Hello David!

Thank you very much for your announcement!

Because for many people it means arranging transport and housing, can you
say how certain these plans are? For instance, I see no announcement on
c-base website anywhere about this.

I know organizing is a super tough thing, just want to make sure there is
no misunderstanding and this announcement
should be considered a formal invitation to the event.
