#1

After the success of #efct16, #efct17 and #efct18, we will again go to Amsterdam in summer in 2019! All Fairphoners and other people interested in Fairphone are welcome.

We are now planning to book a hostel room: Likely a 6- or 10-bed room at ClinkNoord. You can reserve a bed in the room by laying down a €100 deposit. Once we get to (nearly) enough people we will book the room, so please reply if you want a bed!
The following people have already reserved a bed:

Accommodation elsewhere:

In any other case, you can reply here if you’re interested and we will add you to the PM about the schedule & accommodation.

Basic idea of the schedule: we’ll likely go to the Fairphone office for some activities with the team there, visit Amsterdam and another city yet to be determined, take a bike tour (with a visit to the beach if the weather allows) and much more!

Time and place: August 25 or 26 to August 31, 2019, Amsterdam!

Is someone interested in getting soldering skills? If so, I could organize a little workshop.

Definitely. :slight_smile:
Let’s start a wiki… …and here it is.


#4

I’m interested in this Community Trip in Amsterdam. Please keep me informed.


#5

Hi, I will invite you to the PM planning the EFCT because we haven’t actually taken much decisions yet.

Kind reminder, please let us know if you want to come as we don’t yet have enough confirmed participants to book a hostel room!


#8

Our trains are booked (VIE-AMS)! Now there is no way back! :joy:


#9

One more participant for a hostel bed and we can book a 6-bed room at ClinkNoord!


#10

I definitely want to participate. I live in Leiden, so I can just take a train to Amsterdam every morning.

As for other cities to visit… why not Zoidberg Leiden? There’s the beautiful historical city center, cheap boat tours, and as I’m a tour guide at the botanical gardens, I can give a complimentary tour to interested Fairphoners (not as boring as it sounds). Saturdays and Wednesdays are market days, there’s also a small antiques market on Saturdays, everything’s near the train station, everyone here is happy and no one is ever sad.

Just my two cents!

@rmf I’d love to do that!
Just to be clear: Do you mean happy happy or coffeshop-happy? :joy:


#12

I think you are overestimating the amount of coffeshops in cities that aren’t Amsterdam :joy:


#13

For such a small town, we actually have a disproportionally wide selection of coffeeshops here, all of which open at five. One is pretty much across from my house, and it always cracks me up to see the queue forming - an absolute rainbow coalition of stoner kids, manual labourers, well-off baby boomers, you name it. It takes all sorts, even when it comes to getting high.
