At the moment I'm enquiring about the 1200 from Cherpovec. This looks the best for me timewise (reasonable time between my own 600 and the brevet) and the most doable. Today I joined the group of the Cherpovec club on Russia's facebook clone, vkontakte. I'll post more info here when I receive it.

Sure about BMB?   The official site says it won't happen in 2010 and there's no mention I could find in a quick search of randon...

BMB is awaiting a volunteer to step up as organiser. This might not happen.

AFAIR, it wasn't just 'a volunteer'.  The previous organiser was looking for a buyer for the rights to hold the event.

The whole concept of 'buying the rights of an event' seems quite odd to me.

USA does have a thing for rampant capitalism, reputedly.
