European Fibs Party 2006
« on: May 30, 2006, 10:21:39 PM »
Hallo allerseits,


der FIBS-Party-Wanderpokal sucht einen neuen Besitzer!




Nachdem der Pokal auf der FIBS-Party 2005 in Köln in die Schweiz ging, war die Planung, die Party 2006 dort auszurichten. Geplant ist die Party am 21. - 22. Juli zu feiern, allerdings steht der Austragungsort (Luzern, Basel?) noch nicht fest. Ist alles ein wenig kurzfristig, ich hoffe aber darauf, dass FIBSter spontane Menschen sind  B)

Haltet den Termin bitte frei und harrt weiterer Informationen hier in Kürze.


Liebe Grüße,

Hardy    :rolleyes:

Hi everyone,


as the FIBS Party Challenge Cup was won by Switzerland during the FIBS-Party 2005 it was decided to do the 2006 party there. Presently the party is planned for 21st/22nd of July, but the venue is not decided yet (Luzern or Basel possibly). It's a bit short-term, but I hope that FIBSters are very spontaneous people  B)

So please mark your calendar and wait for more information here to come soon.

Liebe Grüße,

Hardy    :rolleyes:

SMS-On-Short-Notice-Service

Ich biete wie letztes Mal an, kurzfristige Infos auch per SMS oder Handy bekannt zu geben. Hilft vielleicht auch, wenn man sich gerade verfahren hat, oder 2 Minuten zu spät zum Turnier kommt, aber sichestellen will, dass man noch berücksichtigt wird. Wer an diesem Handy-Service teilnehmen möchte, sende mir bitte per E-Mail seine Handy-Nr. Er erhält dann im Austausch meine Handy-Nr.

Ich bin die nächsten 6 Wochen unterwegs, daher die Mail an beide folgenden Mail-Adressen:

Hallo allerseits,

die Party rückt immer näher. Hier erst einmal eine kurze Erklärung des Turniermodus am Samstag, damit sich jeder seelisch darauf vorbereiten kann ;-)

1. Erst einmal werden 5 Matche (á 5 Punkte) im Swiss Modus gespielt. Die Paarungen in der ersten Runde ergeben sich aus einer Auslosung. Danach spielen stets Spieler mit der Anzahl gleicher Siege gegeneinander. Aus der ersten Runde ergeben sich 50% Spieler mit einem Sieg und 50% mit null Siegen. In der zweiten Runde ergeben sich die Paarungen also zwischen Spielern mit einem Sieg, und Paarungen aus Spielern ohne Sieg. usw, usw.

Das heisst also, dass jeder mindestens 5 Spiele spielt.

2. Die besten 8 Spieler der Swiss-Runde spielen in der Hauptrunde (Main) gegeneinander um den Gesamtsieg, die nächsten 8 Spieler spielen in der Trostrunde (Consolation) weiter. Beide Runden sind als KO-System ausgelegt (Single Elimination). Wer ein Spiel verloren hat, ist raus. In Haupt- und Trostrunde gehen die Matche um 5 Punkte, das Finale um 7 Punkte.

3. In der Hauptrunde wird auch der dritte Platz ermittelt. Hierzu spielen beiden Verlierer der 2. Runde der Main ein 5-Punkt-Match gegeneinander.

4. Die Wertung im Swiss erfolgt wie folgt:
a. Erste Größe ist die Anzahl der Siege, die ein Spieler in den 5 Spielen erspielt hat.
b. Wenn zwei Spieler die selbe Anzahl Siege haben, wird nach der Buchholz-Wertung unterschieden. Die Buchholz-Wertung jedes Spielers ergibt sich aus der Summe der Siege aller Gegner, gegen die man gespielt hat.
c. Wenn zwei Spieler auch nach der Buchholz-Wertung noch die selbe Wertung haben, und sich daraus entscheidet, ob man in Haupt- oder Trostrunde spielt oder ganz raus ist, so spielen die betroffenen Spieler ein Match auf 3 Punkte gegeneinander. (Dieses Spiel ist also nur notwendig, wenn sich hierdurch Platz 8/9 oder 16/17 entscheiden, die Grenzen von Main zu Consolation oder von Consolation zu ausgeschieden.)

