Last Call for Haaksbergen

The IBIS tournament in Haaksbergen will take place from Friday 12th to Monday 15th April, 2013. Those who are wishing to go should contact me by Saturday, 15th December, 2012; preferably also with the name of a sighted guide.

The organised party normally travels by ferry from Harwich on the overnight ferry. Thus it means meeting on Thursday, 11th April and returning to Harwich Tuesday, 16th April, 2013.

The cost is normally around £80-£85 for BCA members and £130-£135 for non-BCA members. The earlier the trip is booked, the cheaper the price.

For those wishing to participate in the Haaksbergen tournament and wanting to make their own travel arrangements, they can do so, but I am required to know their travel arrangements in order that I can notify the Dutch organisers so they can pick them up from Hengelo.

UK organiser: David Hodgkins
