Once the single rooms are full you will be given a double room with someone else. Always after agreement with you!  Refund follows afterwards. As we already announced the prices are much higher than last year.

At other times than above drinks, coffee and tea are for your own account.

Exhibition and paper

We also have an exhibition. It would be nice if, like last weekend, a lot of people get involved, so that others may enjoy what we all like to make. Which paper suppliers are coming is not quite clear at this moment.
