Re: Why there is not any event in Fribourg?

All events need organisers - they do not happen by miracle. So think of something fun or interesting- and invite people to join you. Simple.
Bonne chance.

Re: Why there is not any event in Fribourg?

As Odile says, someone needs to organise one, why not you? Create something interesting and you might get some turn up. Fribourg though has much less EF members than Zurich so don't expect a turnout like there.

I do organise one every August in nearby St Ursen at the Highland Games and I get EFers from all over the country. Maybe this year I'll arrange a specific drinks do on the Saturday evening. I hope you turn up!

Hi,

I do not know if you are a girl but there is a very active group called the FEW (Fribourg Expat Women) and they organize a lot of stuff like classes and outings and even bootcamps!
Maybe you should check them online, I am positive there is even an EF thread about this

I announced a nice one for February 25th, but it didn't seem to interest anyone...

Re: Why there is not any event in Fribourg?

If you organise something good . . . I might even come to it from Zürich!.
I do sympathise with you - it`s not easy when you are outside of the `hubs` of activity . . . good luck - give it a try.

What! ..... you expect us to spend all day drinking warm Guinness, and then start all over again in the evening, and still be in a fit state to do it all again on Sunday.
[Sat. is normally with the family (wife drives) and Sunday with the guys (free bus)]

You better bring some of your strongest stilton - not just for eating ... but I may need some under the nose for reviving.

My mate was competing this year, he got to the finals . Passed by your stall and was going to say hi, but seemed you were super busy.

Re: Why there is not any event in Fribourg?

Problem with Fribourg, there just aren't that many of us anyway. If you look at the regular Zuri or Basel events, how many attend compared with the number of EFers living there? Scale that down about 10 to 20-fold and you're not left with much.

I've always hesitated about trying to set anything up, but might consider something. On day.

Re: Why there is not any event in Fribourg?

I've been meaning to organise something but I'm moving next week so don't currently have the time. Once I'm all settled in new place I'll see about organising a night out for a few drinks.

That said feel free to try to organise something yourself as well

Why don't you go ahead. The worst that can happen is that nobody turns up, and you have a good excuse to give to the missus about why you're off to the pub again
