Do we have any volunteers who'd be on these calls though?

We've had some luck with getting volunteers to sign up as track chairs, 
though we've had quite a few emails from people surprised that their 
favourite area hasn't magically happened due to a lack of volunteers. So, 
it hasn't been as promising as we'd hoped. Quite a few of the "likely 
suspects" have agreed to help with this.

We've had excellent luck with getting people to help with investigating 
hotels, site visits etc, and generally working to supply local knowledge.

My requests for help with announcements have largely fallen on deaf ears 

My request for help with sponsorship have gone no-where :(

A lot of other requests to help have gone no-where. Not meaning to pick on 
you, but I notice that you've still not supplied a description for your 
track, and you're not the only one :/

Quite a few people have explicitly said they won't be able to help out

Maybe we should turn this around:

Who is able to take on a significant role with ApacheCon Europe, who 
hasn't already signed up for a role such as track chair? And what sort of 
role might interest you?
