St Patrick's day parade

So far two of us (Thierry and myself) are planning to meet up at Le Chat Noir in Brussels where we will meander over to watch the festivities. Let us know if you want to come, wives are very welcome as well as children. It may be a bit cold so bundle up. Le Chat Noir is just next to Bourse metro stop. The address is

Jules Van Praetstraat 8, 1000 Brussel

This is just a meeting place as the restaurant may be closed :(
My number is 0479589021 in case you get lost


I was told that George will be marching in the parade!

Orval Abbey Open Door Day, Sep 14th & 15th

Orval monastery's famous brewery will have an open door day on September 14th & 15th.
Inscription starts at 08:00 on May 2nd. Demand is expected to be high, but numbers will be limited.
Depending on STUDS interest, we could organise a group visit and car-pooling, probably on the Friday 14th. The abbey is a two hour drive away. Please indicate whether you would like to participate.


The next quiz will take place on Monday 19 March. Participation costs €10 per person. SOs are welcome too.

The specialist country round will be on Albania.
A tombola will take place. Please consider bringing along a prize for the tombola. All proceeds go to UNICEF.

Come on!!!!!

Last chance for curling signup is 17 Feb

Kurling Karl says last call for curling team sign up is 17th of Feb so if you have not already signed up please do so that is as long as you are interested.

As I understand it, the fee for curling will be 25 euros per person.

Karl says,
There is a huge area for the none players to watch. with seats and tables.

The maximum number of PLAYERS at one time is 30.

I don't think we will reach that. If we do, we can always split the times. ex: 13:00-15:00 and 15:00-17:00.

I would need the final numbers by Feb 17th.

Dear Quizzers,

The next quiz will take place on Monday 19 February at The Open.

Please let me know if you (and your SO) would like to take part. The usual rules apply - €10 per person to participate, maximum 4 per team.

A tombola will also take place during the evening. Please consider bringing along a prize to donate.

I've booked two tables, so first come, first served.

The specialist country will be on Guatemala.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Kind regards,


Curling with Karl March 4th at 1400

Hi Studs and families

By now most of you are aware of the Curling club in Zemst that Karl told us at Studs on Friday. He has arranged a 2 1/2 hour class and play time event on an official Curling arena. Any interested parties please comment here or tell me in person.

The date and time will be March 4th (Sunday) at 1400 hours. The cost should be a maximum of 25 euros as long as we have at least 10 players. For that we will get our own lane.
