This is our 10 year anniversary and we would like to have something special.


If possible outside:

  • Tent where we server drinks and food

Inside almost as always:

  • Tux Café - used as show room, selling stuff and drinks and to discuss.
  • Class Room for the courses.
  • Class Room for the installations
  • Class Room for the LAN Party

  • Time: Saturday 8:00 to late night, Sunday 10:00 to 19:00 or only Sunday ?
