FleetLOC invades the Netherlands...

Much like '40 the Dutch stopped resisting within hours...

On the eve of Friday last week FleetLOC (minus 'I can go anytime I want because I'm retired' Colin M and 'I havent given you a good excuse why I've gone early' SC-009) set off for a grand journey across the water of the white cliffs, towards the Inn of Many Beers.

As we were driving up to the ferry terminal (and note, next year I'll be taking the tunnel, 2 hours on a boat each way is just not worth the £50 you save) an orange Evora pulled in behind us... much to our surprise...

We got to talking to the driver, Bert, during the trip and invited him to join us at Cloggy Bash 09. We then all non-voyed to Antwerp, in what is probably the first Elise/Evora non-voy in history. Go us. Bert very kindly showed up on Saturday afternoon and a number of us did pax rides in the car. I'm sure you can find a thread about it somewhere, if you really tried.

Despite the lateness of our arrival, we still managed a grand entrance, in proper Hampshire style...

..and sat down to the first of many, many, many beers. Big, cold, Dutch, yummy, golden beers. Hmmmmmm. Beer.

Saturday morning, at the crack of 10ish, started with breakfast, in local dress, to respect the culture of this fine, flat, land.

Unfortunately they weren't serving beer at breakfast, something I've been reliably informed will be corrected for next year. The afternoon's activity consisted of Brody and Porker getting ultra competitive, loads of cows and cow shit, Porker losing a Tag in a field, more cow shit, some balls, some clogs and cow shit. A good time was had by all, but mostly by the cows.

The evening can really only be told in the form of Hollywood style flash backs...
