[edit] The 7th Cheese and Wine party


[edit] When?

Monday July 25th, 21:00

Setup scheduled to begin 30-60 minutes before the party time. People who brought cheese are welcomed to join in helping in the identification of items.

[edit] Where?

In Banski Dvor, lower left (the same level than the talk rooms). From the main entrance, go left of the main stairs, pass in front of the Frontdesk and there will be signs.

[edit] Why?

Cheese is Good For You. Wine also helps. This C&W is the 7th official DebConf Cheese and Wine party. The first C&W was held^W improvised in Helsinki during DebConf 5, in the so-called "French" room.

Cheese and Wine parties are now a tradition for Debconf. The event is very simple: bring good stuff from your country, preferably cheese, wine and|or any other good stuff that can be drunk or eaten. Even if you don't bring anything, feel free to participate: our priorities are our users and free cheese.

Some bits from previous C&W:

[edit] Questions?

Write to Christian Perrier <> or ask in the debconf-discuss mailing list.

[edit] What will you bring?

Please add your entry in alphabetical order. Please choose one, two, or exceptionnally three, representative cheese from your place (list of cheeses. It is recommended to target pieces that can be cut in about 10/20 slices/portions/whatever each.

There are fridges in the hosting facilities (at least Hotel Bosna). Please store your cheese and liquids with you until Monday afternoon. Then, at that time, please get in touch with one of the persons listed below under "Orga Team" and "Cheese Assistants" and go with him|her to the place where we'll be storing everything.

If you haven't been able to bring cheese, you can get some in Banja Luka. Unfortunately, I haven't spotted many places for that. Still, you can get some at the Maxi supermarket located at the down level of the "Boska" shopping center. I suggest getting "Trapist" cheese which comes from the local monastery. They also have a few "foreign" cheese on the opposite site of the supermarket, so that we have variety.
