YFYS recce - preparing the event

08 March 2014

Today, the organizers (José, Miange, Daniël and Nelly) had organized a meeting for all the helpers of the YFYS event. Several extra hands will be needed during the three days, because, as MG car Club Belgium, we want to receive our international guests in the best possible way. Hence, several people will be located at various points, to show our visitors the right way.
We mainly got the event on the Saturday explained, which will give the visitors lots of opportunity to discover the history and the crucial role of the lock system in Nieuwpoort. But there will also be time for sightseeing and visiting the wonderfull town of Nieuwpoort. The oher days we will be covering bigger distances and get to see more of the environment and other places of intrest.
