Awesome! That sounds like another chance to take revenge over Vincent
on ice-cream eating.

Thanks for taking the first step about this on gugmasters, this Friday
our local group has a meeting for talking about something we are
putting together this December, I'll comment them about this chance,
but I think I can already say that there's no problem with the date,
you can be sure that we want our share of Vincent and Andre next year

We could even work out getting people from Chile and Perú together for
at least one of the two events, it would be really cool!.

I look forward for this to happen :), I'll get back to you with some
more ideas this weekend. Let's see what others have to say, please
feel free to comment!
