Expats Meet Dutchies Message Board › Famous last words...;)
|Lexy 'the curly g.||
One final message from me before my summer break. Finally it seems to be summer in the Netherlands. So let’s enjoy the few sunny days we have ahead.
In my email I sent on June 24th I suggested it was possible to become an event organizer during the months July and August when I am not organizing any drinks myself. Two wonderful people stepped up and volunteered to organize fun outings for you all.
Buddy Lee: Lee is an expat and is going to organize picnics, drinks, diners, etc. I met Lee during our drink in December last and she is a wonderful, fun and honest person. Hope her organizational skills meet your expectations! She met mine!
Buddy Peter Dohmen: Peter is a local and he will organize some events in our group as well. Some of you already met Peter during our last event in June at Du-Cap. Peter knows everyting about Amsterdam, loves salsa dancing and as he says himself: an expert in the Dutch language. He is also the founder of Personal Amsterdam Tours by Peter. During the events Peter tries to answer all your questions about Amsterdam but no history questions: since he is not a hystory teacher. He wil try to give you some useful tips about mainly nice places to eat and nightlife so you are able to have the best Amsterdam experience.
This Thursday (18th of July) will be the first event he will be organizing. He will send you an invitation soon to this event. There are no costs involved for the events but if you like his knowledge and tours, I'd say: reward him afterwards for what his knowledge is worth to you, especially during the tours.
Since it’s the first time I am going to let others organize events, I am looking forward to receive your reviews via email. If you like you are able to send it via email to me personally: email@example.com. I’d like to hear about hostmanship, communication, atmosphere during events, what can we do better, positive things, etc. I will reply to your email within 48hrs if it didn’t met your expectations.
NOTE: my style of organizing is not an others, but these buddies will do their utmost to be as hospital as theycan and try to make sure the events are fun in their own way.
I would like to remind you about the Venue Poll I have lined up since April last. I would appreciate it if you took 10 sec to push a few buttons. I am curious which venue you like most. Please consider atmosphere, background noises, reachability public transport etc. You are able to find the poll here.
Save the date
Please save the date 27th of September. Then I will be back with another drink @ venue Du-Cap in the Old West area.
As of September I will be looking for co-hosts again until June 2014. Please send me an email if you like to be listed as a co-host.
Wish you all a wonderful summer and hope to see you again in September!
