My lord and I would be very, very interested in attending a KWDMS in
Germany in 2016 or 2018. Summertime is probably essential. We'd want
to make a vacation of it, and I'm planning on finishing my teaching
certificate beginning this fall, giving me summers "off"-ish in the
future. I'd be concerned about a 2015 one, if Mistress Deonna and her
people opt for a 2014 date. Otherwise, people might opt for the
Germany KWDMS over the Saratoga NY one, and I think it'd be best to
space them out to give both events the best shot at success.

I actually have a 14th c. site here that would be idyllic for such a venture (depending on how many classes tracks we would run), with a 19th c. neogothic hostel with beds for only 14 EUR per night within five minute walking distance. The question I have is: would it be worth hosting a KWDS over here? How many people would make the trip (for flight costs, it would be better to host it in Jan, Feb. or March)? I recall that the KWDS in Lochac attracted very few people from outside the region. What do people think about attending such an event here in Europe?
