So did I...

<insert tone="paternalistic">
After organizing the GT for three years, at first it felt like giving 
my baby away when I started polling the list if anyone else was willing 
to volunteer to take over the drudgeries of sorting out the events' 
logistics and administration. However, the GT had the momentum to start 
travelling, and you're a bad father if you keep your kids at home for 
reasons of sheer protectiveness.

So I was happy when Arjé volunteered, and honestly, every expectation I 
had was easily surpassed by him and Sandra. Together, they were an ace 
crew who did a tremendous job this year. So thanks - a lot - for 
nursing the baby, and who knows where (or: if) it will travel next 
year. I just hope to see it back one more time in Ghent again before it 
finally grows up and decides to quit its father's place. ;)

Now, the only downside of not organizing the GT is the fact one tends 
to party harder - and the ensuing side effects of that. Let me grab 
another cup of coffee... :)
