It is only three weeks until PlanetsCon 2 kicks off, so this is the time to publish the preliminary program:
For those who arrive on Friday, we will be waiting for you at the Burcht, Leiden’s silly fake castle. We can be recognized by the pirate colours. In the evening, we will retire to Belgian beer cafe Olivier.
On Saturday, events will start at the Hortus Botanicus (botanical gardens) at 9 o’clock.
- 09:00 Dazdya – opening and the story of Leiden
- 09:30 Mentar – workshop diplomacy – introduction
- 10:00 Thin Lizzy – Turn of the Year – entries
- 10:45 Emork – stealing ships for non-pirates
- 11:30 Tour of the Hortus observatory
- 12:00 Lunch
- 13:00 Mentar – diplomacy workshop
- 14:30 Thin Lizzy – Turn of the Year
- 15:30 Joshua – state of the Nuniverse
The events are still subject to change. The tour of the observatory is optional, and can also be used as a discussion break. Time permitting, we may also have the following:
- Dazdya – the new Klingons
- Smn – Capricorn update
After the events, the non-Imperial barbecue will take place. During the evening, Mentar will present the conclusion to the diplomacy workshop. Also, there will be the option to create video introductions of the attendees. And there will be nourishment.
Sunday is a day of rest, and a day for checking the hosting schedules. For those not going home yet, it is also a day to meet in the park, or a cafe. Arrangements will be made if necessary.
The current confirmed guestlist is:
Admiraldr, Coen1970, Emork the Lizard King, Frostriese, Joshua, Madinson, Mentar, Nanning, Ndek, Planetsmonger, Siggi, Smn, Spacesquad, Temaperacl and Thin Lizzy.
If you missed all the posts and rumours until now, but you still want to attend, this would be a good time to react. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and you will receive the details of attending forthwith.
All times are given in CET, central European time. The US east coast is 6 hours behind us, the west coast 9 hours.
Your organising committee,
Dazdya and Robijntje
