I am really sorry, but I can't be there at the 4th of september. It would have been great to see Leuven through the lens of a camera and meet y'all.
Have fun!

NG Event : Leuven
« Reply #32 on: August 13, 2016, 13:07:30 »
As Sunday the 4 th of September soon will be there, it is time to take up this thread again.

- I suggest we meet in the morning in front of the railway station. There are several cafes, but Brasserie La Royale seems to be open from 10 am, which is fine. Let us meet there around 10:30? Underneath the raiway station there is a large parking lot.

- Who will be joining us? This morning I went to the tourist office to collect 15 maps of the city. 15 is not a hard coded restriction, though...

- If someone would like to visit the city the night before, I can provide shelter in my house, some 10 km east of Leuven. It might be nice to do some night city photography.

Joost, I just got back from my holiday, sorry for the late reply.
I have to look at my plans and agendas and if I am free I will gladly spend the night in Leuven.
Thanks!

I'll be there on the 4th. Not sure for the night before but I don't need accommodation anyway.

Sorry I cannot be there.  On the Saturday I have a wedding on one side of my family.  On the Sunday I have a golden wedding on the other side of my family.

Have a great time, all.

Leuven is lovely. I once was in a relationship with a girl who lived in Leuven. As can be expected I have been there quite a few times between 2003 and 2005.

Even though I would love to visit Leuven again, we will not be able to make it because Kristina is bed-bound until our firstborn is born. A little safety precaution. All is well with both Kristina and our unborn daughter. Both me and Kristina do wish you all a lovely day though and do look forward to both impressions from Leuve during Kermis, as well as to join in future NG gatherings.

Hello,

our NG Leuven event is planned for next Sunday, September the 4th.

So far the following persons have indicated that they possibly will participate:

1. Joost
2. Bruno Schröder
3. Frank Fremerey
4. Jakov Minić
5. Nicole
6. Thomas
7. John Geerts
8. Chris Dees
9. Airy

Is this list still accurate? 
Meeting point is Brasserie La Royale,  in front of the railway station, at 10:30. Underneath the raiway station there is a large parking lot.

The proposal for an extra-Saturday-night session is still pending. As for the shelter, there should not be a problem. I have 3 spare bedrooms, 2 of which actually contain a bed. I have 3 additional camp beds.  Just let me know if you are interested, then we can make further arrangements.

Joost

Werner (alaun)? Will we share a ride again?

Joost. Our family are at an event in Bonn the night before, so I cannot make it to Leuwen for the night. I will be there in the morning though

I have to share that i will not be joining. I have some other event to attend to, my daughter's football tournament (and i'm the team's trainer).

I wish all of you a lot of fun and can't wait to see the pictures.
