Hosts (informal)

A good thank you for hosts you know personally.

Dear <hosts' names>,

Thank you tremendously for hosting us at <location> this weekend. We know you're all incredibly busy, and to take a weekend of your precious free time to wake up early and spend hours in a windowless room is more than we could ever ask for.

<follow up on this, if you'd like>

We've written a more formal thank-you to <institution> in case it helps to send it to "official" people in order to get more happy goodwill surrounding OLPC events on campus.

Here's the boilerplate summary that's going out to everyone:
