Hi Ralph,

great! :-)

The costs will be displayed on the site this week, and you'll be able to sign up right away.
Since this is a community effort, we're trying to keep the costs for attending as low as possible.
There'll be some suggestions for hotels and their prices on the website too. We've called
a couple of them in both budget, medium and *expensive* ranges :-P

Make sure you hire a bike, too. They're cheap and will really add to your Amsterdam-experience!
:)

Please check back on www.cocoongt.org !

Hope to see you in October.

Arjé
