Saturday BBQ at the Aachener Weiher

Hello all,

We would like to invite everyone to a BBQ at the Aachenerweihe on Saturday 13th July!!

The last time we organised an out door event in June the weather was likely to let us down. Things still haven't changed but the reports are saying that we have a few weeks of good weather coming our way!!

We will post more details in the run up to the event.

We will organise a BBQ and charcoal but if anyone or wants to bring one then fantastic!! Everyone should bring what they want to eat and drink and I am sure that we will all share what we have.

We are hoping that we have a good turnout for this especially as we have many new members that we have not had a chance to meet yet.

We can stay out as long as we want or until it starts to get too chilly. The thought at the moment is to then go on to some bars or cafes for an evening out.

There is no Plan B at the moment but we shall see nearer the time and base the decision on the weather, how many are likely to attend and what options are available to us.

So.. we look forward to seeing old friends again and to meeting the new members!!

I know that it will be a chilled and laid back afternoon for us all.

Nearest Tram/Station:

U-Bahn Moltkestr - Tram 1 or 7

Cross all fingers, toes and drück die Daumen for good weather!!

    Sorry to have missed it. A quick pop-out turned into a 150 mile motorbike tour of the Eiffel. Hopefully next time

    Hi all, it's Koelner Lichter the same day! We could go and watch the show in the evening.

      Good idea Natalie!! Everyone can decide on the day whether they want to go on to the Koelner Lichter or not. For those of you that have not yet seen it, it is definately worth it.. My suggestion is that who ever wants to go plans to go somewhere near The Bastei. Mind you to get a good place people would need to be there early-ish..

      Now, I'm back in time for the fireworks, but put off a bit to learn I should have been there when the sun was still shining. I mean, that would mean I'd have had to carry at least 4 hours worth of beer.. and it would get warm and everything..

    Hi all, just to let you know that you will find us past the beer garden to the left of the park as you walk into it. Look out for flags or an England flag. Sorry, I don't have anything else that is easy to pick out!!

      Okay, I'll be watching out for flags. This will be me first meetup with this group, so in case I don't find you and you see someone walking around with an Australia flag, that's me!

    Hello all, well it looks like the Anna has managed to dance her way to assuring us some good weather tomorrow. So... please think about bringing picnic blankets and, as already requested, if someone can bring another bbq grill then it would be fantastic as mine is fairly small.
    Vegetraians should think about bringing foil so they don't have to cook on the same grill as the meat.
    Mmmm... looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!!
    Cheers... Des, Anna and Manuel!

    Hello all, tomorrow is Burgfestival! We will be half way through the week. We will be organising one grill. Does anyone have a grill that they can bring? We will also organise paper plates, cups and knives, forks, knapkins and soem plastic bin bags.
    For those coming think about something to sit on, picnic blanket etc.
    Food wise, everyone should bring something of what they want to eat. After that we can hopefully just share everything. Drinks I guess should be the same.
    The weather doesn't look as good as it could but I don't think it is going to be cold or wet. On Friday I will post the final on how to find us.. You can already start taking bets on it being a Union Jack!!
    See everyone on Saturday!!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
