15th September 2012 - 6th Swiss meeting in Lugano


Hello everyone!

The 6th Swiss meeting will be held in Lugano on September 15th and it's organized by me :)

There are still a few details to be determined, but this is the main program of the day (week-end)

Saturday 15.09.12
- 11:00 Meeting at Lugano main station under the meeting point (which is this sign), located on platform 1
- when everyone is there, we walk to the city centre for a first sightseeing and postcard shopping
- 12:30 Restaurant Cantinone for lunch and postcard writing/swapping/...
- After lunch, more sightseeing
- Around 17:00 (I guess) end of the meeting for the people who only remain saturday
- For the other we travel to Locarno by train (it takes 1 hour)
- You'll have time to check-in at the hotel and hopefully rest a bit (depends on what time we arrive in Locarno)
- 20:00 Restaurant-Pizzeria Lungolago for dinner and later enjoy Locarno nightlife (don't expect anything special...)

Sunday 16.09.12
by nice weather the idea is to do a picnic somewhere, probably on the lake, but I will decide only a few days in advance, according to how many we are and to the weather forecast.
If there is hot weather maybe it's still possible to take a bath in the lake (or if not, at least a sunbath), so I suggest to bring a swimsuit.
Anyway we will meet at the station, so there is an "avec" shop open on sunday and you can buy things to eat and drink.
By bad weather I still have to think an alternative...

Some informations for the people who plan to overnight in Ticino:
as the after-meeting on Sunday will be held in Locarno, it was suggested to spend the night there (but it's not a must of course).
This mean that when the meeting in Lugano is over (I guess it will be around 17-18), we will move to Locarno. It's about 1 h by train or 30 min by car from Lugano.
A few people already booked in Hotel Vecchia Locarno http://www.vecchia-locarno.ch it's probably the cheapest hotel in town...
If you prefer other hotels here is a special deal http://www.ascona-locarno.com/en/events/moonandstars.html There was a music festival in Locarno a few weeks ago and the hotels listed in this page offer a 20% discount if you have a ticket of this festvial (and I have some to give away if needed).

Andy and others,
I am really sorry, but Roos and I definitely can't make it... Roos is having health problems, and we don't want to risk that she has to go to a Swiss hospital in case something happens....and I will not be able to drive her and the car home since I do not have a license....

I wish things were different.... But it is just not going to happen :(
