    Guillaume! Good to see you, been a long time

    Sadly AnE and I are in the same situation we have been for the past 3 years...no money and my health is still failing me so we can not attend this year. Really wish we could as it's such a great experience. Hope you all have a great time if it goes ahead and I hope next year will be a different reply from me. Wishing you all the best and fly high

    Too bad none of you is able to come - I almost forgot how stinkle and AnE look. Memories of guillaume are also fading... I really wish it'll be a big reunion next year!

    Right now I'm thinking about skipping this year, as we seem to be very few. However, it's literally no effort to me to pull off a meeting anytime - it's just up to you if you still want it.

    Put me on maybe, will have retakes somewhere in august and not quite sure what the drift will be with my holidays, but would love to combine it with gamescom perhaps
    IF i come, i could bring; TV, PS3, 2x DS3, Wipeout HD/Fury, Video Distribution Amp (1x component in to 5x component out, for hooking up to a projector for example), matrox mxo2 mini (for possibly capturing some races on video), PS Vita with 2048 + DLC, Wipeout 2097, PS1 MAYBE
    But yeah i don't know yet, will see how things go and update here

    Living not far from Frankfurt, so I think I can attempt aswell. I will go by car, so I can bring some stuff. Though I only have a PS3 at home... 2 screens and 2 controllers. But I can check if I can lend some equipment from friends if more is needed.

    6 people already willing to come, 5 more potential joiners - that's already big enough to become serious.

    Carrying all the stuff shall pose no problem to you - just bring what you can and in doubt leave it at home. Of course, bringing your PSP/Vita should be a minimum in case you want to play with others. Bringing monitors is more or less a bonus: I have one and as last resort a CRT TV aswell (wrong aspect ratio when playing HD), so at least a 1vs1 online game is already possible. More monitors just add more fun - if docfo4r brings 2 monitors we already have 3, which means a 3 player HD match is possible.

    The hostel's website is currently looking weird, so I'll phone them tomorrow or check them out just on location. See http://web189.102.hosttech.eu/w6/ind...t=fiveelements for information that was at least correct when reviewed 2012.

    I'm curious to meet new pilots. And old known ones aswell, of course!

    Update: I probably come by train but Frankfurt is round about twice the way (ok, the way is short ^^)
    So I could com for one day and take my Vita and some games (if I would be the only one who owns them)

    Hopefully somebody has WipEout 64

    According to the booking site there are already days when the price would be a bit higher than usual. So far these weekends (always Friday to Sunday) still have the lowest or almost lowest price:
    • 2014-08-01 > 2014-08-03 (week 31)
    • 2014-08-15 > 2014-08-17 (week 33)
    • 2014-08-22 > 2014-08-24 (week 34)
    • 2014-09-05 > 2014-09-07 (week 36)
    • 2014-09-12 > 2014-09-14 (week 37)
    • 2014-09-26 > 2014-09-28 (week 39)
    • 2014-10-03 > 2014-10-05 (week 40; side note: 2014-10-03 is a public holiday)
    • 2014-10-17 > 2014-10-19 (week 42)
    • 2014-10-31 > 2014-11-02 (week 44)
    That doesn't mean we cannot use another weekend, it just means you have to expect prices a bit higher than now (after all this city hosts a lot of fair and exhibitions, which inflates hotel prices always).

    Who's in for which weekend? I expect nobody who wants to do it off a weekend...

    Nope, weekend is the best.

    Atm I can't think of anything that would be blocking my weekend, so I am very flexible.
    About the monitors: Mind these are not TV screens, just normal PC monitors [my current Full-HD one and the other one is dusting out under the roof of the house, gotta check if that sucker is still working as proposed].
    Where do we guys go to eat and stuff? Is there a need to bring some food/water?
