    Exclamation Wings of Prague 2019 & 2020 - The Badges

    Last Year I missed an opportunity to order badges, so there is a chance to correct this. Are there enough takers for 2019 or 2020? Please, tell me if you want the first, the second or both. Deadline is 31/1/2020 and I need at least 15 takers (because minumum order is 25 per type and I do not want to risk more than 10 spare). One costs 200CZK ≐ £6.70.

    Sir, yes, sir

    Postage won't be big, it is a small package (story how postage for 15$ Duel in the Dark with postage 75$ will be told later).

    Unfortunately, there are not enough of interested players and I do not want to risk much with my brand new and shiny...mortgage. On the other side, owners of 2018 badge can be proud on it - it will be only one

    Sorry Dan but the answer is no much as I would really love to attend. I'm not fit enough to do the journey I' afraid. Can you post them to me or better still give them to somebody to bring back to collect at Doncaster. I live near enough to there to use the wife'e mobility scooter if I have no other transport! Or you could bring them to Doncaster yourself.

    You will be missed, Reg, believe me. It is fine you are from Yorkshire so at least Doncaster is not absolutely impossible. Hope I will compare my skills with yours there again (nothing sure, yet, still counting Family Points and if I would have them enough, I want to come [Kubajs also wants, by the way]).

    In general for "overseas": There are several possibilities how to get your badges on your shirt...
    • ...Reg's way - ask an fellow member (Tim, Paul, Kubajs, me etc.) to take them from Prague to UK - no additional costs.
    • ...send them by post (yeah, the one who brings you postcards, do you remember them?). In that case I will put badges into bubble foil envelope and send it directly to you. I guess this will be the possibility for US and Canada mostly. I will ask you about sending the money after dispatch of your letters to let me calculate the final postage. I do not expect much - it will be a letter under 100 g.

    I am really trying to ..., but ...
    2 problems to overcome:
    * Hotel Mars has no room available for 23/4-26/4, might try the Hotel Eden which has rooms available for these dates, nearby, but twice the price
    * find a co-driver (there's a possible candidate, but not sure yet) or come by plane ... decisions, decisions ...

    I'll definitely come to Doncaster (ferries and hotel already booked), but without Lex.
    So if I can't make it to Prague you can bring the badges I ordered to Doncaster, or ... if you're not coming to Doncaster send them to me by snail-mail.

    Let's wait and see how things turn out ...

    cheers,
    Guus

    Do you want some support about seeking accomodation?
    More in PM.

    PS: Sven has some positive reference to stay in botels on Vltava river. For a Dutchman seems natural

    Hey Guus,
    did you try booking the room via Roomdi.com ?
    I could get a room just a couple of days ago, even after Hotel Mars itself said it would be without vacancy !

    Cheers, Thomas

    PS: See you on Sunday in Nijmegen.

    I found Hotel Mars full on 4 booking sites, including booking.com, then got a room on lastminute.com,......................amazing how a hotel can be "full" on site after site, then available on another one.

    I'm also happy to bring Prague badges back to the U.K.

    I think Hotel Mars has different numbers of rooms for different companies.

    So it‘s no wonder that the rooms are gone on some booking sites.

    I can recommend Botel Racek.

    ...and a 3 day Ticket for public transport.
