I'll bring a Laphroaig and the intention of going boating on the canals to pick up some of those delicious water plants floating around there :D

Nice to learn about the huge interest for the "Photo Race", though. Meeting friends and fellow members is always great experience.

I talked to Werner and he said: "Probably not. Lots of Work. Greetings from Norway."

What a great idea!
I do wish that it was possible to join you all but unfortunately I won't be able to.

Ann, there will be more opportunities for a photo race in the future. It would be lovely to see you again.

As one of my favorite bands "(Dead Kennedy's) would say: "Last call for alcohol"

The NPR Committee organising this event would like to share the following practicalities.

10:00 - Meetup for coffee and draw of themes will take place right next to the Central Station in The Hague - Mingle Mush;
13:00 - Lunch and draw of the second pair of themes - BIT Grill;
19:00 - Dinner and drinks - Bleyenberg.

There's 15 of us thus far and the time is nearing. Please let us know if you are joining for restaurant reservation purposes.

The NPR Committee reserves rights to change the schedule but with prior notice :)

All comments and suggestions are more than welcome.

See you all soon, Jakov

It would also be helpful to know if you would like to run a race in your own city. If so, we will post the themes when these are drawn.
