T-shirts with PEM18 on front and nickname on back is nothing short of amazing.

Please someone start to arrange for FEM20/Elma 20 years shirts including nicks.
Cost of shirts + print ez add to FEM cost.

PEM seems like only non FEM meeting that get kinda same feeling. We met many players on countless minimeets here in Sweden and they were great but so much more casual with no planned events and such.

Please notify me as soon as FEM20 dates are set or close to set. Since vacation dates are not very flexible for me.

Hoping for livestream from PEM19! Cheers!
Elasto Mania - ez better

I agree, they were mega stoke to see for the first time too :D Mega props to Codeq for organising them last year (and to whoever came up with the idea, dunno if it was also Codeq)! And I also agree that it would be amazing to get Elma 20th anniversary t-shirts for FEM next year :) Probably needs to be organised by someone from Finland (or someone caring) though :P

FRIDAY

So, we started on Friday. Stooq, jblaze, berh, Mielz, who came all by one train from north met with Mira and Codeq at the station. Just like a year ago we had to eat something at McDonald's. Then we divided into 2 groups with berh, Stooq and Codeq going to open the apartment and prepare it for the rest. The lamps, sofas and the glass tables needed some slight rearrangement. The other group with Mira, Codeq, and jblaze waited for Dani and Chris. As it appeared later, the guys mistook the ways and Chris alone got to the apartment first, and Dani, jblaze, Mielz, Mira did it a couple of minutes later. Just as they entered the apartment, Dani got a neverending-clap surprise standing ovation for his help with levels during PEM18, the distance covered to join PEM19 and for the incredible amount of GAAs won for last year, showing how important he is inside the scene.

Then people started unpacking and preparing their hoyl-stations. We also had a big TV showing the countdown to the start of PEM19 made by Stooq, also used for the standings for all the cups played. LINK HERE Nobody knew what happened to bEAT, though, as he was supposed to fight in his work for a free day as he was initially scheduled for a night shift. jblaze set up a stream with his extra laptop, so people could watch ON HIS TWITCH what was going on.

So after some additional shoppings were done we started with the BULLET CUP which Mielz won! Congrats also to AndrY who came second overall. The sporty anger and shouting were so loud, because everyone wanted to do well in the official cups and the live meeting released extra adrenalin. Then we heard some angry knocking on the door. Everyone thought it was some neighbour already fed up with the noise, but to our surprise a wild bEAT appeared with his never-shutting mouth, Ramonesque level of energy and a bag full of weed.

Afterwards the big screen was used by Mielz, who showed some rides with exhaustive explanations what and how is done, what is faster, osv. regarding his current WRs in Haircut, Enigma and formerly Hooked. He also showed his recent best rides in the already-legendary jblP068 PIPE by jblaze and rewatched Stooq's COOL MOVIE showing his attempts. Then the HDMI cable was passed to Dani who showed on the big screen his enormous Warm Up skill with the incredible wheelpop reproducibility rate.

The night was filled with chilling, battles, bEAT teaching how to juggle, playing scrabble, and many more.


SATURDAY

People were slowly waking up, just Dani woke up a bit earlier, also bEAT couldn't sleep as he went partying to the city. As everyone woke up we started preparing levels for the most important cup, PEM CUP 19. The PEM CUP 19 has been won by jblaze, and the second overall was jonsykkel, congrats! The fight was quite exhausting, so people went to eat something. Funny thing happened when berh and Stooq went to the nearby McDonald where they randomly met Fejm who was about to join the meeting! Later we decided that we would move the PEM QUIZ from Sunday to Saturday and that the ALCO CUP rules would be 2 beers before the cup and half a beer after each event.

Unfortunately, bEAT got a phone call that he has to leave, so we hurriedly took a GROUP PHOTO with Chris being still in the restaurant. Then we took the PEM QUIZ which was made by arzenik (thank you!) It was very hard and complex, though, and there were staggering 300 points to get. However, jblaze managed to win the trophy with almost half of the points possible to get! berh, jblaze, Fejm went to the shop to buy beers for the ALCO CUP. Codeq didn't play, but among others the best was Mira, congrats! RESULTS The night was also full of events with some people being drunk, so many stories are still to be shared. insomner who is jblaze's cousin-in-law also joined us. Recently inactive, but around 2012 also a good kuski.


SUNDAY

On Sunday we expected one of the craziest things ever. The ONION CUP. Prepared as usual by Dani with the help of others. As the final levels were bring prepared, Codeq and Chris had to leave. As we awaited the starting time, some scrabble in pairs were played, too. Also some Andry levels now and then. The ONION CUP 3 was really great! It was won by adi, congratulations! Among PEMmers it was jblaze who could rise his victorious hands! Thanks once again for Dani for managing the project, roope, AndrY for additional events and of course iCS, who made 2 levels, one of them being a beautiful Poland-shaped one.

Fejm left and later we decided the format of the Couples Contest. At that moment we had 6 kuskis. The draw resulted in 3 couples: Dani+Mira,
jblaze+Stooq,
berh+Mielz
After 8 events of all the possible multi-competitions involved it appeared that jblaze+Stooq were clearly the best, congrats! They were very consistent even in the blindfold events, filling the top10 with seemingly hoyled times.

The night was mainly chilling and some personal talk, but we also played the PIPE CUP. Although being kind of drunk, jblaze won teh with regular ease. RESULTS
