Most of them need active mentoring beyond a event, maybe we must give them 
concrete tasks to find a way to contribute.
In the past we have some examples of Ambassadors in Germany who never realised 
what it mean to contribute and abuse trust and make harm to project and other 
Ambassadors - see FAD2007 and 2006 in Rheinfelden.

Over all - a good idea and a good thing to raise quantity. We should try this!
