Sarpsborg, Sunday August 25th, 2019 - Nordia 2019


CITY/REGION: Sarpsborg, Østfold, Norway
DATE & TIME: August 25th
MEETUP PLACE: Quality Hotel Sarpsborg, 11am

The last weekend in August will see Sarpsborg hosting Nordia 2019, a Nordic stamp exhibition which will be the biggest of the year in the Nordic region. You can read about it here: http://nordia2019.no/

We are planning a trip to visit the exhibiton where there will be various interesting items on display as well as for sale. We don't know that there will be postcards for sale :D but we are planning to create a stamp-themed meetup card for the occasion. KAS will exercise her mad skills as a designer and come up with something brilliant for us :)

The exhibition will take place at Quality Hotel Sarpsborg which as we understand it is not located centrally in the town, but rather along the highway 3 kilometers outside the town center, so we are planning to drive down from Oslo. Currently one car with room for 4 passengers + driver is available, we are hoping to arrange a second. More info about this will follow. Of course it is also possible to make one's own way there and meet up with us at the hotel. This is being posted now, before we have hammered out all the details, to let interested parties know that this is happening so you can save the date ;)

If you are interested in attending this meetup, please let us know in this thread.

The exhibition will be open from 10am to 3pm. The hotel has a restaurant, and its next door neighbor, the INSPIRIA Science Center, has a cafe, so it shouldn't be a problem to find somewhere to sit down and write postcards :)

KAS: It's your job to promote this on Facebook as usual. :D

I will promote my little head off :lol: and design my little heart out :frog:

And I plan to be there. :lol: Book me a seat in a car, please :) :)




Update July 25:

Meetup card! I have now ordered them and I got a really good discount! Price per card is only 2.4 NOK. (Round up your final tally, i.e. 1 card is 3 NOK, 5 cards is 12 NOK, 10 cards is 24 NOK.)

No problem if you haven't ordered yet - due to ordering intervals I have extras. So please don't hesitate to order (more) cards if you want them. :)

Payment: Vipps or cash to me at the meetup :)

Note that the card has no black line along the edges, that's just in the preview to show where the edges are.

By the way, there is a bus from Oslo that stops right next to the event location. Check out Nettbuss to the stop called "Sarpsborg (Lekevollkrysset E6)". It's a 1 hour 19 minute bus ride. There's a bus every 2 hours on Sundays. Also useful if you live somewhere along the way and not actually in Oslo. :)

I thought I could join you, but sadly it's not possible :( I travel to Mallorca Saturday 24th. Looking forward to my trip, but would very much have liked to join you as well... Have lots of fun! And welcome to Baguetta :) Hopefully we'll meet at another meetup. Maybe at Nordens Ark in Sweden? :)

The date is yet to be determined. But we are thinking of either Sept 21/22 or Oct 5/6. I'm pretty sure the Nordens Ark meetup will be discussed at the Nordia meetup ;)

Hi everyone,
I would love a meetup-postcard. I can send you two postcards of my city. I speak: English, Danish and French.

I hope you’ll have a lovely time in Sarpsborg!

Bye,
Thijmen

I would like to have 20 meetup cards if you kindly will sign them for me and hand them to Linda.

Just an other question, is the date changed for Nordens Ark again?? I am at work in Oslo the weekend 21-22th of September, and then it is my mum's 80th birthday the 5th of October!! I thought it was going to be the last weekend in September.... :(

Date still isn't decided. It won't be the last weekend of September because Tanumine has family obligations that weekend.

I have just learnt that I can’t come to the meet-up since I have to work that weekend. I am so sad over it.
I have ordered meet-up cards - can I send payment in stamps to you?
All the best

Oh no :( Sorry to hear that.

Payment in stamps would be fine, or you can owe me until next time we meet. I'm sure there will be other meetups :)

The event opens at 10am, those of us coming from Oslo will be there somewhere between 10am and 11am, but closer to 11am. I will be wearing a Postcrossing t-shirt and hopefully KAS will do the same :)
