ear volunteers and AFS friends,
We would like to introduce to you our new Megavikend bulletin. Inside, you will find the important instructions how to get to Megavikend venue or what you should not forget. Moreover, we will reveal the program and introduce to you the members of our Support team. We will also tell you about the accompanying program and how were the preparations for Megavikend under way., Your Prep-team
: Concerning departures from Prague, please pay attention to your mailboxes, you will be getting an email from us about the tour of Prague for those who signed up and also about your departure from Prague to the venue. Please let us know all is as it should be and youâ€™ll be there as expected ;)
Preparations Why exactly do we always call the prep team ´hard working‘ ? Well let’s see…Lenie has been working so hard that when she moved and didn’t have internet, she started living at a nearby Crosscafe so she could keep answering emails and preparing everything all day and all night. Katka hasn’t been seen stand still for more than 10 seconds in weeks and reportedly refuses to leave the office. Zuzka hasn’t been seen in weeks at all. Honza got back after a few months away and so far he’s been safe from people asking him ‚How was Vietnam?‘ since all he does is MGV stuff and zero social life. Bara got so excited from all the preparations that it made her sick so she is writing all this shaking in three sweaters drinking some pretty suspicious Czech home made medicine.
Departing! Dont forget... You can leave your diving suit, collection of postal stamps or remote-control car at home but here are couple of things you will definitely need: • • • •
Sleeping bag and mat Slippers A bottle or cup for drinking Good mood and lots of AFS energy!
Friday feast Reminder: We are all very much looking forward to all the delicious things you will be bringing. So don’t forget to make some delicious treat from your country! Everybody can make at least an easy something so it is mandatory for everyone so that we can all together enjoy our feast Friday night!! :)
Who is on Support Team? Veronika Veselá 1) Why did you applied for the position of Megavíkend’s Support team? I´ve got the invitation and I desired to help and find out more about Megavíkend. 2) Which of the AFS activities or projects do you enjoy the most? This will be my very first AFS activity. However the idea of hosting people from all around the world appeals to me. 3) If you were food, what type of food would you be? Any kind of citrus fruit, for it seems different from the outside that from the inside. 4) Which Hollywood film actor would play you in a movie of your life? Anne Hathaway because she is very talented. Karolína Puchmertlová 1) Why did you applied for the position of Megavíkend’s Support team? I really enjoyed last Megaweekend 2011 and I wanted to be part of the organizing team for the year 2012. 2) Which of the AFS activities or projects do you enjoy the most? I like to organize cultural orientation camps for exchange students and organizing PR activities. I like taking photos of all the trifles that happen in AFS and I also like to write about them. 3) If you were food, what type of food would you be? I would like to be a roll from Hořovice. Because everybody knows about them and everybody loves them the most! They are imported even to Prague! 4) Which Hollywood film actor would play you in a movie of your life? I think no one could play me. Such people simply do not exist.
Jasmína Henniová 1) Why did you applied for the position of Megavíkend’s Support team? I wanted to help the organizers and welcome all the people upon the arrival to the school (I will help with the registration of participants). 2) Which of the AFS activities or projects do you enjoy the most? I enjoy the most my „charter president“ post because I learn a lot about management directly by experience and I think that experience learning is the best way to learn something. 3) If you were food, what type of food would you be? If I were food, I would be the Jogobella fruit, preferably strawberry!! Strawberries in Jogobella are great! 4) Which Hollywood film actor would play you in a movie of your life? Yasmine Bleeth for sure. She was born in New York but her mother was from Algeria (as my dad) and she’s got the same name as me. Katka Heroutová 1) Why did you applied for the position of Megavíkend’s Support team? I didn’t apply, there was simply a need for someone willing to translate. I agreed because I had time to spare and I wanted to do something for AFS. 2) Which of the AFS activities or projects do you enjoy the most? Mmmm… I’m actually now in the proces of trying to figure it out, so ask me in a few weeks. 3) If you were food, what type of food would you be? Sushi. Something neat (cooked), something raw, all rolled up together, making the perfect combination. 4) Which Hollywood film actor would play you in a movie of your life? Russel Crow. He’s not a woman, but the movie wouldn’t be probably any good anyway and I’d at least get to meet him during the shooting.
Katka Traburová 1) Why did you applied for the position of Megavíkend’s Support team? The last Megavíkend 2011 was just a great event and I know that there was a bunch of tasks and lot of work with it. Therefore I decided to give a helping hand and make this Megavíkend as awesome as the last one, or maybe even a little bit better! 2) Which of the AFS activities or projects do you enjoy the most and why? I love PR, photography and documentation. Just because I love to take photos in my free time - it’s my hobby. I also like to be creative. 3) If you were food, what type of food would you be and why? Avocado with olive oil, virgine vinigar, salt and pepper. Just because it tastes amazing! 4) Which Hollywood film actor would play you in a movie of your life? Whaaat? Of course myself, right?!
