Dear workshop co-ordinators
When you give information about a workshop the FIRST thing you should tell =
is where it is to be held. I don't have the wherewithal to travel long
distances to attend a workshop, so am doubly interested in any that will be
held nearby. Having to read through a whole posting trying to find out if
it's anywhere near me wastes a lot of time, especially when the information
isn't even there and there are 80 or so more new posts to go through a day.
PLEASE put this information first.
