I were looking for some dates which is possible.
I was searching for local holidays which are set for monday or friday.
I found this:
15.02.2010 (Mon) Rosenmontag
02.04.2010 (Fri) Karfreitag
05.04.2010 (Mon) Ostermontag
24.05.2010 (Mon) Pfingstmontag

Also for Thirsdays because there are no Tuesday holidays
13.05.2010 (Thi) Christi Himmelfahrt
03.06.2010 (Thi) Fronleichnam

Rosenmontag is too early (next monday :))

perfect days are 02-05.04.2010 but maybe too early.


These are my suggestions.

Greetings Serdar
