OK, at Leo's suggestion we now have a plan for a third Bennelux Dyxum meeting this year on saturday november 13 in the Antwerp Zoo to try our lenses (and zoom ends) greater or equal than 300 mm. (other lenses welcome as well )

In case of bad weather (the current forecast looks splendid) we can move to the 14th or 28th.

Opening times of the zoo are 10:00 - 16:45. I suggest we meet around 11:00 in "Grand Cafe Flamingo" on the entrance square of the zoo. For people who want to arrive later no problem, the park is relatively small and new arrivals can give us a call (or SMS / WhatsApp) so we can direct them to the right place. We only need to exchange phone numbers by PM to do that.

You can buy your tickets beforehand via internet or at the zoo itself, cost is 31 € for adults and 29 € for people over 60. Antwerp Zoo Website - Info/Tickets

Outside in the park there are currently no Corona restrictions, inside buildings they request to wear mouth-masks and for the eateries you need a valid COVID QR code

After visiting the Zoo there's also the suggestion to visit the Antwerp Central Railway station, which is next door to the zoo and a splendid railway cathedral. We're too late to ask for an official photo permit there (you need to request that 6 weeks beforehand) but I'll still send them an email to see what's possible. I've often walked around alone and taken pictures without a permit but always handheld, probably using a tripod without official permission is asking for trouble.


Participants:
- pegelli
- minolta_mutley
- Dopol
- addy landzaat
- Fred_S
- ........

Several people indicated availability and intention to come in the other thread, but pls. sign up below so we get an up-to-date participant list.

Ah, that's too bad. 13 is a no go for me.

Wow, that is quite expensive - Dutch Zoo's are around €25,- But I noticed it is the going rate in Belgium.

I liked my first DM, so, put me on the list.

That's a pity Leo, it was your idea.

I'm sorry, at this moment next weekend will be, when including Antwerp Zoo, too overloaded. I won't be there.
Maybe next time.

I feel the participation/energy a bit waning. If others think a small meeting so quickly after Dordrecht combined with a much longer trip is too much that's very understandable. Or it might be we're trying to organise this with too little lead time.

For me it's no problem, only a 25 minute tramride and I have a subscription with free entry to the Antwerp Zoo so I might go anyway even if we're only two or three (or even if I'm alone).

Let me know what you think.

I think the lead time is too short: me and my partner are quite regularly planning various trips in the weekends, so a longer time in advance would be nice.
