“I was there!”-Banner

In all of the preparations for the Event we forgot one thing: To update the banner for your profiles and websites. We caught up on this and changed “Ich bin dabei!” (I am there) to “Ich war dabei!” (I was there). If you included the old banner you don’t have to do anything. The new version is automatically included since it was replaced on the server ;-)

For all of you that didn’t use the banner before but want to include it now, here is the sourcecode you have to enter in your profile:

Vouchers for the Fischbrötchen breakfast

Like announced we could achieve a discount for the Fischbrötchen (fish roll) breakfast at the “Kiek mol wedder in” Event on Sunday for you.

Fiedlers Fischmarkt will provide handmade, fresh Fischbrötchen on Sunday by 10 am for nice prices, so we can round up the nice weekend with a delicious Fischbrötchen breakfast.

Exclusively for event participants, we have vouchers. These vouchers can be bought on Friday and Saturday at the MEGA am MEER Info-Pavillon (Info-Desk). The vouchers cost 2,00 EUR and have a value of 2,50 EUR.

They can be redeemed on Sunday at Fiedlers Fischmarkt, located directly next to the Sunday event location. If a Fischbrötchen has a higher price than the voucher, the difference value is paid extra. A payoff of the vouchers is not possible.

With these vouchers the participants have free choise and get a discount of up to 20 % for Fischbrötchen (or other products of the assortment). We only have a limited amount of vouchers, based on the number of will attend logs at our Sunday event. So: first come, first serve!

We also start into the weekend with delicious fish on Friday. Exclusively by Fiedler we get 300 free fish sausages (“Fischbratwürste”) to try on the “Moin Moin” Event am Freitag. These Fischbratwürste are the first of its kind in the world and will be sold nationwide in supermarkets and stores.


One week until the MEGA am MEER: Some general information

Just one week until the MEGA am MEER, so we decided to inform you about some general things:

Will there be Lab Caches?
A very frequent question: of course we will have Lab Caches at the MEGA am MEER. Like other MEGA events we were allowed to create ten Lab Caches, they will go online on Friday, June 19th at 5 pm parallel to the Friday event beginning GC54BHM.

Where can I park my car on Saturday?
The MEGA am MEER Saturday event takes place in the center of Bremerhaven, so – unfortunately – we don’t have an own parking place for the attendees. A list of different parking garages / car parks is available in our listing as Parking Waypoints.

Where can I camp with my tent / caravan near to the event?

An (English!) list of caravan parking lots is available here: List of caravan pitches,and a list of camping places here List of campsites. In addition, the team member Tudor99 has placed geocaches at caravan pitches near the event: Campen I and Campen II, with these you will find the places even easier ;-)

Are dogs allowed during the event?
Yes, of course! It is an outdoor event and if your dog can deal with crowds and other dogs he is welcome!

Which exhibitors are attending the MEGA am MEER?

Please find the list of attending shops here.

How do I get my event tickets? and my order?
All information about the order process is available in our announcement of May 5th and in this website entry.

Help! My order PDF file is gone, what to do?
Please write an email to shopfragen [ät] mega-am-meer [dot] de and tell us your adress and order email, so we can create a new PDF for you.

Will there be the possibility to buy event tickets during the event?
Yes, we sell event tickets during the event at the Info-Pavillon / info point (not the registration desk).

For what do I need the event ticket?
Did you already logged a “will attend” in the MEGA Event Listing? – If yes: Nice! If not: Please catch up on it! ;-) Why to buy tickets then? The event tickets finance the MEGA event, respectively all parts that cost money – also for us although we don’t want to make profit. Things like stage, stage equipment, pavillons, broschures, child program and all these parts are paid by the event tickets. Without this program points, we wouldn’t get enough geocachers to Bremerhaven at the same time for a MEGA event – the caches are always here! ;-)

Are there any geocoins / shirts left?
We indeed saved a little amount of MEGA am MEER coins for the event, to sell them on the Info-Pavillon / info point. The coins will cost 13,00 EUR per piece. If we have shirts left, we will sell them by Saturday afternoon at the Info-Pavillon for 13,00 EUR per piece. The DGzRS Cpins are also available, they are sold on the event Saturday on the ship Hermann Rudolf Meyer.

I’ve booked an activity (Klimahaus / DSM / …) and I would like to use the ticket on Friday. How do I get my order in time?
Please write a mail to Andreas and tell him, for which time do you need the activity ticket and by which time you are in Bremerhaven.

I have other questions!
Please write an email!

Announcement: 6 weeks until MEGA am MEER

Dear attendees of the MEGA am MEER event,

six and a half weeks until the MEGA Event in Bremerhaven takes place! Like announced, we’ve sent the final number of coins to Sepp&Berta and therefore there is only a small number of coins available in our MEGA am MEER Shop.

Also the event shirts have to be produced prior to the event and we have to submit the final sum of shirts at the end of May. The deadline for MEGA am MEER shirt orders is 27th May 2015. We haven’t planned to sell shirts during the event, therefore everybody who wants to have a shirt should order it until end of May in our shop ;-) .

The event tickets will be availably until shortly before the event, too. During the event, we will have a pay desk for event tickets but these tickets will have a higher price than in our pre-sale. So don’t miss the opportunity and buy your ticket now. The event tickets fund program items like bouncing castle, face paints for kids, stage and technical equipment and authorises to participate on the tombola with nice prizes of different shops and a co-ride on the DGzRS Kreutzer “Hermann Rudolph Meyer”.

In addition, there are only a few price-reduced tickets for our limited activities Weser river cruise with the ship “MS Geestemünde”, container terminal tour with the HarborBus and port cruise through Bremerhaven’s oversea ports by ship. All tours start directly next to the MEGA event location on Saturday and show you Bremerhaven’s port from a unique different perspective. The price-reduced activity tickets will only be available as pre-sale in our shop and not sold during the event.

Due to general questions regarding the order receiving procedure during the event: On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, pavilions will be available on site where you can pick up your ordered items. These pavilions will be available on Friday from 5 pm to 10 pm, Saturday from 9 am to 10 pm and on Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm at the particular event coordinates. To pick up your order you have to bring a print of your received order PDF with your order details. With that procedure we want to avoid that unauthorized people try to get your items. If you can’t find or access your PDF anymore, please contact us via email to shopfragen [ät] mega-am-meer [dot] de as soon as possible (not just a few days before the event is starting) and tell us your order adress and full name in that request mail. We then let the system generate a new PDF for you. If you have any other questions regarding the shop and orders, also write an email to the mentioned email adress.

If you have general questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us via email!

We look forward seeing you at the MEGA am MEER!
Best greetings,
the MEGA am MEER Orga-Team

T-Shirt sizes

The MEGA am MEER Shop is online, next to tickets and coins you can buy MEGA am MEER shirts for men and women there. To get to know which size is perfect for you, just take a look at our sizing charts for the shirts:

All measures in the tables are in centimetres, the width is (like usual) measured on breast level, the length from the shoulder to the bottom of the shirt (see figure below).
