I've read the brochure and it sounds nice. But the question is, in
which town it should be, I mean, it makes to me not so much sense, to
have there "Rifferswil" or "Regensdorf" (you meant them as examples,
right?). And afaik it will take a day longer anyway, whether the
domicile is in Bern/Basle/Zurich/Zurich-Mulligen. And by the way:
Would the place where the "Feste Adresse" is then be mentioned in the
bylaws? I mean, I'm not so sure, whether we should have "The seat is
in Zurich-Mülligen" in the first article of the bylaws... So we anyway
need to decide on a town now.
But thanks for the link, this is definitely better than a post box.
