Hello to all LEF newies, veterans
and heroes!
As time goes by …
A few more months/weeks/days (depending on when you read these lines) and LEO EUROPA FORUM 2010 will
proceed in the beautiful city of Sopron in Hungary near the Austrian border. We did and still do our best to ensure
that this will be one of the best LEFs in LEO history. On the following pages you will find out what we are planning
to offer you as a program.

Some words to the new participants

Every LEO started to join a LEO EUROPA FORUM at some point. You will do that in August 2010. Be prepared for a
whole week of LEO spirit and some sightseeing and get in touch with Austrian and Hungarian hospitality, culture
and history. This ELIC (European LEO Information Centre) should be a guideline for the Forum, a small guide on
what to expect and what to bring. The program is wide spread and should help you to improve your LEO skills
(Leadership, Experience, Opportunity) and to build international friendship with LEOs all over the world. Have a
great time, enjoy being a LEO (not only on the Forum) and bring new thoughts, experience and ideas the other
participants can learn from. We will be happy to get to know you in August 2010. It will be a pleasure to welcome
you at our LEO EUROPA FORUM 2010 in Austria and Hungary.

Some word to the LEF experienced LEOs.

All of you who already got in contact with the LEO EUROPA FORUM 2010 have a first impression what this LEF will
stand for: Back to the roots of LEOnism as well as having a really great time living the LEO spirit together for a
whole week. We learned from the former LEF orga teams, we got inspired by you and your ideas how to organize
a great LEF. The result will be seen in August 2010, but you can already get some good impressions of the upco-
ming Forum in this ELIC. Some program points have changed, some are still the same and some are new – all of
them together define LEF 2010. We promised to organize a different LEO EUROPA FORUM and as you can see we
are on the best way to fulfill this promise.
We will be honored to see all of you again in August 2010 in Austria and Hungary! Keep the LEO spirit alive until
The LEF 2010 orga team

If there are still questions left from your side just ask your Country Contact Person (CCP) listed on the last page
of this ELIC.

LEF 2010: What is good to know in advance? Why are things the way they are?
There are no kangaroos in Austria (shame on the guy who had the idea for this stupid t-shirt) and being hungry is
not every day‘s problem in Hungary.

To Austria:
Some program parts will take place in Austria. If by any chance you did not have the great opportunity yet to
pay shamelessly high prices in ski resorts, you did not watch The Sound Of Music or Sissi I – Sissi III, here is the ulti-
mate crash course for the land where the Red Guys came from.
First of all, you will be surprised that it is not tradition to color your face red. Silly hats on the other hand are traditi-
onal, but nobody wears them (except some old gentlemen driving VW Golf I). Austria is famous for One-Hit-Won-
ders (Opus, DJ Ötzi, Falco), geniuses who died before their time (Mozart), Frosch, bad football teams and winter
sports. Except the winter part you should get a good impression during August 2010. Don‘t be scared, enjoy it!

To Hungary:
Most of the time we spend in Hungary. The cultural differences to Austria? Many – but not too many. Everybody
who has already visited this country knows that Hungary is famous for the Red Bull Air Race, moustaches (the LEF
orga team lost a bet so they had to shave), spicy cuisine and the Hungarian wine.
As is the case with Austria, you will find exactly one guy whose face is colored green. You will find this Green Guy
in his natural environment (every single party he is invited at) – and Hungarians sure know how to party! That is
what history tells the world about this country. Furthermore, Hungary has no mountains at all. When an Austrians
can cover a distance by ski, the typical Hungarian has at least a stable of horses for it.

Where will the Forum take place?

Well there is no discussion about that it would be less stress to join a LEF that takes place directly at Vienna Inter-
national Airport or at Budapest Airport. But we would like to show you a bit of Austria and Hungary. We decided
for the city of Sopron in Hungary near the Austrian border. Here are the reasons.

The city is a really lovely place with a historic city center, a famous university including a lot of student´s pubs and
it is situated in a wine-growing region near the Lake Neusiedl. The city is big – but not too big for a LEO EUROPA
FORUM and after a few minutes of driving you are at the beaches of the lake or in the middle of nowhere. Sopron
is influenced by Austrian and Hungarian history and culture, both languages are official and since centuries it was
a place which guaranteed one essential promise: Uniting People. So we will in August 2010.

Hotel Fagus
From LEOs who have already participated on a few LEFs you can take it serious: This hotel rocks!!! Fagus is loca-
ted in the middle of a forest, it has its own big park, a spa area and a highly competent and well talented Chef
de Cuisine. We will have our own indoor and outdoor party area, most of the rooms have a separate balcony
and the prices are LEO-friendly too. So let this LEF paradise be ours!

LEF program highlights in details Original invitation flyer

Monday August 21st – LEO-LIONS Pan-Euopean Picnic
„Uniting People“ is the motto of the LEO EUROPA FORUM, which will take place in August 2010 near this historical place.
One of the principal pillars of the LEO movement is the idea of peaceful coexistence – the same idea that united the
people of Europe 21 years ago. In 2010 this European idea will be celebrated anew at the very same site.
LEOs from all over the world, LIONS, politicians and citizens from the Austrian and Hungarian border regions will come
together in order to celebrate a free, borderless Europe. Therefore, `Uniting People´ as the motto of this LEO EUROPA
FORUM is the perfect message to send to Austria, to Hungary, to Europe and to the world. And it will be sent from the
perfect location: Sopronpuszta.

