Thanks for the in-depth report, Igor. I so want to visit Slovenia--my father
was from there (Ljubljana, or when he was born there, Leibach) and I've
never been.

>  From Blender Course in Brezice, Slovenia on short: Impressive!
> Of course not only because I was there, but also because are people from

> now on, so thank you people from Brezice for such a pleasant lesson! :)
> Blender Course was organized in a newly restored and very nicely
> equipped youth center McB, where we explored Blender funky workflow for
> a three days. A new colorful group of Blenderheads followed
> Catmull-Clark modeling and other Blender tricks surprisingly fast, so we
> soon transposed lessons into more advanced stuff. Of course there's much
> left to say, but in a three days we went a way beyond what I planned.
> Ha, I had luck with a participants again, those already familiar with a
> similar tools raised course tempo, and others quickly followed.
> Professor Joze even nick named me with an Eustahije Brzic (funny blue
> racer cartoon character, ha, thanks Joze, yeah, i enjoyed that cartoon
> myself too!:) , but a youngest member Tim wasn't bothered with the
> lessons speed at all, so we proceeded with the same faster, funky and

> So, thank you Mateja for such a great Blender happening and a short
> coffee, if I knew that I would order at least capuchino for sure! :)
> While I've been walking around the streets in Brezice, I found the best

> them, from Warsaw, Paris, Amsterdam,... ha, to Venice and Rome even!) \o/

> Oh yes, that knight's hall also looks great! There's also a grand
> concert piano on which I played my favourite variation on Orff's
> composition. No one complained, hmm, maybe it wasn't that bad after all,
> but I know that I enjoyed acoustics the most! :)
> Mario, one of attendants, mentioned that it's possible to hire that
> place for a fair price. So now it's already decided where will be
> Blender award ceremony in Slovenia! \o/ I hope that we'll be able to
> fill all the places soon.. :P
> For sure I wish more of such a pleasant experiences in the future and I
> hope to see you soon!
> Cheers,
