Hi Maarten,

I haven't visited the Forum for a while, due to personal reasons, so I was first disappointed to see that Ghent is postponed for this summer. It does not surprise me at all, but I'm sorry. I was planning to book to come. Sorry especially for you and your parents and other helper organisers as I know how much work, planning and energy is needed to set up an LC Event, for which I thank you!

For me, I'd love to see Ghent rescheduled for summer 2021. I miss you all!

However, I do see there are other peoples' arguments for waiting til 2022. Having read everything, I was particularly struck by Lizzytish's long post. I do live somewhat closer, in London! But I have to go along with the view that in more than a year from now (15 months actually) we will hopefully all be released from this nightmare of sickness, and that by August next year gatherings such as our lovely musical ones to celebrate Leonard should be fine to go ahead.
I will be guided by whatever you as organiser decide is best.
Love Sue x

I'm just here to say I have been thinking of our postponed event since Facebook reminded me that yesterday would have been Day 1 in Ghent. While we are very sad to be quarantining here, we look forward to next year and seeing all of our great friends at the 2021 Event.
