***Bid Deadline: Tuesday October 07, 2008*** I am going to make this a very transparent process. We need a host for the next Rare Festival since DVI/Aspen does not play anymore. The next one was supposed to be on Europa but it does not have to be the case. Basically, I am looking for people who are really interested in hosting and then proposing some sort of a bid for it. The result being the best bid on paper will win the right to host the next festival! Something like how the Olympics work . The bid can be just a rough plan on dates, the location, people on your shard that are going to help you with it, and the type of activities/mini-events would you be able to host. I encourage people to talk with other collectors on your shard to see if you can come up with a collaboration as it can be a bit of work to host a nice festival. You can rope in local auction services, etc. to help you with different things. I would of course help any of the hosts and so would other people if required. This is assuming there are lot of people interested in hosting - if no strong interest is shown then I can host it on Atlantic! Would save me transferring heh What do you guys think?