5. Es gelten die international üblichen Backgammon Regeln, also mit Doppler-Würfel, Gammons/Backgammons zählen, die Crawford-Regel gilt. Im Falle von Unstimmigkeiten, entscheidet das Organisationskommitee.

So, das ganze mag zwar recht kompliziert klingen, wenn man es aber erst einmal miterlebt hat, ists eigentlich ganz einfach. Ihr werdet sehen.

Ich würde die Matche, insbesondere in Main und Consolation, gerne um mehr Punkte spielen lassen, aber erfahrungsgemäß kommen wir sonst zeitlich in Bredouille. Im Turnier bitte ich alle zügig zu spielen (ja, auch DU, erdbeere  :P ) und die Resultate mir unverzüglich mitzuteilen, damit es schnell mit der nächsten Runde weitergehen kann.

Preise gibt es für die Plätze 1 bis 4 in der Main und die besten zwei Spieler in der Consolation. Der Gewinner der Main erhält zudem den FIBS-Party-Wanderpokal, der auf der Party 2007 erneut ausgespielt wird. Modalitäten, wann der Wanderpokal fest in den Besitz eines Spielers übergeht kann im Beitrag "*** FIBS Party in Berlin: 21.5.-23.5.2004 ***" nachgelesen werden. Ausserdem hab ich eine kleine Überraschung für die weiteste Anreise.

Freue mich schon auf Freitag/Samstag. Bis denne,

Hardy   B)

P.S.: Mindestens 50% aller FIBSter sollten ein Backgammonboard dabei haben, sonst kriegen wir im Turnier Probleme

Hi everyone,

in a few weeks the party will start already. With this message I want to inform you about the rules for the tournament on Saturday:

1. First, all Players will play 5 rounds (of 5-point matches) in a Swiss mode . The first pairing will be decided by draw, in the next rounds, players are paired by the amount of matches won.

2. The 8 best players of the Swiss round will proceed to the Main , players ranked 9 to 16 will play the Consolation. Both main and consolation are K.O.-systems (single elimination), the player who loses a match is out. Matches in main and consolation are 5-point matches, the finals are 7-pointers.

3. For the main, also the third place is played for (by the losers of round 2 of the main). This match is a 5-pointer.

4. Ranking in the Swiss round is established as follows:
4a. Amount of matches won.
4b. If players are equal in the amount of matches won, the Buchholz-Value is evaluated. Buchholz is calculated as the sum of the amount of won matches by all opponents played against in the Swiss.
4c. If players are still equal after Buchholz, and this is deciding for place 8/9 (border between main and consolation) or 16/17 (border of consolation or out of the tournament), a match of 3 points is played by those players.

5. The tournament is played according the international rules of backgammon. Doubling cube is used, Gammons / Backgammons count (regardless the position of the doubling cube), Crawford rule applies. In case, two players don’t agree, the organizing committee will take the decision.

If all that sounds toooo complicated, its probably due to my poor english  The system itself is simple. You will see!

I would like to play longer matches in main and consolation, but I fear we will run out of time otherwise. I ask everyone participating in the tournament, to play fluently and report results immediately, so the next round can be prepared/started.

Prizes will be given to the 4 best players in the main, and the 2 best players of the consolation. Also I have a little present for the FIBSter, who had to travel the farthest distance to Basel. Additionally the winner of the main receives the “FIBS Party Challenge Cup”.

See you in Basel soon,

Hardy   B)

P.S.: At least 50% of all players should have a backgammon board with them, otherwise we have a bottleneck during the tournament

Since the tournament took a long time in Cologne and we almost got thrown out of the pub where we played, I suggest we might take up nutsch's suggestion of compulsory doubling the game after some 30/45 min or so of a match, with the cube still in the middle.
Just a suggestion. That rule can also be introduced only after the tournament director declares it may become late, while the matches before may be played in normal mode.
Cheers

You are right, I almost forgot. It became a bit late  :sleepey:

Either I will push the players more than last time or we cut the swiss round to 4 matches for each player.

The Danish Backgammon Federation has quite good Clock Rules. For a 5-point match the players have 35 minutes time. If one player is running out of time his opponent is rewarded with 2 points. If that decides the match, the match is over. Otherwise both players get 5 more minutes on their clock.  

Perhaps I will bring some chess clocks to keep control of the time ....

Making some preliminary flight enquiries - the ryan air option (£0.01 per person per flight) is clearly the cheapest.  The usual drawback applies - the closest they fly to Basel is Friedrichshafen, anyone got any ideas on how easy /difficult it will be to get from there to Basel - before I go ahead and book anything?  We are currently looking at coming on the 18th July and leaving 23.

Diane,
you may travel from Friedrichshafen to Basel at every other hour (13:04, 15:04. 17:04) in about 2 1/2 hours for around 30 EUR (~20L) one way. There are other connections including travelling by ship (Friedrichshafen is located at Bodensee, a very big lake bordered by Germany, Austria and Switzerland) and means of transport i've never heard of. Check http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en in english. If you buy your return ticket only in advance (at your home printer, e.g., you may pay less - down to 50%, second person pays less too).
Have a nice journey,
Schigolch

Hallo Cassandra,


wo in Basel?

It will be  at " Cafe delmar" it's a very newly opened cafe and they don't have a website yet! yes, it's a pity! would be nice if u can see how the place looks like, but I can assure you, it's  very cozy.

Here is the address: http://tel.search.ch/detail/d056bd56b2f5ab10

From the German rail station u can take Tram number "6" direction Allschwil and u have to get off station "Heuwaage"

From the Swiss rail station either u walk down to Heuwaage ( around 5 mins ) or take the tram number "10" direction "Ettingen"

Looking forward seeing you here  :D

samirah   :kiss2:

Hi diane,

... when do the hotel recommendations come?

I think samirah will compile a list soon. But I know that many (erdbeere, Paul_William, Schigolch and myself already booked the Ramada Hotel Basel.

Bookings can be done over their homepage: http://www.ramada-treff.de/

Although it's not cheap, it's cheap for swiss conditions.

Looking forward to seeing you again (and making some photos of your fingernails)!

Hardy    :rolleyes:

Here's the list of hotels in and around Basel!

http://www.basel-restaurants.ch/english/index.html

The venue is located in district 3 but u can take whichever hotel in district 1-8 and you can still access the place where we're playing easily either by tram or foot.

Cu soon!  :P
samirah

P.S. most  fibsters booked hotel "Ramada Plaza" if u want to book this hotel too please use http://hotel.de/ it's cheaper than booking it  directly in their site. http://www.ramada-treff.de/

ACHTUNG OHNE VIGNETTE

autos aus deutschland sollten
- in weil am rhein von der autobahn gehen, an der grenze kostets geld fuer die vignette
das ist eine ausfahrt spaeter als das autobahndreieck weil a. rh. (a5)
kurz vor der grenze, wo man nur noch langsam fahren darf: kleine, unscheinbare ausfahrt....
dann alles gerade aus und in friedlingen ueber die grenze...
- oder von loerrach/stetten/riehen her kommen

so und jetzt... wissens die basler besser ;)
ich wuerde ueber die dreirosenbruecke fahren...und mich an die entsprechende strassenbahn oder bus haengen...in richtung sbb...das ist dann auch angeschrieben


meint ihr, wir kriegen da ne ordentliche beschreibung gemeinsam hin?


