Hi all,

I desperately miss you all, the great weather, awesome food, laughs, dancing and great conversations. As I miss it all I am offering you one of the most amazing couches in London, firstly because its mine, and secondly as I live in the centre of London :)

I am thinking of organising a mini London Calling event and see how it turns out, does anybody have any suggestions on timing & ideas on things that they would like to do?

Hi Chandeep,

Are you sure you can put us all up? ;-)

Hugs back to you
Jacquie :-)

PS: Making a mini-event is a cool idea. I had the same for Salzburg and we are just discussing further steps ;-) Though we already have plenty of ideas for workshops and events ... ;-) Still we are not sure yet, how to organize it. Especially since we want to host it this year already ... lol ;-)

Dundee Calling maybe?

I thought by having a huge event it might be too much to handle and a lot of people that I will have to get involved to assist, as well as huge venues ... and in London the outdoor venues are generally not a good idea due to the changeable weather.

Lets start with a date that people can attend, I propose the following dates, if about 20 people agree then I can get on the organising steam wagon and start getting everything in place :)

8 - 10th October
15 - 17th October

Oh yes and a cool name would be good too, maybe the following or something a little better

"Chandeep in London Calling Vienna Calling"

or even better to avoid any confusion "Chandeep Calling"

Chandeep Calling sounds great :D :D

I'd vote on 15 - 17th October since i have my autumn break at uni the week after. In that case i could volunteer for the meeting and could also help out with organization - i have lived in Weybridge for 10 months, spent most of my free time in London so i know the city pretty well :)

Let me know! :)

Hi Kitti,

I just spent the last 40mins discussing with CS friends in London, Switzerland (Rahel), Germany (Kaja) & Bulgaria (Elena) and they thought it was a cool idea too.. so I have already bought the website name ChandeepCalling.com

It might be a crazy idea but I'm being spontaneous, and thats how great things always happen :)

As I am a Web Designer/Developer I will of course put a poll on their, but it is most likely going to be 8-10 October due to the weather staying as warm as possible.. but I will be democratic :)

...watch this space

It's only a suggestion but shouldn't you try to make a "non-weather dependent" :D event?? Since nature is so unpredictable..especially in the UK :D

The other date will definitely not work out for me - i'll most probably be busy preparing for mid-term tests :D

Anyways, what i wrote in my previous post still applies and i'll be checking this thread to see what you guys decide on! :)

Happy planning! :)

Well, especially in the UK nature (in terms of weather) is predictable - it's raining :)

But you're right - especially as it is autumn a rain proof event is maybe not the worst idea :)

If I can't go to a big vacation this year but split it up to a few smaller one - perhaps I can make my way over to London too.

My proposal: Not before March 2011 ;) You know why...

Obviously I cant participate :(

Or everybody should go to Budapest, i'll be living there in July, we could make an unofficial after Vienna Calling reunion!!!!! :D :D ...i'm serious!!!! :D :D

Kitti, that sounds great but is probably too short notice.. make a new post on the topic of the re-union and see who can make it. Which dates are you there?
