I've yet to see evidence of your rationality, Bret.

No, it will just turn into a circus. That's why we elect a committee. If the
committee screws up, heads roll.

I had my say! Did you vote?

Sure, and I fully expect the local teams and committee to figure out a great
place to hold it each year.

Bret, if it was up for open discussion on the mailing list, you'd be sending
twice as many crackpotted emails and railing on about the inappropriateness
of allowing another sovereign country (that doesn't believe in meat pies) to
hold the event. I'm grateful we're only stuck with the post-decision crack.

Rock on New Zealand!
