Re: Thought experiment

I'm willing to help with this if it's the Aug 25-26 weekend.  I'd prefer that it did have a ringing course. I'm not willing to do it unless other people also help, so pipe up now!

    John B asked once why it has been so long since Boston hosted an AGM. I have been thinking about it, and wonder whether there would be any support for a very stripped-down weekend similar to the one in 2008 that was a celebration of the 25 years since the rehanging at Old North. What if we offere just a weekend, not a ourse. Only the usual ringing times at ON. Afternoon ringing each day at the Advent, lots of handbell opportunities. Working around AA so that we could have a dinner of potluck food in Moseley Hall.  Those of us who have space could host people, otherwise we'd suggest Air b n b. No registration fee? No  swag. No packets. My point here is to see if we can make it cost almost nothing, to make up for the fact that we are sort of at a corner of our ringing continent, so transportation is an expensive nuisance.
  Thoughts? If a site is needed for next year's AGM, should I offer this idea?
