Eurobash 2018 - The nutter edition, coming soon?
« on: December 07, 2017, 08:22:50 PM »
As the 10th edition thread was started on 25th of November, I was wondering if any steps are being made for the 11th edition (11 being the crazy number).

So will this edition going to be nuts?  :biggriin:

Why is 11 the crazy number? Thats the number I wear on my basketball jersey, and have for about 2 decades.
What are you trying to say?
Huh?

haha so this means you will attend the Eurobash this year then? :)

Anyway, I can't find an english reference. But loosly translated this is the dutch reference:

Quote
We call 11 the crazy number becasue it is only able to be divided by it self or 1. And because it stands between 10 (the perfect number) and 12 (the holy number).

It is also a bad luck number as it violates 10 (the perfect number) as a lucky number (it's double 1 the number of unity)

11 is also the number for carnival. Carnival starts on the 11th of the 11th month. There are 11 people in the carnival council called the "council of 11". And every 11th year there is a special edition.

Perhaps it is fortunate for the 11th Bash not to be in the Netherlands.

Pretty close though. 30 mins drive. For an American like you GP itís practically there!
There are 40 different shades of black, so many fortresses and ways to attack.

So why you complaining!

I've always wanted to visit Belgium and the Netherlands.  Maybe for the 13th Bash? :icon_wink:

I spent 3 hours last weekend driving to a buddies house in the same province. I could have visited multiple countries in one trip if I did that over the pond!

The bash threads are one of my favorite things to watch each year. One day when I can get a cheaper plane ride the Canadian contingent can make a showing.
