Keeping aside family pipsqueaks (Manowar, Eddie Brother, La Popis) I met Paleke, Goyo, Gutix and Lukas. I thought the list was larger.

Nobody :(. Stunts meeting 2023?

Yes please:..

Let's organize one properly this time.
Amsterdam is a easy to reach location through Schiphol.
Is Berlin also good to reach? Or other cities?
Someday during the summer probably, or is an out of high season Saturday a better choice to save money?

Maybe we should make a topic with a poll for it..

Just thinking out loud..

A separate topic is a good idea. Let's find out who is interested. :-)
I agree. A new topic on the right place.

Two things we need to get an agreement upon.

I am in favour of Amsterdam. It is easy to get to from here. :-)

When: Perhaps one of the long weekends in the spring? We already have other plans for Easter.

Other preferences?

From my city, Amsterdam is the easiest accessible location outside Norway & Denmark, so there is a significant chance that I would join. But NOT on the Easter weekend, due to family plans and the usually super expensive tickets.

Hello Usrin. It's the same for me. The direct KLM flight to AMS is convenient. And yes, I also can't on Easter.

Det er litt morsomt at vi bor nær hverandre nå. Da kunne vi nesten fly ned til Amsterdam sammen ;-).

Maybe. More chance if some old WSM participants turn up, too.

I've never been to the Netherlands, not counting an autobus transit (1994, to GB and back, around Maastricht) and an airport transfer (2018, to GB and back, Schiphol Airport). So that is favourable. Spring is O.K., too.

However, it would be a bit expensive. With Flixbus, the return ticket would cost around 60 000-80 000 HUF from Budapest, per capita. (1 EUR=405-410 HUF, average Hungarian salary is around 250 000 HUF I guess). By car, it would cost around 200 000 HUF gasoline+highway tolls, not counting two transit accomodation in Czech Republic/Germany. More people sit in my car, less it costs per capita. I guess flying would cost somewhere between travelling by bus or car.

So let it stay: maybe.

It's often much cheaper to travel from May to early June and late August through mid-October. The weather is still relatively warm during the shoulder season, and you'll beat the crazy summer crowds. This is when we find the best international flight deals!

Yes, travelling is expensive. It's also not cheap to travel from Norway, but I should certainly not complain. :) The problem with flights is that you have to book well in advance to get a good price. The longer you wait, the more expensive it becomes.

I checked a random weekend in May, and for now a return ticket costs about 56000 HUF with Eurowings.

Hei! Har du flyttet til denne delen av Norge? :o

Guys. I think I found a convenient location for the Meeting.
Cafe chocolate on Schiphol Airport
It's behind security, so inbound travelers don't have to go through customs. And don't leave the airport.
There used to be City hopper flights that didn't allow exit from the airport. Those were a lot cheaper than normal flights. I haven't flown in a while so I don't know if that is still the case.

Anyway, it's a convenient location.

Ok, da er vi bare nær etter norske standarder. Jeg bor ca. 200km fra Stavanger. ;-)

Sorry for being dense! Is the idea that we meet there for a couple of hours and then fly back immediately?

I was more thinking about a meeting with 1-2 overnight stays. But of course then the logistics are more difficult. :-)

I think that is more fun indeed. But it will increase the costs as well.. I'm searching for the right balance in that.
So it's worth coming but still affordable for most.

I don't think it's worth flying anywhere to stay only for a few hours, especially without leaving the airport. If we really want something simple, an online (Teams, Zoom, etc.) meeting is even easier to arrange... A real Stunts Meeting has to include overnight stay(s) and also some sightseeing or other activity related to the host country.

Btw, I happened to play Stunts in Schiphol Airport in the KLM lounge, which is way better than this cafe, but still far from convenient for our purpose...

And although I have flown a lot* to AMS, I've never heard that the Cityhopper flights (=short-distance flights like SVG-AMS, typically with smaller planes than e.g. BUD-AMS) would be cheaper if you don't leave the airport. What would be the point of that?

*: Useless data about myself: overall 56 flights with departure or arrival in AMS.
