4 General Assembly 2014

Current registration state: 52 persons. very few from PP-FR (one), so there could be actually some more.

social events are booked.

Friday: Social event at café Marco Polo, near subway station Nation, for around 30 pirates (food available), from 20:30

Saturday: "Le café du Pont Neuf", 14 Quai du Louvre, 75001 Paris. Booked from 20:00 (but only for drinks). Room up the stairs, first drink will be more expensive (6€ bear/soda, 10€ whisky/etc.) then regular price.

Maxime: Catering: We have some kind of kitchen but no furniture so I advice to buy some plastic forks/knifes and plates. If we want to make sandwiches: Do we have a team? Shall I buy food to prepare sandwiches? If yes I can do it on Friday.
Gregory: I didn't get a definitive answer yet but I think that we can organise two pirates from somewhere. I could also borrow my big coffee machine and water boiler for tea. But we would need to buy coffee (grinded) and tea. Let's wait for thursday for the amount. I also bring the material for the Open Space conference.

Maxime does not have a button machine. Gregory owns such a machine and asks him very soon. We also need a plan B. (like silk stikers)

Gregory: I will be traveling by car and bring the office supplies for the open space conference (incl. flipchart paper, blanc paper, office markers, fine-liners, etc)

We need a printer, though.

TODO Maxime: ask around for a printer

TODO Denis: make a design for name-tags badges

TODO Gregory: print the voting cards

access to the room on Friday is from 18:30 till 23:00 to set up the stuff for the open space conference...

Jens Stomber is eager to help with the shopping on friday.

Wolfgang and Thomas will arrive early friday evening. Gregory and Robert with Angelika too (in a different car). Denis will be there from Wednesday.

TODO: shopping list.

The venue is available:

  • Friday 18h30 -> 23h
  • Saturday 9h -> 23h
  • Sunday 9h -> 20h
