grounds,
3) An active volcano, with lava flowing into the sea, and
4) Tours of the observatories on Mauna Kea.

If we tentatively plan for the northern hemisphere winter a year from  
now that would be sufficient lead time to set up the conference.  And  
as the days shorten and nights begin to freeze for many of you, the  
thought of a week in January or February in 27 degree Celsius sunshine  
might prove appealing.

Of course, Hawai`i Island lacks Belgian beer and for many of you it is  
halfway around the world ...

All the best,
