We really want you not only to benefit from the battle of wits that will ensue, but to taste, see and enjoy Southern Germany and Stuttgart, and ofcourse, an excursion to Heidelberg or Hohenzollern Castle and Tuebingen will definitely be included. In addition there are plenty of facilities:
In Stuttgart: Sports centres, swimming baths; rack & pinion railway, TVtower, stationtower,Wilhelma Zoo; Staatsgalerie (art gallery), Lindenmuseum(prehistory),Altes Schloss (state museum), Daimler-Chrysler and Porsche AutomobileMuseum; Planetarium. Cinemas, theatres. For further information, visit the City of Stuttgart’s website, http://www.stuttgart-tourist.de, or telephone the(English-speaking) staff at Stuttgart Marketing, Tel. (0711)-222280-0.
In vicinity: Heidelberg, Tübingen (old university towns), Black Forestand Swabian Jura(skiiing if weather suitable).

Weather
Stuttgart during the month of February can be cold (temperatures down to -25° C. are known!) and wet. Snow is becoming increasingly rare, although the higher areas in the vicinity (Black Forest and Swabian Jura) sometimes have enough snow cover for gentle downhill or cross-country skiing. You should bring some warm clothing for outdoor activities, including such useful heat-trappers as hats, gloves and scarves.

Currency
Germany’s currency is the Euro, which at the moment is worth just over oneUS dollar.Eating and Drinking Stuttgart is well supplied with restaurants, fast food outlets and snackbars and stalls. Prices, as in all capital cities, tend to be higher in the city centre than in the suburbs and towns around. However, if one avoids obvious tourist traps one should be able to get a pizza for eight euros and a bottle of coke for three euros, or to have a reasonable three-course meal for 30 euros.

Newsletters
There will be 3 more newsletters:
mid October 2003
mid December 2003
January 2004.

In our handbook we would like to publish profiles of the teamsparticipating; so by the end of November please send us a short (max. 120 words)description of your team (with photos), and of your triumphs (and disasters)to date!

Oranizers: Angelika Höness and Michael Pates
