We've said yes and, as Russell says, happy to pay a deposit.

Haven't heard of Tim, Jeroen, Martijn or DutchV8 yet.

The hotel and I agreed that we will confirm the booking on the 1st of May. A deposit is not required, but later this summer I will ask you to make a payment in advance so I can arrange the whole financial picture.
(Just like Jeroen arranged for the Zeeland edition.)

martine i would update this list and add alan to it and anyone else. have we started taking deposits, dont underestimate how long this takes. dont feel bad asking now you can always give it back if you are in a position to do so.
i know tim would want to come but he might have to wait till a bit closer but have a nother list called expressed interest. put conor in that list although he might not be able to come. 
anyone else up for it, come on you virage owners rally round and join the circus that is the viagra tour.
24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case, coincidence ? i think not.

I'll let the hotel know that there might be some more room reservations coming in the next few weeks, but the longer we wait, the harder it is to guarantee a room.
Other reservations, like dining, shouldn't be a problem.

everything has a cut off date, you just decide what this and when you need the money and let us all know. anyone else we can fit in later or we cant. not much we can do about it. looking good Martine.

Hotmail doesn't seem to like the creative name we gave to our tour/meeting.
Please try emailing me under a different subject title, or try emailing me at my work-email: martine.spaans @ spilgames.com
Thanks!

Yes, I would like to come but the DBS will not be ready then. It is going to be in restoration till (and I am optimistic here) summer 2011.
Can I get a ride with somebody?

Smallish update.

I am now discussing the menu with the Friday and Saturday restaurant. September is the hunting season, so specialties will include duck and other forest-dwellers.
Friday dinner will take place at Slot Zeist (old castle), a beautiful location (http://www.slotzeist.nl/).
I hope we can also arrange a group-picture there with our fleet.
For the Saturdaty dinner (http://www.hoefslag.nl/) we will have our own private room where we can be loud and merry without disturbing any other restaurant guests The saturday restaurant is famous for it's fine dining.
Saturday lunch and nosing around will be at http://www.thegallerybrummen.nl/. There is also a fashion/jewelry store and a Toy Museum for any participants who are less car-minded.

I think the total costs (hotel, dinners, lunches) will sum up around 350-400 EUR for the whole weekend, including everything (except the drinking habits of your own car of course  ).

I will provide every confirmed participant with an information document within a few weeks, as soon as all the dinner menu's are final.

Webbo has kindly offered me a seat, or at least some space in the trunk .... so I'd like to join.

I'll now look to see whether I can get a decent flight. Its Ramadan time in the middle east then, so flights are usually loaded. Will revert tomorrow.

Its good timing for me because Hovri hopes to put the bahama paint on the car by end summer, so hopefully I can see the DBS then for the first time in BY colors.
