City/Town: Near Neuchatel
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Odile's place

Odile has kindly offered to host the Neuchâtel end of year party again this year and it will be an Indian themed event.
Odile lives up in the mountains above Neuchâtel but her place is easily accessible by public transport.

Where : Odile's place near Neuchatel (please PM Odile for address and directions.
When : Sunday November 25th from 11 am.
Cost : Approx 15chf per person towards the cost of food , children under 5 free.
What to bring : Yourselves plus a small wrapped gift (value around 5chf) for secret Santa. Please label your gift male/female or either.

We will be preparing all the food in advance so no need to bring anything with you unless requested to beforehand.

Drinks will be provided using funds left over from the previous Christmas party.

In order to avoid any problems regarding funding (since we will have to purchase everything in advance) we will be asking for all those attending to make their payments given deadline as was the case last year. The exact amount and details for making the payments will be provided at a later date but we are looking at 15chf as the approximate cost at the moment.

Sign up now to avoid disappointment as there are only 40 places available for this event.

I plan to sit on the bus until I can smell Indian cooking. Then get off at the next stop.

Re: Neuchatel area end of year party. Indian food!

Round here you are more likely to pick up the smell of manure, before you get to the curry

If the bus driver refuses to drop you at the bottom of our lane and goes on to the official bus stop, you need to go back through the hamlet, past 1 farm, past 1 house, past 1 farm, past 1 house, past 1 farm, past 1 house, then we are on the left top of hillock (by the big manure pile at the back of 3rd farm )

Close - well the pile of shit is about 150m from our door, so that's OK (changed your mind then ?)

Mm, he didn't want to do it for me last year.

I will be on the train that leaves Neuchâtel at 10:40 on Sunday if anyone else is going up by public transport.

Belgianmum, I will give you the money on Sunday if that's OK - was away for work the last couple of days and forgot to contact you about payment.

Re: Neuchatel area end of year party. Indian food!

These descriptions are too vague to be of any use to spot each other on the train; but at the bus stop I reckon we'll all suss who is who. I'm not difficult to spot, what with me having my photo on every post.