SONSTIGE HINWEISE
(auch fuer zugfahrerInnen)

ausweis mitnehmen!!! (muss auch noch einen machen)

die schweiz ist nicht eu ;) und hat auch noch eine eigene waehrung. die heisst franken/rappen oder raeppli ;) und ist meistens in deutschland billiger zu kaufen ...

(achso ... salat sollte man auch keinen mitfuehren ... das kann boes schief gehen ;)

Cassandra,

Please be so kind as to make an English translation of your post, so that your English speaking only friends can know what you are saying.

Thank you,

For those coming with the car to basel I would suggest to just leave the car somewhere you´ll find it again soon as you see some trams. Basel is not a big city and has a good public transport net. A ticket for the day costs sfr 8.--

public transport

The Cafe delmar is in the middle of the center. From the tramstation "Heuwaage" it is just about 15m to walk. I dont know this cafe yet, so I will verify this 15m, maybe its 20m. Because of the mostly missing direct connection you go out of the tram at "Barfüsserplatz" and walk the rest (10 min.). The direct tram from the railwaystation is the yellow nr.10 in direction of "Ettingen/Flüh/Rodersdorf". For those who arrive from Germany can go out the train at "Bad. Bahnhof Basel" and take the tram nr.6 who will directly drive you to the "Heuwaage".

From the EuroAirport there is only one bus nr.50 to the railwaystation.

The Ramadan is at the "Messeplatz". From "Messeplatz" to "Heuwaage" its only 5 min.

At the "Marktplatz" you´ll see a significant red building, the town hall. At the right of it there is a kind of reception called "Stadtladen" for tourists can get a map and infos of the city.

A Taxi from the Airport or the railwaystation to the Ramadan will cost you somewhere between sfr. 20.-- and 30.--

Cassandra,
in riehen angekommen würd ich dein auto parkieren. du nimmst dort die Tramlinie nr. 6  richtung Allschwil. Tram Nr. 6 fährt über den "Messeplatz" (Ramadan, EasyHotel), den "Marktplatz" (im roten Ratshaus ganz rechts ist der Stadtladen, du bekommst dort einen Stadtplan und Infos über die Stadt) und fährt direkt zur "Heuwaage", das cafe ist gleich an der Tramstation.

Myself I´m from Basel. I´ll be on vacation from the 26th of june till 19th of july and not online regularly at this time. But before the vacation and after, the 19th, 20th and 21st of July, I offer to reply to questions concerning the where and what when you arrive in Basel.

Ich selber bin aus Basel. Ich werde im Urlaub verweilen zwischen dem 26. Juni und dem 19. Juli und werde während dieser Zeit kaum online sein. Aber vorher und nachher , dem 19., 20. und 21. Juli, stehe ich gerne für Fragen zur Verfügung welche die Orientierung in Basel selber betreffen.

gogul - your posts have been most helpful - I will be tracking you down for help with these hotels - as soon as I can confirm dates. I have to start jury service next week - and dependant on the case I get - I will have to plan my holiday around that.

Hello samirah,

when I first saw the treat, I did only overfly, happy enough to see it will happen in Basel. Now I read again, and... yes, you seem to live in Basel. :)

I´ve never been at the "Cafe delmar". I´d like to go there once before the party, if you like we can meet there?

We could see how to increase the FUN-level and try to manage an optimal EASE-level as well for this week-end.

Please be so kind as to make an English translation of your post, so that your English speaking only friends can know what you are saying.
She just gave some hints how to get from Germany to Basel. Only interesting for germans (and maybe dutch) and nothing which needed to be censored ...

ACHTUNG OHNE VIGNETTE

autos aus deutschland sollten
- in weil am rhein von der autobahn gehen, an der grenze kostets geld fuer die vignette
das ist eine ausfahrt spaeter als das autobahndreieck weil a. rh. (a5)
kurz vor der grenze, wo man nur noch langsam fahren darf: kleine, unscheinbare ausfahrt....
dann alles gerade aus und in friedlingen ueber die grenze...
- oder von loerrach/stetten/riehen her kommen

so und jetzt... wissens die basler besser ;)
ich wuerde ueber die dreirosenbruecke fahren...und mich an die entsprechende strassenbahn oder bus haengen...in richtung sbb...das ist dann auch angeschrieben


meint ihr, wir kriegen da ne ordentliche beschreibung gemeinsam hin?


