For all those who are interested in attending the Amsterdam SOD convention in 2008, I'd like to recommend that you also make every effort to attend the pre-convention activities.

It was on last year's Augusta pre-convention outings that I met many SODs people, and just having the shared experience with them of those pre-convention days made the convention ITSELF so much more enjoyable (I felt as if I was among friends I'd known for years, or at least a day or two!). Of course it will cost you extra, but it will be money well spent. Very Happy

Again, the Amsterdam people haven't paid me anything to say these things (a situation I hope they will soon rectify!), but you will get much more out of the convention and have a greater sense of SOD fraternity by getting together with other SODs before the formal opening of the convention on that Wednesday.

See everyone in 17+ months!

I might take you up on that. Won't know for a few more weeks what my work committments will be at that time, but I do hope to get there. We should definately arrange an official forum meet over there on one of the days at least. Great idea for a thread Rene, it shows us who's coming from the forum and whotnot. Whats a whotnot?

Funnily enough that's what Kay (who is from Germany) and I were chatting about the other day. I was surprised when he told me his english isn't too great. He can type perfect english in the forum so I assumed he could speak perfect english by tongue too. The language barrier won't stop us from playing kneesy earsy nosey and drinking beer together though Wink

How's your english René?

You can still put in an application. If someone cancels you can go in his or her place.
