Is around Nov 1st too late?
Don't change any dates just for me - I might be able to work something out anyway. Keep it for the 6th - there's a long time to go yet.
Tentative too please.
Last time I visited that Marbella / Puerta Banus area it was considered the expensive part of the C.Del Sol. Less Salubrious places not far along the coast will offer cheap accommodation though, maybe out of season Marbella would be cheaper. Cheap flights into Malaga are available, about 70km along the Carretera.
Hmm sounds interesting... I've never been to Spain. I've been to Oklahoma, but it's hard to see how that's relevant to the conversation.
If we do it in Marbella, we should play something of Alvin Lee...
And eat Paella...
Come to think of it... I had the second highest earning day in Marbella as a street musician traveling Spain in my teens... Park dela Constitucion... The Boulevard... The playa's... all perfect for earning some money
Or Arroz con pollo (I don't eat fish or seafood....I know, it’s a pain...)!
No problem... Chicken is fine. We can even make a giant tortilla de patatas all together...
Oh I don't want to deprive anyone of paella!
Superb! I'm in for that!
lol good reason
Could be late Sept or October or even November. It depends on other members.
Dont worry about accommodation, I'll get best prices, it's my job actually Yes, Marbella is expensive in general, but cheaper outside Summer.
Spain is next to Oklahoma, the exit before Oklahoma's one I really hope you make it! Maybe convince @dogletnoir too
I have good food plans for all tastes I will spoil all of you
So I could get a plane ticket with miles and about €40 euros...but may have to rent a car? If I can find cheapish accommodation this could be doable...
I can arrange for transportation and whatever you may need. However, I need to know the approximate budget that each person is willing to pay.
How much did Euroguestock III cost each person? How much Belgium's Euroguestock would cost?
For accommodation, I have many apartments and villas. Also, can arrange good prices with hotels.
Transportation, you can hire a car at the airport for low price or online (http://www.doyouspain.com/index.htm). Or I can arrange for airport pickup with the companies I deal with around the year.
Edit: For how many days does a Euroguestock session last? Three days/two nights?
I would probably arrive Friday and leave Sunday.
I still have a lot of question marks so can’t really commit or come up with a firm budget... I would probably aim for around 100 euros max per night if at all possible. That’s what I’m paying in Brussels. I’d be happy to share a bigger space (villa, flat) with other jammers.
How much notice are you going to need from us?
Oh, and this is very important: this should not become a huge burden for you. We are happy for suggestions and stuff but please don’t feel you have to make a bunch of arrangements for us beyond the jam space/equipment and eventually a place for Saturday dinner.
Oh and you may need to find a rhythm section...
Well said Andrea! Omar, if you get the basics right (rehearsal space and instruments, and a place to eat after) the rest will fall into place without you having to knock yourself out on other details.
Maybe some of us can share a villa and even share some car hire (although a car might not be necessary)
It's early days yet and a lot can happen in between times.
Andrea and Stu, thank you my friends please be rest assured that organizing everything is my pleasure and is no way a burden. I’ll be your host therefore I have to make sure you have the best experience and problem-free trip.
Since I’m unable to make to Euroguestock events outside Spain, I consider it generosity of you to come to Spain.
I have villas for 20 persons and others for up to 25. It depends how many are willing to share and who would prefer something private. For me, it’s not a big deal arranging such matters, it’s actually my job
I’m still searching for a studio, I’ll update this thread as soon as I get prices.
As I’ve mentioned in the first post, I can arrange for a paid gig if you want.
Let me know what you need and I’ll do my best to fulfill them
@Omar, from all your posts I've read, you sound like a very good person. But perhaps no longer a junior member...?
@Omar, count me in!!! October 6th is fine for me
