It’s time for another special celebration of Jumalauta! You only turn sixteen once per each base greater than 6. That calls for the party of a lifetime, of course, so join us, put on a complimentary tiara, open a beverage and let your inner teen princess shine at JML SWEET SIXTEEN!
Of course, we will again have compos of the highest quality, to tell who are the true princesses and who are just boring peons. Further details about the compos can be found below. Life’s never boring when you party with us!
We have once again booked the majestic Härkälinna castle in the heart of Finland, Hauho. The place is about 35 km from Hämeenlinna and 60 km from Tampere. For more information about the party place, check their website. We will of course have sauna which we'll try to keep warm whenever it's needed. We'll probably have some small snacks and drinks for sale, but otherwise it's basically bring-your-own-whatever. There's a kitchen in the castle you can use.
We have booked some cabins right next to the castle, which are available for our guests. Each of the cabins will of course have beds for a handful of people and they are also equipped with fridges, microwave ovens, bathrooms and other amenities. There's also beds for 20 or so people inside the castle in case you just want to crash there. The beds will have mattresses and pillows, but you should bring your own sleeping gear (e.g. sleeping bag or bed sheets, pillow cases etc.).
The partyplace is located in Hauho, about 35km from Hämeenlinna. The easiest way to get there is by your own car (or hitching a ride from your fellow Jumalauta members).
By car: Drive 2.5km from Hauho on route 12 towards Lahti. Turn left to route 3223 (Sappee, Luopioinen) and drive about 2 km. Turn left on sign "Leppäniemen Hirsihuvilat" and drive down Leppäniementie about 2 km. When you arrive to a yellow farm house turn left and drive forward until you see the magnificent castle!
By public transport: You can get to Hämeenlinna by a train or a bus. Please note that last year's celebration was a special occasion and this time we won't be offering any pickups from Hämeenlinna. So if you need a ride, talk to others who are also going.
For GPS: Leppäniementie 196, 14700 Hauho
Tickets are 20€ for a regular entry or 40€ if you want to reserve a spot in a cabin (cabin spots will be handed out on a first come, first serve basis).
