First meeting ever: a 2 hrs boat trip through the Amsterdam Canals

  • This location is shown only to members

 

  Update:

The weather

I don't expect a lot of rain, so we can do the boat trip, is my opinion. 

The boat is by the way ,a catamaran with a podium. This is a very stable boat. Business people often use it. It has banks to sit on, you can take music on your Ipod with you, it can be displayed. If not, the Schipper has music if we want that. Maybe people should take pictures, so we can post it .

When it's raining hard we can meetup anyway !

My idea was: we can go with a big cap (a bus, I informed already, it costs E 19) to cafe Hannekes Boom, the cafe where we should go to anyway.

It is a cafe on the water, the athmosphere is nice and easy going and the view on the water is great. We can hang around there , have a special evening, and a nice meetup.

When you have a better idea, write it down or call me.

If anyone wants more information; my number is[masked]
I am doing my best to make it a nice and special evening.

 

Grtz Renee

(organizer)

Yesterday I changed to a better boat and 'schipper', so we have the best chances to do our boat tour. He is a little bit more expensive, but much better. It has a large podium you can sit on. And banks.

Drinks , foods, snacks etc. bring them with you, if you like.

I'll keep you updated about any changes.

 

---------------------------------------------------------------

To make a start with this group as nice as possible,

I organized a boattrip to meet other group members. The date is july 26, We start at "the Hermitage", the adress is: Amstel 51, Amsterdam. We leave at 7 p.m.

The boat is already hired.

(by the way, it is not a normal 'rondvaartboot', but an half open boat, very special )

There are 15 places available, the boat trip takes 2 hrs.

We end the boat trip at cafe 'Hannekes Boom', a very nice cafe on the water the adress is: Dijksgracht 4, Amsterdam. This is very near Central Station. The boat will arrive there  between[masked] p.m.

 Group members who missed the boat trip can go to the cafe, where we end our trip, if they want that.

I tried to come up with a nice idea as a start of this  group, and tried to use the perfect weather at the moment as best as I could.

It takes E 13,- to get your place in the boat, couldn't make it cheaper, this is the best I could get.

We have a professional 'schipper' (captain) and the boat is ensured. It will be a lovely trip, I ensure you.

I hope people will like this, I certainly will.

Looking forward to meet you,

 Renee

 

It is the first meetup.  So, don't hesitate to call me if you  want more information, or want to speak me, or when you are not sure what to expect, my number is:[masked] (R)

      thanks Renee for your effort. Unfortunately, I just found out my student is back from vacation and expecting to resume classes this weekend. I see him both days so I need to prepare tonight. I really hope to make the next event!

    Also, with the boat 'better' as you say, is it more than 13E now? Also wondering, if we are unable to attend drinks after the tour, can we go back with the boat to the starting point or do we have to all exit at the pub? Just considering the walk back to my bike...thanks.

      Though it was a great idea for a first meetup, I've recently been on 2 boat tours so I'm not sure about a 3rd so soon...

      Hi Keyra,

      July 26, 2013

    Hi keyra,


    Good comment ! Answer to the first question: I myself will pay what it is more than 13 E. So there is no problem.
    I'm going to call the schipper of the boat to ask if it's possible to bring people back to the Hermitage, if they don't want to exit the pub. By the way: off course you don't have to go to the pub !! Do you have a phone number ? That's a bit easier
    You can phone me at 06-23939806.
    Hope to see you,
    Grtz Renee

      Thanks for not raising the price - that's good news!

    Hi Maryline,

    Thanks for the comment !

    We go for our boat tour, the weather is fine.
    So we meet at Amstel 51, at The Hermitage.

    See you there.

    I have just read the comments and now I am wondering if the initial plan has changed or not?
    What do you mean by: "we can go with a big cap (a bus, I informed already, it costs E 19)"?
    Do we still meet at Amstel 51, 19pm for a boat tour?
    Thanks,
    Maryline

    But I think it will all go well, and we can have the boat trip. The boat is by the way ,a catamaran with a podium. This is a very stable boat. Business people often use it. It has banks to sit on, you can take music on your Ipod with you, it can be displayed. If not, the Schipper has music if we want that. Maybe people should take pictures, so we can post it .

    Hi Debora,

    I understand your concern !
    Personally, I don't think it will rain a lot at 7 p.m.
    But when it's raining hard that does not mean we cannot have a meetup !
    My idea was: we can go with a big cap (a bus, I informed already, it costs E 19) to cafe Hannekes Boom, It is a cafe on the water, the athmosphere is nice and easy going and the view on the water is great. We can hang around there , have a special evening, and a nice meetup.

    Ola, what if it rains like cats and dogs? Can the top of the boat be closed?
