    Meeting up in the flesh with sethoflagos a few days ago certainly was an uplifting experience. So I've come up with the idea of a

    European TM Conference


    to be held here in Vienna.
    Date: June/July 2016 (date to be arranged by attendees)
    Period: Long weekend (Arrival Friday afternoon/evening, full day Saturday, half day Sunday)
    Proposed Programme:
    Musical Tour of Vienna (State Opera, Musikverein, Volksoper, Mnozil's, Votruba's including guided tour of the workshop and the chance of trying out lots and lots of trumpets and much more)
    Lots of trumpet playing together
    Crash a Jam Session at Porgy & Bess Jazz Club
    See an opera or operetta together
    Generally have trumpet fun (suggestions welcome!)

    I'm volunteering to arrange things like a meeting room or hall, collection from the rail station or airport, and make local arrangements.

    I value your ideas and applications!

    Sorry, barliman2001.
    I can't make it.
    :( But you can always join my Global Trumpet Union Group in TM for arranging these announcements.
    I've love to come......

    Pretty sure that we'll be up for it. Though it's a bit of a trek from Lagos for just a long weekend, so we'll probably make a week of it at least.

    Excellent Idea, my wife is getting itchy feet to come to England and Europe again next year, will start the ground work for Vienna, loved the day we had in the city 7 years ago on a Danube-Rhine cruise.

    Regards, Stuart.

    Sounds great, not saying I can do it, but looks like a well planned idea

    Excellent idea, Barlimann, involving tons of work on your part. Thank you for the offer! You might want to make arrangements for hostels to stay in. Experienced one of those in Venice. Didn't mind the sound of "hot-rod" boats in the canal so much as the mosquitoes and snoring of my colleague (who sounded as if he were dying--"snore, silence....wait for it....snore...OK, he's not dead....snore, silence....").

    I am interested. Not sure I can be there, I may be in Japan at that time (in relation to my daughter's studies), but very interested.