Program: • presentation about the historical events in Hotel Fagus – it will give you a better understanding of the
importance of this area and the historical happenings
• meeting people who participated in 1989 crossing Sopronpuszta; guided tour through the area –
walk on historic ground and learn things you will hardly find in a tourist´s guide
• picnic – well what a LEO-LIONS event would it be if there was no food? Therefore we will serve you
typical Austrian and Hungarian dishes
• workshops – play the same games Pandi, Gábor, Dió, Tamás and the others played in their childhood,
get a further feeling of 20th century history or just have a talk with the other guests
• group picture – guess how you will look at the LEO-LIONS Pan-European picnic in 2029 ...

Every day´s night fever

As you can see on the pages before, the program of LEF 2010 is exciting. Even more exciting will be the nights!
We will have a separate area of the hotel restaurant in combination with the big park. We are in the middle
of nowhere, so we have the opportunity to party LEO style. Long, until the End and in original LEF style – that
means some crazy theme parties. Bring your dresses to the Forum, be creative in pimping yourself and keep
the good mood until the end of the week.

What to be prepared for.

Saturday 21st: The ultimate Welcome Party – we will introduce you to Austrian and Hungarian highlights. Dress
however you feel like except totally red and green with colored face. That‘s someone else‘s job.
Sunday 22nd: POC – the Presentation of the Countries. For the preparation get some old clothes that can get
dirty, afterwards have a shower and dress the way your Delegation Leader wants you to (whatever it may
mean) ...
Monday 23rd: 35 Years LEF Birthday Party: Dress for celebrating LEF, the LEO movement and us!
Tuesday 24th: Austrian & Hungarian Party – dress red and/or green – everybody can be a Red or Green Guy!
Wednesday 25th: After one whole day of working or a great and noble Social Activity let‘s dress like some guys
who did other great things. Be invited to the Elvis & Marylin Party!
Thursday 26th: After the Gala Evening we will come back late to the hotel.
So keep the dress code or change – your choice.
Friday 27th: LEF Ending Party – wear the last proper clothes you have.
What else can we say.

Dress code
A LEF should be both fun and work. For the first: surprise us! For the second, especially the official parts of LEF,
formal clothes are recommended.

For swimming
The hotel has got its own spa area with sauna, gym, whirl pools and swimming pools. Lake Neusiedl is quite
close to Sopron so you will have the opportunity to go swimming. The hotel offers towels but we suggest to
bring your own big towel, swimming suit (or the Austrian speciality `Nockerl Hose´), flip-flops and suncream.

For the LEO Pan-european Picnic

Please bring a blanket to sit on. Just like in the movies :).

For the Social Activity

We already wrote that on page 9 but please help us in organizing one of the greatest international LEO Social
Activities: we need shoe boxes, toys, sweets, clothes, school stuff, sanitation products and writing materials.
Thanks in advance.

For activities outside

Bring at least one pair of sports shoes and one garniture of clothes that can get dirty! Let‘s see what happens.

For the Gala Evening

Black tie or traditional elegant suit for men and long evening dress for the ladies. Let‘s be awesome!

How to come to LEF
Well there are quite a lot of possibilities to go to Sopron – for us it is not difficult because it is not too far.
For all the other LEO delegations: come by plane, by train, by car or whatever you find. If you come

By plane
We recommend going to Vienna International Airport – by car it is only about 45 minutes from Sopron. If you
chose this option we can pick you up by bus.
If you arrive at Bratislava (SK) or Budapest (HU) Airport let us know – we will organize mini-busses to bring you
to Hotel Fagus. For this occasion we have to demand a little fee of 20 €.

By train
The best way to go to Sopron is to pass by Vienna. From there you take the local train from Vienna Meidling
which goes directly to Sopron every hour.

By car
It depends from which direction you come:
Passing Austria/Vienna: Take the highway A3 (E60) until it ends at Wulkaprodersdorf – then the A-Road 16 (in
AT)/84 (in HU) until you reach Sopron.
Passing Austria/Graz: Take the highway A2 (E59), change at Katzlsdorf to S4 – then at Pöttelsdorf to S31 until
Wulkaprodersdorf – then the A-Road 16 (in AT)/84 (in HU) until you reach Sopron.
Passing Hungary/Budapest: Take the highway M1 (E75/E60) until Györ – then A-Road 86 until it ends at Nagy-
cenk – then the A-Road 84 until you reach Sopron.

If you get lost in the Alps or somewhere in the Hungarian Pampa, just call your County Contact Person :)!

Guess what can happen

Once upon a time a real WoRKING CLaSS HeRO named TiMMäääääH got the ELIC. He
read it, found out that Hungarians and Austrians are rather PaRTY PRiNCESSes or
PaRTY PRiNCEs than MaN EaTERs so he took it like COMMaNDER CooL and joined LEF. On
the first evening he met a real DaNCING QuEEN, in his eyes MiSS SoPRON 2010. He was
to nervous to dance with her like a DiSKO PARTiZAN. The bar keeper realized and
told him: SiR DRiNK-a-LOT, you will dance like a BeASTIE BoY! Female LEO´s CHOiCE! He
did, was officially crowned to the LoRD oF The DRinKS and became PRoFESSOR CHAoS
as he lost his room keys. He won the lady by his dancing, but just for dancing.
Conclusio: Don´t spend your whole money for drinks – rather buy a few t-shirts!!!

Can´t wait until LEF?

Well this should be no problem. What we can offer you is to show you the capital of Hungary during the days
before LEF starts.
Besides the historical and architectural attractions the LEOs from Budapest will be pleased to show you their
city – during the day and during the nights.
So you will have the possibility to visit two European capitals during one LEF. That‘s new :)

We can organize affordable accommodation for you, or you can find one on your own if you like. The Prepro-
gram starts on Wednesday 18th August, the big highlight will be the 20th – it‘s THE national holiday in Hungary.
So get a mustache, check some Hungarian Forint and get into party mood even before the official LEF starts
in Sopron.

Further Preprogram information will be available on our website in time.
