For the record, I disagree with your way of depicting history.

As far as I'm concerned, there was way more than "it was already chosen" in my 
[0] reasoning in favour of Le Camp: proximity to locals [1], fitting with our 
vision [2], prices [3,4], timing of the discussions to change venue with 
regards to progress made with Le Camp, etc.

I'm not sure it's the right place, time and thread to further debate that 
subject, though.


[0] As I don't want to generalize it to others.
[1] Which is interesting in two ways: we can more easily go to the venue and
    we can more easily contact sponsors. The canton just got added as Gold
    sponsor, as a direct result of local lobbying by a team member.
[2] And thereby "motivation of the involved people"
[3] As mere example, the St-Moritz proposal
    <201212051508.30046.odyx@debian.org> had beds for twice the price and
    didn't include talk rooms.
[4] The budget we had in the original bid is per-day (aka it was for two
    weeks, now we currently have one), very similar to the finally-DPL-agreed
