Here it is, the post that really gets it started.
The last week was full of writing mails and agreeing on how to begin. About project ideas - thrown in the virtual room by one side, then improved by the other side.
We decided on one first thing: in a good tradition we are going to be "contact clubs" before becoming twin clubs. This means we will exchange our meeting minutes - after having them translated to English.
On Thursday 25th of July it - so tomorrow - Galatasaray RAC has its meeting, and RAC Bremen has just made it to send the translated minutes from the last "working meeting". Aysegül, president of Galatasaray, will add the Bremen minutes to their own ones and will then distribute them in the meeting. This will be the first "club public" thing to do - really exciting for all of us :)
Additionally, during mail conversation our first project idea (next to the blog) was born:
we will collect recipes - the favourite ones from members in Germany and Turkey - and add them in a cooking book. Some of them will also be published here.
Then we will have a "dinner event": in the same week, maybe even at the same night, we will meet in groups at one members home and cook - a recipe from the other country. If the internet works with us, we will even hold a skype meeting during this event.
How does this sound to you?
