I surely will have an event in 2010 and probably I will even own (a
small) one. So coming to Rheinfelden is a duty for me?

Near you??? Rheinfelden is near yours (it's Gerold's home town for those
who didn't know), but it's far away from my place. This is why I think
that the ambassadors days should rotate.

According to FAS we have 26 ambassadors at Germany. Should they all
announce a FAD? Come on, be serious! We cannot have 26 FADs in Germany
within a year.

The truth is: The number of FADs per year is limited. Financial
resources are limited and so are the topics on the agenda [1]. We cannot
have a FAD that decides to do a set of events in 2010 while other
ambassadors at another FAD decide to do completely different ones.

And because the FAD is unique for a country/region and a
year/term/quarter it should rotate, so that all (interested) ambassadors
can attend and participate in decision-making.

Even if I do not attend I consider myself an active ambassador.
