Yay for having another SnowCamp!

It might be a bit blunt to ask but: Was it possible to use the weekend
before that date, or, preferably, one later?

Rationale: Full freeze for buster is scheduled for March 12th, making
March 2nd-ish the last day for a hassle-free upload, making the last
weekend before (Feb 22-24, your SnowCamp proposal), a perfect candidate
for a bug-squashing party. While of course SnowCamp could be declared a
BSP, I expect that would make the event a bit more stressy. Also,
someone(tm) - in Bcc, they should speak up for themselves - already has
plans to do a BSP on that very weekend but cannot move to an earlier
date for various reasons (venue not available, carnival, Fosdem). Of
course such a collision is something to avoid.

And I'd like to go to both events :=)

The following weekend (Feb 28th - Mar 3rd) certainly was the better
choice: Relaxing after the weeks of the RC bugs race, welcoming the
post-freeze fatigue. But I assume prices in March are a bit higher at
the venue?
