This is all taken from the latest Kvacket (NAFS(k)'s newsletter), so
most Swedes on the list will already have (or will soon get) this in
their mail. And for most of the rest of you maybe this isn't that
interesting, as it happens so far away... Hm, hopefully this is of
interest to some of you anyway; maybe to Norwegians and Danes at
least (as data about most other countries in the tour is minimal.
Just what dates Barks will be there -- but even that information is
updated and substantially different from what was published in CBG
