Ghent: Gent X mail sorting center

City/region: Ghent
Date: august 19 will be moved to november
Time: 13.00
Meetup place: Gent X: mail sorting center.

**moved to november 4
is canceled due to the strict COVID regulations within Bpost.
At the moment it is still impossible to organize a “normal” visit.

Meeting: around 12 o’clock at the station for people who come by train
12:45 at the mail sorting center in Wondelgem, Industrieweg 30.

1 pm we can eat something in the company restaurant of Bpost.

vol au vent met frietjes en slaatje 5 €
Steak met frietjes en slaatje 6.5€
catch of the day (fish) 6.5 €
dagsoep 0.65 €
diverse broodjes

Afterwards we start signing and stamping our cards.
We get (in between) a presentation and later a tour in the mail sorting center.
The activity of the center starts around 5pm when the first mailbags arrive.
The intention is that we also see our postcards processed in this way at the start of their journey around the world.
I think the end will be around 6pm.

Even if the waitinglist is allready containing quite some names… could I be added as well? I would be very interested to join the event and to visit the sorting center

Oh I would be happy to be on the waiting list!

We can start a new group for the people on the waitinglist? :slight_smile:
Also interested.

Sounds like an amazing meetup. Can i join the waiting list? :slight_smile:

I’m so delighted that the people on the waiting list can be added and we can form 2 groups now! Some more good news is that there are some extra places available again.

Hello, can I exchange your postcards? I have meetup postcards from Dongguan, Guangdong, China.

Hi Luk!

I would love to join the group in Gent!

Thank you! :slight_smile:

Dear Luk,

is the meeting still in preparation? At the moment it can only be found as a past meetup and is not in the list of coming meetups.

@EdithK maybe also something for you?

Sorry, i have to cancel this meeting. I have to work, so you can give my place to someone else

Hallo Luk,
Ik sta per ongeluk 2x op de lijst, kan je me van de wachtlijst schrappen? Merci
Heidi (Belgischwitloof)

Hallo Luk, even een vraagje. Gaat dit door? Zo ja, wij zijn effectief met 2 personen: Soraya en mezelf. (aangezien er maar 20 plaatsen per groep zijn).
