Hello folks!

I hope you have enjoyed the warm spring days last weekend, experiencing D?sseldorf and the Rhein at its best! More days like these to come smile

Many thanks to everyone who came for the May Meetup! For the first time this year we were able to host the event outdoors and enjoy a warm evening meeting new members and those who come to our events regularly. If you have just joined our group we hope you enjoyed the evening, met new people & made new friends. We look forward to seeing you again! If you regularly come to Expat Meetup, we really appreciate your continued support and hope you will continue to join us for future events smile Special thanks to Pedro Pinho & Mark Jessop who helped at the May Meetup.

The June Expat Meetup is fast approaching! However there is a change of date and a change of location. The usual meetups are on the third Thursday of every month at O'Reillys. However because of the World Cup football coverage this June, we simply do not know if we will be able to host a successful event when there are over 90 expat members and many customers who are there to watch the football. However this is an opportunity to try something different smile

The new date for the June Meetup is Sunday 13th June, from 2pm until 7pm. The new location is the Rheinpark and this will be a barbeque event. Mark Jessop has kindly produced a map which describes the location where the barbeque will be which has been attached to this event's photo album, please follow this link:

Rheinpark is a large public park within walking distance of the Altstadt and can be reached using the U-Bahn with U78 or U79. We hope the map supplied will help you find us.

Of course, since it is an outdoor event we are at the mercy of the weather. We will keep you updated on the situation but if the June Expat Meetup BBQ has to be postponed due to bad weather then we will try once again the following week on Sunday June 20th. However we are hopeful the event will go as planned on Sunday June 13th.

For this event you will need to bring yourselves, food and drinks smile We will provide a few BBQ grills but if you are able to provide your own BBQ grill it would help so you won't have to wait too long for your food to be cooked. We would be grateful if you could assist us regarding rubbish. It would help us enormously if you would please take care of any waste food, bottles & packaging and dispose them in the bags we will provide. Because Rheinpark is a public park, we must make every effort to leave this place as clean & tidy as when we arrived so that other people can continue to enjoy this lovely spot.

We will be sending you another update this Thursday at the latest with more details. For now I hope you will mark this date in your diary and you will be able to join us for an expat meetup with a difference! It will be a superb opportunity for you to meet new members who have recently arrived or have lived in Germany for sometime, find new friends or meet with people you have met before. If this event is successful then we will certainly organize another BBQ event for July together with our regular event at O'Reillys smile

We wish you all a great week, look forwarding to seeing you Sunday 13th June at the Rheinpark! All the best, D?sseldorf Expat Meetup