SONSTIGE HINWEISE
(auch fuer zugfahrerInnen)

ausweis mitnehmen!!! (muss auch noch einen machen)

die schweiz ist nicht eu ;) und hat auch noch eine eigene waehrung. die heisst franken/rappen oder raeppli ;) und ist meistens in deutschland billiger zu kaufen ...

(achso ... salat sollte man auch keinen mitfuehren ... das kann boes schief gehen ;)
[For everybody and not just the Germans to find their way to Basel, I have been asked to translate these hints on how to get to basel, and have also been given permission by the original author to do so...]

How to get to Basel without buying a swiss motorway vignette
Cars coming from Germany should take exit Weil am Rhein to leave the motorway, which is first exit after the interchange weil am rhein, right before the border, then go straight ahead until you pass the border in friedlingen.
Then head for dreirosenbrücke (a bridge) and for sbb station. people from basel might add to these hints.

other hints.
take your id, switzerland is not the EU, you may buy their currency cheaper in germany.
don't carry salad - might go wrong :)

[i'll take the last advice most serious :) (der übersäzzer).]

Cheers,
Schigolch

venez pour bale! eventuellement evitez d´acheter une vignette d´autoroute suisse par venant via Lyon, Besancon, Belfort puis a droite vers St. Louis.

We can allmost forget public transport during the summermonth because of roadworks. There will be no tram between "Schifflände", "Bankverein" and "Heuwaage". But everything is in walkingdistance.

Während der Sommermonate verkehren wegen Baustellen in der Innenstadt zwischen "Schifflände", "Bankverein" und "Heuwaagekeine Strassenbahnen. Es bleibt aber alles zu Fuss erreichbar.

For german cities (and bordering ones like Basel) I recommend http://www.stadtplandienst.de/ .
Insert "Ort" (place, city) and "Straße oder Objekt/Ortsteil" (street or object/quarter) and press "GO".
Then at the left you can change the "Kartengröße" (size of the map) and the "Zoomstufe" (zoom level).

Stadtplandienst.de covers whole Germany and has more accurate street data than other services I know.

To all fibsters coming with the car, I really recommend that after you check-in in your hotel that you park your car on a "WHITE"parking area and make sure that it's  for free! (kostenlos) There are some of this parking space a bit out of the center, but since you'll get a mobility ticket from the hotel you can take the tram free of charge and just collect your car after the party!

Parking  in Basel is  a very EXPENSIVE thing ! I'm sure you can spend this money in more interesting stuff  than paying your parking   ;)

Drive well and see you soon  :)

sam!

From the central railway-station to the cafe "Del Mar" its five minutes to walk.
If you click on the map below:
when you go out the station you will stand at the "C" of the Centralbahnstr. In front of you you´ll see a park, the "Elisabethenanlage" and there you turn into the "Wallstrasse" and go down the stairs "Bollwerkpromendade", which will lead you direktly to the "Heuwaage" where you find the Del Mar. The map-drawer was a very nice man, house-nr of the Del Mar is 30.
Central Station to Del Mar

We´ll have the possibility to play outside directly at the Rhine-board in a nice buvette if we and the weather wants and go back to Del Mar after dinner.

CU then, looking forward  ^_^

Hi all,

as u can see on the list above this party will be very, very international!  :cool: and because of this I thought of making a sort of "exchange gifts". Meaning u have to bring "1" gift and this should be . . . .

1. something traditional, something that symbolizes the country where you live in.(preferably non-food)
2. max 20 euro ( if u feel like being generous . . .  it's also ok!   :P )
3. gift wrapped.

