Either. Given that this is our first time, we should aim to start modest 
and improve in future years.

Depends on whether we are targeting *only* the 'community' or whether we 
consider ourselves ready to interact with 'non-choir' yet.

As late in November as possible ;) Maybe even December ;)
The question will be moot if we don't collect the rest of us and roll 
our sleeves up!
> d) Location (West Midlands?)

Seems a good choice. It would be an even better choice if we brought our 
West Midlands colleagues here (BVSC, MOST, OpenAdvantage) and discussed 
with them. Until then, it's a good theory...

That would depend on venue. Again, our colleagues who are actually 
present in the West Midlands would be best to help decide this.
