Title: BBQQ 2016 location continued
Post by: Zuleyka on 07, April, 2016, 18:25:38
So the people have spoken and Eastern Europe has won!

Organisers have looked through the votes for which dates would work and travel and housing costs in a shitload of eastern european cities, so here is the final information!

There are some things that will be slightly different due to us having to rent a place to have the BBQQ, so this year we will be asking for a sign-up fee to cover the apartment rental for two nights for all the peoples! We are aiming at having a place in or close to the city centre so we can go out and drink at bars and stuff. The price listed comes from a lot of time surfing airbnb :)

Date:           August 5-7
Place:        Krakow / Budapest
Sign-up cost:    250-300SEK (about 30 euro)


So basically you get to contact us to sign-up pm in forum or through fb and deposit money in our accounts so we can rent an apartment. Living costs are roughly equal for both Krakow and Budapest, so just vote for your favourite.

Since this sort of breaks a bit from the standard BBQQ paradigm we will add a final vote here. Now that the travel dates and place has become more specified you can vote between Krakow / Budapest and Ronneby. Ronneby is a standard BBQQ location without sign-up fees and with more flexibility (as in more than two nights can be done)

Also, due to the potentially higher costs take some time to look into possible travel arrangements as soon as possible, ideally before voting again.

IMPORTANT: If you can?t make it to Krakow / Budapest but could make it to Ronneby or you can *only* make it to eastern europe please mention it in the comments. Like I mentioned, we want as many people as possible!

Make sure to appreciate Zuleyka as she has done the brunt of the work. It is no easy task organizing the BBQQ and people should stop whining as they themselves are not doing anything to solve BBQQ this year. RAWR /Xan

Krakow has this place:

Budapest is apparently "..the cheapest destination in Europe to buy alcoholic drinks, according to new research by the Post Office."

Also, remember that big appartments rent out pretty quickly. So the vote will be over by next Sunday, and then if E.E. is still victorious sign-up deadline (including fee payment) will be the end of April.

Sounds good, was about to ask when we would have had to decide. Great job preparing this =) Looking forward to it

I won't be able to decide before the end of April since I don't know what my summer vacation looks like this year, does this disqualify me?  :trollgasp:

From voting, yes, from attending, no that should be solveable.

SO .. since the cat is out of the bag - For BBQQ this year we will sign up and pay the fee, but probably wait with booking tickets and such until we know how flyable I am. So hopefully we'll be able to attend! Also - payment info where?

Ok, so I suck and life got in the way. Let me work on this and I will update later today!

So, like I said before, sorry I have been so bad at updating.

Ok, so the big update! Unfortunately it seems that Xan won't be a part of the organising team anymore because of unfortunate working situations making it hard for her. This leaves Nathlin and myself, who are both unemployed and utterly poor. This has some consequences further mentioned below.

So, the thing is that I can't book anything until I have the money, and I don't want anyone to send money in case we can't reach the minimum for it to be worth it to book a big place, because sending back the money would be expensive and a hassle. So, my suggestion is that people who are sure they are going to the BBQQ (or at least cool with paying the sign-up fee regardless) and willing to wire the money to my account this week (take into account that it might be an international transfer, so your bank may charge you and my bank will charge me too, so certain adjustments would have to be made to the fee)  either facebook message me or send me a personal message through the forum. If I get enough signs by Wednsday April 27th I will send you all my account number and book the place, as soon as I have booked it I will share all the pertinent information so people can get their plane tickets or plan travel or whatever.

However, if I don't get enough people signing-up and pledging to send the money I really can't afford to book the place myself on the off-chance that people will decide to come closer to the date. Aslo, since I find it really stressful to keep on pushing the planning closer and closer to the date I will probably stop planning an Eastern Europe BBQQ if this is the case. Of course if someone with a less dire economy really wants to BBQQ it would be really awesome if the joined the organising team and bankrolled the apartment booking! Or if someone wants to take it over and revamp the whole thing, that's cool too.

If no one feels comfortable putting up the money or signs are insufficient or whatever, I'm still totally up for organising everything in Ronneby, so there will definitely be a BBQQ this year regardless of financials and early signs and whatnot!

BECAUSE BBQQS ROCK! ALL HAIL THE BBQQS!

Alright, that was all I had to say.

I'm on the other side of the pond during BBQQ so I can't attend  :trollcry:

Hope you get enough people to get things going!

Might as well post here too even though the info already reached the planning-boss, great work with all the time and effort you put in Zul!  :trolllove:
Me and Tharmod would love to visit Budapest/Krakow and have the BBQQ there but due to T's recent job success we won't know if he will be free that weekend untill later... so we can't sign up on anything yet but if he's free there's a chance we'll show up in Ronneby!

It's looking like I probably won't have the money for a continental trip.
