Hello all,
Life has turned to be quite busy so unfortunately I haven't got many things ready and I'm a bit tired at this stage. As I've let some of you know I'm away in Spain from the 9th of June to the 7th of July, so I'm afraid you won't be hearing from me till then.

I still didn't get any sponsors but I'm trying my best. It'll all happen on friday and then when I'm back if we need any more.
Thanks a million to all of ye and enjoy the rest of the month!

So… finally here I am.

I have had a bit of a ‘magical’ weekend and also been quite busy at work so that’s why I haven’t been able to post anything here yet about our meeting on Tuesday. My most sincere apologies.

In all fairness, there is not much I can see apart from the fact that the meeting was great in terms of seeing people’s faces and been hyped about this whole thing. There are about 12 of us right now and in the next few hours you will have another provisional and more serious timetable and I will put you all to work! Ha! What did you think…? That I wasn’t going to?

There were quite interesting suggestions coming from the meeting: a human chess – amongst them – and possibly a wizard puppet workshop. I came out with a great feeling of working together with a lot of people. Thanks again for everything to all who came and also to all that didn’t but would have liked to ;-)

I’ll be sending you the provisional timetable and the tasks I would like you to do later on today.

Keep me posted if your availability changes.
