:page_facing_up: MEETUP PLAN: We will visit the MFO Park and go to the Blue Tower which gives a great view over Oerlikon.
There are geocaches at MFO and Blue Tower, if somebody would like to search them :wink: → GC4XK33 and GC9XGF3 (you can solve this mystery at home)
Afterwards we’ll go back to the train station and meet the second group. Together we’ll go to tibits Oerlikon. We will go together to tibits Oerlikon to sign the cards and to have dinner.

Because WPD is on Tuesday, we will have 2 groups.
One meets in the afternoon and we will have some activities ( MFO Park and Blauer Turm).
The other group will meet the first group at 17.00 at the train station.
The time is NOT yet exactly defined (I will take care of arriving trains).

@aGnesTR Thank you so much for the design of a meetup card as presented in the first message. I am delighted as it shows what became of the area of the former engine factory Oerlikon.
But I had to smile discovering the small pictures of envelopes while written underneath that we meet for the World Postcard Day :wink: Could it still be changed?

I can still change everything :joy: … there are 8 months to go :wink:
You don’t like it because there are letters? Would you prefer postcards? Or nothing?
It is hard to find postcard cliparts

That’s right, I like your idea of a clipart on the card. I would prefer a clipart of postcards or the design of pencils, or stamps, rather than envelopes, as Postcrossing is about sending postcards and October 1st is the World Postcard Day.
But what do the other participants think about the clipart? Am I the only one seeing a problem of envelopes vs. postcards on the meetup card?

I like the design. To be honest, the envelopes did not stand out to me in a negative kind of way. To me the envelopes symbolise snail mail in general. :slight_smile:
