I?d like to volunteer to host WineConf 2019 in Toronto, Canada.  
Toronto is the largest city in Canada and sits on the coast of Lake  
Ontario (14th largest lake in the world). We have plenty of bars and  
yes, lots of good beer. :-) What else do you need?

I?ve looked into venues and the most economical room rates are the  
weekend of Oct 12-13. That?s around $189 CAD + Tax. For about 20% more  
we can hold it in mid or late August.  While the weather in August is  
much nicer, October should still be pleasant. (~10-15 C)

     It's time to start thinking about this year's Wine conference!

     Until now, selecting the next WineConf was a more or less ad-hoc
     process, but we had some discussions on the wineconf list a while ago,
     and it was suggested that the Wine Committee should play a more active
     role in the decision, especially since the chosen location impacts the
     financial decisions.

     Ideally we'd define a formal set of requirements, and issue a Call for
     Proposals, but it was felt that this would take too much time and thus
     would be more appropriate for 2020. So I thought that for this year we'd
     do a simple call for volunteers, and have the Wine Committee work with
     the volunteers to select the best proposal.

     So, would anybody like to volunteer to host WineConf 2019?