Gifts will be numbered and we will have a lottery. If you have some questions regarding this please feel free to ask me.   samirahkern@hotmail.com

Any more ideas to make this party as FUN as possible are very much welcome!


Thanks,
sam!

first: i was not able to say this all in english, so i did something in german, the rest i will translate soon.

hello @ll!

i like the idea with the presents.

but first time i heard about this, i didn't like this:
> 1. something traditional, something that symbolizes the country

so i asked me myself questions
- what (nonfood) is my country?
- what (nonfood) symbolizes my coutry?

all presents i thought about was something to eat or to drink!
and all of them represented not whole germany, only the region i live.

i talked with several people. there are two things i heard representing germany or beeing typical german.

in this way i had very interesting and good discussions and plenty of good thoughts and experiments about deutschland, heimat, schwarzwald, wein!, bier!, kaese, schweiz :), buergerInnen, sterne, symbole, grenzen, laender, welt, meisterschaften, geld, gesetze, visionen, utopien, konkrete, universum, freiheit, liebe, etc.

and maybe ... i found a present, that symbolizes my country in my way :)

but if i did not, i will in den wald gehen, den ich als kind kennengelernt habe, um dort einen tannenzapfen zu holen. das waere vielleicht das einzige geschenk, was mein (heimat-)land fuer mich symbolisieren koennte - ausgenommen meine sprache, aber die kann man nicht verschenken, oder?


thanks samirah!

That's the german translation of samirah's post:

Hallo zusammen,
wie ihr aus der Liste ersehen könnt, wird die Party sehr international! Toll! Cool! Wow! Und darum habe ich gedacht, daß wir alle eine Art Geschenketausch machen sollten. Das heisst, ihr müßt alle ein Geschenk mitbringen, das
1. etwas Traditionelles, etwas, das Euer Land, in dem Ihr lebt, symbolisieren soll (vorzugsweise kein Essen)
2. max 20 eur kosten soll (wenn ihr grosszügig sein wollt... bitte)
3. eingepackt  sein muss.
Die Geschenke werden nummeriert und wir werden eine Lotterie veranstalten. Fragt mich, wenn Ihr dazu Fragen habt. samirahkern@hotmail.com
Mehr Ideen, mit denen diese Party so schön und lustig wie möglich werden wird, sind sehr willkommen!

Hallo allerseits,


bin inzwischen wohlbehalten von 6 Wochen Seefahrt zurückgekehrt und kann mich nun so langsam an die letzten Vorbereitungen für die Party machen. Habe nur noch niemanden gefunden, der bereit wäre, meine Hemden zu bügeln  :(

Ein weiterer Teilnehmer hat sich fest angemeldet: mars  :yes:  

Denkt bitte alle dran ein



mitzubringen. Okay, es reicht, wenn ca. 50% ein Board dabei haben, aber weniger sollte es nicht sein.

Bis bald,

Euer Hardy    B)

Hi everyone,


I just returned from 6 weeks at sea and am starting my last preparations for the party. Unfortunately didn't find anyone yet to do the ironing of my shirts ...  :(

Another participant just confirmed his participation: mars  :yes:

Please don't forget to bring your



to Basel, if you have one.


Looking forward to seeing you very soon,


Hardy  :rolleyes:

english first:

hi all,

i know it is rather short notice, but i would like to join the fun. please add me to the list.

could somebody - especially the people that live in basle - answer the following:

is there a way to book a hotel without owning a credit card? if not, i might have to do it in basle on friday afternoon.
is it in that case better to get off the train at basel bad bf or at basel sbb? i believe the latter is the main train station?!

and btw: i don't own a board, i don't need it playing at fibs ;-) maybe somebody from basle could bring more than one??

hope to get to know you all on friday!

runnerup

_________________________________________________ _______________

und jetzt auf deutsch:

hallo alle zusammen,

ich weiß, es ist sehr kurzfristig, aber ich habe lust mitzumachen. bitte nehmt mich mit auf die liste.

