    Turambar here, with the power of edit :D

    I've stickied this, so everyone gets a chance to see it.

    No to ruin a historic - but ultimately failed thread here - but it seems to be hijacked by a new attempt to bring the European contingent of TFF together. It's going to be the last weekend of July 2016.

    Place of action: Gdánsk, Poland.

    It's going to happen peeps, the hype is - finally - real. Get your derrière over to the end of this thread for more info :D

    Participants so far:

    - Oddrun
    - Anonymous
    - Firiath
    - Turambar

    Buuuut more = merrier!





    So, listening to the almighty Turambar, we should organize it. At least in theory. Then we'd have a theoretical plan and we'd only need a weekend where everyone is free :)

    Main questions to be solved:
    - Who's in?
    knowing that we can also decide:
    - Where to meet?
    and
    - How to get there?
    Having solved those things we could make a plan on
    - What to do?
    Because sitting around would be boring... >.>

    And finally, if ever we get to that point, we could decide,
    - When to meet?

    So I'm in, who else?


    By the way, I do not intend this to be Spam, so please... don't get too carried away >.>

    Thanks

    I really wish I could be in on this! But I'm not 18 yet, so I most likely won't work. :/

    But still, if I was lucky enough to be a part of this, I'd suggest going to an amusement park or something! Nothing like bonding during a trip in the roller coaster... :D

    Hmm amusment parks are ok -- but I think it would be great if it could be arranged around some Fantasy/Scifi convention event already running. Regardless we do need something to attend/be at/do as well as just meeting up - just to help break the ice a bit.


    I'd be up for this - but currently I have no traveling budget what so ever - next year thigns might improve (I hope), but even so I am mostly UK bound

    Movienight doesn't work as icebreaker. And event would help a lot, as OR said.

    My traveling budget isn't big either. IT'd have to be real cheap. (Though I belive you can get a flight from Britain to the continental Europe for 30€?!)

    Yah movies are a bit too impersonal for a meeting location - might be a nice ending to a meeting though or as something building into the afternoon, but I would say for a first meeting perhaps not the best

    Some of those cheap flights have some conditions - either booking way way in advance or booking vacent seats on an outbound flight - ie if people don't turn up or there are spare seats flight companies will sell those seats at much reduced rates just to get people on board. The problem with hte latter method though is that whilst you get to your destination there is no garantee that there will be a spare seat going back home ;)

    Sitting in a park on a sunny afternoon having food and drink is probably the most sociable and easy way to spend the time. It is also one of the most fun ways.

    I am going to take a guess and assume that all eprsons coming will be at least of age 18? If so, a night out in a pub/bar would be cool. Again, just sitting around and talking.

    I assume sitting around and talking is the best activity for most TFFers since 90% of you just sit in spam chatting all day anyway.

    getting drunk is maybe too personal to brake the ice -.- :p

    How about Ringcon?

    Urgh pubs are dark --- *makes note to remember to bring teh flashy thing!*

    I think if pubs are a consideration we might want to meet up in someones home patch - as it were - so that we get to the right kinda pub. Like I said (I think I did) it would be a good ending to a day - but something during the day would be nice too (so we have sight of each other before the darkness creeps in )

    what to talk about though since there wouldn't be any AA to induce weird topics?!
    Oh and Ringcon would be way too expensive I assume.

    How about a short tour through a city, self planned then it wouldn't get expensive...

    Who says you have to get drunk?

    Does nobody go out for a drink to just enjoy themselves instead of getting inebriated? Anyway I just putting forward an idea, since I was assuming most of us here aren't social misfits :p

    What to talk about? People must have stories to tell. Hell even your journey there and what you saw on the way could be spoken about. You've never met each other personally before, so you must have something to talk about. Also knowing how TFF is, I'm sure something will pop up that will suddenly send us off on a random tangent.

    OR: You sure you're going to a pub rather than a serial killer's cellar? :p
