Summer Evening Lounge Boat Tour through Leiden

On Friday evening 26 July we will go on the waters of Leiden to make a boat tour with drinks, food/snacks and music! Are you interested in joining us? If yes, please read further.

First of all, there will be 1 boat for 8 people (unfortunately there are no larger boats... except for big groups from about 30 people...), so if you want to join us, please be quick!

If there are more people interested, please let us know! We can make a reservation for a second boat as well. We'll create a waiting list for a second one or maybe even decide on another boat solution.

For the drinks, meals/snacks: please let us know if you like...:
a. ...everyone to bring some drinks and food to have pot luck on the boat or...
b. ...us to arrange some food or drinks in advance (in this case the total price will rice a bit)

If you apply for this trip and you have to cancel, please let us know before 25th of July!

Price will depend on the amount of people. 1 boat for the evening (without accidents ;-) ) costs 100 euro's. If there are 8 people in, it costs 12,50 per person...

We will keep you updated on the changes!

    Thanks everyone for a wonderful evening and thanks to Barbara for organising the event.
    I mentioned to some of you that the 'Leiden Expat Pub Night' is this evening. In case anyone wanted to meet up again it's being held at the De Vergulde Kruik pub on Haarlemerstraat. People generally arrive around 9pm.
    Have a great weekend all, and hope to meet you again.

    NEWS:

    - The weather still looks shaky, but we're not cancelling anything yet...

    - ABOUT THE DEPOSIT:
    Unfortunately I cannot do this via creditcard (which is usual at many places), but we have to pay this in advance in cash as well and get it back after the tour (of course, in case of no boat injuries...)...

    The deposit for each boat is 150 euro's. I was thinking about 6 people paying 50 euro's (I'll be one of them).

    Can anyone please help us out with this? Thank you very much!!!

    - We are 15 people now

    I'll keep you updated on any changes!

    DECISION:

    - We meet a bit before 19h at Botenverhuur 't Galgenwater. We can then decide to cancel or go. If we won't go, we seek shelter in a nice pub/bar/other place! - Just in case: you can contact me at[masked] 0894.

    Whatever will be the outcome, we'll make it fun!!

    I look forward to meeting you tonight!

      Exactly Lionel! That was also what I was thinking... Afterwards we could also go to the indoor 'beach' in the waag (if it s still there...)

    IMPORTANT NEWS ON THIS BOAT TRIP:

    - The weather: unfortunately tomorrow's weather forecast doesn't look too shiny... I am thinking about making a decision by tomorrow around noon about if we postpone the boat trip or not. If we postpone it, it doesn't mean we have to cancel the meetup: it means we can still hang around in a pub in Leiden tomorrow evening! In that case, I was thinking about City Hall at 20h. What do you think of this idea?

    - We have 15 people attending now. There's one spot left. We decided that the minimum amount of people needed to keep the prices low, is 14. If you can't make it anymore, please let me know as quickly as possible and I will see what I can do (of course, I don't want to cancel any boat(s), but I also don't want people to suddenly pay too much!).

    - If the amount of people gets to low, for any reason, we will cancel/postpone the boat trip. However, we can hang around anyways and plan the boat trip for another week!

    Another message will follow now...

      Hi everyone! Thanks Barbara for organising this. Indeed weather doesn't look promising but might clear-up after 19h/20h. Since I could only stay until 20h30, I better pull-out... :( I hope there will be another chance to do it and if you go ahead I wish you all a great time!

      July 25, 2013

    • Barbara

      It s a you won t come Jo! But I understand. See you again soon!

      July 25, 2013

  • Barbara

    Ok the boats are full! Now hoping that the weather will nice!!

    July 25, 2013

  • Barbara

    ...in continuation of my last message (message became too long to be posted all in one):


    - Also please don't forget: do your payment in cash with me, in advance of the boat trip!

    Please let me know how you think about the first points if you have any remarks/questions!

    Best regards and see you soon!

    Hello & greetings from the Seattle area in USA.I will be moving to Leiden next month! I really want to learn Dutch & get to know people/the area. I look forward to meeting you all & if anyone has any advice on health insurance/housing,please tell!

    An update about the food / drinks: - Please bring some snacks or drinks to share. If everyone brings a little bit (i.e. a bottle of wine / juice and crisps / fruits), we'll have enough for all.

    - Since we will start the tour around 19h, you can (instead,) also bring some simple prepared dinner (i.e. a salad, fries with mayo, sausages, hotdogs, bread with a delicious spread...) with you and share it with the rest on the boat.

    - Or: if it suits your schedule better, you can eat (as well) in advance on your own, but please bring something for snacking / drinking.

    Does everyone agree with this or does someone have a better idea?

    Best regards!
