BARCELONA October 3rd meet-up

Before opening the new post to prepare the Barcelona October 3rd meet-up let's remember what happened on Sept 20-21 2009 to celebrate Leonard's Cohen 75 birthday.
I was honnoured to be accepted to be part of the fantastic Barcelona team only a couple of weeks before the concert.
They had been working for a year! That's why everything went so perfect!
My thanks to Toni, Jorcx, Chema, Toño, Meritxell, M Lluisa and Guadalupe.
If I'm not wrong Maarten made name tags for the first time for the BCN meet- up, a big succes too!

These were the very impressive figures:
152 participants for the various meetups, dinner,...
117 attended at the lunch


We know we are not going to be that many people this year, but we will try to spend a good time together!
2008 Paris. 2009 Barcelona. 2010 Marseille. 2012 Ghent. Verona. Barcelona. Lisbon. 2013 Antwerpen, Berlin, Pula.

Hola Bea y Chema

Regina and I had the great pleasure to be at the 2009 Barcelona meetup. It was a three-day birthday party. Thanks to all of the then Barcelona-team for all their efforts to make this an unforgettable event!

Please count Regina and me in for anything planned for 2012. And if I can help anything from Munich, please tell.
We´ll arrive in Barcelona on Tuesday, 2nd October in the afternoon. On Thursday, 4th on to Madrid and Lisboa. (then directly to court to declare bankruptcy...)

Saludos, Harald

Hola Bea

I am hoping to be in Barcelona and would love to meet up with people. To be honest, the 2009 birthday celebration was just too big for us, too many people in a very small room. Even so, we popped in to collect our name tags from Maarten and to say hello to a few people we knew would be there so we had a little taste of the fantastic atmosphere. I will feel more comfortable in a smaller group and look forward to (hopefully) seeing you all there.

Thanks Bea for opening the thread, all those memories of the 75th Birthday Bash are still fresh... It will be very difficult to compete with that memories and events, but I'm sure we can have a good time anyhow! Hope to meet you all in Barcelona '12!

Hola jorcx
wanted just to mention how much I appreciated your pre-concert then. Your catalan version of L Cohen gives a new and deep impression of L Cohen´s songs. Bought your CD and turn to listen it.

Verona
Paris
