13 August 2016 - International Postcrossing Meeting Antwerpen Summer 2016


Dear postcrossers,

We, Veke250 and Mieke1985, are organising a meeting in Antwerp.
Antwerp is known as the city of diamonds. Our beautiful city has a lot more to offer then only diamonds. We think it’s also to expensive for the most of us  ;) but we prefer to spend our money at cards and stamps; not!? There is the Cathedral, ‘Het Steen’, lot's of museums, the zoo, the statue of Brabo at the Grand Place, one of the most beautiful train stations of the world and more.
Antwerp is easy to reach by train, tram, metro, bus and car. (We even have an airport! But it will be better and cheaper to fly at Brussels Airport)

If you come by car. On this link you can see the car parks in Antwerp: http://www.antwerpseparkings.be/CMS/index.php/car-parks


Our meeting is sponsored by Panda Post China. Every participant will recieve free postcards from the panda post:


DATE : Saturday 13th of August 2016
TIME : 11 o’clock a.m.
MEETING POINT : in the main hall of the central train station at the grand stairs right in front of the ticket offices. It’s also ideal to make directly a first group picture! :)
RESTAURANT: Eetcafé T'putke
Handschoenmarkt 6
2000 ANTWERPEN

When everybody arrived we will walk first to the post office for the people who need stamps. Then we will visit some postcard shops and do a little sightseeing in between.

Later on we go to the restaurant to eat something and to write/sign our postcards. Everybody is welcome to the meeting and can stay how long as they want. You can join the whole day or only for the postcard shopping or the postcard signing in the restaurant or just to come and chat with us.

Till the end of August there’s in front of the train station also a big wheel.
If there are people interested to go on, you can do it. (the price is 6 euro/person for a ride)

We choosed this weekend because it’s for a lot of people a long weekend. If you stay the whole weekend in Antwerp we can advise you to go (or we can go together if you want) on Monday to the Rubensmarket. It’s a big market in the citycenter and all the sellers are dressed in Rubens-clothes so special to see and to do if you never did or saw it before.

Please let us know if you’re participating the whole day or just only the shopping part or the restaurant. If you need to think about it; we can put you on the maybe list. We were thinking about an official meetingcard but only if there’s enough demand for it so if you’re interested give us already a yes and a number. You can change it or add cards later but then we already know something.

If you have questions you can send a u2u to one of us.

We hope to see you next month! Many greetings from Antwerp!

Veerle and Mieke

Because the group is becoming really big, we're having a stop for the entries for the moment. If there are still friends of you or other people who wants to attend the meeting, they are going on a waitinglist because we still have some people also on the maybe-list and they get advantage on the new ones. I hope you all understand.

Hi,
Please put me on the maybe list!
And if I come, I sure would love some official postcards of the meeting! (around 10, I would say).
When should I give you a definitive answer?


Cheers,
Catherine.
