Meeting Dianne & Joel in Utrecht (NL)

Unread postby DuQues » Fri Dec 21, 2007 11:06 am

Who would like to freeze their fingers and toes off in Utrecht on Thursday, Januari 10 2008?

The venue: Vakantiebeurs 2008 Utrecht Central Station

Present: Several guru's, best known among them are probably Dianne & Joël.

Cost: € 11,50 (via internet, at the till € 14,-), excluding travelcost, and the vacation you may book there. :wink:

We'll be making a pub very unsafe later, maybe with a bite to eat.

We'll be meeting Phumi Dhlomo, Joep Stevens, Dianne Tipping-Woods & Joël Roerig around noon in Utrecht.

How about a bite of lunch, some yaks & laughs followed by coffee with or without "" (wine for Gwen) and perhaps dinner before we head home again?

Lets give em a warm welcome, guys. It's freezing here! (for the Saffies: that means it is actually below 0 degrees. :twisted: )

Hiya! Looking forward to meeting anyone who can make it-and I know Phumi and Joep are too. We keep telling them about this global community we have going...now they'll see at least some of it in action (and they're great people to have on board, and great ambassadors for our parks)!!

Now to convince SANParks my trip is also a business trip hehe

We could all wear something SANP, and help provide the photographic evidence?

That is NOT a 'yes' however, Gwen !

I also would have loved to come but, same as KampRunner, I also have to work. :cry:

Have a lovely time.
Want to say Thank You or Well Done to a fellow 'mite? Why not nominate them for a Kudu?

Have a great meet you lot!

We in Cape Town have set the standard.

I know what you mean Gwen. Freezing to Saffies is less that 20C and boiling is more than 25C. Talk about exagerration. I have told my family a miliion times not to exagerrate :wink:
