We would do our best to attend a KWDS in Germany in 2015 or 2016 --
we've been wanting to go to Poland and this would be a good
opportunity to do some touring there. We can travel most any time but
late May / early June would be the ideal time for us.

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?
