Well - we'd actually like to continue to work on our bid, as we received
some constructive criticism about what was wrong with it.

But sure - by all means award 2008 to Melbourne and we'd be more than
happy to work with teams bidding for 2009 and beyond.

At this point - without any further guidelines, I'm planning on
submitting our bid at the end of April, and was hoping for a decision at
the end of June, but no later than the end of July.

Sydney7 - not speaking for the whole MEL8 team on this point, 
but I'm on your side and am a willing slave. ;)
