Meeting Middelburg Saturday January 21 2017 [Sign up closed]


Hello all!

It has been a while since there was a meeting in Middelburg, but after some requests it was about time to gather in the lovely Capital of Zeeland again.
A nice start of the new year, I hope!

Jetske and I will be organising this meeting, where we will do a tour visiting cardshops and have some lunch/dinner in the city.
Some may know we had some great dinners at Mediteraneo, but unfortunately, the restaurant is closed :(
Some may also know we had the most amazing High Teas at Wooncafe.

So, what is our planning for the day?

Gathering
At 11 o'clock, Middelburg train station. Walk towards the stairs at the far end of platform 1, where the Check out points are. Go around the corner and you'll see a mail box. That should do it I guess ;)

Parking your car
Middelburg is an expensive city to park your car in. You pay from 8:00-20:00h, 2 euro per hour.
If you insist on parking your car near the station, you can park it in Garage Kanaalweg. It is a few minutes walking from the station.
Parking your car for free is an option in the area Dauwendaele (with the exeption of Dauwendaele shopping center, you'll have to get your parking disk out and the limit is 2 hours)
Parking shouldn't be a problem in Roozenburglaan, Dauwendaelestraat, Rusthofstraat, Kriekenhofstraat. It is around 10 minutes walking to the trainstation (go through the tunnel and up the stairs to arrive at our meeting point)

Parking map and walking directions
When parking your car, make sure you set your navigation system to either one of these streets:
Roozenburglaan
Dauwendaelestraat
Kruitmolenlaan
Rusthofstraat
Kriekenhofstraat
Torenhofstraat

Walking to the station is quite easy: On the crossing Roozenburglaan/Goudend/Dauwendaelestraat, walk straight ahead towards Saffier. Follow Saffier (you'll make a slight left turn). Turn right at Parelplein (second street). Walk straight ahead. You can see the trainstation already.
Cross the parking and walk through the tunnel underneath the station. Once up the stairs (you'll see the check-out points here), turn right. On the corner of the Station building you'll see the orange PostNL mailbox. Here we gather.
Here is a link to the map with Parking area and the walking route

If you want me to walk along, let me know, as I will walk towards the station aswell. Be sure you're on time then!

Please read the following announcement by NS, if you travel by train and pass Rotterdam
http://www.ns.nl/reisinformatie/calamiteiten/let-op-werkzaamheden-d...
http://www.ns.nl/reisinformatie/grote-werkzaamheden/zaterdag-7-zond...

Shopping
I guess you are all interested in seeing what Middelburg has to offer.
Our route will include
Carfo (Small store, Inkognito, art, Correspondances and other square shaped cards BUT it is quite an expensive store. Think 3 euro per square card)
Dan Hartog (Chistian bookstore with a nice assortment Marant cards for 25 cents each)
Bruna/Boekenvoordeel (Postal office, get your stamps here! Along with touristy postcards amongst others)
So Low (Find your cheap stickers here!)
Pippoos (For the creative ones)
Primera (Another postal office. Didn't get a change at buying stamps? You can do so here. There are postcards aswell, touristy ones, but not only Zeeland)
Zeeuws Museum (located in the former abbey, they sell cards around 1 euro each, with art from own collection)
Afslag 29 (Christian based, they do have a nice collection of Hartung postcards, including the newest edition Dia)
DE DRVKKERY (bookstore/cd store/a bit of everything. Lots of touristy, vintage, childrens book cards, Polaroid cards, Animals, Medici, and so on! Around 1 euro a card, the square ones are usually 1,50-1,95)

For those who would love to see more:
Dille & Kamille (I think this is a more known address)
Kitch Company (Small store, only cash! They sell funny, daring, gay-themed cards aswell. I believe it was 5 cards for 5 euro, 1 card for 1,25)
Action (for stickers and tape and other creative stuff)

Meetupcard
YES we have one! No wait, we have TWO!
Scroll down to the bottom of this post and check out the designs Jetske and I created!
Let me know how many of which design (Dark (left) or Light (right)) you'd like to have!
Prices will be announced when we have a slight idea how many we are going to have to order (as we are at 125 already!)

The last option to order the cards is December 28.

Group photo
We should make one ofcourse! I guess the nicest place to do so is in front of the gothic city hall ;)

I want food!
I had contact with DE DRVKKERY and they don't make reservations for groups on saturday. They were kind to think along and gave me another option (which would be 125 euro only for renting the room), but as there already was a back up plan, I emailed a reservation to Marktcafe in Middelburg.
You can check out the place over here: https://www.amadore.nl/cafe-restaurant-zeeland/middelburg/marktcafe/
And for those who would like to get hungry right away, here is the link to the menu: https://www.amadore.nl/cafe-restaurant-zeeland/marktcafe-middelburg/...

What about dinner?
I think it should not be a problem to have dinner at Markt Cafe aswell. Just let me know if you think of having dinner aswell

How many can join?
Middelburg is not a very large city. It also doesn't have stores like Alternote or Art Unlimited.
As we are a bit overwhelmed by the amount of people wanting to join us, I emailed the restaurant to ask if we can upscale the amount of people.
And I have awesome news! They are okay with adding 10 more :D So that means everyone is able to come :D

Also, some people haven't been active online for a while. As you may have noticed, I contacted you either via Facebook/U2U/Postcrossing profile. If I haven't heard from you somewhere around the end of the year and I have noticed you have been offline for a while, I will be forced to take you off the list.

Updated.
Melanie, I will make sure the restaurant knows. I want to contact them a couple of days before to tell them the exact number of people coming.
I'm not sure if you already know by then what you'd like to eat? Perhaps that is easier for them too :)

Niki, sometime before the meeting, I will check if everyone still is able to come. This so that people on the possible waiting list may get a spot and to tell the restaurant the amount of people ;)

Hallo allemaal. Ik kom graag mee lunchen, ben te laat voor de shoppingtour, maar met de aanwijzingen kom ik er wel. En ik wil sowieso naar de chocoladewinkel chocolat Lovers aan de vismarkt. Een bezoek aan deze winkel hoort voor mij erbij als ik in Middelburg ben. Misschien ook voor de anderen een aanvulling op de shoppingtour?

I'll put you on the lunch list. If a spot opens for the shopping round, do you want to be added there?
Vlasmarkt is a bit out of route, but for those who'd like to visit, we could add Chocolate Lovers too :)

Thank you Telenn to put me on the waitinglist, if possible I will join the shoppingtour and otherwise I'll shop by myself.
