sounds awesome!

it would be great if we could just keep this one to forest volunteer community. otherwise you'll get hangers on turning up, it'll be harder to remember the more important names and faces and the vibe will be less of the essence of forest. other more open parties and/or events do and will happen in the future...

Hi there just to confirmthat the party is actually on friday the 17th of july, otherwise lynn can not come, boo. milks right it's gonna be hard though to keep it only to volunteers, but thats the way it should be, does anyone know of bands or djs that want to play, alex and pockets, ? would be good to have some entertainment.

Stephen - I've had to change the party to Saturday 18th July as I got my dates mixed up yesterday.

I should know by now never to make a booking without looking at the events calendar on the computer!!!

Anyway, it's definitely the Saturday :wink:

(And I can come after my work at midnight - yeh!)

Hello everyone, I'm Hannah, the other new EVS.

Well, I would just like to hear your opinion on two things concerning our vollie-party:
1) Do you think it would be good to make it an byob-party or do you prefer to pay a fixed price and get drinks then?
2) What do you think about a buffet with international fingerfood made by the EVS and other volunteers?

Already looking forward,
Hannah

Okay...I have had a chat with Ilaria and she thinks it's better if we have the party on Saturday 25th July.

This is because Billy Liar is playing in the Cafe on Saturday 18th, so it's not a good time to have the party.

About alcohol...I'm going to the cash and carry on Monday to get some beer for the volunteers. But it won't last long, so I think everyone should still bring their own bottles!

EVS finger food - sounds great, go for it!

:D

finger food, for the win :)

you couldn't possibly invest in some really cheapo cider as well plz? still not quite there with beer and my tastebuds, as i'm sure is probably the case also with others ;o

i'm sorry you won't be making it mike :(
It'll not be the same without you.

As for the rest of you, see you at the party... and then see you for the Volunteer Meeting the next day (Sun 26th July)! It's from 5-7pm, so there are not excuses re: hangovers, etc!!!

It's going to be a great way for us to come together in a slightly more sober manner, and gear up for the festival (which is going to be wicked fun for everyone so long as we get ourselves sorted and support each other like the big loving hippy family that we are. OK?!!... [mwahahaaaa])

For anything you would like to bring up during the meeting, please add comments to the 'Volunteer Meeting' thread/post/whatever you call it. Or ask a KM.

Eh, I don't really make that much difference aside from being the obnoxious drunk guy trying to persuade people to listen to some random band no-one has heard of.

Yeah, I know we need posters. I made one already and have got it on my computer, the only problem is that the printers don't work. I'll probably be able to print tomorrow finally. But please tell as many volunteers as possible about the party! :)

Tomorrow I am going to fix it so that all the action room computers will be able to print, even if they have no internet access.

Is anyone with a car free Friday to help buy booze from Cash and Carry? Lynne's other offer fell through.

Ta!
