FAD EMEA 2008 - Proposal: Save Money at the FAD EMEA 2009 with a Scouts Cottage

  • Problems
    • FAD EMEA costs lots of money
    • Ambassadors budget is tight
    • FAD EMEA is growing (in terms of attendees)
  • Proposal
    • Replace the hotel by a scouts cottage
    • In 2008 the hotel costs CHF ~2500.- / 19 persons
  • Examples near Zurich (easy/fast to reach from main train station or airport)
    • Pfadihaus Schmitte (Seemöve)
      • City: Kreuzlingen
      • 28 beds in 2 rooms
      • 1 mid-sized workign room
      • CHF ~600.- / 22 persons
    • Pfadiheim Breite
      • City: Winterthur
      • 48 beds in 4 rooms
      • 1 big working room
      • 2 mid-sized working rooms
      • CHF ~850.- / 22 persons
    • Pfadihuus Dietike
      • City: Dietikon
      • 32 beds in 1 room
      • 1 big working room
      • CHF ~550.- / 25 persons
  • Advantages
    • Savings of at least CHF 1500.- for the accommodation alone!
    • Working room and accommodation in the same building
    • We could cook for ourselves (e.g. buy pizza at the local super market and bake them in the cottage's kitchen)
  • Disadvantages
    • More people have to sleep in the same room (same for bath rooms)
    • Beds are not that comfortable
    • Everyone has to bring his own sleeping bag
    • (Not all cottages have internet, but it should be possible to solve this problem)
    • (The cottage must be cleaned at the end, but there's normally an offer to have this done for about CHF 200.- which is reflected in the prices above already)
