This page is about the Booth Sprint 2009 and the Marketing Sprint 2009. We are aiming at a joint sprint location and date.
November 13 to November 15 We will expect arrivals from Thursday 12th on and departures on Monday 16th. Of course this depends on convenience for each participant... (using http://doodle.com/w92mtg9z6zqngx7d)
In general, everything related to booths (and promo). Feel free to suggest things you'd like to do as well.
On a more strategical level, there are:
The morning of the first day will be used for creating a realistic plan of what we want to accomplish.
Accommodation will be taken care off, the below is only for planning purposes.
There is a service for bed&breakfasts and appartments in and around Stuttgart at http://www.night-and-day.de/nightandday/en/OurRegions/Stuttgart/ The largest appartments they offer accomodate 8 people - though it seems the larger, the further outside of Stuttgart (but with decent public transportation).
As soon as we know the costs for each person, we will apply for reimbursement from the e.V. Each of the participants books their flight/tickets etc and sends a reimbursement form to the e.V. (kde.org/ev)
It is usually cheaper, when flying trans-Atlantic to fly to London or Paris first and then use Ryanair or another low cost carrier to get to the final destination. The English language wikipedia page suggests that there is a direct flight Atlanta to Stuttgart via Delta Airlines if anyone is looking that route.
There is an international airport in Stuttgart. However, it doesn't look like they have direct transatlantic flights. Luckily, there is a direct train connection going from right underneath the Frankfurt airport terminal to Stuttgart main station, which is most likely the easier and cheaper route.
You can check train connections on the website of Deutsche Bahn, the German railway company, at http://www.bahn.de/international/view/en/index.shtml If you are arriving at Frankfurt Airport, you can use a direct connection to Stuttgart Main station. Enter "Frankfurt(Main)Flugh" and "Stuttgart Hbf" for start and end of your journey.
