FEM15 will be arranged in the same venue with FEM14 - in the picturesque Sastamala cabin with the date 14.-24.8.! The previous year was a great fun so please join this year too!

ITELFIHH (BIC-code for international transfers)
Huopatehtaankatu 2 D 17, 53900 Lappeenranta (Street address for international transfers. Also helpful if you wish to visit me - you are welcome :P)
Another way is to use PayPal, my PayPal email is firstname.lastname@example.org. But this way there is a transfer fee for sure, with internet bank there shold not be it except maybe in some international transfers.
You don't have to know yet how many nights you are going to stay there. You can pay some approximate amount. We can fix the amount later - I can pay you back or you can pay some more. Also, if the prices are too high for you (you are either in very bad financial position or have to use very much money already for travelling) we can discuss your situation and possible give you some discount. I don't want someone not to come simply because he can't afford the cabin rent prices.
People that have paid:
- insane guy
The events spreadsheet allows as an interactive playground to plan events. I really hope as many people as possible arrange some competitions in the FEM venue. The events don't have to be related to Elma - for example there is going to be Worms Armageddon and Liero tournaments. At the moment the top wanted competition list is something like
- Beer battle or two
- Flag tag cup
- Perhaps another battle cup in addition to zebra's battle cup
- Someone to host official FEMbattles.
I am going to arrange a FFCup there (not only for FEM attendants but for everyone in EOL) and I am going to need levels to there so please send those.nick-o-matic wrote:I think that could work out if we have one guy who is an "official FEMbattle starter" and who collects all the levels from others, renames them and then starts the battle in EOL (or offline if we want to keep it like that). That way things are in good control and people could still be starting unofficial battles in EOL when there are not many people playing (and therefore there perhaps shouldn't be official FEMbattles). This official FEMbattle starter guy could also make statistics from these battles and so on and at the end best FEMbattler could get a price and so on. But once again it's all about finding an arranger. :(Lousku wrote:I think having everything under a single levname prefix is a sik hassle because there's so many mans making levs all the time. Someone would hev to collect every lev (often through some usb stick or something because not everyone is online) and add into the pack before the lev is used in a balle or any contest. Theer's almost bound to be overlap in lev numbers and wrong versions in EOL database and random mans just adding their levs to it etc.
Also I am going to arrange a FEMquiz again and I am open for question / problem suggestions.
The cabin has no internet and last year we used mobile hotspots. This meant that not everyone had internet and it led into situation where most ppl were making and playing EOL battles meanwhile some others were left out. To improve this we have two options:
- Internet for everyone. Means that we need 3G/4G-to-WLAN/LAN solution (router, switch, cables etc) and SIM(s) with unlimited data plan.
- Some LAN system.
What is needed in FEM15?
The orgazional equipment arrangements sheet is for stuff needed in FEM. I believe at the moment the top wanted list reads
- Extra computers.
- Ethernet and power cables etc to allow everyone to have internet.
- Extra mattresses and bedsheets etc.
- A projector.
- 3G/4G-to-WLAN/LAN solution (router, switch, cables etc) and SIM(s) with unlimited data plan. I guess I will buy those 3G/4G routers and try to return them for full refund after fem if nobody else brings those.
- Stuff for prizes. Yes, I thought that we would get better prizes for competitions if people brought those themselves instead of me buying them. =) You could donate the prizes or I could buy those with FEMmoney.
The carpooling spreadsheet is as an interactive playground to plan carpooling. For example I will go from Jyväskylä to FEM and from there to Lappeenranta and can offer rides if I have a car but otherwice I'm going to need rides.
If you need public transportation, you can get to Sastamala with busses/train both from Tampere and Turku. And it is really ez to get to Tampere for example from Helsinki:

There is going to be something like a dozen beds, but the cabin owner is going to lend us some mattresses. However, both the beds and lent mattresses requite bedsheets or sleeping bag and pillowcase so please bring your own. The owner is really strict about this. Especially what it comes to the beds - she has just renewed them and wants to keep them in their very good condition (those beds are very good I must say). I also hope people bring some own mattresses or air beds or sleeping pads for those that do not have own bedsheets because there are anyway going to be people without own bedsheets even though I hope everyone would bring their own. Anyway if you want to ensure a sleeping place you should bring bedsheets or ask your friend to bring those to you. I maybe bring some extra bedsheets if I get a car with which to come. Would be really nice if others brought some extra bedsheets as well. =)
It's allowed to erect tents to the yard btw. It actually might be good idea if few people slept in tents since the house is going to be crowded at least during the first weekend.

Okay, it's time to get stoked about the anticipated FEM 2015 already! I finally made an availability sheet for FEM 2015 similar to previous year's sheet. Please fill it as soon as possible so that we could book the cabin and people could decide the dates for their summer holidays and so on (albeit it took quite long for me to create it).
It only has the availability sheet at the moment but I think we can use the previous year's sheet to add more sheets when it comes more topical.
Finally just the FEM14 pictures link in order to increase the stokedness.
