So you'd be talking about a 5-day long weekend with two days of that for Borefts fest and the normal three days of gathering around it? One problem I could see with that is that some of the active Dutch RB members who could be involved in organising RBESG are also tied up with helping out at and/or doing the preparations for Borefts so it could be difficult for them to fit everything in.


The ticking / drinking on a Borefts combo will be legendary - Borefts almost killed me on its ozn last year.

I would be against combining as I just can't drink for 5 days straight anymore.



Also I can see Borefts being a distraction from the gathering itself. We already do tastings before or after Borefts so it's not like we are short of beers.



I'd like to focus on different areas of NL/BE that I haven't been to or haven't travelled to in some time.

Same with me, please don't combine it with Borefts. And as I see there are plans to combine RBESG with beer festival, at least small beer festival.

The small Tilburg festival is nice and won't be visited a lot by tourists. It suits a gathering as proposed imo. Combining it with Borefts would keep me away from it, BBF is enough on its own. And too many guys are working at the festival AND the days before the festival starts!

Forget Borefts for the RBESG.(for reasons already given, for you the festival lasts only two days, but the volunteers are working thursday untill sunday.)

Lets just go bonkers with the current plan!! :18:
