1st International Carcassonne Fan Meeting, July 3-8, 2018
« on: January 02, 2018, 07:13:18 AM »
1st International Carcassonne Fan Meeting, 3rd to 8th of July 2018
at International Meeting Centre St. Marienthal in Saxony

The monastery St. Marienthal, founded in 1234, is located within the border triangle of Germany, Poland and Czech Republic, not far away from Görlitz.
Carcassonne players know the monastery St. Marienthalvery well from the 2014 expansion "The German Monasteries".
Since 1991 the cloistral buildings have been hosting the International Meeting Centre, a conference and education facility with over 25,000 overnight stays a year.
We chose this idyllic place situated nearby the river Neisse for the 1st International Carcassonne fan meeting.
A diversified programme including new kinds of tournaments, presentations of prototypes, quiz evening events, meeple building contests, and much more is awaiting our adult and young participants.
Besides game designer Klaus-Jürgen Wrede, also Moritz Brunnhofer, CEO of Hans im Glück Verlag, and graphics designer Christof Tisch  have agreed to come along.
A visit to Görlitz, the easternmost city of Germany, whose historic centre served as a setting in many Hollywood films, is firmly scheduled.

Unfortunately the number of participants has to be limited to 40 individuals.
Below you will find some information on arrival, costs, and registration:

Arrival: Individual  arrival  of  participants  (on  request,  a  transfer  from Dresden to Ostritz can be organized).

Costs:
Adults:Euro 269,-
Youths (11-17 years):Euro 189,-
Children (2-10 years):Euro 139,-
The costs include: 5 nights with full board (breakfast, lunch, dinner), half day excursion to Görlitz, program.

Registration: Please send a binding declaration of participation including the number of persons and their age by 31st January 2018 to Udo Schmitz: u.schmitz@forum-spiel.de
You will then receive the corresponding forms for binding registration.

We have talked about it and looks unlikely for us.

Görlitz sounds like a very exciting place to visit, according to Wikipedia: In 2006 the twin city Görlitz/Zgorzelec applied to be the European City of Culture 2010. It was hoped that the concept of Polish-German cooperation would be sufficient to convince the jury, but Essen won.

The chance to see St. Marienthal, up close will be special too and no doubt add to the experience of playing with the German Monasteries!

Binding Declaration ?

Further Googling make me believe it's a lost-in-translation thing: https://www.linguee.de/englisch-deutsch/uebersetzung/binding+declaration.html

But seriously:  I've updated the original post to record who has confirmed sending theirs!

The poor organisers thought they were going to get 40 lovely and gentle German people to this thing. Little did they know it's going to be all British hooligans!!  >:D

I would just like to extend an offer to our friends on the American Continents:

If anyone would like to spend an extra day or so before or after the event, either because that make more logistic sense, it's cheaper, or just because you'd like to come and say hello, you're very welcome to stop at ours.  I will warn you'll have to take us how you find us though..dirty socks and all  ;)

Edit:  Obviously, that is extended to anyone (not just our friends on the American Continents), but I suspect the transport is less viable due to distance and direction of travel :(y)

I tried to send a non-binding indication of potential interest. Though realistically, I don't think I can go because of scheduling concerns that probably won't be resolved for a couple of months, by which time it'll probably be too late to confirm participation.
