Hi

We will be there from the 7th-10th in Ypres (maybe the Somme), with the exception of the 9th, which we will spend in France for the re-dedication of Vimy and the battle of Arras.

Cheers

Marc.

PS ..you're from my neck of the woods, so at least we can understand each other... :lol:

I knew a bloke who tried to start a club for sadistic necrophiliac bestialists. I told him he was flogging a dead horse. :D

My wife and I will be there from 4th april for a week. In the Ariane bar every night! Somme for a day on 9th or 10th. Mainly Messines ridge this time plus a day on the bikes again (Oh Joy).

My website www.ypressalient.co.uk - cwgc - menin gate -has photos of me and the wife next to Menin Gate so anyone may accost me with a bottle of Westmalle (dubbel).

A good reply!

Im staying at the Ariane, so maybe we could meet up there, Steve :P

But yeah, would love to meet up with all of you. Don't really mind where, will all have to make a joint decision!

& For the sake of identity, It does really annoy me that i could have walked past some pals and never realised.

Will be over from the 3rd to the 12th. Staying mainly at Boiry Notre dame (near Monchy le Preux), but will be "flitting" between Ypres (possibly staying at Kemmel for the first few nights (fallen out with the Jeugdstadion at Ieper! :( - though I may give them another chance yet!)), Armentieres/Loos and the Somme with Arras definately on the 8th , 9th and 10th.

(When in Ieper, just look out for the (probably) slushed up Man Utd fan or the English speaking FC Brugge supporter wearing the Prussian belt buckle - it's invariably going to be me! :D )

I'll be there 6-9 April, staying at Ablain St Nazaire, north of Arras. Will be squeezing in a visit to Loos, but mainly will be around Arras.

We'll be down on the Somme (Flers) between the 9th and 14th April. Probably drift up to Lens/Lieven and also over to Bellenglise for the odd day trip.

I can't keep the kids out of Tommies Bar! so you'll find us there at least two nights that week (mon and tue) if not more........... :unsure:

haha!

I will :) Beer doesnt even taste nice :P

Thank you!

Steph!

P.S. Anyone want to arrange a time/place?

You surely cannot visit Belgium and not revel in the glories that are Belgian beers???

Encourage your taste buds.

Sup and enjoy
