submarine sighting in Appingedam

SubCommittee chapter in the Netherlands


Postby raalst » Sun May 25, 2003 3:15 pm

Hi all,

In the netherlands, Appingedam (Groningen)
the model boating club "Ekenstein" will organise
a weekend, with some submarines showing up
(or staying submerged..).
the weekend is 14/15th of june.

The actual happening will take place at
"landgoed Ekenstein".
The event will last the whole weekend, but
opening hours are not known.

If there are any pressing questions, I can contact
the people in charge.

Anybody wanting to show off his own models
would be advised to let me know on this board,
so I can bring you into contact with the organisation.

See you there !

Ps : maybe this board is usable for car pooling
try it !
Regards,

Ronald van Aalst

Count me in for the visit. Since Appingedam is about 60K from my home, it's no problem getting there. Carpooling is appreciated. If someone going there plans to go via Afsluitdijk and Leeuwarden, pls contact me.
Who's in for the trip?

I am.

not sure about the planning, but I might go via the
afsluitdijk (My dad lives in Leuuwarden, and is expecting a
beautiful mill (=freesbank))

I'll let you know.
Regards,

Ronald van Aalst

I'm game for this.

I'll be going to the meet. I hope to see some subs. I do need the inspiration. My sub's been dragging along for quite some time.

If anyone wants to ride along that'll be okay.

My port of call is Leeuwarden.

Koeze,

you're on. If no one else joins I can drive (grijs-kenteken) if you like. If Ronald and Mart like to join (and this is what I understand) it might be handy to see if we can make an appointement somewhere on route (like the McDonalds in Leeuwarden) or some specific site close to the Klaverblad in Heerenveen.
Who's next?

UPDATE

several clubs will be present, nearly all clubs will be there
both days.
some sub-club from Antwerp is expected, which is news
for me!
also, several German guys will show up. It is not sure
if Sonar e.v. will be present.

There is a pond and an artificial basin, it is an outdoors
event.

I will most likely be there on Sunday.
I will bring my subs, but both will most likely not be
operational.
one burnt out and needs a new depth controller (with a
stepper motor this time) and the other is simply not
finished yet
Regards,

Ronald van Aalst

NO the event is confirmed to be held on 14th and 15th.

It seems the sonar website mentioned this date.
I called Sonar people to inform them just now,
after I asked the "Ekenstein" organisation to be absolutely
sure.
