We've been saying having the AGM is Oxford would be good because it would benefit the bid - perhaps we should be more optimistic: If the bid is successful then it would be good to have the January 2010 AGM in Oxford because it would benefit the conference. If Wikimania is going to be held in Oxford, we will need to make several trips to visit venues and accommodation and whatever else beforehand in order to get everything planned and prepared, the AGM would be a good opportunity for that. From that point of view, it might be good to go somewhere else this year so we have the option of going to Oxford next year. _______________________________________________ Wikimedia UK mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_UK http://mail.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediauk-l
