> === Announcement #2 ===
> Hello, and welcome to our long anticipated second official bulletin
> regarding the 2006 YAPC::Europe Perl Conference from the Birmingham 2006
> Organisers. 
> When signing up to host a YAPC::Europe we never expected, despite the
> words of warnings from previous organisers (see Cog's final speech in
> Braga), just how traumatic it could be. 
> It has been unfortunate that negotiations with venues didn't go as
> planned and have taken considerably longer than we had anticipated.
> However, we have found a venue, so we hope this crazy mule of a
> conference is finally coming under control, so please be prepared for a
> plethora of announcements and updates in the coming months. It's time to
> uncage the beast...
> ==== The Dates ====
> After many many requests, we can now reveal the official dates for the
> conference. The conference will be held from ...
>     Wednesday 30th August to Friday 1st September 2006.
> In the UK this follows the bank holiday weekend, and is the calm before
> the storm when all the students return during September.
> We are planning meetup events in a local pub in the evening for Tuesday
> 29th August and Saturday 2nd September, to extend the conference
> experience, for anyone arriving early and/or leaving later. Details of
> these will be announced nearer the time.
> ==== About Birmingham ====
> For those wondering where Birmingham is, and why they should come and
> visit us, please read on.
> Birmingham is the UK's second city, located in the heart of England.
> Technically speaking the village of Meriden is the centre of England,
> which is located 10 miles south of Birmingham city centre, but
> Birmingham has always been the commercial centre.
> Birmingham grew from humble beginnings of a group of small villages,
> through the industrial focal point it became in the 1800s, to the
> commercial city it is today. As a result of this Birmingham has become a
> hub for road, rail and canal networks. 
> There is a rich history both in Birmingham and in the West Midlands,
> with towns and cities in the surrounding area providing many attractions
> to keep visitors entertained. Stratford-upon-Avon, Leamington Spa,
> Warwick and Ironbridge are all within easy reach of Birmingham, should
> you wish to extend your stay.
> ==== Contact ====
> Should you wish to contact us, there is now an email address available
> for direct contact, where you can mail us with your questions and
> suggestions. The address is: 
> organisers at birmingham2006.com
> There is also the regular YAPC::Europe conference mailing list, open to
> all. See  http://lists.yapceurope.org/mailman/listinfo/conferences. for
> more details.
> That's all for this release. Look out for more news and announcements
> coming soon.
> Thanks,
