Final spurt for the online-shop

Dear Fellows,
the GIGA-weekend at Zollverein is coming soon.
Therefore here are some last important information:

– You are able to pay via bank transfer until 20th May 2016, 23:59. If you are going to book your tickets or shirts later, you will be only able to pay via PayPal or „Sofortüberweisung“
– Our online-shop will be available until 3rd June 2016, 23:59
– Make sure to buy your tickets via online-shop. Otherwise you will have to deal with a very long waiting-period.
– Maybe there will be a few coins and shirts available at our information desk. But don’t suggest plenty.

Soon you will get more informations about how to get to the event at Zollverein.

Glück Auf,
Yours Anton

New Event-Shirts

Dear fellows,

The sizes and colours of our shirts are going to change.
Unfortunately we noticed that our shirts didn’t fit very well. Size 3XL often was like size XL. Now we’ve found an alternative.
We decided to choose a product that is more high-quality. Therefore size 3XL will be like 3XL. ;-) If you would like to check whether your ordered size still fits, have a look at the table of sizes.
There is a little disadvantage while changing our shirt producer: brown and pink coloured women shirts won’t be offered anymore. Alternative colour for pink is cherry/berry. You can preview the colours in the online shop.

If you would like to change your order because of the new table of sizes, send us an e-mail:

Thank you for your comprehension.

Glück Auf!
yours Anton
