    Announcements: Yesterday's Sinterklaasavond was a super evening for all of us who attended.
    Zwarte Piet was a bit on the pale side so we called him PC Piet. The venue was pleased with our meetup and everyone found it a good location. I will try to reserve it again for our meetup on Wednesday the 18th of December. No shows:
    In spite of the many repeated messages asking people to be considerate to those on the waiting list we still had eight " No Shows", they stopped Paul , Perla, Mick, Alice etc from attending.
    That cost me as organiser 8 hours work for nothing. They are on my black list now. Please remember it's not all about you it's about us!!

    1st Sinterklaasavond:
    This was for the majority of you your first taste of the Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet Dutch custom and I could see you all enjoyed the evening. This made the time and effort I spent in organising this special meetup worthwhile.
    Thanks for the kind remarks posted. Photos:
    The photos will be posted soon.

    RSVP policy: Sinterklaasavond
    1.This meetup is only for regular members not for first timers. First timers can RSVP for next weeks meetup.

    2.Everyone will go on the waiting list and then you will be put on the RSVP list. This makes it easier to organise so please bear with me.

    3.When you get on the RSVP list you should get an email to that effect. Also check the meetup page for your RSVP status and further information.

    4. This is a new venue and I have posted the route from CS to it on the meetup page. I just have corrected Google's streetview.
