Oh, this is so wonderful for all of you! I wish I were writing to say that I too would be going, but actually I was just wondering if Hans would still be picking up any of the special books he mentioned earlier in this thread? I'll be your groupie in spirit!!

T-shirts sounds like a fun idea!

Yay for Maelin coming too.
A very happy anniversery to you and your husband.

It looks like it can be difficult for my husband and I to come a full week early to the con. The girl who usually lives in our flat taking care of our parrot is moving away at the beginning of September. We have a backup plan, but haven't actually asked the other girls yet. If plan B doesn't work out, my husband and I will travel seperatedly and only be together during the weekend for the con. That way we can ask Lindsey to look in on Odin (the parrot) during the weekend.

Oh well, I'm sure we'll figure something out.

T-shirts? W0ot! I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone from here though. -Chuckles- That's great news Lady M! -Grins- I guess everyone is seriously looking forward to going. -Chuckles-

Nefermiw, I hope it works out and you'll be able to come...^^

SURPRISE Hans!!! This is also the best SurpriseI have ever recieved thanks to Martin (the sneaky little devil ).
We hopefully are booked in at the Hotel Nebo, as there was a bit of confussion last night. We have also paid for our memberships as I said above....so now all we need do is take care of the rest of the million and one other details that it's going to take to get us over there(passports,plane tickets, Kitty hotel for Teddy...etc)...so I can finally eat a real Danish pastry, and give my friends from MOM all {{{HUGs}}}....OH YESSSSSSSSSSS...I can hardly wait.

I still have to check with my mom, who'll be my child-minder back home if I can go, but I'm getting excited about the possibility!

To that end, I'm going to be doing some slicing and copying of this topic into a few different ones, to make finding certain information easier. Specifically I'm want to have one topic each for the following topics:
Who's going
Hotel Info
Con Info
Travel/tourist tips from Nefermiw
(Tshirt info, if plans get off the ground for it)

Any others you can think of that we need? I'll be working on this, on and off today most likely.

We finally found somebody that wouldn't mind living in our flat taking care of our parrot while we are in Denmark! We haven't bought tickets yet, but I think we probably will arrive Wednesday before the con and stay for a short week.

Less than 3 months to go now!!!

Wow, I just noticed that there's an overview of the programm (i.e no details as when and where) up on the web page!

They are mentioning something about VIP tickets to a banquet and round table meetings that wil be offered to members prior to the start of the festival.

I'm getting more and more exited.

Yes, prelims are up!

Official program to follow later.

By the way, I've had confirmation from Knud Larn (Eurocon program coordinator) that we'll have a time slot to present Anne with the first Forty Years of Pern book.

Now all we have to decide/find out is...if any or all of us wants to attend this dinner and if Anne is going to be there???? Although it does sound very interesting/exciting...especially if the "STAR" of the con is attending!!!

Hans, I really don't think that you need have any worries on that score, as you will more than likely be photographed from every angle I would think... I myself am planning on having at least four memory chips for my lovely little camera.

P.S. It is a shame that I don't have a movie camera...because then I would me making MoM home movies for us all to see.

My Aunt and Uncle are currently in Spain...but I shall ask them when they return. I'll be taking my own digital camera, of course...but I can't see there being a huge problem with the taking of my Uncle's Camcorder...

If I can take it, I'll be able to put the 'movie' to my Computer, then edit it and put it onto Discs with some decent Opening and closing gambits. -Rubs chin-

Then all I'd need to do was ask people for the cost of CD's and postage, and I'd be able to do however many was needed...^^

P.S. have you had any time to work on your "Harper Marks"???

P.S. have you had any time to work on your "Harper Marks"???



Thank you Lady M...^^;

And as for the Marks...unfortunately not. I've been working on a wooden paper-opener for myself, with a dragon on the hilt, but I've been doing so many things what with making pens and using my free time sewing clothes for my re-enactment...as well as carrying on with my writing and website-creation... I'm hoping to get some more done over the next week or two however.

Hans: if my mother's legacy turns up in the next few weeks: yes.

If it doesn't, probably not. My daughter's wedding has (as usual) messed with my budget.

Peter, I hope that you recieve you legacy in time then...and will shower you with some of the possitive thought that everyone here sent to me when I needed it most. It is very powerful stuff...so it should help things turn out well for you.
