I was talking with a client of mine that is an event planner.  We started
talking about the LoCo, and a few ideas.  Without making this email too
long, a few thoughts came up to email out to everyone.

One was the right location for the event.  Where do we usually do something
like the Exploration?  Is there a standard place for ones in the past?

Another was what is the audience we're trying to reach?  He suggested that
knowing that would help in multiple influences for location and PR.

Last thought was date.  The holidays will make things busy for people and he
wasn't sure people wouldn't be busy with visiting or holiday shopping.  If
we wait till April or May, we'll have plenty of time.  Anyone have thoughts?
