It is confirmed:

we will have ourself a wikiend of live jamming on the western border of Germany:

from Thursday, 29th May 2014 to Sunday, 1st of June

we will be meeting in a small village called

Urft ([url=https://www.google.de/maps/place/Urft/@50.5087923,6.5780883,15z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x47bf754b38e5d6d5:0xa2760fee1ebf2e0]google maps[/url]), about 60km west of Cologne, Germany.

The place is a youth hostel, which is across the road the train station Urft / Steinfeld, on the well used Cologne-Trier railroad.

Interested people who would like to spend a night can do so at the youth hostel for either
18,- € a night (no meals)

It would be nice if you would give notice here if you plan to come. If any help is needed as far as getting here is concerned, feel free to contact me.

Also, it would be cool if you could try to form communities when driving down, and we should talk about who brings what as far as instruments and amps will be needed.

So far, we'll have a medium PA + good mixer + microphones, a drumset, a piano (thats in the hostel, I didnt check the tuning), upright Bass and my Alto-Sax at hand.

I am looking forward to this! Who is in?

*********** Added on 28th April: *****************
Well, I am very happy so many people are coming! Now we need to get organized a little bit, so I can prepare things and communicate with the hostel.

1st: Catering
Some members are planning to have a cooking session in the self-caterer kitchen that is available,
there is a take-away place offering pizza and the usual mix of turkish / german foods in walking distance, the next supermarket is a 10min drive away, and the hostel has a barbeque place.
Those opting for the self catering should open a thread for organizing that, I'd suggest.

2nd: Drinks
Drinks will be available but must be paid seperately from the hostel cost. Since this is not a commercial event, bringing your own is absolutely fine as well.

3rd: Beds / Day-Visitors
I need to keep an overview how many beds to book for each of the nights, and a rough count how many people will be present to plan the beverages needed.
If you plan to visit without sleeping at the hostel, it would be nice if you'd be willing to make a small donation on entry to help fund the facilities.

How to go ahead:
If you plan to come, please enter your wikiloops username in the doodle calendar that suits your plans. I will reserve the beds for the whole group, so the hostel does not bother with individual requests - you will have to pay the hostel cost on arrival if you are spending the night.
Entering info into the doodle calendar does not require any registration or email - just give your user nickname.

4th: Transfer

I have prepared two more calendars for those coming in via Colgne / Bonn airport, so we can keep an overview and people can travel on together or be picked up at the airport. Please enter your arrival and departure times in the lists here:

- [url=http://doodle.com/rvixdi85gkz4ma5f]Cologne / Bonn arrival schedule[/url]

- [url=http://doodle.com/ru8645wy6wbb5k2y]Cologne / Bonn departure schedule[/url]

If help is needed organizing inner-German travel, contact me by PM! There are several tricks to save money, especially with the railways, so dont hesitate to ask.

5th: What to bring along?
As common in youth hostels, you should bring your own bedsheets if possible. Alternatively, a set of sheets may be rented for an extra fee from the hostel.

*** edited on May 5th: ****

Removed the "hostel + catering" booking option since all who entered the calendar so far are going for the self-cooking option!

If you have not entered your name to the calendar to book yourself a bed, please do so before may 15th, so I can make the final arrangements with the hostel!

Count me in as well, I'll try and bring a bass amp, some modeling pedals, at least one bass, and (if it all fits in the car) a clonewheel organ.

This is when it really sucks that there is no transporter yet (as in Star Trek). It's a long way from California to Germany! You guys have a great time, won't you? I will be there in spirit.

What a nice idea! It´s a pity, but on this weekend there´s a triathlon-event in "Vierlanden" with my sports club. I´ll think of you and your music while fighting for seconds on the bike.
I´m sure you´ll have a great Wikiend and hope you´ll make a small vid of this event!
