Polish Elma Meeting 2018, 07.12-10.12, Wrocław

Post by jblaze » 4 Oct 2018, 15:04

Hello! Hello everybody!
We, as a Polish ElMa squad want to certify that PEM is going to happen. It took us 6 years since the previous meeting to arrange things. But we reappear bigger, better and cooler!
Aside from the fact that its Polish meeting, we are absolutely open for any foreigners to come and we would be absolutely delightfully delighted if we can host YOU at our meeting!

Basic organisation steps' status:
Place is chosen. Getting stoked.
Coming up with cool events and waiting for the meeting is what we do!

Attendance list:
Confirmed: (note that we are on the very beginning of organising a place, we have just chosen the city, so some guys are yet to make the final confirmation)
  • Image Morgan
  • Image Stooq
  • Image berh
  • Image pawq
  • Image Mielz
  • Image Codeq
  • Image bEAT
  • Image jblaze
  • Image koparka
  • Image Kulisty
  • Image chris
  • Image Mira
  • Image Pascal (saturday,sunday)
  • Image Fejm (saturday,sunday)
The other probable guys:
  • Image insomner (maybe maybe for the weekend)
  • Image Bhz (poss visit)
  • Image Bludek (rather impsy)
  • Image insguy (rather impsy)


Any planned events?

Yes, we will try to make some events to make the meeting cool and tense! We havent really planned anything of that kind yet, as we focus on the most importnat stuff first (contacting people and finding a place), but these will most likely appear:
  • PEMQuiz
  • levelpack contests
  • some battling
  • streaming
  • collab lev
  • shot balle
  • 1htt/speedrunning
  • most likely some sightseeing
  • secret project! shhh

Where will we elma?

Wrocław, southern-west part of polishland. Here:

And here:

Link to more pics and details: https://www.booking.com/hotel/pl/loftapart.pl.html
200m^2 house all for us. Enough tables for sure, we shouldnt have problems with amount of chairs either. Impsy tell exact costs yet, but its less than 50 euro for 3 nights.

Heres a map of flight connections with Wroclaw. It takes less than 1h to get to the apartment from airport.

Sounds amazing! Would really like to come and I can even get on a cheap 4h bus ride from Berlin! December is often really busy though so could be max impsy. I will update you once we get closer to the date.
Cheers :)

so nice to hear from you insanely cool guy and blu (and i sincerely hope you come and take mira with you)! lets hope for lucky set of events (which means hosting you guys here!)!

we've got another potential foreigner on the board, Image mena! AMAZING! theres a great chance that we, as polmans, wont be alone :} i hope this will motivate someone who was uncertain whether he wants to come alone to bunch of poles :D dont hesitate and come to our amazing elmastic journey! we are waiting for YOU

we are intensively searching for place now. we got a bit bigger attendance than we initially expected, which is stokey as fuck.

BUUUU ATTENTION!
the owner of the house called us today saying he is going to holiday and is not able to host us at this date... sitution got complicated.

we will either:
- somehow convince him and organise external house&key caring service
- find some new place (hardcore choices again...)
- change the date (which is unlikely due to unnecesary confusion + e.g. morgan has already booked his flights)

we will keep you updated. sorry, but this was unexpected. incidental contingency that can happen anywhere anytime :s

Did you already agree and confirm that the date was set? Cause that is real assholeish behaviour to be honest.

I agree with the forementioned statement.
I, myself & Hosp has agreed to make some Beer Battle levels, so be prepared for a drunk-fest my fellow poles.
Hopefully the PEM will go as smoothly as possible, and I'm sure it will, with jblaze's help. ;)

hello Elma
I'd just like to ask people from "uncertain" list... Are ya coming or not? Time to decide, around 3 weeks left!
I just cannot wait. Great idea, great people and great organisation :) Thanks everyone who helped PEM 2018 happen.
I'm not recently in EOL/Elma world active, but I thought it would be very cool to see all those faces which I know from virtual world in reality...
So come on, anyone else coming? :)

Last update was that you don't have a place anymore to hold it, I don't think people are going to confirm while that's the case.

little delay but we have a house now. is confirmed. if we dont get kicked out by accidental events like last time we are set ;]

compared to previous one: its cheaper, its also luxury as fuck and also 200m^2. no garden here. it has theoretical capacity of 10 people (not 16 like before). but it doesnt seem like a problem :p ez sneak some if needed, theres space for like 50 people

also updated list of participants. koparka moved up to confirmed list. miras chances grew to 93%, unluckily bludek changed to super low. bene out of list :(

we will have some cool trademark prepared for PEM ;] wont tell more now. you will find out on 7th december

only ONE DAY to begin. we are extremely happy that we are so close.

unluckily pascal and koparka are unlikely to come due to personal issues. but there are chances. idealistic scenario is impossible to happen usually, well. we will have a nice meeting with the opportunities that we will be given :beer:

there will be polish elma national championships on saturday and sunday (2 parts), quite a big thing! theres never been national elma master cup as far as i know.

some initial schedule we made:

indeed it is pretty tight. although some of the tournaments will definitely take less time than the paper claims. im not for making it so tight too, but this is what we got. we'll ofc discuss stuff irl and things may get changed and verified.

the meeting has ended. i want to say a few words about it.

it was an amazing weekend. each of us was a puzzle that made the picture absolutely fascinating, it was an elma heaven. it was so fun in every fucking aspect. all the talks, all the laughs, all the rages made me so absolutely happy being there. thanks to EVERY SINGLE ONE of you for being great part of it. words cant express it.

i was afraid that we may not fit every planned tournament as i knew the schedule was too tense, but in the end we made it all with just a bongo cup skipped. there was just a bit too little time to socialize and do casual talk and elming, but it was all great anyways. so the organisation went way smoother than i expected. people were ready to play and make the levels when something was going on and there were no unexpected postpones.

some special thanks go to:
- Mira for representing elma world from abroad. really happy that you decided to break the national barriers and visit us! was so great to meet your lovely and calm self again!
- Stooq for organising the place, finances, event stuff. but most significantly: the EOLCUP.PRO tool! despite little bugs it made all tournaments go smooth with instant standings (especially with the amount of cups we had). invaluable work! it would take us a lot more work to count it all manually. also proved once again that hes a really fun and smart guy ;]
- Codeq for making a project and ordering the shirts which was a really practical and climatic addition to the meeting and a souvenir for the future
- pawq for tremendous passion, determination and sacrifice to overcome his physical disadvantages. not everyone would (most wouldnt) be able to take the risk and skip rehabilitation so soon after leg surgery and come across the country to the elma meeting. i hope it was worth it :<}
- Kopaka with pawq for seting up the private server which made some events go smoother and safer than they could have on public one
- danitah for huge dedication with levels for Couples Contests and Onion cups! the levels were done with big dedication even though i pushed hard on not trying too hard so he doesnt feel used. and the polish accents sneaked into levs :] great levels and live starting, spying and commenting :cat:
- and all the rest also. you all deserve extra mention too for just coming :D

and sorry for all aborts we had to do, im sure such a great event that connects the community desrves some advantages :D
