    As said in the earlier thread the only one who has agreed to help and host the FFEM 2009 is Qui-Gina_Jinn from Denmark.

    So this is the official thread to start planning, the first thing we need to decide is when to have it. Most of the meetings have been held in August, since that seems to be the best for everyone. We also need to decide for how long we want to have the meetings, it has been everything from a weekend (ok the first meeting in London in 2002 was just for a day) to 5 days.

    I want to go to Tivoli. :)

    What about a "longer" weekend with arrival on Thursday evening/Friday morning and departure Sunday evening/Monday morning?

    How is the weather in August in Copenhagen?

    And what is the Tivoli? Sounds Italian.

    Tivoli is a classic amusement park in central Copenhagen, just opposite the main train station actually. I would also be happey with a longer weekend. Thursday-Sunday would be nice.

    I have no plans yet for the summer, but I *think* that August would be best for me, so I'm all for it!

    I want to go to Tivoli too, I haven't been there since I was a kid! Great place.

    Lol, Tivoli it is then! :D

    Sorry for not posting here sooner!

    I really look forward to welcoming you all to Copenhagen :)


    August you say?
    That sounds ok for me - though I might have to leave you on your own for most of the friday.
    I have to go to school....

    But so far, there's nothing in my calender for those days, Johanna :)

    So it's settled then?

    If we decide on that weekend I can go out and advertise a bit in the other forums and see if people will get more interested.

    I'd say fine by me :)

    That gives me plenty of time to ask for a day off as well ;)


    Now I just hope that people are able to come there... [face_praying][face_worried]

    I've posted about it all over Europe, hopefully people will notice it.

    I also made a big post about all the previous meetings, but I just managed to deleted it and I just don't have the energy to redo it at the moment.

    A lot of pics from previous FFEM meetings can be found [link=http://s5.photobucket.com/albums/y192/ffsweden/]here[/link]

    And here's a list of the previous meetings:

    2002 - London
    2003 - Paris
    2004 - Lisbon
    2005 - Stockholm
    2006 - Berlin
    2007 - London
    2008 - Düsseldorf

    I'm not sure I can go, but I'd like to. I've just looked at travel and hotels, it'd cost at least £220 for the weekend (getting there the day before and leaving the day after). Does anyone know which hotel most people will be staying in?

    We haven't gotten as far as hotels yet.

    Camilla, do you have any suggestion on a good place to stay?

    Well, I don't normally stay in hotels in Copenhagen ;) :p

    But I will do some scouting and see what I can find.
    I know of a hostel, but let me see what I can dig up :)

    It might not be until after the weekend though - I'm rather busy....

    I'm happy sleeping anywhere as long as I get a bed. And preferably cheap. I don't have any money. :p

    The German Speaking FanForce will be represented by Ben_Stormrider and me, Na-heela, which is to 90% sure! I should be able to get off and Ben's got off University around that time anyway.
    We found a hostel and will book this weekend, arriving 14th in the evening and staying til either Sunday night or Monday morning. So ... count on us! Will be great to see y'all!

    That's really great news!!!!

    I've been thinking and would suggest this as a plan for the days:

    Thursday - people who arrive early can meet up and do something
    Friday day - Visit some famous place/museum/something in Copenhagen (by ourselves since Camilla is in school=
    Friday evening - Tivoli!
    Saturday day - take a trip outside Copenhagen, Camilla really needs to help with an idea for this though. In Stockholm we went out into the archipelago and in Berlin we went out to Potsdam over the day
    Saturday evening - a meal somewhere together
    Sunday - something soft in Copenhagen so that people can leave when they have to for the airport/trainstation/other means of transportation.

    Tivoli has free concerts most fridays in the summer - well free once you have payed entrance to Tivoli that is.
    On that particular friday [link=http://www.tivoli.dk/fredagsrock/kunstnere/nerd]N*E*R*D[/link] is playing but of couse the rest of the garden is open as usual if you don't care for the music.

    Sounds like a great plan. :D
    Just one thing though, can someone make sure that the eating places have vegetarian food?

    I'm still not sure I can go, but I've not had a holiday in years, so I'll have to ask my parents. [face_thinking]

    Sorry for the double post but I forgot to say something. If anyone is interested I can knock up some Pazaak decks. It's really easy to play and it's a Star Wars game. :)

    That sounds like something we could do if we have some kind of picnic or so on Saturday.

    So how many people are actually coming here? Me and Berg from Sweden have bought our flight tickets for Thursday-Sunday in Copenhagen.

    I've checked things to do, and I would recommend buying a CPH-card. A 24 hour card costs 225 DK and gives you free public transport, entry to a lot of museums and entry to Tivoli (which in itself costs 125 DK). I would suggest buying one of these CPH-cards on Friday, and then we can go around to museums that sounds interesting, and finish the day at Tivoli.

    I'm sorry everyone, but I won't be able to join you... one of my best friends is getting married, and has chosen this particular weekend. So no Copenhagen for me, unfortunately. I hope you have fun without me! :)

    These are what we have talked about so far.

    Friday
    I think it will only be me and David from Sweden there on the day, but at 17 we can meet under the big clock at the central station. Then we can spend the evening having fun together.

    Saturday
    Camilla (Qui-Gina_Jinn) has suggested going to Roskilde and the Viking Ship museum, that will give us a chance for a nice little daytrip.
