Newsletter summer 2023

Kasteeldag Heeze was a success!

For years we have been participating in the Kasteeldag in Heeze on Whit Monday, but never before have so many members been present for the screen demonstration in this unique setting! We can therefore look back on a very successful day. The castle manager thought so too, who thanked us extensively for our participation.

We’ll be there again next year for sure!

ALV and barbecue

On July 1, everyone is welcome again at our annual general meeting of members (ALV) with barbecue. The ALV is from 5.30 pm to 6.00 pm, after that we will have a nice BBQ.

We really like that we can meet and BBQ in the garden at Bart Smits, one of our members. The address is Hoogstraat 63, 5502 AV Veldhoven.

We will send an invitation via the WhatsApp groups with a request to indicate whether you will be present at the ALV and / or the BBQ. The BBQ is free for members, for family members (parents, brothers / sisters) we ask for a contribution of 15 euros, please transfer to bank account NL17 INGB 0004 2007 84 before July 1st.

Weapons of Brabant tournament

The first edition of the Wapens van Brabant tournament would take place on Saturday 3 June. Everything was prepared: competition schedule, hall, competition secretariat, first aid, prizes. But unfortunately, a tournament can only take place if there are enough registrations. And it was not our association’s fault, you were enthusiastic enough!

We will do this differently next year. Because we wanted to keep it a bit smaller and especially for this region, we had turned it into an invitational tournament. Next year we will post the convocation (invitation) on Nahouw. We also make it possible that you have to register via Nahouw.

So we didn’t succeed this year, but we have lessons that we will take with us to make it a successful tournament next year!

Second and third prize 💪

Kuzey and Rüzgar Nurver participated in the Waal Rijn Toernooien in Nijmegen in May. And not without success: they came second and third respectively. Congratulations, gentlemen!
