tata!  :D
for me, both dates will work.
and actually, i think a weekend will be better because we have more time to do stuff.
and just for a day to paris looks odd to me.
perhaps we could establish some sort of workshops? or would that be too much, and we just hang around?

Things to Consider for a Gathering:
Sleeping Arrangements and Price (total, per person, and who will upfront it)
Food (Provided, Free-for-all, potluck style, buy ingredients and cook there)
Price of going covering those two things.
Ease of Access.
Location and Directions for those out of Country (in this case) who want to go.

Example:
The 2014 Jedi Gathering
Arrival Day: June 27th After 3pm
Event Day 1: June 28
Event Day 2: June 29
Departure Day: June 30 Before Noon

Michigan (USA)
Camp Address:
Skyline Camp and Retreat Center
5650 Sandhill Road, Almont, MI 48003
website: www.campskyline.org/

Price:
Adult $140
Children (5-10) $75
Toddlers (0-4) Free

Registration Fee: Yes. There is a Mandatory, non refundable Registration Fee of $40 by 2 - 1 - 2014. (February Second of Twenty Fourteen) The rest of the Gathering fee $100 will be paid at the door.

What is your money paying for?
- Lodging - The Lodge has 31 rooms, a kitchen, meeting hall, bathrooms, Linins, Wifi....
- Meals (Food)
- June 27 Arrival - Pot Luck
- June 28 - The Camp will be Catering for us ? Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner + Snacks
- June 29 - The Camp will be Catering for us ? Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner + Snacks
- June 30 - Fend for Yourself
- Swimming! Yes! They have a pool!
Workshops:
I would recommend a more free-flowing and organic Gathering. Planning workshops and schedules to the letter leads to disappointment, frustration, and something inevitably not getting done. Instead keep times open and allow for workshops to develop on their own. Meaning if you are talking about meditation and have a cool technique you want to share, gather everyone who wants to practice. Self-Defense, Yoga, a fun Jedi game. Whatever. If a person really wants to teach (or lecture or whatever) something (limit one workshop per person) have them get in touch with the organizer and that way you'll have a couple workshops lined up. But won't have the whole weekend scheduled.
Remember - merely a recommendation. Not my rodeo don't take my word as gospel. Everyone runs a Jedi Gathering differently. Plus I am American. What the hell do I know about European Jedi. :3

Overall - just seek to have as much information available to all those interested as possible. When they need to sign up by. Pay whatever fees by. And all that. I am rooting for a successful Jedi Gathering.  =D

Jedi Macleod said : "What the hell do I know about European Jedi."

Well , when we meet up its awesome , before anything else we want to set a date , then we figure out where everybody sleeps , some want to sleep in one building ,others prefer to book an airbnb and meet up with Jedi when they want , others bring their whole family and some ( me ) turn up at their brothers doorstep with 4 other hungry Jedi ( true story loll )

So yeah i dont think we are that different from American ones hehe

Ow and its Paris , when you hungry every corner has a food shop loll

Very cool. So as I mentioned, I can provide a meeting space as large or small as we want.

As for a place to stay, do we want to share an airbnb or some other option? I get a discount on ceertain hotels via my University, but they still can be a bit pricey.

As for activities, I'm all for an informal gathering, but I'm curious what you guys (and gals) would like to see this look like?

Also, apologies for disappearing for a bit, had some major issues to attend to that took my free time and focus away!

Yes , seeing as this is our first Jedi Gathering together it will be about getting used to eachother and getting to know eachother , i find from experience that the time goes by very fast by just talking , enjoying the scenery and eating together , if we meet at the Library and go for a walk from there we can always decide and plan what we do the next day , maybe thats in idea

Bart and i will be coming by train to Paris on Saturday 11 nov and arrive around 13.00 hr in Paris North , we leave around 5 o'clock the next day 12 Nov , this will give us a day and half , because of work and university we cannot stay 2 nights ..

Lets start a list of people who are going to attend now :)

Well Paris is not exactly the most boring place in Europe so even if we run out of conversation there still is the Eiffeltower and a few good pubs !! Lets just meet up somewhere where we can talk and take it from there, but if anyone has something else in mind , please let us know. :saber:

Ow i just realised that some might stay over in Paris , Bart and I will only be there for the Saturday ....

We really need to know soon who exactly will be when in Paris =D

:hello:

So its a bit more than a month and we have our meeting in Paris , its been suggested to meet up at the Gare St. Lazare , this is very near to the University , maybe Wrrphoto can show us around the University? There are some awesome landmarks in that Arrondisement and a gorgious Synagoge nearby etc . so lots to talk about. Nearer to the date we can confirm the exact times of arrival of everyone. So we can meet up at Gare St. Lazare.

Confirmed participants :
Wrrphoto
Twigga +1
Bart (Aqua)
Marta ( Amyntas)
Brian ( Brick )

Still to confirm ?
