Some of the usual suspects waiting for the boat to arrive. The Turku delegation consisted of Ben and Pasi (in the second picture) and me. This time we got there early too and didn’t miss the first boat.
Fen from Tampere. The first one got bored quite quickly, I see.
The favorite pastime of fen in Viikinsaari: photographing ducks coming to cadge for food and treats.
Just smoffing around… and by the end of the day, the Tampere fen had promised to organize a Finncon in Tampere in 2008! Something I’m very happy about, since it’s obvious nothing that big is going to happen in Turku for a while, and so we still have three groups that are making Finncon happen. Go Tampere!
Helsinki fen arriving, late as usual.
The traditional filking session.
After many hours of excessively healthy outside air, everyone was ready to hit some pubs (especially after running out of beer on the island). Tempo Terrace was otherwise very fine, but I was less than keen on the “entertainment”—a guy with a guitar performing less-than-ideal cover songs. Run to the Hills has never before made me actually want to start running! I’m guessing Toni is trying to perform a Vulcan nerve pinch on Sisättö so he wouldn’t have to listen…
The evening later continued in Sputnik (as usual), but since my ride left early, there are no pictures. Which is probably as well. Thanks, Tampere. We had fun; let’s do it again next year!
