 PyPy Cape Town Sprint Oct 7th - Oct 21st 2012
 =============================================
 
-The next PyPy sprint will be in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a public sprint, 
-suitable for newcomers. The sprint is hosted after the end of
-`PyCon South Africa`_, which happens on 4th and 5th of October.
-This is a relatively unusual sprint that is hosted
-halfway across the world from where most contributors live, hence we plan
-to spend some time during those 2 weeks doing sprinting and some time doing
-touristy stuff. The goals for the sprint are general progress and whatever
-people are interested in.
