We discussed this at the Cambridge IMC meeting, and we're up for putting
some time into this and attending at least some of them.
We can do all 3 Sundays (but not the first sunday in october). (By the
way the dates below are wrong, the Sundays are actually 14th, 21st and
28th). Also note that the anarchist bookfair is on the 27th.
And we'd definitely support one of the weekends being a full weekend of
discussion, ideally a network meeting.
Also had a quick poke about online and came across
