Title: Last minute informations and questions
Post by: zaqrack on August 07, 2006, 03:23:06 PM
Dear paricipants,

first I'd like to ask some questions and if you are interested, please read below for some additional informations.

Arrivals:
I'd like to receive the estimated arrival times from the Hungarian participants, so we could assure that someone is in the aparment when you arrive. We'll pick up JTK at the airport at 8:30am on thursday, which means we'll be back in the worst case at 11am. If you prefer to skip the first day and come on friday or later, please inform me.

Weather:

At the moment it's a bit sad (though I like it a lot more than the summer heat :)). Colder than the average (20-28 Celsius), and rains are expected for the weekend. So bring some warmer clotches, not only your swimsuit :) Hopefully for the Kazincbarcika trip (or before) it'll get better.

Informations:

the flat is ready for the meeting, I have cleaned it from the first corner to the last (ok, the kitchen is still in progress :))
The original layout plan has changed a bit, the races will take part in the "third room"

I have tested the racing desk, 3 computers fit fine, though I think we'll only use two in that room: a main racing computer and the laptop for training. If anyone brings a laptop it could be the third one. You can experience the unique feeling of playing stunts under a bicycle, as one of the bike hangers is above the desk. :) Network sockets are set up for the two computers, no need to run with CD's from room to room.
Music(MP3 from CDs), TV, DVD, C64, PS1, a couch for 3-4 persons and a desk for foods and drinks will be all available in the same room, which means we'll have some great parties there :)

In my room the famous wooden stunts-box remains operational and on network, so track designers can just sit down, move away from the crowd and design a hell of a track. :) Or if you prefer to train alone while listening to music, or would just like to browse the internet or write a diary (JTK!!! :))- it's your place. It'll be also a room for chilling out and having some talks laying on my bed while listening to some music from my 11000 song collection - or from the one you bring with you :) We can also play some board games or play sector ball :)

My brother's room is also equipped with music and internet access.

About sleeping: Two people in my brothers room (quiet, much sleep), two in the game room (noisy or late sleep but close to the drinks), 4 in my room (2 on the bed, 2 on the floor= crowded :)) This will probably do the trick.

We'll eat in my room (where we ate in 2004), 8 people can fit, tested :) The menu is still in progress, and of course we'll select together what to cook.
 
Remember, our flat is only 63m2, it'll require some attention from all of you to have comfortable amount of space and an unforgettable meeting.

That's why I'll sleep in the hostel. Smaller crowd. And some bad experiences from 2004 - head in the kitchen. :)

And a question: where can we store the beer (and how many bottles) ? I guess we can't put more than 10-12 in the fridge and you don't have a pantry.
Title: Re: Last minute informations and questions
Post by: zaqrack on August 07, 2006, 03:52:25 PM
I made some place in the balcony

but even if you sleep in the hostel - when will you come? do you come with us to pick up JTK?
Title: Re: Last minute informations and questions
Post by: CTG on August 07, 2006, 04:00:22 PM
At 8:30 am? It doesn't fit to my biological clock. ;D

When will I come? I don't know exactly. It depends on the Slovakian beer trip and Akoss' arrival. But I'm flexible in this question, if you and the participants are out in the city then I can join there too. :)

I'll come with CTG.  ;D

It sounds so great! I can feel the WSM spirit in the air, enchanting me...
Remember that Dinmor won't be there until Sunday, so there will be extra room until then.
Title: Re: Last minute informations and questions
Post by: Usrin on August 07, 2006, 04:54:37 PM
I'll arrive on Friday afternoon, probably around 5pm. For weather forecast, you can check http://usrin.tvn.hu/weather.html (http://usrin.tvn.hu/weather.html) (updated at least every two days; made for Szolnok area, but Budapest or Kazincbarcika is not too far from here). :)

Dinmor needs only a half place for sleeping. You know where... :D

What I shall definitely do!

Or if you prefer to train alone while listening to music, or would just like to browse the internet or write a diary (JTK!!! :))

About sleeping:
I'd prefer the earlier-going-to-bed-room (as you might remember, at my age one soon loses all energy at the beginning of an evening...  ;D Anyway, we'll see!

I'm very excited to see you all (again) and have a good time, good food, good mood, good races, loud songs, to meet new community members, to drink lots of beer and just a little amount of P?linkas and - of course - to talk, laugh and ballade with all of you!!! Oh - and of course I'm looking forward to leave all you rookies behind in real races! ;D ;D ;D

I got 1 litre of p?linka, I'll bring it to the meeting.

Estimated arrival: Thursday around 3 p.m. (I'll tell the exact time tomorrow).

What kind of p?linka? Alcohol concentration? :D

Title: Re: Last minute informations and questions
Post by: Akoss Poo a.k.a. Zorromeister on August 07, 2006, 11:09:44 PM
The standard p?linka of my grandma's 'boyfriend'. Homemade, mostly from plum (+some apricot, pear), alcohol content must be around 52 vol. %.

