WordPress will be 15yrs on May 27th. How shall we celebrate? (Update!)


It’s a Flandria boat trip!
You can find more information on our Meetup.com page! RSVP asap!

There will be loads of WordPress birthday parties all over the world on May 27th 2018. That’s for sure. And we’ll have ourselves a party in Antwerp as well: that’s for sure too! (WP Ieper will be celebrating on their next meetup)

But now the big question: what will we do? How shall we celebrate?

We want the party to be as inclusive as possible, so no entry fees, everybody is welcome (with family). Just to get together and have a fine time, as peers, as people who are/were touched by WordPress at some point or another. Because WordPress empowers people.

So, what are the options?

A) Have a park picknick at Middelheimpark (and walk through the museum). Bad weather alternative needed..

B) Have a BBQ (who has a garden/terrace that can fit 15-50p even when it rains a bit?)

C) Visit the Home Of Retail (http://www.homeofretail.com/)

D) Make a Flandria excursion on the Schelde: just because we can! (€15pp): https://flandria.nu/project/beer-diamond-cruise/

E) Go to the Antwerp Zoo (€20+ pp, depending on group size): https://www.zooantwerpen.be/nl/groepen/

F) Go to Park Spoor Noord and have a drink at Bar Noord (can be crowded on a sunny sunday).

G) An active event like karting, paintball, kayaking in Durbuy, bowling, …

I) ???

What’s your pick?
Do you have another fine idea? Or want to sponsor (a part of) the event to make it as inclusive as possible? For example: €750 gets 50p on the boat! With a handful of sponsors this could be made possible. 
Let us know in the comments!

Working with WordPress since 2006 and I love the openness & power. I try to give back by helping as much as I can & co-organising the monthly WordPress Meetup Antwerp and the Antwerp WordCamps. Together with Werner, we work on custom themes & integrations in our tiny WP agency Con Impeto.

Already 3p voted for de Flandria 🙂
I’m willing to sponsor a couple of tickets, if others chime in too!
