    Ok everyone, as my good friend reminded phones don't work around Ekonomikum due to the sheer number of people trying to use the same time. So here is my suggestion: 1) We all meet up outside ICA at 13:00 and go together to Ekonomikum. 2) Just look for placard called ' The Uppsala Social' and we will try to sit closer to the entrance to Ekonomikum that you come from the city centre. If we have any distinct identifier, we will post it before we go to Ekonomikum !

    I'll probably join you after the boat race, any good suggestions where to meet on the way? Ekonomikum might be too crowded to meet ...

      Outside the ica at trianglen which is closest to ekonomikum might be a good place to meet.
