Altes Landhaus

26th Christmas meeting WEGY [Cologne / Essen / ...]

22 years after the end of DEC, our DECnett is as alive as ever.

Cancellation unfortunately also for 2021  

For the second time in our history, which has been closely associated with the "Altes Landhaus" for our Christmas meetings since 1994, we will not be meeting in large numbers in 2021 due to the Corona virus and the pandemic protective measures in place!

Since according to the planned/current rules of the government only people with 2G status are allowed to enter a restaurant, I will not actively invite to a Christmas meeting this year either. 

Although I had hoped together with Evangelos, our host, for a different situation and decision of the government and reserved exclusively for us the old country house, but the protection of health comes first. Who would like to meet nevertheless in the "Altes Landhaus", can reserve themselves with colleagues there independently a table and in accordance with the rules valid then tasty meal and chat. 

So I look forward to seeing you all hopefully in the coming year 2022 healthy and cheerful!

Invited are not only the old DECies from WEGY (ESG, COE, COO), but all colleagues from Tandem, Compaq, HP, ... , who have worked and lived with us in the region. We also welcome colleagues from other regions as guests in our midst, as in previous years!
