Identi.ca group: mmsprint2010
The Sprint will be held from May 20th to May 25th 2010, with the following basic schedule:
Randa and Switzerland is in the middle of Europe and as this reachable from several directions. There are three possible airports:
The track from Visp to Randa is frequented by a very famous train: the Glacier Express which is known as slowest fast train of the world ;-).
From these airports you'll take the trains to reach Randa (which takes approx. 3 hours). Information about the train schedules can be found on the webpage of the Swiss federal railways SFR.
Once you get to Randa, the House is easy to find. From North to South, arriving at the Randa Train Station you will go up the street then turn right then go 500m straight ahead and the House is there.
The house itself is pictured here.
If you take the train from either the Swiss border or one of the Airports to Randa, you can get a reduced price ticket, called the "Swiss Transfer Ticket 2nd Class". The validity is one month. It has to be ordered on this website: http://www.swisstravelsystem.com/produkttexte.php?passid=3 . You might also be able to purchase at a local partner (see below).
The return ticket fare is Fr. 127.- for both ways (a normal price return ticket 2nd class form Geneva Airport would be Fr. 170.-, one form ZH Airport Fr. 218.-).
CAREFUL: if you order the ticket online it will cost you an additional fee to get it delivered, depending on the country you live in. Please double check that this is not higher than a regular ticket price before ordering.
HINT: If you haven't bought your "Swiss Transfer Ticket" yet, you can still do so at your home destination via the reselling partners:
The floorplan indicates that we can use:
There is no elevator!

Local is Swiss Francs (CHF). You will need to hand over 90 CHF for food for the 5 days. A trip to Zermatt, the village at the foot of the Matterhorn mountain is planned which will cost 15 CHF.
If you need bed linen instead of your own sleeping bag it will be 30 CHF at arrival for the stay.
Prefered is that you get CHFs prior your arrival as exchange rates are worse locally.
It would be nice if everyone brings its own short ethernet cable.
Randa is at 1440 meter above sea level and while it is known for its superb climate it might be cold as well. Pack a warm sweater in case!
As we are the ones in charge of the cleaning, we ask you to bring a pair of indoor shoes so we don't put mud everywhere. Either indoor shoes (slippers, sandals, whatever you are used to) or a spare clean pair of shoes. There is a room at the entrance to change shoes.
Trip to Zermatt.
Monday the 24th May we will be happy to welcome any people wanting to visit us, chat with us, giving us feedback! Please let this be known!
Mountain Trip if some people feel like it!
The column "Sponsoring needed?" is to know if you need sponsoring or if you pay the travel/stay by yourself.
Please keep in mind that food and drinks are not sponsored. Switzerland is rather expensive in that regard but we have already found a way to lower the costs. A cooking plan will follow, so please be precise on your food habits (especially important for vegans/vegetarians or people with food allergies).
