Just a few days after the Maastrich conference sounds good - someone might
even want it just after.

As far as I know, the distance is not great. I'll be driving, in order to
bring my wheelchair along, and can take two passengers if need be.

Looking forward to meeting you.

There are some people, I believe, like Patric in Belfast, who are not on
this list, but ought to be alerted to the event. Could I suggest that if
anybody knows of anyone, they take the resposibily to give the alert? (And
invite those people to join the list, too ... )
