******************************************

Update (17-Mar):

Folks,
* Meeting point: The START banner in front of the white tent: http://goo.gl/plAQK Time: 09:00.
* When you get your registration letter by mail, it'll contain a small blue booklet. That's the stempelkaart, which you'll have to get stamped at regular intervals on the day of walk. The first one is at the white tent. Get your card stamped before you come to the meeting point.

* Plan for the day: For those who are taking the train from Amsterdam, note the schedule:
08:18 Amsterdam Centraal platform 1, reaching Zandvoort at 08:49

* The start tent is about 10 mins walk from Zandvoort station. See the booklet for the route. There'll be lot of signs & tons of people walking towards it; you can't miss it.

* IMPORTANT NOTE: We'll be waiting till 09:10 near the STARTING POINT for the rest of the group to catch up. If you are not there by 09:10, you are on your own. We'll not be waiting at the start for anybody.
* Please note my number: [masked]
* Don't forget the usual stuff: good shoes, drinks, sandwiches, camera, umbrella, etc
* And of course, don't forget to bring the stempelkaart!!

See you all next Sat!

      Let's take the boulevard route instead of the beach route to avoid the wind.

      March 22, 2013

  • rhiannon

    He he, according to my google calendar Venkat has sent the end date here as 12 midday - is the wind-chill gonna make us faster?

    1 · March 22, 2013

    • Venkat

      Meetup assumes a default event duration of 3 hrs if end time is given. OTOH, it is in fact a good idea ;)

      March 22, 2013

    • Venkat

      *not given*

    Weather forecast for Sat: cloudy, light drizzles & temp just above freezing. Beach winds will make it even worse, so dress warm :)
    BTW, 2 seats left in my car. Give me a shout if somebody wants a lift. I'll be going via Amsterdam Zuid.

    What a shame, I won't be in Holland till late May. :-(

    If anyone has a UK bank account, they can donate to charity (WSPA) and stand a chance of winning some cash back by making a guess of how fast / slow I walk on my 'Guess2Give' page:
