Not in Benelux, but in neighbouring France! I will try and keep tabs on this thread, hopefully, will make it to one of the future meets.

The update as of now is that we plan to meet on the 10th March. Deciding on a time and location, but it might be in either Breda or Mechelen. Will update the thread once decided. Do let us know over here whether that works for you or not.

Cheers
March 10th works for me. Let me know the time and place once decided.

We will be hosting our first meet on Mar 10th near Belgium border, at Zundert. Exact location will be updated closer to the date.

Looking forward to meeting you all.

From Munich here.
I will be missing the March 10 (Zundert) meeting by the looks of it.

Sorry. Due to a change of plans for this weekend I will not be able to make it to the meet-up tomorrow. Have fun, and hopefully I can join the next one.

Four of us managed to meet-up as per the plan we made. A couple of the others that were planning to join had to back out for various reasons.

Weather-wise it was a terrible day, haha. But, this didn't dampen our spirits at all. On my way to the meet-up location, there was a point where the rain and wind was so heavy on the highway, that I just couldn't see anything in front of me, despite the wipers working at their maximum speed.

We all reached safely however, and I was the first to arrive at the location, but was 20 minutes early.

Stratos arrived about 10 minutes after me in his Toyota C-HR, and we immediately started a conversation about our cars in the parking lot. A couple of minutes later, we saw Jeroen pulling into the parking lot in his beautiful Jaguar XJR. Not very long after, kraft.wagen pulled into the parking lot in his BMW 116d.

It was a very enjoyable 2.5 hours spent together. We ended up having lunch together along with our drinks. Besides the introductions, the discussions were on topics ranging from traffic rules and car safety, to aviation events and photography, and even land acquisition, haha.

Time flew by before we knew it, and since we all had other things to take care of, we had to leave, but not without taking one photo together. We didn't manage to take any pictures of our cars, but that is mainly due to the weather.

The drive back was even more difficult, as the wind had picked up to around 60 kmph! This meant two hands on the steering wheel at all times, and constant corrections to the steering, as the wind kept on blowing the car off the road.

From L-R: Stratos, kraft.wagen, Joxster & Jeroen

It was an afternoon well spent! I hope that other members are also able to make it for the next meet-up.

Cheers

It was a pleasure meeting you all yesterday and thanks for the great conversations.

Good summary joxter. Glad you both made it against the crazy high winds. Looking forward to the next event.

Wondering how I missed this one! Though I stay about 160km away from the venue, I could still have made it - had I seen this thread before!

Ah! I missed this one, blame it on my erratic/ad-hoc travel schedule especially when on a short business travel.

Next time round, I hope to meet you guys for sure!

BTW, when's it planned ?

Good going guys! Haven't seen an international Team-BHP meet in quite a while.
No pictures of the cars?

Indeed, it was good to meet the guys. Unfortunately due to terrible weather and all of us leaving at different time we didn't get to take pictures.
