Maybe we should talk about our goals for the Blockathon first. From my POV these 

  - What's a block?
  - What's Cocoon core?
  - How to implement real blocks? Consider different alternatives like
    Eclipse OSGi implementation, Pier's kernel, etc. talk about the pros and
  - Look at our code base and find ways how to do it

It was my impression too that we were aiming for a full Sunday but I think that 
many of us are not too enthusiastic about it because this would mean travelling 
on Saturday. So maybe we can find a compromise and start the blockathon on 
Sunday evening (e.g. at 6pm) and work on the first two questions.

If we are more than let's say 5 people we should try to get a seminar room in a 
hotel so that we have a flip chart and maybe a beamer. (Will anybody stay in a 
seminar hotel?)
If we are less than 5 people we don't have to prepare anything and only find a 
place (restaurant, pub, ...) where we can talk undisturbed.
