Valborg 2013 - Stockholm visits Uppsala

Let's celebrate Valborg in Uppsala :) just like we did the last two years.

Those traveling from Stockholm, book on the 08.11 train to Uppsala. It will arrive in Uppsala C at 08.49

Please buy your ticket in advance, it will be a crazy thing to try to buy your ticket at the station in the morning.

For those who want, 2 meeting points: one in Stockholm and one in Uppsala

  • STOCKHOLM: we meet at 7.30 in the main Hall, close to the big circle-hole-thing, we go to the train at 7.45 in order to be able to sit in the train leaving at 8.11.

If we don't board the train early, there will be no seats, it will be crammed like sardines.

  • UPPSALA: meeting at 09.15 in Outside Max Burger, Storetorget Uppsala, to give us time to arrive from the train station and also to be in place for the finish of the boat race.

For those already in Uppsala early in the morning:
Traditional Champagne breakfast in Stadsparken in Uppsala at 8am. From there we can watch the end of the boat race. 8-12 am. Bring sparkling wine, strawberries, bread, etc. On the grass in front of the water next to Pumphuset in Stadsparken.

Note.... There will also be an after party in a separate event where we will meet at 6pm, to eat and drink some more before going to see the big fire and finish the Valborg celebrations. See here for event link http://www.meetup.com/EventsGroupSTOCKHOLM/events/111725682/

 

We can have breakfast, watch the boat race and see the yellow plastic competition ducks come in (the program says that it starts at 10) and then we will pic-nic in the big park with all the other people

See some photos we took from last year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We can buy some stuff there but the shops will certainly be full. We will bring with us some One time grills, ketchup, napkins and plastic forks

You just bring your own food to grill and bread, snacks to eat and your own choice of drinks.

For wine or strong beer remember to buy from the systembolaget the day before otherwise it will just be normal beer from the supermarkets on the day.

One more thing: once we are there, it will be very difficult to make a call... You can be lucky but there are so many people wanting to call at the same time that it can be difficult to come through.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A contact number will be given close to the time.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
