A good idea from Claire:

Here is the separate thread concerning an alleged attack on our beloved Flanders Fields.

The culprits seems to be an unlikely alliance between the "British Allied Warriors" and the "Blokes Aw Glesgan 'n' Surroundings", better known as:

Twisted Evil Twisted Evil "the BAW/BAGS" Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Landing place of the all-out attack seems to be Brussels Airport, and the target of the Op is assumed to be the lovely town of Lier, where they are going to try and take a whole band hostage. And probably rape all the money and loot the women in the process.

Anyone on the mainland feeling rather chauvinistic is urged to come over to Lier on FEBRUARY 24th 2007, where your duties will be further explained.

More info on the website of the band, BTW Wink

Is this going to be an entirely Jocko Homo-erotic affair? It wasn't me...

Brussels airport you say... do you mean Charleroi? I saw that Ryanair fly there from Prestwick pretty cheap, but how to get from there to Lier? And where to stay...?

Brussels and Charleroi are two different airports. I mostly use Brussels as a reference, since a lot of flights arrive there.

But in Belgian terms, Brussels and Charleroi are not far from each other Wink

You can easily take the train from Brussels to Lier and it will cost you almost nothing. I sent James some prices, and I think it was 8 pounds for a Train ticket return.

Ther are three hotels in Lier. "Hof Van Aragon" (rather posh), "Florent" (rather new) and "Handelshof" (rather pish but near the station). To go to the gig proper, the longest walking distance from these three hotels will be at about 20-30 minutes I guess.

But some Belgian peeps are calling around as we speak to see if some people have spare rooms, beds, shacks and sheds to stow you people away. More info as I get it of course Wink

Your talking about a verry slow/drunk walk right? Razz I can cross Lier in 20min.

I have my own place to sleap in Lier but I'm afraid there are no spare rooms Confused

Seeing as I don't have anything on my schedule (anymore) that day, count me in by all means. But really, Lier? Are you sure you're doing these good people a favour by having them come to Lier? After all, Walter Grootaers lives there and bumping into him might scar them for life. Mr. Green Then again, a taste of the FGG medicine might just remedy that. Wink I can't offer any spare rooms, unfortunately, but I can help out with the transportation side of things. I've got three spare seats in my car when I drive to Lier anyway and Brussels National Airport is about 15 mins away from where I live. Charleroi (boastfully called Brussels South, even when it's located 60 kms away from the capital Twisted Evil) is a bit further away, but it's no prob at all to pick people up there either. Might save you some money that can be put to good use beveragewise. Just let me know the hows, wheres and whens and your HL Airport Cabbie will pick you up and drive you to the crime scene... Wink

Perhaps add a Friday night in Antwerp? Very Happy

It's easy enough to get to the whole of Belgium from both Charleroi and Zaventem by train, bus or whatever you feel like. Just get in touch with your favourite local HLer and she/he will be glad to help you out Mr. Green

Top man Raf!
I'd like to book a seat on the Rafmobile, I'll get back with time and a place when everything is booked. I'm thinking a two-three day sojourn in Flanders would be appropriate. Very Happy

That's very good! Very Happy I'll get everything in order to guide you guys around, perhaps a bit of tourism and all that? Laughing Cool

BTW! If your local airport does Eindhoven instead of Charleroi with Ryanair: Much cheaper, same distance!

Consider your seat reserved, Brother Blast Smile. Two more left, if anyone wants them. Adding a night in Antwerp, adding a night in Brussels, Ghent or Leuven, it's all possible. The latter's less than ten mins away from where I live and has the added value of having a market square with bars lined up next to each other all the way round (and a high school in the middle to compensate and teach the youngins early Mr. Green). You won't find that anywhere in the world. Drink one beer in every bar and yer pished for the rest of the weekend... Mr. Green

I'd opt for Antwerp-Lier-Ghent or the other way round, you'll have had the Best Belgian cities then Very Happy (every Belgian city has too many pubs to count Laughing)
