(Also was involved a lot in national PP-DE campaign, spending a lot of time in the streets)

10.1 Report

The conference was wery wel organised. The equipment worked, there was enough volunteers to fill the reguired conference offices. The agenda, RoP and other proposals were prepared.

Despite short time and procedural deadlock during elections, the meeting found a way to resolve it, so all positions were democratically filled.

The young pirates present all seemed to be well focused, eager to do and help the movement. The organisation itself seems to know what to to, what it can do and where it can get its founding.

Gregory: we should send official greetings +1(Thomas)+1(Vojtech)
Voytech: Who will write that? Gregory et al. (Pad will be opened to the board)

TODO: Gregory pad:
