- For what it's worth, as Treasurer of MBS, I have sent Ralf
Quast some inquiries via e-mail regarding his plans for the
conclave. I suggested that if I didn't get some kind of
budget from him pronto, he wouldn't get reimbursed for money
spent. Basically, the only response I've gotten is that
everything is under control, I shouldn't worry about it!
The only monetary figure I've seen is that the conclave
registration will be $175. Has anyone gotten a registration
I have a feeling that Ralf is assuming that this conclave is
going to be his party for us--he's probably doing a good job
of planning in that regard. He just hasn't been in
communication with us! I don't think he realizes how
expensive our airline tickets will be, and how far ahead we
have to reserve them, since August is the peak tourist
season in Europe.
If any of you get a mailing about the conclave (other than
the newsletter), please let me know. Likewise, I'll post to
the list any info I'm able to gather.
I'm sorry that I won't be able to join all of you in Koblenz
this year. But there's always next year!
