NFS and NIS Great Madrid Escape! Join us for the party!

Great Madrid Escape

It’s really going to happen! A long time ago the idea was put forward that when we reached 1,000 forum members we should organise a big pary in Madrid for Easter 2007. Well we are nearly there, so we have picked a date so you can all start booking your flights! (And you certainly don’t have to be a forum member to come along!)

So here’s the plan: As many of you as can make it (the more the better!) will come to Madrid from Friday April 20th until Sunday 22nd, 2007. On the Friday night we’ll organise an informal get together (tapas til late? 😉 ). On the Saturday we’ll organise a trip around Madrid or a trip out to one of the beautiful nearby towns, it’s up to you. And on Saturday night we’ll have a big celebration meal. Then maybe a trip to the Rastro on Sunday.

The point is that anyone who listens to the podcasts, or drops by the websites, is very welcome. It’s a chance to meet Marina and I, and all of you, and to see some of the best bits of one of the most exciting cities in the world!

Everybody will be responsible for sorting out their own flights and accommodation (though we may be able to sort out a discount somewhere if enough of you are interested in coming!) We will obviously help with ideas on where to stay, and sort out the place for the meal on the Saturday night. The idea though is to plan this all together in a special part of the forum, where you will also find a list of who has signed up already.

Come and join us for a great weekend in Madrid! Just e-mail me (Ben) if you are interested in coming along!

UPDATE: Please read the important post about accommodation in the forum.