kann jamend - vor allem jemand aus basel - folgendes beantworten:

gibt es eine möglichkeit ein hotel zu buchen ohne kreditkarte? wenn nicht, dann müsste ich das am freitag nachmittag in basel erledigen.
ist es in dem fall besser in basel bad bf oder in basel sbb aus dem zug zu steigen? ich vermute, dass letzterer der hauptbahnhof ist?!

und btw: ich besitze kein board, das brauche ich nicht um bei fibs zu spielen ;-) vielleicht kann jemand aus basel mehr als eins mitbringen??

ich hoffe, euch alle am freitag kennenzulernen!

Hi runnerup,


great that you are joining us. Unfortunately I have no detail knowledge about Basel. So I can't help you searching a hotel. Some of us booked a room in the Ramada Hotel. Perhaps they accept reservations by telephone without credit card? Just call them: +41 (0) 61 / 560 40 00

I hope that enough people will bring a board with them, so it should not hurt if come without.


Looking forward to meeting you soon,

hi hardy,

danke für den tipp. kannst du mir verraten, wieviel ein zimmer im ramada kostet? ich habe keine ahnung vom schweizer preisniveau.

wir habe uns übrigens im mai beim turnier in hamburg gesehen und kurz über deinen ex-berufsort rostock unterhalten. später war keine rechte gelegenheit, du warst ein wenig länger im turnier als ich ;-)

schöne grüße

I just arrived in Basel. Presently 34° Celsius. Much tooooo hot. A bit rain would be great but is very unlikely. So no furs required here.

To runnerup:
Over the weekend a room in the Ramada is 150,- CH per night. There are probably cheaper hotels here, but have no recommendation available.

Cu soon,

I just landed in Basel, and am hopelessly lost. No one speaks English and I'm having trouble communicating with the men driving the sleds with the dogs

It is on us to thank YOU, Samirah, for making this event such a special one. You were a marvellous host.
And thanks, too, to Hardy who was a great Captain of the battle ship aka. TD.

Hope to see you and all the others who made those days so enjoyable next year again. I am looking forward to this.

Thank you, fibsters, thank you, friends  :)

The cup still belongs to a "Schweizer" – Michael Schweizer  aka. michaelsw. In a thrilling final he won over Samirah. On the third place is Hardy_whv, and sidie on the fourth.

This was the most international FIBS party ever: South Africa, USA, Italy, UK, The Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany. The winners of the tournament are:



Congratulation!

I am working hard to put the photos online as soon a possible. Give me some more time.


Hardy .... thinking about a party in 2007  :D

Thanks for the photos Hardy. Looks like it was a great time. It's fun to try and create English translations for the German subtitles: i.e. 'Samirah finally notices that there is a crocodile under her table'

Hi Chris,

thats why I first linked to the german subtitled photos  :P  But meanwhile they are available in an english translation as well. I just hope, my "English" is understandable  :unsure:

But I know your German is very good! So you shouldn't have any problems.

Were you behind the camera all the time Diane ?!?
Helping people is tricky. Give help to anyone and he will remember it only when he is in need again.

I was behind padski in at least one shot, other than that - keeping well out of the way, as usual :-) My pink board takes a good picture though   ;)

It was a great party, with lots of lovely touches - especially the signed t shirts and gift exchanges (which reminds me - I still have a fridge full of lovely German beer to  go home to  :D  :D )

We are both very much looking forward to the next one - and seriously considering another London event - if I can find a suitable venue.

There will be no tram between "Schifflände", "Bankverein" and "Heuwaage". But everything is in walkingdistance.
yesterday someone in train told me the reason:
music in *casino* was too loud, so they put sandbags under the rails....
is this right?

The Casino will be replaced with a new and modern building, but the inside will remain, as the concert hall is classified as a historical monument. To avoid the disturbing noise of the passing trams in the hall they wont use sandbags, but 600 steelsprings (doingdoingdoing).
