    Yep, I think it's really time to start discussing the next meeting... :D

    As some of you have probably heard, we in FF Sweden would be more than happy to host the meeting in Stockholm. For those who don't know it, Stockholm is the capital of Sweden, and is an old city located on 14 islands in Lake Mälaren. If you'd like to know more you can check this site. :)

    We really hope people will want to come and visit our beautiful capital! :D (Oh gosh, I sound like some tourist bureau there... :p)

    When will this meeting take place? In the time SW comes out in the cinemas? Or in summer? :)


    And if it will be possible for me, I would like to come and part of the meeting. :D

    In the summer! :D

    Some time when as many people as possible can come... and Ep3 will of course still be in the cinemas in the summer, so we can go watch it... undubbed! ;)

    I'm in. Don't want to sit at home and be jealous at other people meeting up again next year. :p ;)

    So, unless I have something really important to do at the time of the meeting (which is unlikely), I'll be there. :)

    Meeting?! I'm still suffering from the last one :p

    No, seriouse: I think it's a great thing that we want to keep this kind of meetings alive!! :*

    What about the idea of expanding the meeting to 4 days instead of 3?!
    The experience we had with 3 days in Paris was, that we only had 1 full day, which was a bit less than needed.
    Having four days in Lissabon gave us the chance to see more, spent more time together, make better friends :D

    What do you think?

    I think four days is a great idea. It will give us time to socialise and still see some things. :)

    Longer is always better. ;) :D

    But if the meeting last longer than a weekend, some people who don't get free from their job, can't be there all the time. But maybe they could join later and if the important things will be on the weekend, it is a great idea. :D

    I also think 4 days is a good idea.

    As for dates, even though it's early. The last meetings have been in the first week of August, I think that's a good date, and it seems as if most people are free around then.

    I will do my up-most to attend this one :D :D
    And I agree with Sabine in that people should try and join whenever they can, that way more people will get to come even though it might not be for the full four days. It may make organising things more difficult, but in the long run I think it might be worth it :)

    Actualy in Lisbon it was 5 days. (arrival Wednesday, departure at Sunday). 4 days is still little on my oppinion.

    I think it's a good time to start talking about the 2005 meeting, also. :) Like done for 2004 when the Paris meeting was over. O:)

    I am interested in going to the next one :) no doubt. And I hope that some of the concepts used on the last meeting proove to be good enough to be kept for the next ones. :)

    [:D]

    :_| I am so sad that the 2004 meeting is over...

    Well... :cool: Not quite over.. :eek:
    If i consider Morgaine as a late participant. [face_batting]

    As a resume: I offered I would repeat the schedule and places visited to her if she would come still later on.

    She will arrive to Lisbon this saturday and will stay a week.

    So i still get to live a bit the 2004 meeting again! :D YEY! :D :D

    WOW, Julia. You lucky one! :D

    But be warned you will have a hugh programm to do ;)
    Gladly you have a whole week. :)
    But I can recommend you Tiago as a privat tourit guide :D ;)

    Have Fun!! :)

    Edit: We had 5 days!? :eek: Well, 4 sounded wrong al the time to me :p
    Well if people are already thinking it will be hard to attned four days I'm sure the will have problems to attend five...
    But Tiago, it will be hard to have a so well organised Meeting again in the future ;) [:D]

    Yeah, is good time to discuss! :D

    This time will be much harder for me to go, mostly because I have begun university, so first year is always hard, and summer will be busy too.... but anyway, I'm already saving money :p :D

    4 days is fine, but I have to say 5 days is PERFECT. Lisbon is a example, and I would vote "yes" :D

    Any other candidacy besides sweden? :D

    Hugs to all! [:D]

    I think five days is possible to organise. :) The longer the better :D (within reason of course)

    EDIT: I'd like to add I support early August as a meeting time.

    Indeed. Augost is the best (and the only) month that I would have a chance :(

    For me it's no problem with five days (heck, it would be great if we had like two weeks, but I guess most people can't come for so long. ;)), I'm all for it! :D

    From what I've heard Tiago arranged such a great meeting that it will be really hard for us to reach that level, but we'll do our best... ;)

    I think August is the best month too, since I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that most people have their vacations in August. Also, the weather is usually best in Sweden in August. :)

    Not cold I hope

    For someone complaining about the portuguese heat... ;)


    I'll get to meet Morgaine sometime this week! Whee! :D As for the 2005 meeting in Sweden, it's a bit early for me to be able to tell, but most likely I won't be able to go. :( I'm saving money for a big trip in 2006, and most likely I'm going to college this year... So it'll be a bit hard on the money side of everything. There's always the chance that I'll find a dream part-time job that pays twice as much as a regular 8-5 job while doing only half the hours, orf course. In that case, I'll most certainly go. :D Or if a really-distant aunt/uncle/cousin/ suddently includes me on their will, something like that. :D


    Ah well, a gal can dream. :( I want to meet more FanForcers!

    The one good thing about August next year is that I'll be free from doing A levels :D

    So I can do what I like for a bit
