Only very few days left before we meet in Ytterjärna. As promised in earlier mails and messages, here follows a little update.
We have been allowed more space in the school as well as in Järna Naturbruksgymnasium. This means, we now have 8 classrooms and the big gym during the gathering and can house about 200 people in group quarters. So if you are joining just for the days of the gathering, this news might lighten your burden, as you do not have to bring a tent. You will need to bring your own mat and sleeping bag still.
Sweden on fire
It has been about 10 weeks since the last proper rainfall in most of Sweden, this has caused serious draught. Even one of the main industries being forestry, has been halted all over Sweden due to the risk of sparks and fire. Currently there are over 48 large fires racking many forest, some too big to handle, so there can only be damage control. The result is that there is a strict ban on any open fire. Meaning ANY open fire including gas cookers etc.
Open space now open
As you might have noticed, you can now pre-book you open space slot online. So if you already know you want to perform, invite, present or otherwise gather some people around your initiative during one of the afternoons, you can now make sure to have a time and space to do it in.
