Whaaat?  :o

I only received an email that they are looking forward to my arrival and I also booked via their homepage....so this is the difference in the way the Dutch treat the Germans and the Hungarians ;D

lol - i think they got a message from the hotel in hilversum about the german gathering outside with 5+ crates of beer :-)

btw... i also got the only "look forward for your arrival" email...

but this email is more than i ever got from other hotels i booked :-)






there is too much butter on those trays

I haven't received a mail like that, so apparently they fear the viking beer drinking capacities. Rightfully so!  :spaceace:
All I wanted was a Pepsi!

Hey guys,

Just got of the phone with the hotel. The difference is that people who have subscribed for a "Valk acount" get the free welcome drink.

So I guess Bela did this (maybe a few years ago already ? ) either at the reception or maybe on the website ?

Anyway, that's the reason for the difference :)

So go get a "Valk account" for free drinks and lots of spam mails ;)

You really called them to ask? Seriously?  :D


We bring our own german beer!! :)
I've put it in the fridge yesterday and hope it will stay at least a little cool during the 6 hours trip via Belgium to Ridderkerk ;)

Sounds great! ;D
André is right, I have a Valk account and read their spam newsletters every year, that is why I deserved a beer. ;D ;D ;D

But of course I called them !!! We are Dutch after all....free is good AND nothing but the best for Eurocade guests ;)

We brought raw herring from Holland to Milano last summer in something like this:

When we staid over for a night we asked if we could put it in the Hotel's cooler, which was OK :D

Marco is still alive so I guess the herring survived OK ;)

Talking about herring: Monkfish will bring some nice herring and other fish snacks...and also some smoked salmon as a side dish for dinner, MJAM !!!  :spaceace: :spaceace:

Ok guys, think I'm about ready.....asteroids has run for about 2 hours without problems....

Gravitar is not going to make it after all, it's too quirky. Also I noticed the spot killer is not working and I don't want to burn a hole in the tube....sorry :)

Everything else powered up and runs....

For those who travel tomorrow.....have a safe and pleasant journey, the weather will be just great.
Regretfully there is rain predicted for the Saturday and Sunday but temps not too bad.

Can't wait to see you guys.....and have a lot of fun ! :D

The car is loaded. ........ Did a test run for 4 hours, everything checked out. ✌ The tl tube was not working, fixed it, bad connection due to heat and age of the whole rigg.

Forgot to lock the control panel so it dropped out while loading the cab, including the back glass 😨😨😨😨😨 it dropped on my shoe and I had a cut in my hand ...... But the glass ended on the carpet in one piece 👍👍👍👍😄😁

Lucky escape, only one wire came loose so we have to solder that back tomorrow. Is there a soldering iron available?


Guys enjoy the evening... See you tomorrow.
