welcome to the Family of MUG Leaders :wave: and nice to “see” you again.
Unfortunately Amsterdam is too far to join physically, are you going to record and share the sessions?

Hey Michael! Thanks for the welcome, or the welcome back. I would love to have you there but it is too far, as you said. Recording is not in my plans, should it? Now I am going to think about whether it is possible.
