OHM (Observe, Hack, Make) is the latest in the series of four-yearly Dutch hacker camps. 3000 people in a field, with power, internet, and beer. Come and join the Brit contingent! The event officially runs from July 31st - August 4th 2013, although some of us will be there earlier to help set up. Tickets are €180 (~£150), with concessions at €125 (~£100): https://tickets.ohm2013.org/

Co-ordination is happening on IRC: #emfcamp-ohm on Freenode.

We'll be joining the Electromagnetic Field village. Create a user page on the OHM wiki and set your village name to be shown on the page.

We pledged for a tent, please pay Crypt!

Transport

Air

KLM seem to be the cheapest carrier, but note that they have changed baggage rules recently and no longer give you free checked luggage; hold luggage is now £12 extra each way.


User:Alecjw is flying with a non-hackspacer from LTN at 0600 on monday via easyjet so we can spend a day doing amsterdam things before the camp starts. Others are leaving bristol at 0645. We'll meet in the AMS arrivals hall at 0900 or so if anyone wants to stalk us. All of us will be leaving at 1900 on sunday.
