    Maybe we should plan the meeting of '05 for a very big cinema meeting. ;)

    At last, in Spain, we are gonna do something for the first cinema show ;)

    EDIT: Nice icon, WhiteHorse :D

    FF Sweden would love to invite you all for 2005, and here you would all be able to see the film in english!

    But I think it's definetly time to decide something about the summer. I must say that eventhough I would like to go to Spain I think we should keep the meetings to official FF chapters. It would be an extra perk for them, and also that way we could be sure to have people in place to help arrange things.

    Ok, I understand you perfectly when you say that you should go to a place where some people can take care about the stuff of the meeting.

    I'm gonna re-iniciate my conversationes with people of Spain to (finally) create a FF, and BTW, some help would be cool ;)

    If you need help... as much as I can. :)



    I think we need first all the people who are really interested in a meeting. And then a date when most of us have time for a meeting. :)

    1. Who really wants to come to a meeting?
    2. Only weekend or more days?
    3. Which date?

    The first fact is that Spain is big, and most of the people in the board are young (17-25), so, some of them doesn't have driving license (like me). Well... we're planning a meeting in Madrid to see the Episode III together.


    1. Who really wants to come to a meeting?

    Eneryone said "ok" to build a FF, but not too much of them would like to move 300 km (or more) to see other people of the internet.

    2. Only weekend or more days?

    For me weekends, except holidays, when I would be able to go anyday. This is my point of view, which I think the rest of spanish people share with me.

    3. Which date?

    Would be nice before summer, we're planning have two meetings and the last one... we have to think about it ;)

    hmmm pirry, maybe I can help you?

    They don't have to move 300 km to see others :) You can have meetings for at least 3 people, who can be at the meetings :) And they don't have to come to all the meetings :)
    (For example, if in Madrit lives 3 of Future FF Spain, they can have the first meeting, and the rest of SFF, don't have to come there :))

    2. Only weekend or more days?
    For me weekends, except holidays, when I would be able to go anyday. This is my point of view, which I think the rest of spanish people share with me.


    These can be a few hours meetings as well :)

    3. Which date?
    Would be nice before summer, we're planning have two meetings and the last one... we have to think about it


    Don't think about it, just do it ;)

    Ups... sorry everyone! I was a bit in hurry, so missed to make it clear, that my last paragraph and the questions were only related to the FF Meeting 2004. :)

    I am sorry to confuse you.


    Manu, for you spanish FF: You still need at least three people and three meetings to become official.
    How long or what are you doing isn't really important. ;) :)




    For our big European FF Meeting 2004:

    I think we need first all the people who are really interested in a meeting. And then a date when most of us have time for a meeting.

    Sorry Sabine, I'm a disaster :_| ;)


    Thanks Darth_Fizyk for your help! :D ;)

    They don't have to move 300 km to see others You can have meetings for at least 3 people, who can be at the meetings And they don't have to come to all the meetings

    I understand it clearly, but you know, FF is not only 3 meeting, what makes it different is that you make activities with the rest people of the FF, any kind of activities. That's what I meant ;)

    We can easily have a meeting in seville of 3 people, and in zaragoza as well, I really don't know where we can do the last one ?[face_plain] ;)

    Start in a small scale, get the groups of people you know of to meet, and then try to meet each other. You have to get the ball rolling. :)

    And for Sabine's questions.

    1. I'm coming!
    2. I would actually like it to be a bit more than a weekend, last time it was really the saturday that we could use, because everbody had to travel on friday and sunday.
    3. For me the first week of August would be the best.

    Hello Skiara. Hello Pirry (i like your avatar also ;) ).

    1. Who really wants to come to a meeting?
    I would, but since i'm saving money to buy my first car. I only can if Lisbon is picked. (But i guess that's almost everyone's main problem in going: money. Other than that, time.)

    2. Only weekend or more days?
    An extended weekend. 3 to 4 days. So that one can actually enjoy it. ..And not buring out almost all the time just checking in to hotel, and then packing out to the airport again. That's money badly spent. For just little more and 1 or 2 days vacation of the job, one can really enjoy and being worth every euro.

    3. Which date?
    Near the ending date of the low season prices, just before summer months. :)

    Speaking from last year it seems as if the German school and universities don't finish until August. Personally I'm working from June to the middle of August, but it's no problem getting time off if I can say in February when I want my holidays.

    You are right, Johanna! :) German university won't end till august.
    But for me it doesn't matter, because I'll finish my study in February. ;) :)

    So...

    1. I want to come! :)
    2. I am not sure, if I can get holidays. But if, I would vote for four (maybe five) days. :)
    3. Doesn't really matter (see above). ;)

    Pirry The problem with the meetings is only in the beginning but later on you will have no problems. First it was hard for us to make any meeting but then we started meetings and we meet every month :) There are at least 7 people from FF Poland and more from other Polish sites at every meeting. If it goes well we will meet at Alderaan 2004 in Summer in whole team :D

    1. Who really wants to come to a meeting?
    I'm coming, unless it costs A LOT of money... :)

    2. Only weekend or more days?
    I'd prefer at least a couple of days. More fun, and it seems to me a bit of waste of money to travel somewhere and only staying a very short while.

    3. Which date?
    I think any date will work with me, as long as it's picked pretty soon so I can plan the rest of the summer... :)

    Although I think (hope) that not everyone haven't posted here yet. The summary of the posts above says it would be the best to plan for:

    - 4-5 days (including weekend),
    - August or September and
    - cheap.

    Correct? :)



    If that is correct, then we need a place. Any suggestions? :)

    I was going to save this as a surprise when it was ready.

    But since you are already at this part of the discussion here it goes:

    I already had offered lisbon has a host for 2004. Being that i would arrange and prepare everything.

    More recently, I talked to Anya the co-CR of Portugal (soon to be the true CR, she's old enough now). And she supports the idea.

    Doesn't end in here.

    Having this support, 1 week ago I started preparing a site wich will be the candidacy of Lisbon/Portugal for hosting this event. I'm doing so in my "free" time so it's not ready yet. Only Anya has seen it and knew about it.. till now :p

    So, Lisbon (Lisboa) is going to post his official candidacy later on in the future days. My suggestion to the other candidate cities is to do something similar. So that ppl here get better informed of the choices and can choose better.

    Hugs to all.

    White's been working hard to find only the BEST of BEST in Lisbon... If I didn't know the city already I'd fall in love with the pictures alone. :D

    I'd love to be able to attend this year's Europe meeting, but like so many around money is a big problem... :( So if the meeting is held in either portugal or Spain I'll be able to attend, elswhere it'll be more problematic... Depends on how much it takes to get me there and back again. ;) As for dates, july/augost/september is fine with me, since I won't have any exams during those months.

    If the meeting comes to Lisbon, I probably will stay where most of the visitors stay (the Youth Hostels being the cheapest "recomendable" places available) since it'll be easier for me and it's the best way to spend time with everyone.

    For those who have to take an airplane in order to get to wherever the Meeting ends up taking place, the best way is to travel over a saturday... At least it's cheaper. Departing and arriving on a saturday cuts prices dramatically... But not everyone can stay a week abroad. :(

    I'm sure that was discussed for last year's meeting in Paris, though...
