The time is fast approaching for our TE Meeting in Rotterdam.
Rinie, Bert & I have been busy with the preparations which are shared with you on the website:

http://home.tiscali.nl/choff/TE-Meeting_Netherlands.htm

We plan to rendezvous at the Spido (boat) departure at 12:45 on Saturday 13th May.
Willemsplein 85
Rotterdam
(just under the famous Erasmus bridge)

A few (Richard, Norbert, Rudy, Isabel, Jack, Line, Didier and Jeppe). have informed us of their arrival details.

It would help us if we were to know what time you plan to arrive in Rotterdam, and if you have a mobile phone available, please tell us your number.

We are estimating the cost of the weekend to be Euro 75. This package includes:

75 mins Spido Harbor trip
Entry to the Dubbelde Palmboom museum
A guided tour in Delfshaven
Dinner - (soup, pizza or pasta, dessert, water, 2 glasses of wine and coffee) in Da Gaetano restaurant. Saturday evening

Entry to the Arboretum Trompenburg
Lunch in the Bazaar restaurant - Sunday

We are assuming that the guest participating in the Saturday program only - will stay for dinner. Please let us know otherwise.

If you have any questions, please let us know.
We are looking forward to meeting you and having a great weekend. We have ordered sunshine :)
Elaine, Rinie & Bert

Dear All,

Thanks for sending your info to us as requested, - there are just a few who still need to inform us when they will arrive and provide us if possible with a contact number.

As mentioned earlier the cost for the two-day package will be Euro 75 per person. We have strived to keep the costs as low as possible and have managed to obtain a small donation from the City of Rotterdam. We would like to collect the Euro 75 from everyone onboard the Spido, so please make sure that you have enough cash. The persons only staying for Saturday ---- will be charged Euro 56,50.

A few of you will arrive before the official start on Saturday 13th May at 12:45 - 13:00 at the Spido Boat - and we thought it may be nice to meet up Friday evening if you are at a loose end for a beer.

We are proposing the Hotel New York - the link will bring you to directions http://www.hotelnewyork.nl/eng/quick/index_directions.html
Koninginnenhoofd 1
Rotterdam

We shall be there around 20:00 --------

Looking forward to meeting you all Friday or Saturday,

Elaine, Bert & Rinie

Dear all,

There's something that I wanted to let you know, we have a full moon on May 13, and if my information is correct, she should be visible from 10 PM. Of course, after dinner there's a possibility for a nighthunt for those who want to go. Rotterdam by night is attractive as we have a beautiful Museum harbour, situated near the starting point Spido. Look at this <a href="http://www.trekearth.com/themes.php?thid=3285"target=_blank>theme</a>.
So, it might be useful to bring your tripod.
See you all on Friday or Saturday,
Rinie

Hello Rinie,
About the Moon, its phase will be 99%, so full as you said, but take care it will not go high in the sky, maximum about 20 degrees.
Try to find a place with a good view to south east!

See you soon
Didier

Hi Didier,
You sound like an expert!
Open or download Google Earth and find us a place where she shines over the water ;-)
See you Friday, I'm looking forward to it.
Rinie

Hi Cessy, there's room for more, come over! ;-)
I hope we have good weather, the last days the light was flat and overcast.
Thanks for the good wishes.
Rinie
