Yay! :grin:

So, are we staying at a place that actually has wireless this time? And that actually serves breakfast without charging extra for it? And with a decent loungeish area where we can build? :tongue:

Holy mother of God!!

I´d say you have to lurk around here to get a clue of what to expect.
There have been a few events in Billund before, so you can check those out.
But beeing to all  :hmpf:  events, I´d say Billund is by far the best one!

Can anyone confirm for certain that the German annual passes (the super duper all inclusive Magic Merlin versions) will actually work in Denmark? I can't find anything on the legoland website to confirm this although I see that the ordinary annual pass allows one entry into Billund.  All the posts seem to assume that the Merlin passes can be used outside Germany. This might be a little odd if annual passes for each park are different prices. As the event covers more than one day a single entry only would mean people would need to get a Billund annual pass also. Its late so maybe I've missed the small print somewhere.

I have no idea  :wacko:   Good question though  :grin:
But what I understood from the good Doctor, it was going to work in Billund as well.
But I´ll wait for a better answer for someone that knows more about this.

My German nis not so good, but it looks like it is okay! Maybe one of the german-speaking eventies can confirm this?

Looking forward.

I´ve had a "normal" annual pass in Billund 2008 and it worked for one day in Günzburg that year, too.
It has to be the same the other way round.

I hope to be able to attend this event. I expect to get the yearly entrance pass to Legoland next year. Not that I need it, haven't got it for 2009, but they are available really inexpensive for me :classic:  With this pass I can have one other person entering with me for free. But this will mean I will have to be there for the entire event, and I'm not sure how I could attend a 3-4 day event. The 13th is my birthday (and holiday in Denmark in 2010), 14th I think is a working day, but as I'm placed in Techhouse, I'm not that far away from the event. But if I will join you all, I might drive home each night to sleep.
I am willing to check if I could do some talk on how we work in Billund, engineering the bricks. If that could be of interest, I could discuss this with Jan Beyer and my bosses.

That sounds really good Front.
If you work on the friday, and not take that day off, I think that will be the day where we will meet up with Jan B.
I have sent him an e-mail, and got an auto answer that he will be back on tuesday.
We are really out in good time this year, and the efforts will be to make this one to the best event so far ;)
It would be really great if you can take some time to talk to us if that will be ok with J.B. and your bosses.
Lets keep in contact to see where it lands.
Then take it on PM with me please ;)

One of the efforts are: I´m NOT responsible for accomodation next year.

What could go wrong then any more? :grin:

Please respond to this the once thinking of going to the event!

Got a mail from Jan Beyer today saying that the dates we choosen is not so good. He thinks since the thursday (13 of May) is a hollyday, he will most certanly be free on the friday (14 of May for those who didnt get it) as well. He was wondering if we could pick new dates?

What do we think of this?
I think we really should try to stick with the dates, and see if we can work around this.
Jan could just lend me his axxess card and keys, and tell us where we can´t go. Right?  :grin:   :wink:
Where is "Ze Negotiater" when I need him...

You did a good job last year Holo. Not your fault that there was a bit of confussion.
Everything got cleared out... eventually ;)

I still prefer the dates chosen around ascension day.
It´s easier to get a day off work when there´s a friday inbetween a celebration day and weekend.
For me it means some operation sites are closed on that particular friday and more of my colleagues can get that day off.

Of course I can take leave-days in another week, but then I have to keep in mind that
a) I will have to take one more leave-day for the same 4-days-event (without having more fun). :hmpf_bad:
b) maybe there´s another colleague of mine who wants to make vacation on that period
no good opportunity in my opinion.

And to be honest: I´m not attending for the park first and foremost but for the eventees. :cry_happy:
So may the park be crowded - I don´t mind.

For special reasons, I cannot attend if the event takes place from the 13-15th of May.
I'd love for the event to happen earlier...

Morten prefers 6th-9th of may, so does KimT.
I wanted to stick with the old date.

I think Kim's "special reasons" weigh more than my objections. :look:
So let it be earlier for heavens sake. :classic:
