    Hi everybody,

    While London is calling soon, we have to look ahead for the next adventure of Euroguestock in Tawny Owl's nest, as Jezus-Eik, a hamlet of Overijse, just south of Brussels. As you know the date is Saturday 9th of June. Place to be is GC De Bosuil, Witherendreef 1, 3090 Overijse.
    Tentative Program:
    • Jamming session Saturday till 5-6 pm
    • Dinner nearby
    • Concert 8-11 pm
    Hotels close to the place are:
    Hotel Panorama, Hengstenberg 77, 3090 Overijse, Belgium
    Hotel Avalon, Waversesteenweg 329, 3090 Overijse, Belgium
    Hotel Soret, which is very nearby, is fully booked in that period. If someone did a booking there please let me know.
    Please inform me as soon as possible if you come, I can try to get a group arrangement in Hotel Panorama, where I know some people.
    If you have any questions feel free.
    Please forward this message to those who are not tagged.

    I've provisionally booked a room at the Hotel Panorama.
    I am able to cancel it if needed. :D

    I’m coming, possibly with family in tow...although I’m trying to discourage them...:D If they wanted to come would they have to drive into Brussels or is there easy train access?

    I just looked online at the first taxi I could find and it's 35 Euro from Brussels station to the Hotel Panorama for up to 3 people.
    Hopefully I'll be able to share with someone.... @simoncroft :D :D

    It's another Eurostar journey this time. Quicker than driving and cheaper too!

    The venue is just 4 km away from Brussels. There are buses that can take you to a Brussels tube station in less than 10 minutes (There is a dedicated bus lane for those 4 km!). Around 4 buses per hour.

    @BegForMore , many thanks for getting the ball rolling for Euroguestock IV !!

    Maybe we can take some pictures of the venue and proposed restaurant this weekend and post them here!

    Also, I suggest that on Sunday morning we could all go for a relaxing and hang-over friendly :eek: walk in Sonian forest, an UNESCO World Heritage site, which is a 30-second walk from the venue.

    I would love to come, and it’s pretty close as well, but unfortunately it is on my daughters 6th birthday, so I’ll have to let this one pass.

    Can't you pretend that her birthday is a week earlier? At that young age your daughter would probably not notice, and she would get her party earlier! Is this a creepy suggestion?:D:D

    I doubt it, but you can ask her yourself in a few weeks!

    Birthdays are a big deal when you’re that age!

    Furthermore sneaking out would probably result in me getting very thoroughly killed by my wife...

    By the way, if any of you will be in Brussels already on Friday, June 8 (or staying the evening of Sunday, June 10) I will be very happy to invite you for a bbq at my place (which is only a few minutes walk from the venue) :)

    @BegForMore , I noticed that there are only two or three rooms still available at Hotel Avalon and Hotel Panorama! So people should hurry up and book! There is also another nice hotel (a bit more expensive) in Brussels but very close to the venue (10 mins by car): "Au repos des chasseurs", but even this one only has a couple of rooms left! What's happening in our quiet corner of the woods, are all these visitors coming because of Euroguestock IV??? :D Here's the link to this hotel:

    That's great! I really recommend people who think they may come book the hotels right now given the little availability! From what I've seen (and confirmed by Stu) you can book and cancel without penalty.

    Worst case scenario, someone can sleep in my music room, surrounded by guitars and drum kits :D:D
