Hi Maarten, just to confirm Mandy and I will be at all the meetups for the 1st and 2nd concert. We arrive in Ghent 11th in the evening time. We are not sure of plans for the 13th yet as we may take the train to somewhere else in Belgium to do so exploring.

Thanks Maarten,
I have seen the list. It is going to be pretty serious now. I am counting the days and of course the nights without sleep :D

I will be at the meet-up for the 5th concert and I'm happy to meet you all guys!
Maarten, I will send to you all the informations you need in 2-3 days (since I have a sick child at home at the moment, I'm not able to write more than these few words...).

See you all in Ghent,
Martina

Oh my gosh.
I noticed this thread and came on it to tell Maarten what a hero he is again this year!
I'm sorry, Maarten, but your heroics got blitzed out when I discovered that Henning seems to have enlisted Wijbe as his go-between for proposing to you.
Daaaaaaaang :shock: .

If you're bringing your wife, husband, girlfriend, son, mother, teacher, doctor or whatever and he/she wants a nametag too: no problem! Just provide all the info for him/her too!

Belgian Meet up in a brewery, how fitting!
Just last year I had a weekend meet with my Tom Waits friends in Mechelen.

Hi,
An updated list of participants to any of the meetups has been uploaded. We are close to 140 people asking for a nametag, lanyards etc...
More info to follow soon, I hope.

Another question:
How do you guys feel about screening a Leonard Cohen movie from my private collection on Aug 13 (the day between the first two concerts)? If we have a small group of people, I'll try to find a suitable place for the screening but I would need an approximate number of possible attendants... Let me know if you're interested (and feel free to give suggestions on which movie to show)!


Take care,
Maarten
