We’re excited to invite you all to the next European Alumni Meeting in Helsinki, Finland! As we saw how much Cast C 2007 enjoyed their visit in our capital area last fall, we have the confidence in promising you a blast of a weekend in the beginning of May 2008.

Since there won’t be any cast touring Europe this spring, it gives us the perfect opportunity to host the EAM in a Nordic area and offer you something more exotic, a trip that many of you might have thought you’d like to take one day, but there hasn’t been a good initiative so far. Well, here’s your chance of experiencing Helsinki and Finland with local guides – the Finnish alumni.

We have booked a nice hostel on an island near downtown Helsinki for you. Check it out at http://www.eurohostel.fi/main.php. All rooms are for 2-3 people, so no cramming into tight or huge dorms. :c) Those who want to spend more than 2 nights in Helsinki, our group-rates are available for extra days. You just need to contact Eurohostel and let them know you have signed up for EAM and would like to make a reservation for extra night(s) at our group rates.

How to get the most out of EAM weekend?

The actual meeting day will be Saturday May 3rd. The day is packed with official stuff, speakers, presentations etc., a dinner together and of course a party at night. For the days before and after, we’d like to offer you fun extra activities in Helsinki and surrounding areas.

The 30th of April and 1st of May are a huge party all around Finland and on those days you can join other UWP alumni for a traditional Vappu-picnic in a very lively park area of Helsinki. Prepare yourselves for a crazy PARTY that is not the least bit dry, if you catch our drift... ;c)

For Friday 2nd and Sunday 4th we will have a variety of alumni guided tours and activities available for your sign-ups according to your own schedules and interests. In a traditional Finnish volunteer spirit, we have a plenty of alumni ready to be your local (English speaking) guides. Most of the places or tours won’t cost you a cent, or perhaps a tram ticket to and from only.  
TOURS WHICH WILL BE ARRANGED 
FOR SURE ARE MARKED IN GREEN. 
  
IF YOU WANT TO JOIN ONE OF THE OTHER TOURS, 
PLEASE SIGN UP ASAP!

Examples of the theme’s are: Community involvement, the world’s biggest sea-fortress Suomenlinna, Nuuksio nature preserve for hiking, art museums, Finnish design window-shopping, major sights in a nutshell, the cheapest tourist sightseeing on tram route 3B, swimming or skiing, Linnanmäki amusement park, Seurasaari historical museum island, pubs and cafés (although this may not need any guides)... ;c) You can browse the sights and events also at http://www.hel2.fi/tourism/EN/matko.asp

So start looking for the best flights now to get the cheaper rates on them too!

See you in Helsinki in May!
