will be transleted (smile)

The time has come. In the run-up to the #vSAPStammtisch -en, we talked a lot about the face-to-face meetings at the Stammtische, SAP Inside Tracks, SAP TechEd, SAP CodeJam and so on. We often praised the culinary specialities. From this, the idea developed with colleagues to organise a culinary together during the pandemic time (Apèro). The combination of Secret Santa and sending each other a "food package" with a focus on local specialities. When we discussed this topic at the #vSAPStammtisch its making us mostly happy to exchange the ideas of local food :)

Some rules

The following common friendly framework help us to to do the #SAPWichtelApero

  • Value of goods in the range of 20€-30€. 
  • Do not send fresh goods (e.g. fresh fish)
  • Food please in original packaging - hygiene issue in the pandemic
  • Local reference e.g. Currywurst, Berliner Weisse
  • Send in time. Deadline should be 23.3 (so that you have a chance to keep the drinks cold).
  • The question "What should I put in the package? has already been approached creatively by many. Currywurst, Berliner Weisse, etc.
  • Number of participants is limited to 50 - registration on SITREG participants are visible with waiting list function*.
  • Deadline for registration is 18.3.2021
  • Deadline for sending is 23.3.2021 20:00
  • Invitation can be forwarded, please on trustfull SAP collegues (smile) There is a waiting list function on SITREG.

How is it going

The idea is as follows

  1. Decision to participate - registration on SITREG by 18.3.2021. The sooner the better 😊
  2. Please enter your complete delivery address in the registration. So that the parcel arrives safely.
  3. Enter any special requirements in the Company field during registration
    1. e.g. lactose, no alcohol, no nuts, soya
    2. We will try to take this into account. If you have a problem with this write to me
  4. Within a few days, you will receive a confirmation email that you are participating and the address of your Secret Santa partner. You can also see the participants on the SITREG page.

  5. Please send the package to the post office by 23.3.2021 at the latest! You can also send it earlier. I think Package tracking is cool (wink)

  6. Possibly take a photo of the parcel and its contents beforehand - for a picture wall.

  7. Be happy and be patient. When you receive the parcel, simply share it on Twitter using the keyword #vSAPWichtelApero 😊

  8. The date: 1.4.2021 19:00 is meeting point on Zoom. Join the  "Apèro"

  9. Questions directly in the FAQ or to me. Please read first the FAQ. Will try to answer promptly in the evening or morning.  

  10. Everything else is in flux 😊 Hope that works for you.

It's nice that we can do something like this together. Stay healthy.
