Are we going to take the Consular Offices / Assad's Gazebo / Saddam's Palace this year? If so, how are we transporting it?

We will be taking the Consular Offices/Assad's Gazebo/Saddam's Palace/Ali's Annex and more. The Equipment page holds the secrets.

Nordin's car roof box can take the palace if we need it. Otherwise he'll just take his own 4man tent.

The alternative is renting a pre-built marquee/tent space when we're there, but this will cost the collective some money.



We should bring back the asylum program:

For all our disenfranchised friends and floating accomplices, we offer an asylum program! This is your chance to become a True Scotsman, with our exclusive, highly coveted True Scotsman, Letter of Sanction - the License to Kilt.

There are a few rules and caveats you must adhere to, including near (fucking) constant (fucking) swearing and accepting the word of Billy Connolly as the absolute truth, but you'll get the hang of it in no time.

Those carrying a license to kilt will be granted freedom of movement across our border by FCKU.


We should run events.

Typically, Whiskyleaks and a last night chill out.


Anyone want to give a talk?


What Projects are we going to need space for?

Nordin is focusing on (space?) radio for once. Space/kit for dipoles and a mast might be nice.

Doc Will be doing a workshop building Air Quality Monitors based on the luftdaten design..

Twin Village

Do we want to pick a twin village, make them a sign and do something silly with them?

This will need more planning and cooperation than we had with the Dutch last time.

Decoration/Stickers/Give Aways


The road sign is going. Shall we make another?


The Whiteboard Worked.


Are we gonna make up different / event specific SC stickers?

see the Stickers


Hibby: A “Welcome to Scotland” or similar zine could be good fun to print!

Give Aways

Are we gonna have anything other than stickers to give away?

Whisky for sharing? Coffee? Will we need a kettle or plastic paper cups or anything?

irl: plastic cups make the environment sad.


Hibby: Fuck BBSes

irl will run an IP/AX.25 access gateway on either 2m or 70cm depending on what radio/antenna is looking good closer to the time. This will use some tunnel from to be worked out. Hopefully will also announce via an APRS terminal on 2m. If there are Scottish Telemetry Bits (STB) to add to our APRS beacons or put on an amateur webpage, then talk to irl to work out how to do that.

Our German Friends are planning on coming
