Title: Is there a date for Eurofurence 19 yet?
Post by: LeTigre on 10.10.2012, 18:55:22
I'm an early bird with this question, I know^^

At my workplace is the vacation plan for next year ready to be discussed. So it would be awesome to have a date to work with.


Thanks in advance^^

We want to announce the new date as soon as possible. The reason for the current holdup is that we need to move the originally projected date for internal reasons, and communication takes time. We know that you all want to start planning as early as possible. We're sorry for the inconvenience - and we'll announce the date for 2013 as soon as we can.

Of course the EF organisation will take utmost care of finding a suitable date that does not clash with any of the ~1400 expected guest's personal plans. In addition, they will certainly make sure to have only the most fursuit-compatible weather during this time period, and end all wars to lighten up the mood during EF as a whole.

Please allow 3 days for delivery, as they're currently working to get cold fusion finally going.

SCNR,

There's no need to be sarcastic. We do try to avoid major clashes with other big conventions, and connichi definitely is one. If jashi had said "don't put it on my grand-aunts birthday", that would have been a different thing :)

As an example, I spended last year 1000 euros on the entire vacation, that includes train, food, money for ef and some other small things. If I would join the action, it even costed me MORE! EF is superfun but also superexpensive, please take that in account!  ;D

Yeah I know, I'm not an überrich fur.

1000€? What did you do that you payed so much? o_O
I payed 290€ including hotel, train (Intercity), food, EF ticket, EF shirt.
I live next to cologne which isn't that far away from the netherlands.

Compared to other ways of spending your vacation, yes. But compared to other large conventions we're not to bad.

Like I said, I paid everything! From food to stuff to buy, to Eurofurence itself. And also the traintickets were paid from the 1000€

Correct. This and the EF from 2011 were the best vacation I've ever had!  ;D *sorry, went a bit sentimental*

Post by: Suicune on 12.11.2012, 02:12:49
Yeah, it was great. Half of my mind is still on the EF :D

Like I said, I payed 290 for the same stuff. The most expensive part was my hotel with 100€.
I just can't imagine how you get up to 1000€, just if you would have payed for a 2nd person

I have nearly everything planned for next year
Everything I have to do now is to make a new fursuit.. I sense a lot of work.. And i'm the laziest person ever.. x_X

Thank you for announcing the date for next year ! I can´t wait for the convention, last year was just amazing. My mate an I are still enthusing over it ^^

Oh and.. I actually managed to spend 1000 to, but with everything included for 2 Persons, and quite a bit I left at the Artshow and the Dealers Den.. and the Piano bar... I guess there are quite a few side expenses you could count in, but they are no must to enjoy the con with less for sure ! So no worries no need to spend a fortune to pass a great time ^^

How much money is spent for EF? Well.. the 290 EUR you see there are pretty lean I think (180 Euro for Con and hotel, train is about 60 Euro with return ticket, if you book early enough... 50 Euro food & drink for 5 days), whereas the 1000 EUR on the other hand is pretty much.

For comparison: I have no real value for the food, so I estimated 20 Euros / day, which ist still okay (Truck Stop on travelling days, 2x Restaurant, 2x Maritim-Burger/ClubSandwich; + Breakfast + occasional Muffin), real value might have been a bit higher.


So this together leaves me with 540 Euros.
I can't remember, how many drinks I had at the bar; got 2 relatively cheap things in the Art Show; one sketch + smaller things in the Dealers Den - so depending on consumption you can get way higher :)

I had to keep everything as cheap as possible. I had luck that my roomies friend gave me the link to the cheap but nice hotel. That one isn't listed on big hotel pages.

EF Ticket: 80€
Hotel: 100€ (wed-sun)
Train: 72€ (with train-card 25%), 8€ for seat reservations (wasn't necessary because the train was empty all the time.. -.-") - from cologne to magdeburg on IC trains (booked 1 week before the con)
Shirt: 15€
Food: 15€ (water, bread, salami, candy, mini-pizza (i had a kitchen) and bakery once)
Have to admit that eating the same all the time wasn't healthy, I didn't feel good saturday morning ^^;

It will be around 400€ next year for that stuff. My roomie for next year wants to stay in the con hotel ^^

But Im from Portugal, drive to Germany would be even more expensive than go by train, bus or airplane.

To go to the Eurofurence on Maritim hotel I have to catch a plane to the Cochstedt airport right? After I get there how I do to move to Maritim hotel? Train? Bus? Teleport?

What is the price of a room on Maritim in August? Can someone give me a list of all hotels where the guests can stay, places to eat and maybe to visit around the town?

It will be my first time travelling more than 1000 km alone and I feel lost very easy so I would need some "tech support" for when I get to Germany territory? Maybe call to one of the organizers, chairman or something similar?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Leor,

well, tl;dr :-), but I do support doco's answer. Spend some time and search this forum thoroughly, most answers will be clear after that. I suggest air travel may be the cheapest, not knowing where you live I'd suggest Lisboa-Frankfurt for starters, should be the cheapest. Maybe Interrail may be an option for rail travel. Best: team up with some furs and share a car. Roadtrip, yay! Or long-distance coach.
For accomodation check hrs.com, and google. On a budget: youth hostel (about 20 seconds from the maritim) or airbnb.de, if you dare ...

hugs

Ragear

Thank you for the tips/help. I probably go with one that was on EF twice (Daisuke Miles the green husky http://en.wikifur.com/w/images/f/f9/DSC_0146.JPG (http://en.wikifur.com/w/images/f/f9/DSC_0146.JPG) and other 1 or 2 portugueses and share room with a very good friend from Russia that was there in EF17 lol
So we go all together in car because is more cheap if we are 4 going in the same car tan go in airplane and later we aks for indications because 2 of us know some Deutch, not very good but is good enough to ask for directions.

ONE VERY HUGE MEGA IMPORTANT QUESTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! uncle kage aka samuel conway will be there?????

Ummm - Dr. Conway is a very devoted fan and friend of EuroFURence.  I believe that If humanly possible, he shall make every attempt to be there.

(Let's not tie our kindly Onkel Kage to something which - world circumstances being what they are - none of us would ourselves be able to guarantee, eh?)
