and I don't think you will get much problems with overbooked accommodation
related to the soccer worldcup.
So this one goes to Clausthal.

Well - from my time at the army I remember two notorious places: "Klimbim"
and "Pupasch"
Don't know if they still exist after nearly 20 years.

>> Not to forget the good infrastructure...

Well this is a plus but certainly available elsewhere too.

Next train station is Goslar which can be reached by ICE.

Unfortunately this has been completely overlooked while planning the TYCON.

Of course this is a must.

Should be a must too but depends on the overall costs and possible

The only small disadvantage I see for myself is that I won't be able to help
preparing the event on site, since Clausthal is more than 300km from here.
But I can offer other things that will be necessary too.

As far as I understood Kasper is supporting the idea but I think we still
might need something like an official "Go!" for such an event.
Who is/are the person/s in charge for things like this?
