Hello all.

Sorry for my delay answering, I got home and weather change made me stay in
bed with a terrible flu. Anyway, time to work.

I just open a small thread with some comments about the Venue requirements,
I think this is, above all, the most important things to take care of right
now. I guess that, as soon as we select a venue, we will have time and a
better opportunity  to take care properly of other matters that also will
require time and dedication.

Please, take a look to this small thread, so I can put a small invitation
letter for those venues that expressed their desire to host LGM and give
them an acceptable time-frame to fill the required information and let us
make a decision.

Thank you, good day.
