How about an proposed agenda/itinery for those that are wavering?
It's whatever anyone wants it to be!
Calling it a "conference" was just a bit of a joke really. In fact we've had at least two, possibly three, "inaugural" conferences which also confused a few people.
Over the last few years we've had one event each year that has been declared as the "RIBnet conference" and people make a bit of an effort to join in making it a bigger get together than normal.
Probably the most important elements are:
- a good cruising area
- decent launching site and berthing
- a selection of accommodation
- somewhere for a meal and drinks
Anything else that can be organised could be a bonus: an interesting speaker perhaps, local guides for cruising, maybe a treasure hunt or other competition, possibly some sort of training element.
