  • Finally! A dutch meet!

    For once, a hopefull "proper" meet in Holland. We dutchies are starting to show up more and more at this forum, and as nobody seems to be pulling the robes, I'll pull it.


    The idea that was swerving in my head was to meet up in Thialf - Heerenveen at a Saturday or Sunday morning. After somewhat a hour or 2, a possible cruise sets in on a not-so-random-road through Holland. The route has yet to be picked, but I know a few nice dikes and roads through Friesland and Overijssel. And maybe, if there's animo for it, ending the cruise at a restaurant to finish the cruise with a full stomach.
    As I don't want this meet to happen on the last minute, I was thinking of a Saturday or sunday at the end of July, or beginning August.


    Sunday, 11th of August


    Okay, I need a little list of people who are definitly coming, and people who do want to join a diner at some restaurant (this so I can see if I can find a nice restaurant and reserve for us.)


    Meet + Cruise + Diner:


    - Johan (+ 1 passenger)
    - Krischan
    - Zecke
    - AlexanderB
    - NOBIN

    Meet + Cruise:

    - LeonL (+ friend)
    - Geintje2
    - _Drake_



    Total: 9

    All in: 6


    I'd say, pick a date, post it, and I'll work something out. Let me know if you like the idea of adding a cruise + diner to the meet (- Wich does mean the meet will have to start early on the day)

    Don't forget however, .. Get your friends with you aswell! I do not want this meet to be posted on any kind of social media. This to prevent people showing up that are going to mess up the meet.



    This will most likely be the route. Quite a few nice narrow corner-y roads.


    +- 65km - 1.5hr tops


    +- 56km - 1hr and 10 minutes aprox.

    I'd love to go there all the way from Denmark, but my driving test isn't until October, so I wont have a ride, and public transport will be too expensive for my pocket atm.
    Still, would be super awesome seeing activity here.

        Heerenveen.. 20 Minute drive, not bad at all.

        Depends if I have plans with the gf or wether I'm on vacation or not.

        Might drop by with the Impreza. If my brother is available, he'll come with his Mini Cooper
        Muscle and JDM don't go together..?

          Count me in, it will be a ~450 km drive for me but WORTH IT!
          I'll probably come in my Focus (unless I get a new car since then) and I'll bring along my RX-7 and Supra R/C cars for some drifting. MAAAAD.

            Thats awesome Zecke. I nearly thought you said I'll bring along my RX7. *drools*..

            Does someone disagree on the part to have a little cruise + diner at the end of the day?

              Count me in just a hour drive. And Johan if you want some help with planning i'm pretty familiar with the roads in friesland and Groningen.
              May ask some guys from the fiat club. Any date is good except 30th june (viva italia zandvoort).

              maybe we can even ask mMarty or Moog.

                looking for some options like, rebuild the standart 1300cc, get a stock 1600cc, or 1641/1976cc with dual carbs. 2liter porsche

                im more than happy to help you with questions about nearly all volkswagens
                So what do you want to do, lift it up and throw it in the ditch?

                  Ahh cool, some nice driving roads would be much appreciated I think. I don't think it would be worth it to try to get M&M here though, for now it looks like it won't be a very big meet.


                  Lets set the date (erh..) on the August 11th?

                        OP updated. Please post below if you are definitly coming, and if you are joining the cruise and diner.

                        I am still pinpointing a nice route through Friesland and I've arived in Drente at the moment (50km backroads to the Hunebedden, wich is probably a point to have a little coffee/snack break, there's a nice parking place there, it is also the place for the dutch army to practice, so we might have to watch out for the minefields.. If there's nice weather, maybe some sandy semi-offroad roads will be added.)
