Not tomorrow and not next year, the rest is down to how long it takes
to organise the venue and whether you are expecting people to travel to
Is accommodation required? Flexible crash space is much more
appropriate than purchased accommodation as people do just turn up in
the hope of having somewhere to sleep.

IRC, planet, mailing lists - critical element is a wiki page which
people can edit to add themselves.
Most importantly, don't think about organising the BSP, just organise
the venue, create the wiki page and publicise it.
