MEETUP PLACE: restaurant “De Houtloods” in Leerdam
DATE: Tuesday 18th April 2023
The address of “De Houtloods” is Sundsvall 2, 4141 MP Leerdam
Hello everybody, on Tuesday 18th April 2023 I am hosting a meeting in the small city of Leerdam, known for its glass industry and glassblowing.
The river Linge runs through Leerdam and April means blossom time. So if you have any chance I recommend staying in our region for a few days and walk or cycle along the Linge. (Please check: Lingeroute - Welkom in de Betuwe).
Next to the restaurant you can find the glassblowers’ centre (same building) where you can see the glassworkers at work (for tickets, check https://www.nationaalglasmuseum.nl/ ). The Glass Museum is about a 25 minute walk from there.
You can find the design of the meetup card below. For more cards of Leerdam you can visit the tourist centre (VVV) (Bezoek Leerdam, dé Glasstad van Nederland! | Tussen Lek & Linge , this site also offers information regarding parking facilities in Leerdam), the local Primera or Boek & Co. The local “Wereldwinkel” has some nice other cards too.
If you travel by train or bus to Leerdam Station, then it takes you about 7-8 minutes to walk from the station to the restaurant.
In March the restaurant will provide a new menu for groups. I will therefore contact all of the participants about their wishes for lunch a few weeks before the meeting. If you like to see what their current (winter) menu for groups is like, please check their site. ( De Houtloods Leerdam (dehoutloods-leerdam.nl) )
I would really appreciate it if you arrive at the meeting on time. That way we will be able to have lunch together as a group and afterwards continue writing the meetup cards and meetup books. (We can stay in the Houtloods until 17.00 max).
Fortunately, we will each be able to pay for our lunch separately.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I am looking forward to seeing you in Leerdam next spring.

Wilma of Leukepost has helped me with the design of the meetup card (shown below). Thank you so much Wilma! The cards cost € 0.55 each.
update 1st March 2023: I have sent details regarding the payment for the meetup cards to all participants, I kindly request you to pay them before 13th March 2023. That way I can order the cards in time.
