EMC Elect 2014 summer event

EMC Elect 2014 summer event!

What if the Elect members from the Belgium/Netherlands/Germany(/UK)(/France) area would come together in a somewhat centralized place like, for example, in a fun park? It would have nothing to do with “Geek Talk” and everything with having a bit of fun. How would you respond to an initiative like that?

Please respond by replying to this post (or in the original post on ECN) and maybe we can actually do something together. With family, without, with some food-related event afterwards, without, please speak up and we will figure out something cool to do the summer!!!

My first thought was to visit the number 3 nicest fun park in Europe (in 2012 I think) called “the Efteling” (www.efteling.com. For those who don’t know the park, it’s all about fairy tales, or at least that’s how it all started in 1952. Nowadays there’s still the magic forest for those with small children, but also some thrill rides and even a few nice relaxing rides like the “Fata Morgana” or the “Droomvlucht” will take your breath away. And for those who think the Las Vegas Bellagio Fountains are sooooo beautiful, you haven’t seen anything yet! The recently built “Aquanura” uses music, fire and different colors or light compared to the monochrome water in Vegas.

Afterwards we could eat something on the park or somewhere offsite (any ideas?)

So make yourself heard and let us know what you think of this.

Who am I targeting for this event? Dutch, Belgian, German Elect members are obvious, but English, Irish or French are welcome too. But if somebody is on vacation here from any other country, they are welcome too, just make sure to make yourself heard.

On ECN I’ve created a little table in which you can fill out any details if you want to participate. Large comments or suggestions should be in a reply to that post, dates and small comments can be put in the table.

  1. Last year the Summer event didn’t quite take off the way I would have liked, but maybe this year? It needs to be localized, since I cannot expect people from the US flying to Europe, just for a barbecue or something and also not the other way around. But does anyone have any plans or ideas?

Would you like to comment on this post?
