MBN Mega-meet 2010
 
It's a nice round number for a meet so let's make a memorable one. I'm making this right now in the vague hope that a bit of pre-planning might get some good results.

So everything is open to discussion at the moment, and only two things need to be decided on; time and place. Post here if you're interested in attending and we can try and accommodate for the majority of people.

I'll suggest Amsterdam as a meeting place, it seems pretty central for a lot of members, and afaik is within a reasonable price range to reach if you live anywhere in Europe or the UK. Either easter time or summer for the time of year, preferably something with good weather!

So let's get the ball rolling.

Is anyone still around here at all? Seems like in the past days there were like 10 posts a day or something... :-/

Personally I wouldn't mind a meeting. I have one more year of doing nothing before going to uni, so I'm free at any time.

Amsterdam is fine with me, as long as I don't have school.

Darkflame 2009-10-12 17:32

I'll probably meet up then.
Been soooo busy recently, should be calmer by then.

I want to visit Amsterdam regardless of the meet as well, I hear only good things about it, so it's gotta be good for tourists.

We don't have enough NA members for a NA meeting. Someday, I'll attend the Euro one(s).

Neko 2009-10-12 23:26

amsterdam? let's do it.

xesf 2009-10-13 00:11

If we organize it in time, I can take holidays for the meeting. Count on me!

Bot13 2009-10-13 00:55

Up for Amsterdam any time!

wacko 2009-10-13 01:06

Up for Amsterdam any time.

Neko 2009-10-13 10:02

why don't we just do a meeting in amsterdam very soon just for the dutchies to warm up?

elmuerte 2009-10-13 13:44

But Amsterdam is an hour away from my upcoming location.

Kobold 2009-10-13 15:30

I'd say Amsterdam is a day away from my location.

xesf 2009-10-13 15:47

With a plane it can be in few hours.

Kobold 2009-10-13 16:07

That would be possible, but considering I'm more of a nerd (and autist) than a social person, I don't think I would really enjoy a meeting. For example, I hate alcohol and I'm allergic to cigarette smoke; then I'm not too excited about going to a restaurant just to sit there and talk.

xesf 2009-10-13 16:11

I don't smoke and I don't drink as well (actually I try a Guinness in UK :)), but if we actually try something different instead of being every time in the same place its really enjoyable. It will always help you to be a more social person.

You are aware that currently it is not allowed to smoke in restaurants and that you can drink non-alcoholic beverages in restaurants.

Kobold 2009-10-13 16:25

1) No, I know it's true in Bavaria but that's about it.
2) Of course. I didn't really get what they were doing in London though but I remember some fuzz about being 18 or not.

Aule 2009-10-13 16:44

I'm up for most locations in the world if the time is right.

I'm still up for a scandinavian meeting, maybe a pre-meeting?

Kind of the same lines of thinking for me. On the other hand I think the experience is worth experiencing. I think what we're going to do will be the tie-breaker on my behalf. If it's for example just going around to parties and drinking and smoking then I probably won't go.

It will probably not be that, the London meeting was not like that at all.

I'll come if the timing is right, I might be in China by then, but who knows. Early planning is important, we can get cheaper plane/train tickets and plan the holidays.

Probably a typo, but just so everyone knows: it's not allowed, so fear not for any cigarette smoke.

elmuerte 2009-10-14 00:31

yes, a typo... no smoking in bars, restaurants, etc. (tuxedo allowed)

Gustav Sweden 2009-10-24 02:00

Good idea!

Polaris 2010-01-02 21:23

If I'm able to come, it will be only during the summer holidays. I'd really like to come |)
