Guys, i have been sitting back and letting everyone plead their cases, 
it looks to me that both places have there +'s and -'s
at this point i think it comes down to a coin flip.

and I think that it is up to the APAC Ambassadors to come up with a 
recommendation ASAP and give that to the FPL NOW

HopeFully there will be more FUDCons in the Future for APAC so whomever 
doesnt get the bid this time already has a headstart on the next bidding
