The website looks great, and the pre-convention activities page alone will convince anyone in a minute to attend your convention! The site is bookmarked and will be referred to regularly over the next 23 months! See everyone in Amsterdam in '08! Razz

My family will be there! We're really looking forward to a swell convention in your beautiful country!

Sjaak was kind enough to send me an English-Dutch dictionary, and hopefully I'll be able to speak more Dutch than just "Heineken".

If "Heineken" is the only Dutch word you know you will still have a great time! Wink Laughing

I will defenitly come over for 1 or 2 days, but can't be there the whole time, for me it's a too much expensive package, for that price my wife and I could have a 2 weeks holliday in the sun and I'm sure she wants that more than a vacation in Holland. So hopefully I will be able to see some of you there.

I really want to go to this convention. It would be great to meet up with forum members in person.

Wanna know something really mad.....?

Everyone thought we were nuts!. We hosted a European Convention and none of us had ever even attended one. The Jitterbugs Tent is nearly ten years old and we took a huge chance doing what we did.
Judging by the reaction, we pulled off a very successful event and have now caught the bug....

Already 6 of us have signed up for Amsterdam with a possible 4 more....
That should say it all.. What a great bunch of people the Sons of the Desert are...
Cannot wait for it....

I have seen it Liam! Too many Irishmen on an International Convention!
They serve Bavaria beer in the bar of the hotel, we have to go elsewhere for our pint of Guinness.
See you in Amsterdam/Alphen next year!
