VERONA MEETUP REPORT

Postby andrea » Sat Mar 31, 2012 6:02 pm

Hi Verona concert Forum members,



we will have this great occasion to see Leonard Cohen in the Arena on 25th of September.
I try to organize a meetup on Monday 24th, and maybe also find a place to meet just before the concert on 25th.

However, there will be soooo many of us that I need to know how many we will be.

We have to pre-book a restaurant to have a pizza or dinner together. I may also

organize a sightseeing with an English speaking guide etc. – Will tell you more when the time comes.



Now, please, those making plans to join this meetup in Verona please send me a PM or email.

(those who already have done this: I have you listed, no need to do it again!)

I will collect all names to a meetup list and post it here on The Forum.



We can also discuss how to proceed. I will probably have to fix a maximum number. So please hurry up!


ciao da Verona

Thank you Andrea.
Having been part of the last weeks of the so called "Barcelona team" for the Sept 21 2009 meet up I know all the work and stress involved organising a big event.
That said, I have to say Barcelona 2009 changed my life! So great memories and emotions shared with you all! Worth every effort 100%!
I know how far I am from Verona, but feel free to ask for help if you need it.

Arriving on either Saturday 22nd or Sunday 23rd until 26th.
We still hope for the announcement of a September 21st concert so we don't know yet if we come from Berlin or somewhere else in Europe.
Looking forward to see you all, Christel

Hi all,
I have added to the list, those who have written PM or put message on the forum.
Soon I will put a name list on the forum, so you can check if I forgot someone. I will try to make a mailing list, but I have to prepare and get all addresses first .

I want to propose
24th afternoon sightseeing Verona (one or two groups depends how many want to partecipate)
24th evening dinner or pizza together (in city centre)
25th meet-up before concert (from 6.00 onwards near the Arena)

It is not easy for so many people but I will do my best to find suitable places. I also give in time some names of good bars or pizzeria/ristorante or places where people can meet in small groups, at least ones you have a list, you can organize yourself also with your direct contacts and plan where to meet each other .
I hope this is fine with you.
ciao, arrivederi a Verona

That sounds perfect, Andrea. I know it's a lot of hard work to do what you're doing. Thanks!

I would appreciate the day tour, so will try to arrange for an earlier arrival on the 24th for sure; so even if it doesn't come to be through you, I/my friend and I, can at least do one informally.

Thank you so much for organising a Verona meet-up. I cannot travel until Tuesday, but I would love to meet our Forum friends before the concert.
Count me in for Tuesday events, and I will keep checking this thread for the details.
Look forward to seeing you in beautiful Verona (I have been there before) !
