I don't live in Cologne anymore, it's time I handed the "English Speaking Cologne project" over to someone to move the project forward. 

Obviously, having put a lot of time an effort into it over the years I'd like to hand it over to trustworthy, ethical hands. 

The "project" in total includes: the site. the Facebook page, the twitter account, this community, and the Google+ Page. 

It needs new blood, not just in terms of ownership, but also active members, blog authors etc. It would be a fun project to take over for someone enthusiastic who understands the scope. 

Any hand-raisers?

SitP Cologne's next event will be held in English again. 

Here's the announcement in English:
The Cosmic Christmas: History, Science, UFOs, and the Star of Bethlehem

Vortrag in englischer Sprache.

Wenn es auf die Weihnachtszeit zugeht, sieht man wieder überall an Krippen und anderer Dekoration den mysteriösen Stern von Bethlehem, jenes himmlische Licht, das angeblich über der armseligen Herberge leuchtete, in der das Jesuskind geboren wurde. Über tausend Jahre lang wurde dies als Wunder betrachtet, aber in neuerer Zeit gibt es Menschen, die zweifeln oder versuchen, wissenschaftliche Erklärungen für den Stern zu finden. Manche behaupten sogar, Ausserirdische seien an der Sache beteiligt gewesen.

Hi there,
I used to go to the social get togethers on Thursdays. Are they still on? If so, what's tonight's haunt? Maybe see you there!

My English speaking fluency is bit rusty now. i want to improve it.
Please feel free to add me in hangouts, VOICE CHAT or VIDEO CHAT on any topic. cheers

What's up y'all? I just got word that come August I'll be headed to the Cologne area. I'm super stoked about it and ready to have fun. Anyone know if there are expat groups and that go out together?
