There will be some backing from VEKN. They are working on some sort of 'gadget' to offer all attendants. But that's not really a grand prize to offer the winner. I still have some product myself and I do believe Dennis willing to help out too.

I think a draft would be great, but I fear we won't be able to get the product together to pull this of. How many boosters would we need per attendant?

Thanks Emiliano. Jonathan was also on the lookout for a venue in Bxl, so I'll talk to him at the start of next week. If he didn't find anything, we can confirm outpost. I'll give you a call on Wednesday or so.

He checked the weekend of 24-25 February and there are no other major events planned: we could have the whole place for us on the Sunday (so rearranging the tables "Vampire-style" including in the main part of the shop), and have our usual arrangements on the Saturday where we expect lower attendance. Let me know if there are alternative possibilities or, if not, if I can confirm with him.
