THE INTERNATIONALE: Prague Meetup 2018

Unread postby George » 22nd August, 2017, 4:27 pm

PRAGUE 2018

Discussions of a GTF Meetup in Europe have been around for sometime, coming to a head at the Christmas of 2015 with Rene and Brenden's invitations to join them in Koln, opened to GTF and GFO alike. Whilst this meetup may not have gone ahead, I am proposing a much-deserved holiday to the Lad's Capital of Europe: Prague.

Image


When?
Ideally, for as many people as possible to enjoy this possibility, I propose the 3 nights during the first week of August 2018. This means as many people as possible will be on breaks and holidays. There is not an official cap on how many people can come, but it will have an impact on price.

How?
The proposal is simple: we can rent 10-man apartments (or even hotel rooms, lets be honest) and stock up on wine and food for 3 days of touring across Prague. The aim is to keep this is inexpensive as possible. If people do not wish to stay for the full 3 days they're welcome to pop into Prague for a day and we can have a meetup with them.

Who?
Any of us. So far this has been open to us, but if attendees wish, I'd be happy to open this to members of GFO also. This is entirely at our discretion of course, and the main aim here is the comfort and wishes of members attending.

How Much?
Of course, transport costs will differ for everyone, depending on where you're coming from. However, a quick search has returned 5-10 man apartments in Prague that'll cost between £40-60 per head for 3 nights (prices subject to availability, booking time, number of attendees and conversion rates). Factor in the cost of food/drink/other expenses and this holiday shouldn't be bank breaking, but it certainly will not be for the weak-of-wallet.




I really think this could be a great opportunity to finally go to the continent and do something different for a change, without forking out several thousand pounds to do so. This also opens opportunities to our European users who have otherwise struggled to afford flights into London, and grants a chance for get-away like no others before.

If you're interested, please say so below, and whether you'd want to stay for the full 3 days or simply drop in for a day or so. Please note that apartments may rely on using sofa-beds to meet the "10 man" figure. Obviously, the size of the apartments are subject to the number of us who attend, but please bare this as a possibility.

[Reveal] Spoiler: Deadlines
8th December: Closing date to register interest in attending. After this, the number of interested will be counted, appropriate accommodation will be scouted, and the true cost will be established.

3rd February: Closing deadline for those who are attending to forward on payments for accommodation to allow for it to be booked.

August: The Meetup

If I can plan something I could take a trip to Prague at the same time with some friends and meet up. I'd love to meet some of you ^.^

I'd love to go but I'm not sure how I would justify a trip to Prague to my parents...

As has been said, in 6-9 months things may be totally different and it may be possible. You never know

To be fair I said it was unlikely for the last month and never committed to your little meetup yesterday :keke:

As much as I detest a meetup that has anything to do with George, I will actually be that part of the world around the time of the meetup. So if anyone actually interesting attends I might pop up ;)

To answer a few of the above concerns: the first week of August is a provisional as it seemed most appropriate. If it becomes obvious that a better date works, we may switch to this, but I feel it is highly unlikely because of the complex task of finding a better date.

Secondly; whilst the official language of Czechia is Czech, I am told by recent visitors to the republic that English speakers are plentiful as the city is a significant tourist site. Failing this, I have been speaking to Jan, who is also interested, who says he may be able to lend a hand.

I have been to Prague a few times and I can assure you guys that communicating in English will not be a problem. If Jan and I manage to go, we can help you out with that too, as Polish and Czech are so similar, we can speak our mother language and will be understood. Communication will be easy, don't worry :P
