Wow, how time flies!  Last year was definitely amazing, and I'd love to
be involved to make that happen again.

I'd be very happy to help out organizing stuff on the day if we still
need volunteers for that.  Alternatively, I could also help with the
proposal for the event.  I'm afraid I've been a little slow on my
response this year.  What's the status with that?  Do you need someone
to make a first draft or are we past that already?

Thanks for taking the initiative here!
