I'm game.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I think if 5 of us can agree on a time on place, we should confirm it and others will join.

I might be interested. Does anyone have a summer get away home they can host in?
Great idea, although I can't see how we're all gonna  fit in one.

Perhaps someone (I will when I have a chance) want to look through HomeAway and AirBnB to find something

Maybe a few members live in the same bungalow? Or the shabbaton could be limited in size? I am not deciding that but it would make it more intimate...
