Hi all!
I was in Slovakia with Doc. Gernot Minke. We did 1 loadbearing dome and 8
vaults in two weeks!
It was great!

> Suffice to say now that some folks are trying to arrange a national

> serve the ESBG participants too), that the ESBG will start during
> afternoon of Monday 22/08 after a free day to enjoy the surroundings,
> and that we'd love to stretch the program with Saturday 27/08 as a final
> day with activities for general public (with a large 'Eco-Fair' inspired
> by pre-ESBG09), in order to serve the many Czech/Slovaks who'll enjoy
> meeting the ESBG participants, but whom we can't fit in during the week.
> ...We're also trying to arrange to build a big bale house as a workshop
> the week before (+a little during) the ESBG, however due to permits we
> can't promise anything yet.
> Asides from that then all further international information from our
> group will be handled/administrated by 'Fano', who'll write soon to this
> list and to the national (European) contacts.
> We would still love to hear from a person from each North/South/East and
> West of Europe, who would like to take on the task of renting a bus and
> drive it with participant to the ESBG11 and back?  +The program team
> would love to know which topics you'll like to present, and if any of
> your national organizations would like to manage one (or half) day program?

> In addition we plan to grow most of the organic food ourselves:
> Something to look forward to ;o)
