Naaah, all the left-overs got distributed ... Cheesy

Reminds me of "de ophaal Chinees" : http://youtu.be/xlANk415V7U

Quality sucks (this scene is about as old as our cabs) but it's so funny...

 Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

(I think it's even possible to understand for non-Dutch understanding people. The guys is out of a job and now has this idea of the "Pick up Chinese", contrary to the "take away Chinese" because you ALWAYS have food over after a Chinese take-away...

Friends.....

Time to share some info about last Eurocade. ASAP I will post the results of the survey, but first I wanted to "open the books" for you all to see.

We want to do this because we want you to know where your hard earned money went

So here is our very simple but clear balance:

Received:
Entree fee (€5 per person) : € 185
Donations in mini Zacc:       € 493
_____________________________
Total:                               € 678


Costs:
Food, snacks etc.:              € 130
Drinks:                             € 116
Chinese food:                    € 210
Rent of clubhouse:             € 190
Electricity (121 kWh !)        €  23
_____________________________
Total:                               € 669

Notes:
1)The Drinks amount is so low mainly because of so many of you bringing drinks to Eurocade, THANKS for that !
2)The donations were a very good amount indeed so BIG THANK YOU to all of you for kindly donating.
3)Some stuff is not on this balance. Etienne had his costs in the mini Zacc, the printing matter (NOTE: ONLY SHIPPING COSTS, all printed matter were FREE outside of shipping costs, but still). Etienne made these costs his donation to Eurocade
4)Everybody noticed that there was WAY too much Chinese food. We were with about 45 people eating (incl. helping friends etc.) Still, as I know it's ALWAYS too much at a Chinese, I ordered for only 30 people....!!!
  
So.....quite amazingly, as you can see we almost had a perfect coverage ! The extra 9 euro's were included for a small gift for Ruud who helped me out so immensely by transporting almost all my cabs in one go back and forth, so I felt he deserved a small gift for his time, petrol and efforts.

Very good balance ! , so in general it was like 15€ per person for a fantastic day !

Thats a bargain in times like we live in ! , i mean take a few beers at a terras on a sunny afternoon somewere  Wink

dont want to be anal, but you forget the official Eurocade crewmembers T-shirts on my part Wink

PS if anyone like to have a banner that was used at eurocade, i have the opportunity to have them print some times when the banners are on offer
(and by "on offer" i mean only shipping costs)

The 3 banners that where there went to 3 crewmembers as a souvenir so they are not available, but i can still let them print new.

Also i am very happy with the result of the piggybank, it did exactly what its purpose was, and now it is on a VIP shelf as i have heard  Wink

Again Thanks to all for making this first Eurocade a big succes !  Space Ace Space Ace Space Ace

I'm glad to hear it turned out that great. Cheesy
Etienne's nice Piiggy Bank was a great motivation for donations, so I will remove it from the VIP shelf and take it to our new location next year. Wink

Can't believe it's all ready been a month sience EuroCade!!! Time flies!
Im glad the money covered it all (...) but i still wote for a total price, lets say €25 pr. person that attends the next EuroCade, of course, donations is still acceptable.. (hopefully the next EuroCade will be twice as big as the '11 was, hence the higher fee, and still, like Etienne said, where could you go and have fun with 30+ of you friends for that little money, and yes, €25 is some kind of money, but in this hobby, it's a small ammount)

And.... 121kWh!!! Wauw!! Well, xx Oldsch00l cabs running 23+ hours, some Co2 must be created!

Hey guys, remember this ugly light blue wall at the Eurocade location ?



Those are tiles glued to the real wall to provide some sound isolation/damping but have this ugly blue look...

So, yesterday I was there for rehearsal and.....



They put up some nice black cloth in front of it. Should have had that at Eurocade ! :S

Just by blurring my eyes I can perfectly imagine a giant eurocade logo on that neat black wall...  Roll Eyes
