As determined and discussed here the first choice for our next Benelux meeting date was october 3 (backup october 24 in case of bad weather) and as a venue Dordrecht got the most votes.

I suggest we meet between 10:30 and 11:00 in "Dordts Genoegen", Voorstraat 256, 3311 ET Dordrecht for coffee (and cake), that's nice and central for starting our walk. But if there are other ideas on that just post them here, these are just suggestions to get the discussion going.

We could follow "Rondje Dordt" or any of the other dedicated walking routes that can be found lower on the page (street art/hoogwater/leermonumenten/hofjes/bier en wijn.....) or combine some in our own route. Suggestions welcome

As far as I could determine from the other thread the participants so far are:

- @Jetsplace + Marcel
- Snegren
- Fred_S
- darosa
- rvangompel
- Harm vb
- Dopol
- Dirk
- der dickgg (guide?)
- pegelli


Pls. post below if you would get your name added or removed from the list and any other suggestions (starting time/meeting place/route to walk/equipment to take or anything else that's on your mind regarding this meeting).

October 3rd has been penciled in. Now starts the big struggle what to bring (aka do I need a mule or do I go light). I fear neither of those options. I have three certainties:
A7iii with Meyer Optik Domiron 2/50
A7RM4 with LA-EA5 and Minolta 100/2
Laowa Zero-D 12/2.8 (17/4 with shift converter)

3 October has been noted down in the agenda :-).
We'll see what to carry, probably a full bag

What to carry, for the lensaholics among us always the most difficult question before a meeting

Certain is two bodies (A7ii and A7Rii) and my walk around zoom (Tamron 28-200 Di III RXD) but I need to add some fun lenses to that. Still time to think it all over......

Another consideration is that oktober 3 is week 39 for primes/zoom ends between 270 and 276 mm. So a 135 mm with a 2x converter would work but I would need an Olympus OM 2x converter which I don't have , does anybody else have one I could borrow for the day?

And it will be oktoberfest as well, which dictates at least one prime lens added to the bag.

Why is life so complicated?

If for weather reasons the backup of October 24 is used you can also count me in

Knowing Dordrecht 'on my little thumb' it will be a privilege to be your guide.... sort of.

What to take with me? All, except my telelenses, I guess, and soms other stuff.

However, I can shoot with one camera at a time so, taking two with me, dunno yet.

I'll travel by train, just 1/2 hour away .

For the ones coming by car: Spuiboulevard is easy to reach from the highway.

Did we choose the right place?

I found this little rhyme:
“Tiel is niet viel, Bommel is rommel en hoe dichter bij Dordt, hoe rotter het wordt.”

I guess we'll fit in nicely there

It starts with: in Nijmegen beginnen ze te vegen.

"Dichter bij Dordt, hoe rotter het wordt. Maar zit je er eenmaal in, dan heb je 't naar je zin".....
To complete the rhyme!

Found a cheap Panagor 2x converter for Olympus OM in a second hand shop. And for oktoberfest I was considering the OM Zuiko 135/2.8 anyway, so I guess this now solidifies part of the plan.
