    Hello from the Events team!

    We wanted to let you know how much we miss planning real life events for you. It's been a long 17+ months since the pandemic shut down most countries, and even longer since we've been able to gather together. But! We are looking at 2022 with excitement! We are in the beginning stages of planning for both Anniversary Party 2022 and EuroParty! We can't say too much right now, but it might not be a bad idea to start saving up for either (or both!) events. We are planning for the latter part of 2022, so we hope that we're giving everyone enough time to ask for time off, save up, etc!

    We do want to temper all this excitement with a little caution: we're still in a pandemic, and many things can change between now and next year. We will do everything we can to provide events to attend, but your safety is our paramount concern. We'll take into consideration factors regarding international travel, Covid-19 levels, etc. as we plan our events. If we need to cancel, we'll give you as much lead time as possible. Dates, locations, and how many we can safely gather in one place are all being evaluated at this time. This also means that the huge party we wanted to plan for next year will most likely be pushed back to our 25th Anniversary party. We don't know the future, but we want to make sure that we can gather safely.

    Look for updates in the coming months! We look forward to seeing you, IN PERSON, next year!

    Believe me, I've had one of the most boring jobs on this site for the last year. I want to make more events, I love meeting you and I wish I could do it more.

    But for now, in Europe, the rules for quarantine and even closed borders changes weekly and even daily in some cases. I don't want to have an event that someone suddenly can't attend because they live in a country outside of the EU, or just in a country that suddenly have a mass breakout...

    Nice to have some light at the end of the tunnel. But I know you won't put anyone at risk. Fingers crossed we can gather again soon! :hug
