hehehe - yea, would be nice :)

We had a bit of a "web-sprint" last year, with the idea of taking on the 
online stuff & address them as a single project to "be fixed".
I think I still have some notes from the last event(s):
* http://www.tangleball.org.nz/wiki/index.php/Website
* http://www.tangleball.org.nz/wiki/index.php/Web_limp

Drupal 7 has matured a bit since then, so maybe we can try it again in 
this new year.

We'll need a bit of coin to "sponsor" a series of small events to 
attract stilled folks from outside (i.e pizza & beer).
* Designers
* Coders (especially PHP/LAMP), integrators
* Product/project-specialists - Drupal, MediaWiki, mailinglist
I think a series of small events would be a better approach than trying 
to do a big push.
