The Bochum A.net Meeting Today - A Few Pics

Mon May 29, 2006 6:11 am

Yay, the 1st official Bochum A.net meeting just ended and it was fun! We were 4 A.netters but unfortunately had Patrick (ACDC8) to leave way too early because of the bad train connection to his hometown (the train schedule sucks on Sundays). Anyway, here is a group picture when we said goodbye to him at the train station:



From left to right: Patrick (ACDC8), myself (Sabena332), Frank (Leskova), and Frederik (DTManiac).

Eventually, Frank, Frederik, and myself decided to do some bar hopping and to have the best "Currywurst" in the world:



Yes Andreas, the best Currywurst is from Bochum, stay away with your Berliner copycat crap

Later in the evening we went to the Tucholski Bar to have a few drinks more, we decided for Weizen after we already had enough Pils (mushrooms ):





Yes, I already felt a bit dizzy when the last two pictures were taken

It was a very nice afternoon/evening, we had more than enough laughs and more than enough beers.

Patrick

More than enough beers? Is that possible?

I don't know, but as you can see, even Canadians are travelling to Bochum to have a few drinks, seems to be a special place somehow.  Wink

I agree, it was a pleasure to switch from Pils to Weizen this evening. I like a good Pils from time to time but nothing can beet a Weizenbier!

By the way, N1120A is again the official "A.net Health Freak" since Leskova decided to drink alcohol again.  Wink

Isn't it amazing how much information one photo can carry?
Those folks are having a beer, then they have a Bratwurst, then another beer ...

It's just like those breaking news you can watch on TV: politicians going upstairs, going downstairs, politicians opening their suitcases, closing their suitcases ...

I am feeling so steeped in information, and the suspense is killing me.

I thought a trip report had to have over 23,238 words and a product absorbency test of some kind.. or for Patrick a rolling paper burn time test might be a bit more fitting

As of today, the meet is scheduled for Sept. 22-24, 2006.

There is a thread which can be found here.... YYZ Fall Meet 2K6 (by MattRB May 5 2006 in Non Aviation)

As i'm sure you are well aware, these dates can change so when you're bored, take a look at the thread for the current information.

Hopefully in a few weeks a date with be cast in stone.

The last YYZ meet was great fun. It would be great if you could make it.

Oh Lord! Gone from A.net for just over a week and totally miss out on this thread.

Was a blast, albeit very short for me. Took me a good 5 hours to take the 60 km trip home, yikes! Just one of those days, Sundays are awful with the train/bus connections, and then on top of that all the delays from the weather.

Oh well. Next time we need to do it on a Friday or Saturday night so we can do a "real" Bochum tour. Probably need to teach you boys how a real man drinks ....  Big grin . Need to do it before the middle of July though, I�ll be back in Canada then. Need to get me some of that Currywurst before I leave!

Next time we should definitely meet on a Friday or Saturday, that will be even more fun. I am sure that Frederik is in as well and additionally I will ask a good friend, I am sure that he joins as well when it is on a weekend.

We could meet up again during the World Cup, then we can have dinner together, watch footie in some bar or at a so called "public viewing area" with a 20x10 meter monster screen, and afterwards we can drink like there is no tomorrow in the Bermuda Dreieck, and as a great final we can have the traditional "drunk-kebab" after we had 30 Pils or so.  Wink
