Hög tid att boka CCF-mötet!

It’s time to act! Only one month to th “coolest” Contest & DX meeting in 2008! BOOK your cruise/cabin NOW!
Det är dax att boka CCF-mötet som går i mitten av januari! Det är mycket smidigt att vara med endast på lördagen om man inte har möjlighet att hänga med på hela kryssningen. Boka enligt instruktionerna nedan. När du bokat: lägg in en “comment” här på sidan så ser vi vilka som hänger på. Alltid triggar det några fler som inser att det här är super-tillfälle att få träffa likasinnade från hela världen och höra bra föredrag om contest och DX.


The last date to register as a dayvisiter is friday 11.1.2008. Because of the security control, getting the dayvisit cards is a bit harder this year.I will charge the fee 20 euros from your credit card, so please inform me by fax or by email to nina.krauel@area.fi the following details:

Day of Birth:
Credit card company (Amex, Visa, Mastercard etc.):
Credit card number:
Expiry date (mm/yy):
CVC security code (Amex 4 digits above the card number, other cards 3 last digits on the back side of the signature space):

Best regards

Comments from the 2007 cruise :

“S&%#TANA, it was very good!”
“My first time on the CCF cruise, and I really enjoyed it! Presentations were great with a wide spectrum of interesting topics. Everything together with the opportunity to meet your friends (and making new friends) is great. I will certainly join if there’s a cruise in 2008!”
“There was a good balance between presentations and time for eyeball qsos.”
“Cruise concept is excellent & good value.”
“Presentations by experience + number of participants = lots of interaction”
“Keep it mixed – DX/Contest topics and tecnical topics, too.”
“Keep on with your good work!!!”