About arrival:

If we do the Slovakian beer trip, meeting point with CTG should be: 14:05 V?c railway station (it's much easier for me to bypass Budapest with travelling on the Asz?d-Galgam?csa-V?c route, which is a very memorable route also, for me), and leave for St?rovo at 14:22. (In the evening, I'll arrive at Zak's with CTG together I guess.)
Is it OK? We'll discuss that on msn tomorrow.

If we miss the Slovakian beer trip, I'll possible arrive at Budapest East at 15:37.

Weather: 24-27 Celsius during the weak (12-15 Celsius at night), more or less cloudy, possible showers or thunderstorms, but no significant precipitation; from Saturday evening, again rainier like today, significant precipitation possible.

Oh you gave me such a nice idea!

I was in quite a bit of trouble for the main sightseeing day, as Szentendre is not enough for a day itself.
So the plan is:

We leave to Szentendre by H?V in the morning
Have a nice sightseeing, we eat some icecreams
then hop on the bus and go to Esztergom

have another short sightseeing there and then...

we cross the Hungarian-Slovakian border by foot, and visit a pub pre-tested by CTG, Akoss and Usrin
you have some bears, and try the world famous bryndzove halusky!

in the evening we return to Budapest by train.

most likely we'll do this on Saturday, but it also depends on the weather.

so, how do you like it?

If I can give you an advice: DON'T travel to Slovakia on that way, because you'll need an international train ticket, which is expensive (969 HUF for the route V?c-St?rovo-V?c, no discount for students), and can be bought only in V?c. And the railway station of Sturovo is very far from the town. It's much more simple and cheap to take a train from Budapest-Nyugati pu. to Esztergom with a 60 km students' ticket (or 50 km from ?jpest station). From Esztergom railway station, you can be in the centre of St?rovo with 30-35 minutes of walk. (Neither Sturovo station is closer to it!)

Another possibility for buying slovakian beer is Komarno. I think it's the same (or better) in time and maybe there are more big supermarkets (Billa, Kaufland).

Yes, maybe it's a better idea: travel time is just slightly less, but you only need about 15 minutes of walk to reach the centre of Komarno. Leaving from Keleti pu. can be also better for Poo. (And he can simply buy a 350 km ticket from Kazincbarcika to Kom?rom).

Or you can eat another slovakian speciality.

Hi everybody.

I will arrive at Ferihegy Terminal 1 at 21.10 sunday (tomorrow) night. Can I be picked up there? If not I need some info about how to reach the apartment ....

Please write something soon as I leave tomorrow morning.

I think the team (or a fraction of the team) will go to the Airport for you, that's 99,9% sure. Maybe Zak will tell you further information here.
Title: Re: Last minute informations and questions

Yeah, maybe. He's cooking, still.  :)

Hi Thomas

Zak will NOT be able to pick you, but he'll write you an sms with all the information you need later this evening (you are going to drive with a mini bus which takes you to Zak's place).
Looking forward to see you!

Sorry, that wasn't more stupid than simply saying "I won't be there" in the last minute to those who prepared a lot for a meeting - also for your pleasure. (Just imagine that other pipsqueaks also behave like you: organizing a Stunts meeting would be impossible in that case.) That wasn't more stupid than destroying a competition with ghosts (at least Alain was never proud of it when getting drunken). Etc...

It's not a pleasure for me if I get fluent insults from Akoss Poo and you.
Title: Re: Last minute informations and questions

That's right, bad Akoss and Usrin, don't say naughty things to poor CTG who would never hurt anyone...
Title: Re: Last minute informations and questions

In live I won't hurt anyone. Especially not at the WSM.

IN LIVE, you wouldn't, because you're too shy for look in the eyes of anybody you've problems with, or you would like to insult. Insulting on the Net, or telling things behind the back of somebody is much easier, but it's strange to see that you find it more fair.
Title: Re: Last minute informations and questions
Post by: CTG on August 20, 2006, 05:40:06 PM
Yes I insulted you many-many times on the net, right? Ridiculous...
Title: Re: Last minute informations and questions
Post by: Usrin on August 20, 2006, 11:15:27 PM
Where did I mention myself?
Oh, I know that CTG never insulted anybody on the Net, and never told anything wrong about anybody behind his back. LOL. ;D
Title: Re: Last minute informations and questions
Post by: CTG on August 21, 2006, 12:06:02 AM
Yes I used to insult a lot but usually I don't hide it. That's why I'm a participant of all flamewars here - because I like to tell what I feel/think.
Title: Re: Last minute informations and questions
Post by: Usrin on August 21, 2006, 10:41:27 AM
I like to tell what I feel/think.

So, why didn't you told us your problems directly at the Stunts Meeting? Why did you only post a "secret" message to Lise, and why did you disappear without a word?
Title: Re: Last minute informations and questions

Do you want to know?

If I say it to you or Akoss then it won't change.
If I say it to Bonzai Joe, JTK or Zak then they will simply say don't be a coward and come back.
I told it to Lise because she's the one understanding my problems.
