According to the poll most people favor the weekend 21.-23.11.08 but I don't wan't to decide it alone to set this date now. What do you think, Jona? Should we go then for that date?

would be better, IMO. RAT conference without Jasper is stooooopid. Evil. Nasty. Smile
Or a date earlier in the year, like september or earlier in October?

A tour of the Musea would be great!! I would really like to meet the people working on the Mainz ships, such as mrs. Pferdenhirt, (and see the ships, of course Big Grin )

Do we really want a guided tour through the museums? I mean, in the previous two conferences we visited the museums without, and that was the best way, I think. Simply because 1) we all know much of the basic knowledge of a 'normal tour', 2) we want pictures of specific objects, 3)want to discuss objects, 4)have different interests, within the museums collection.

But, that wouldn't say it would be great to meet the people behind the exhibition to discuss objects, as Robert states, but also, I liked the way we did it previously.

Rather not. That´s when they have the most visitors, on holidays.

We need to get along a bit on this. I suggest this hotel, which also has confrence rooms available, and it doesn´t seem to be too expensive.

TOP HOTEL
As for the date: Shall we make a new poll or what?

Any lectures?

I think it is important we choose a date shortly. As Svenja and Jona are organising this one (as far as I understand), I think they've to pick a date.

With this much people I think it would be rather impossible to find a date everyone fits bests.

Would it be possible to do an inventory of people requiring a room and get a group rate for the stay?? I for one would require a room for the duration Big Grin Lets fix the date and get the programme and lodgings sorted.

I would propose the date 21-23 November since 10 people voted for that. But I guess Jona should say something too about that date.

I just have another suggestion for the stay, Bad Homburg. That is close to the Saalburg and has a train connection to Frankfurt and Mainz. But I guess where to stay depends on what we want to see etc. I recall that Jona said something that he knows people in Mainz, that he want's to organize something like a lecture hall etc. So I hope he chimes in this discussion.

Salve Svenja!

RAT conference without Jasper?? He can't make it the 21 st. Bad Homburg would be OK too, I suppose, but would prefer Mainz central. Since a few people are coming by car, we could go to Saalburg as well in a carpool.
