It will be the first weekend of August in 201...

Re: International Small Scales Meet - Montreal 2017

I knew there was something wrong in 2000, when the tender kept falling into the gaps... (and in case you are humor deficient, that's with a giant :D ) Anyone who is contemplating, I can recommend Montreal, as they seemed a right friendly bunch of people when I was last there.

The website is still down after four or five months? Time for a new website! David And it is born tonight.
