I need to warn against too high expectations. I haven't received a reply yet, not even a reading confirmation to my email, and even if I got a positive reply the tank hall would still be under construction.

The HGM would offer us a guided tour on April 25, one week before officially reopening (May 1st). I am however inclined to shift the main event (why I'm visiting Vienna in the first place) to end of October since that bloody virus creates a rather fluid situation with unpredictable consequences for international travel.

Just in time to surprise Jami with an anniversary trip to Vienna. :D

I'll cast the final decision in the coming days, NLT Wednesday. That's not to say that you couldn't go there, naturally. But it seems at least likely that eSim Games will shift the annual Steel Beasts Conference to October, which was the professional background for me to visit Vienna in the first place. Not that there aren't a lot of other good, tasty reasons to go there.

I am inclined to agree with you. Hopefully by October things will have settled down a bit.

 

I fear the Toronto I&I will have to be postponed, also.

I suspect that you are correct, but there's no reason to decide now.

So, we've shifted our conference to October, at which point the HGM should be open again in any case. What's more, on Monday 26 (Austrian National Holiday) the ÖBH (Army) will have a bit of a public show day in, as I understood it, Zwölfaxing, the barracks of the Austrian Armor School. It's supposed to be a historical show/display and the details are usually made public only at relatively short notice (probably reflecting a, umm, dynamic planning process).

I'll post news about this event here in this thread as I receive them.

 

There is a non-zero possibiity that parts of eSim Games might still congregate in Vienna for an internal meeting, and if some people banked on this somewhat special visit to the HGM prior to its official reopening and they think they can't make it in October, well, let me know this week if I should pursue the private tour on Sat, Apr 25. If the stars align in just the right pattern and you blow your bone flutes of madness R'lyeh shall rise again and we'll make this happen after all, Corona be damned.

I think that force majeur is effective. I feel like I am in a badly-written Black Mirror episode.

 

I think we also now know why the chaps are address now.

Well, the possibility for that dropped to zero, if that wasn't obvious already.
