[Strawbale] ESBG Friday 26th conference and castle concert

We're in full process of making the final program for the conference day of
the European Straw Bale Gathering, a day which can include about 40 more
people (that's what the conference room at the local hotel can accommodate).
We expect this event to attract the non-English speaking CZ/SK interested
parties; architects, engineers, educators, researchers and hopefully some
decision makers within construction. Hence the event will be simultaneously
interpreted to Czech language, and priced to cover the added cost of
translation. Eventually the presentations will be made available online by
Michal Napierzynski www.dobraidea.pl , just like he already did with last
weekends excellent 'Cohabitat' <http://vimeo.com/22005530> conference in

The format of the conference is the trendy TED format; headset microphone,
multimedia and 17 minutes max. per speaker, 18 speakers during the day. We
have selected quite a diverse groups of outstanding persons within themes
such as education, entrepreneurship, research and techniques, however we
would like also to include a presentation about SB and EU building laws, and
still have a tiny amount of space for another presentation about a unique
research, or technique?  Anyone know who knows most about this? Dirk

...Perhaps some of you could help us by urging Canadian Robert W.Tom
(Archilogic) to make a 17 min video'ed presentation which we can
watch, as he's not likely to fly over? He's  a bit shy about answering
our mails, but if you all send him a private email he may get the
hint? < A r c h i L o g i c  at  Y a h o o  dot  C A > I mean, isn't
it time we all find out if he's simply a Google/Wikipedia robot?

The Friday evening will be topped off with a unique one in a life time
experience: Rock da Castle!

What's better than "Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band"?

                                             * "Tom Rijven and the A'dam
Straat Band"!*

-A Dutch 7 person band arriving to celebrate the retirement (age) of Tom
among his family of 'Balers'! Certain to fill up the courtyard of the Bouzov

Sincerely yours,

Max & The ESBG Team

PS: Remember that only way now to gain the early bird discount price of 150
euro is as a speaker; the ESBG ticket now goes for 200 Euro and rising...
 How long do you dare to wait  ?! What if ticket sharks purchase the rest
and sell the tickets for 500 Euro?

PS: We now have about 70 participants from: Altai Republic, Austria,
Belarus, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark,  Estonia, Finland, France,
Germany, Hungary, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland,
Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and United Kingdom

PS: We hand sowed 1 hectare of long stemmed wheat yesterday; potentially we
can arrange scything course. We are looking for a vegie farmer for the
season; if you know of a skilled person then please have him/her contact us.
