Sat 16th Sept - A good night out for you & your S.O.s

In just over two weeks, the Staging Post De Kam will be presenting a great show, see poster and web-site for more details. STUDS members William, Kjeld, John and Steve are involved in setting up this evening. Bring your SO along and support us. It would be a good occasion to get a STUDS group together on one table.

Lunch at Wezem-Break Friday after Hermans

Hi everybody, anyone wishing to hang out with George this Friday after Hermans let me know. I am going to reserve a table for 10 at the Wezem-Break
restaurant in the Sport Hall of Wezembeek Oppem. Some of you could go straight there like George who lives next door to that. Others can meetup at Hermans at noon and we can arrange transportation to Wezem-break. I can carry an additional 4 persons.

The next quiz will take place on Monday 11 September.

The specialist country round will be on Nepal.

I've booked 2 tables. The first to respond get the places. Pmesse send me a private e-mail if you wish to attend on


"Pot Luck" or "Facilitated" BBQ next Friday 25th

Herman's is closed next Friday and the long range weather forecast is good, so I propose that the STUDS meet in my garden for drinks and a BBQ. I propose a "facilitated BBQ" i.e. I provide the tables, chairs, tents, kfs, glasses, BBQs etc. We all provide the food, drinks, cooking expertise and clearing up. Basically if everyone brings the meat he wants to eat plus drink, and some of you bring savoury and sweet dishes for several people then we should cover it. As a common dish, I will provide sausages for all.

Meyboom - Brussels folklore

Each year on the 9th August since 1213, the Meyboom has been planted in Brussels. The Meyboom (a tree) is felled early in the day in the Forest de Soignes. It is carried to Brussels via several watering holes. It is due in the Grand Place at 14:45. Then it is carried to Rue de Sables where it is “planted”.
