    In the past we also met in London, GB in 2013, which was quite surreal, as we had not one single cloud in the sky and a heatwave. Played the PSP titles a bit.

    It'd be really cool to see old mates again, and to also meet the new guys. 2016 would be the 9th year already! Remember 2009 when eLhabib managed to come with 8 monitors, so we could play WO'HD tournaments, having (in theory) even 8 players in one race? Whew! Or the initial meeting in 2007 with so many people joining in!

    Everybody who never joined such a meeting: do it. Expenses can be a bugger, yes. In the past every location (even London) could be reached via train. International train rides can be surprisingly non-expensive, you should definitly check them (als the opposite way, by looking on the website of the foreign train company). And then there might also be buses going to the city of interest - they're the most cheapest version (but also the ones needing the most time). Also in the past getting food and sleep was considerably low, starting from 8 EUR per night and ending at 30 EUR per night (if I recall correctly). In some cases sleeping even happened in one person's home.


    Great to see the responses. But beware of the "only if" limbo: the less you decide, the more people do the same. This way 2014 was wasted. Just speaking from my experiences.

    Yeah you are right Michael, it's just hard to commit without knowing where we will be going Hope you are well though!

    I think it was 2010 when eL brought all of those monitors, I journeyed back to CDG airport with him and that huge suitcase and had to witness him trying to chat up the check in lady to try and get some money off of the extra weight baggage lol. His charms failed but it was a valiant effort! Good times

    Matthijs, good to hear you've been busy and that your family are doing great I'm gonna look up Scale racing so I know what you are talking about hehe, but impressive that you are doing so well at it My I can't believe Jonathan is an SSX player, I'm proud for you friend

    Anywhere in NL would be the preferred destination for us, Amsterdam would be great especially since I've never been! Seen Schiphol airport many times but never actually seen the city if you can believe that. Why don't you put it to a vote then it can be decided by all?

    Edit - Dre I just saw your post from before and I checked out the ferry to Hoek van Holland, sadly it runs from Essex which is miles away from us (we are up north) and it would most likely be a lot cheaper for us to fly, that would have been one awesome road trip though and thanks for offering

    Your mileage may vary, but in the past each of us amplified safety for the whole group.

    Ah, stinkleroy - that's also ages ago, sadly. I will enjoy every single one seeing again, no matter who. Plus the new ones. Seriously, I can't remember one guy who I even tended to dislike.

    Matthijs had used some song lyrics I recognised to open his post, so I was finishing the line for him.

    Wonderful initiative ... I like to think that I could be there
    I visited the Netherlands .. but many years ago, I'd love to go back with my wife.
    Paris and Frankfurt do not know, could be a good opportunity.
    There is a long time to organize, look to know the location
