Belgium Meeting 2006

Anyone going here ???

I am going with my Defender, it would be nice to see some other 4x4's.

Any oversea visitors looking for simply accomodation for wednesday (or sunday) night give me a shout, got some space available at my home (belgiumborder).

Total registrations is at 91 at the moment, and we always have at least 10% just arrive without registering.

So it's going to be goood! We have LOADS of presentations lined up, the bonfire will be on, cool rideouts, some of that famous French/Belgian cuisine is on the cooker, and the venue is awesome!

See you there!
