Some points of advice Jan 11, 2008

Dear all,
It may be wise to bring an umbrella anyway!
Furthermore, if I am not mistaken, tomorrow will be the football match Feyenoord-PSV; for those of you travelling by train, it may be a point of advice not to leave around the time the match will be finished, because of the crowds ...

PSV? Jan 11, 2008

Great, that's all I need. A day in Rotterdam with ten thousand hooligans from Eindhoven - I could have stayed here for that! How about moving the PowWow down to Brabant, Albert; it will be very quiet here tomorrow!

Absolutely no need for panic Jan 11, 2008

Then we will move away even further from the centre to have dinner in an area that is totally uninteresting for football fans.

Well before our esteemed southern colleagues get on the train back home.

My apologies ... Jan 11, 2008

Hi everyone! I do hope you'll understand it was by no means my intention to cause any panic! If I did, I apologise for that!

minus one Jan 12, 2008

Hello Albert,

Annette has hurt her knee and can hardly walk. I will still be coming but I'm afraid it will be one fewer for the boat trip and meal.

Luckily she doesn't play for PSV....

Icy, yet warm ... Jan 13, 2008

Hi Albert,

Thank you so much for a great powwow! Despite the icy wind during the walk and boat trip, it was a warm meeting. Nice to see old friends and meet new ones. Hope to see them all soon again!
