Would you, Vienna Calling guest, like to organize something ??
Posted April 25th, 2010 - 8:45 pm by from Vienna, Austria (Permalink)
Dear Couchies…

Dear Vienna Calling guests, in less than 40 days, we will have our second “VIENNA CALLING” event. This will definitely be the largest event of the year – Starting from June 2nd and ending around June 7th : ) , we will organize: parties, games, tours, BBQ, workshops….and anything you can/would like to offer.

With this message, we are happy to inform you that we are entering the final stage – the fun stage : ). The main meeting pages are set and now we can officially invite you to fill them up: as a Volunteer, Organizer of an event or just simply attend the events.

So, the question again: Would you, Vienna Calling guest, like to organize something ??

Main meeting page at : http://www.couchsurfing.org/meetings.html?mid=37333

So, here we go:

For Organizers of Events/Workshops/… etc.
Anything you want to do: midnight walk, hug your neighbor, blow in the wind : ), count sheep : ) just reply to this post and give us your suggestions… events should be between June 3rd and June 7th and time is not important – esp. for blowing in the wind : ) kidding of course… but seriously, just post make your suggestions and the time and do not worry about the rest - even more people can organize one (even better, right?).

if you wish to just help around with the events , please sign in your name at http://www.doodle.com/w8u72vvp99e53dne - or post here again.

Zuli, Kira and me (see organization teams) are arranging a list of volunteers (including Organizers of sub-events) and will help you co-ordinate things…

Popular but still to be offered by someone are:

Alternative :cooking/traveling/
Free Hugs or Delux :)
Flash Mobs (Freeze… etc.)
Opera Visit (being arranged...)
Blow in the wind : ) can't find the location : )
etc, etc etc…


In addition to that, for already fixed events (see main meeting page), responsible are:

Zuli and me…
2. June “ Meet & Greet /Welcome Party” http://www.couchsurfing.org/meetings.html?mid=69995

Jun 3rd 4th and 5th - All BBQ – Bases (see main meeting page http://www.couchsurfing.org/meetings.html?mid=37333 )

June 4th - International Games at BBQ, Base.

I will organize
June 4th – Friday night out
http://www.couchsurfing.org/meetings.html?mid=69756 (the idea is to arrange bars that would represent every kind of taste… )

Stefan & Peter F.
June 5th – Main Party

June 6th – Brunch

Stefan& Zuli
June 6th - Lazy Sunday at MQ

we will add and arrange new ones, as we go

in short, if you wish to organize something, please reply to this message and make your suggestion… if you wish to just help around with the events, please sign in your name at http://www.doodle.com/w8u72vvp99e53dne

We also created a group just for this – so that we do not spam the others too much : )… will work on that later

It is going to be legen, … wait for it… wait for it… and with your help… dary

We look forward to working/freaking out/ partying with you

Hey Vincent,

Maybe more of a question (but also for sure an offer to help :), will there be a Salsa night on Friday as well? If not I would be very happy to help organize one (even though I really do not know your city I love this dance :)

i learned a bit salsa basic step...love to learn more...:)

sorry for the late reply :(

@Sinclair - as you saw, it all depends from CSers willing to organize such "theme".

We have about three "themes" at the moment and I am sure more will come untill the end of the week - I will forward the information ASAP and if you want, you could even organize it...

@ Vincent - NP - thank you for the reply, sure it must be busy times for you at the moment :0) You can see from my profile I help to organise a few events in Prague as well (including a couple at the Prague CzechSurfing 2009 event :)) so can imagine a little what you must be going through :)

Would be great if u could keep me posted and of course if no local Vienna CS person wants too I would be happy to organise the a Salsa event though I have only been in your city a few times during the day so would need some help if possible :)

Thanks once again then, good luck with the planning and wishing you nice Spring days :)

well, welcome to the group then :)

will add you in the group - easier this way. You can see the suggestions and post your suggestions as well :)

I am also collecting the e-mail addresses and phone numbers (in your case the last one prob. not needed) of each member of the group - in case we need to forward data, schedules, contact them etc.

so, please send me your e-mail address.

Hi Vincent,

Sorry, a little confused now, can I ask which group I should be keeping an eye on / posting too regarding the Salsa night suggestion?

Thank you!


Posted May 17th, 2010 - 2:39 pm by from Vienna, Austria (Permalink)

Well, I have been following all of them - nothing specific yet...

I am still looking for someone (local) who would contact the bar and give us some info (where, how to get there and how much(if) it costs..).

I will have more during the next two-three days...
