For us UKers it shouldnt be that hard for us to get there.

Cheapo Flight/Ferry to Ammsterdam then we'll all meet up and hire a car or van or whatever for the weekend. Its only about 2 hours drive at the most.

To give you some dutch inside info ^^.

You can either go by train which is an +/- 2 hour journey or you can get a car, with a car it will take about the same time. I don't know which will be cheaper.

erhm other stuff to know...

it is Holland and I know some ppl are interested init, there are coffee shops in Enschede (place where the lan will be) and Amsterdam is a 2 hour drive back

the Colosseum (The building where it is in) is next to the FC Twente Football stadion (just a FYI).

Anything else just give me a shout.

Grtz Micro

Ferry might be a good option tbh.

I don't know where else we could depart from but i totalled it up and 4 of us and a car on the ferry from Newcastle to Amsterdam ends up about £125 each.

As opposed to flying which ended up as closer to £160 each, then on top of that we'd have to find a way of getting to Enschede from Amsterdam.
That said, I was searching from Newcastle Airport. It might be cheaper from somewhere else.

I'm in if you want , its not far from brussels :)

For the ppl who live in scotland or near HULL , the cheapest way to travel is to take the ferry from HULL TO ZEBRUGGE in belgium. From there i can meet you and then we take a train ( 2 hours ) to ENSCHEDE ( holland )

Problem with flying is we than have to find a way of getting to Enschede.

Maybe a Rental car/van, maybe a train but in the end it might end up more expensive.

We'll investigate further tonight!!!

The cheapest rental car I could find from of schiphol start at 105 euro, but this is a Ford Ka, ( a very small car :P ).

A train ticket from "Schiphol - Enschede Drienerlo" will be 23,10 euro for a single trip per person.

If you guys consider going, you can get cheap tickets from stanstead to dusseldorf for 30 quid both ways. Depends how much extra luggage you guys take with you. Still one hour and half to two hours drive, but being at dusseldorf there should be a high amount of car rentals there too. You can get a touran or passat for £270-280 for 5 days from the 17th-22nd or so you can fit like 5 people in there or so instead of a ka which is 2.5 depending on luggage / how big the people are xD and you dont have to drive a girls car :P

Well, we had a big talk about this last night and we think it would be a good idea for some sort of big rush road trip.
Problem we're runing into is getting enough cars. I can bring mine but thats only 4 (small) people at the most with a little tiny bit of lugage space. We couldn't really take Jay's hairdresser-mobile as it drinks petrol and only has 2 seats and no boot. Greeny can't leave his Mrs without a car fot the week, Richard's van only has 2 seats and nobody else drives :(

Stoner has suggested we rent some sort of big motorhome or camper, but by the looks of it they're very expensive, we'd need 2, we need drivers with special licenses. The driver problem is an issue too if we where to get a minibus of some sort.


The road trip plan would consist of tounding everyone up in the UK, heading to Dover, getting the ferry (very cheap) to Calais, driving to Amsterdam, spending a night there, then going to the LAN the next day. And the return journy would be pretty much the same.

Drivers we would have:
Pig - car with 4 seats, probably too young to drive most rentals.
Jay - car with 2 seats, not really an option to take this.
Richard - Van with 2 seats, possible this could take the luggage if needed.
Greeny - Can help out with driving but no access to a car.

Non Driving passengers:
Ducky
Stoner
Born(Probably)
Ghostchanter
Scribbles


Flying would be an option too.
We've managed to find cheap flights to Amsterdam from Leeds/Bradford and London.
This would mean Stoner, Jay and Richard could go from London.
I could drive to Leeds and get Ducky and fly from Leeds/Bradford.
That leaves Greeny and Lucifer in Liverpool and Born in Wales(lol) Without any way to get to either Airport.
Then even if we do all fly to Amsterdam we'd have to find a rental car (or more likely 2) to get us to the venue.


Sorry if i've missed anyone off, this is just a sumary of all the stuff we where talking about last night. Put your name down, where you live, if you can drive, if you have access to a car, ect and we'll see about fitting you in.
