BENL FIRE Meetup – Leuven Edition

Amber Tree Leaves is still alive people! Spoke to him on Tuesday evening to discuss the upcoming BENL FIRE Meetup (Edition 5!). We are happy to announce more details of the next BENL FIRE Meetup – Leuven Edition. You in?

I hope that you are ready for another round of random internet dating with other FIRE enthusiasts. If you are, please mark your calendars for the weekend of February 24 and 25, 2018. We will be meeting up in the beautiful city of Leuven in Belgium.

This time around we are planning to make it into a weekend long event. As many of the Dutch (and other international visitors) will need to travel, the plan is to commence Saturday afternoon after lunch. We will conclude on Sunday afternoon, so there is sufficient time to travel home.

As per usual:

  • You are free to come and go as you please;
  • We will request the usual small fee to cover things like food, drinks and rental of the facilities/equipment. This usually boils down to around €10-15 per day (excluding breakfast/lunch/dinner!);
  • You are responsible for your own accommodation if you want to join for the full 2 days; and,
  • We strive to have the location(s) easily accessible by both car and public transport.

More details will be provided to all that register. Please take note, we are targeting a maximum of 40 people for this meetup on both Saturday 24 February and Sunday February 25.

Why should you come?

Because it is entertaining, interesting  and simply put: great fun! It’s liberating to interact with people that think and act like you do. Yes, there are other people that don’t think it is weird to bring your own snacks/drinks! Go figure 🙂
