BeNeLux SCD Weekend - new date: 7-9 May 2021
Dear BENELUX participants
Further to my message of 25 March, I can inform you that the confinement in Belgium has been extended to 19 April and is likely to be prolonged by at least another two weeks after that.
Looking at the situation in most European countries, we feel the only choice is to postpone the BENELUX weekend to next year. This is of course subject to everything being back to normal, the hotel is open and we are all free to travel.
We very much hope it will be possible to welcome you to Retie in May 2021 and we will confirm the event will go ahead as soon as possible.
Registered participants should by now have received an email regarding their registration. Should this not be the case, please get in touch by email (scdbrussels at yahoo.com).
I hope it won't be too long before we can all be back on the dance floor. In the meantime, stay safe.
Anne Scobie for Brussels Dance Scottish, Luxembourg Scottish Country Dance Group, The Thistle Club Eindhoven and the other BE-NE-LUX supporting groups
