To everybody who takes $$$ stuff to the field:

This week we need to complete the list of insured equipment. If you have equipment in your team with a value > €2500/item and want to have it insured under our central festival insurance I would like to receive the following:

- Team - Item description - Serial# or other unique identifier (if available) - List price incl VAT - Added bonus: photo of item

TODO: Only possible thing is the ballpit / sandthingies -> fhp will check, probably nothing


Proposed plan on

  • No direct access to PretalX
  • Talks/Workshops are entered in PretalX by the speakers or by us, with note that this is for the family zone track
  • Haakjes and Sim will tell Team:Content when the talks/workshops should be scheduled


"as you might have heard, we had some trouble getting the water infrastructure ramped up since we were let down by the supplier. As we need to do most of the infrastructure by ourselves now, we would like to ask you to *register* with Henry (hp197), who is in cc of this mail, if you need some sort of water connection."

DONE: add jerrycans to the shopping list (fhp)

Focus on the project as a "Workshop" with a preset number of people per workshop. Sign-up ahead of time.

One workshop. Need to determine date. Saturday or Monday (due to availabilty supermarkets for fresh ingredients). Maybe Monday best to have more time for people to signup.

how many people? 50 pizza spots (for example: 25 kids with a parent)

Budget request for 400 EUR (see Wiki:

We have two pizza ovens (aloft && c4lc)

gas tank can be used from fhp && aloft , expected usage is 1.5-2kg of gas.

  • Budget is confirmed, 400 euros


  • Sim got things from someone else that we could use
  • Pikachu helps with translations into German
  • Age: 7-11

Status: Basic hunt/escape is ready, mostly paper/print based. Arranged some stuff to augment it, not sure if will make it in time. (nice to have, not required) Todo: Augment it (optional) Todo: Determine the walking route, print enough signs, laminate them etc. Todo: Place it in the schedule, decide if workshop style (once or twice) or just give people the challenges and let them do it on their own (requires a bit more field testing)
