spug has agreed on ferrying ONE BOX of the already infamous high protein chocolate bars mentioned here:
http://www.veganfitness.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=16214

so if anyone wants it for £16, let us know.

All the best for the gathering everyone, gutted that i am missing it due to injury, would definitely been there otherwise. Sounds like a great weekend planned!

Expect to see a lot of photos and all :D

I hope everyone has a great time. Sorry that I cannot be there - lack of money, as ever, is the limiting factor.

I was really interested to take part in this weekend. All the more it's sad that it was seemingly not possible to respond my question about sleeping possibilities per pm. There was no reaction to any indication that I'd like to come with a friend. I got no information that gave me a sign to make more plans f.e. apply holiday. It's a pity.

Hey Flare, i'm really sorry. Bad Krypto :( :oops: :(
Please don't sulk, I didn't forget to reply intentionally :? You could have PMed me again... You have no idea how many things i have to organize and keep in mind and i really work a lot. Sorry! :(
Of course you are more than welcome!
And DP already posted links to youth hostels and hotels here. Our place is full, so i asked the AR group is any of the girls can host you, but unfortunately, no one can.

OF COURSE i want it!!!!
And of course i'll take the box as a fee from Spug for staying here :P

I think there will be photos and maybe even videos ;)
There also will be a newspaper article about it.



Okay, getting closer, here is the final announcement of the weekend's schedule (subject to change):

FRIDAY:
Arrival day. At around 20:00, we'll meet at Mama's Pizza Place, where they have some tasty vegan pitas and fries (sadly, no vegan pizza).
http://www.pizzaplace.de/index.cfm/fuse ... Order.Home


SATURDAY:
Plan was to go to the highwire garden from 10-14, but there are some problems. First problem: 45 Europer person :shock:
Second problem: i was too late to ask who is in and who isn't. We need to make a reservation for a group of 10+ people, because you have to have an instructor. Making the reservation on saturday morning would be too late. I'm sorry, i think i messed this up. Bad Krypto again.

10:00-15:00:
So we will do indoor climbing instead: http://www.klettermassiv.de/
I reserved a beginners course. The course is normally limited to 8 people, but i managed to get 12 people in :D
25,- Euro per person, including a two hour course, equipment and free entrance for the rest of the day.

15:00-17:00:
Food intake: http://www.jade-imbiss.de/ 8)

17:00-19:00
Training together: http://www.funsportskleve.de/

Problem now is to fit the thermal bath in.
http://www.niederrhein-therme.de/
It is an hour away from the gym so we'd reach it at 20:00 and be back at midnight.
There is a half decent bath only 15min away, but that closes at 20:00, the sauna is open till 22:00: http://www.gochness.de/

An expensive day all in all, so i think it's better to not go to Maoz in the evening (more driving) but cook together instead.

SUNDAY:
Strongman comp!
We'll be there at 11:15, the official start is 12:00.
I guess it will take at least three hours all in all, maybe a bit longer. There will be live music*, vegan buffet and prizes for the winners.
*(from CD)

I'm sure i forgot something :D

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Thanks again for organising.

May I suggest we skip that Saturday training session and go for the thermal baths instead?! :D

You may of course suggest anything you like.

But skipping training is a NO GO! :twisted:
:lol:

The VSGG was advertised with training on saturday and comp on sunday as the two main events and some people are specifically coming for the training session on saturday. Plus i've booked the gym for the time - no one else will be there but us.

I just hope i'll be able to move at all on sunday... :?
