I suggest that, before such an event, we should have pdmtl#7 at the SAT in
November and it ought to be bigger and better than pdmtl#3. It could be a
whole day. I mean even more so than pdmtl#3 ;-)

I say pdmtl#7 because I think that pdmtl#6 will be this month and will not
look like a conference but more like a post-flight trauma support group
;-) Which could be combined with actual planning. I would like that some
people would get involved in the local user group first before anyone
jumps to the regional/national level.

pdmtl#6 would be 3-4 hours long, as usual, and I'd expect an attendance of
maybe 10-15 people, including people who want to get involved in the local
pd community, because that's the kind of topic I want to discuss. I would
like to have Zack and Monique show up, for example, and anyone who feels
like doing something.

besides, I don't know why I always write in English because once we get to
the actual meetings I always talk in French :-}
