I am not really an Ambassador (only half :D ) but I don't see how an
additional meet would not be useful, there are so many contributors in
this area who didn't meet in person so far...

Except that not everyone can travel such long distance for the FUDCon,
from various reasons, travel expenses being the biggest one.

I disagree, if it wasn't for the bunker, the costs for participation in
Zurich FUDCon would have been prohibitive for many. In Balkans the costs
have to be a lot lower: cheaper lodging, cheaper food. shorter
travels... it only needs a good, motivated organizer.
And a good reason, of course! ;)
