This sounds fun. I love trying stuff from around the globe. Is there anything specific anyone wants me to bring from Britain?

The schedule is up and the snack exchange will be Thursday morning in Conference room 5 from 10:00-13:00. http://www.eurofurence.org/EF21/schedule/events/761.en.html


I have not been to the Estrel before so I don't know the size of the room, but both for space and practical reasons, 1 country 1-2 table(s), so prepare to be seated with your fellow countrymen whether you planed to or not.
It's also nice if you bring a flag or something else to identify yourselves with for the people dropping by :)

Also keep health and safety in mind when it comes to items needing refrigeration. Do not bring food you are not absolutely sure is still edible after being transported to Berlin.

This sounds like a great deal of fun!  I'm trying to think if there's anything I can bring from the US (that I can have in my luggage.)

Twinkies!

Very well then, I shall endeavour to bring as many twinkles as possible in our luggage from the US.  (How many attendees are we expecting at this soiree?)

Not sure. At EF 19 we had about 20-30 persons visiting our Norwegian table, but the con has grown since then, and we got a much larger time slot.

Hey everyone! I'm so happy to hear that there will be a snack exchange again this year! Last year I made a bunch of templates for signs that you can print out and bring to put with your snacks. The original post is here but I'll just copy the entire text below. The links should all still work, let me know if there are any issues!

---

I am NOT the organizer of this event, but it IS one of my favorite things at the whole con! So I wanted to help a bit with making some printable signs that you can bring if you plan to hand out snacks.

I should mention that I got this idea from Tifou, who brought incredibly neat self-made signs least year with maps and everthing showing exactly where in France the cookies he brought originated from.

There are two types of signs:

This first set are simply signs showing the country. It would be awesome if each table has at least one of these! I have made signs for each country of which I am aware that people attend or have attended EF and/or have been represented at the snack exchange before. If your country is missing, I'm sorry! Just poke me and I can make one for whatever country or region you'd need. I have put these all in one big PDF, so when printing just select the page(s) that you need.

-Click here for a pdf with all the country signs- 1.2mb
-Click here for a country sign odt template- 12kb

The second is for individual items. There's space for the snack name, country and a short description. Especially useful for some certain countries *cough* that like disguising their candy as sweets only to put ammonium chloride on the inside XD
I have a pdf that you can simply print and write on, and an odt that you can edit in various programs before printing.



-Click here for the pdf- 9kb
-Click here for the odt template- 15kb

And lastly, here's a zip file with a whole bunch of country flags (gif) that are free to use.

-Click here for the flags- 6.2mb


I hope to see you there!

I plan on attending as well. 
already did some shopping, although I don't know if I'll be bringing some unique sweets or that the other dutchies brought the same (pff who cares there's never enough stroopwafels anyway, and no.. I will bring other stuff too)

Sooo sorry I missed it.... I didnt expect quite how much partying EF involved and how late it went... so a few lucky furrythings got some of my TimTams, Monte Carlo's and chocolate fish(the otters seemed to really dig this idea)
