Meeting 22/06/2002 (23/12/08 )
Organised by RSSOC in the Netherlands
We subscribed very late :Wim Deinum had some vacancies because other members
cancelled and could provide extra rooms for the Belgians.
Saturday 10 o'clock we presented ourselves at the Tulip Inn. You need large car parks for these meetings.
Nice tour, showing us every bit of the only hill that is to be found in the Netherlands, narrow roads, nice tests, biking, wooden shoes, the
one-and-only Dutch hairpin. No wonder there's no hill-climbing competition round here. It would be boring with only one hill!
This is the first time our Sabra has crossed a river by ferry (We don't count Zeebruges-Dover).
The buffet was indeed copious - with various choices; now I understand why the English like to come to the continent. Why do these meetings only last a weekend?
The Pallasch-brothers were number one again. Michelle Vandevelde won the trophy for the best female driver. Congratulations, but nobody seems to have noticed how often I had to warn her about turning off the indicator lights.
Sunday morning: English breakfast (they drive on the wrong side, they have weird threads, like UNC and UNF, and crazy mechanics but if they're good at something - let's appreciate them). Up to "Het Loo", nice uniforms, nice carriages, nice cars, nice gardens.
Back to Antwerp; hood open, nice weekend, learned a lot, seen a lot, nice time.
And the pictures
