Does the gathering have a future

A lot of people around me feel that the usefulness of the Grassroots Gatherings is over, that the libertarian movement no longer has any need for such meetings.
I'm not too convinced but on the other hand there was a long gap between 10 and nos 11 & 12 and No 11 was badly attended for a Dublin gathering (the attendence was similar in size to GG1 and only 25% of GG5).  And there is no sign of GG13 which I understood to have been in Galway developing.  Anyone else got an opinion on this?
