20th 24HPC in Budapest

Post by tamz29 » Tue 04 Feb, 2020 11:12 am

The jubilee 20th edition of the 24HPC is scheduled for the 9-10th May weekend.
Details are on this Facebook page: https://web.facebook.com/events/8415648 ... _tab=about

In a separate e-mail, Gyorgy suggested a walking-escape-hunt (?) for anyone arriving early on Friday.
I'm planning to attend if nothing pops up, even though I remembered feeling really dozy last time.
Anyone else interested?

There were questionable rumours about this being the last edition so we could peer-pressure Gyorgy
to reconsider this, if that's the case. :lol:

I think me and Neil are planning on coming - we might even get our round together!

The timing is a bit annoying from a UK perspective - there's a bank holiday on Friday which is doing funny things to the prices of flights as a few people are fancying a bit of a jolly in Budapest.

My current plan is to fly to Vienna on Wednesday (I've never been) and then pop on a train to Budapest early on Friday. So I;d be up for joining any activities in the afternoon for sure

As Tom says, I plan to attend, but haven't sorted out exact schedules yet (I haven't checked flight prices because Tom's scared me too much). But I'm definitely planning to do something puzzle-y on the Friday if people are around. :-)

I'm intending coming too - but haven't checked my flight times yet (or work availability!)

I had a look at prices on Tuesday, but wanted to confirm about flight return time. Just looked today and prices on all airlines have increased. Will check again on Tuesday.

My conundrum now is whether to book or hold off due to the coronovirus. Obviously currently okay in Hungary and here but...
