This has just come in from Belgium via E-Mail.
The euromeeting is approaching and yet you have no news from Belgium. So here it is !
I’m pleased to confirm you that RT 54 Thuin will organize the euromeeting next September from the 18th to the 21st.
RT 54 Thuin only counts 7 members and former members like me have been asked to give a little bit of help. I’m in charge of the website but as I’m not a geek, it’s not ready yet. I promise to settle it out.
Meanwhile the program is almost settled. It’s quite similar to the 2006 program but I know those who were here enjoyed it.
– Thursday 18th : welcome & party
– Friday 19th : visit of the city of Thuin with a detour to the worshop of a chocolate-maker
lunch at the tram museum
diner & party at the abbey of Aulne
– Saturday 20th : visit of the « Bois du Cazier » http://www.leboisducazier.be/
It was a coalmine now converted into the industry museum. A catastrophy occured on the 8th of August 1956. A fire caused the death of 262 miners mostly issued from immigration. The site is now on the Unesco World Heritage list.
diner & party at the Biercée distillery http://www.
– Sunday 21st : brunch & farewell
The cost is 300 €/pers.
Those who which to already register may send me a mail.
Can you please forward this mail the to Tablers and former members of your own clubs who are not registered in the above addressees list and may I ask one of you, per country, to send me an updated list of RT members and former members with e-mail addresses ?
For those of you who which to come by train, make sure you arrive at « Charleroi Sud » station.
Our friends from Ski, Kristinehamn and Pescara should check Ryanair for flights to Charleroi (for Ryanair Charleroi airport is called « Brussels »).
Or you can fly to Brussels airport.
We hope to see many of you in Thuin next September.
See you soon.
