We'd like to invite you to this extraordinary edition of the Dutch EGP.
What makes it extraordinary?
You will feel like being at a resort.
It will feel like a short holiday.
Starting friday 15:00, you will immediately come to ease, knowing a good healthy dinner will be made for you around 18:30.

While waiting for dinner you can simply relax or walk in the serene surroundings.

After dinner, we ask a few of you to help cleaning up.
In the evening, we can all relax, chat, play games (Othello allowed) or walk in the surroundings.
After a nice evening it's time to go to bed in one of the clean and comfortable rooms.

The next morning (08:00-09:00) a fine breakfast is awaiting you.
The tournament starts at 10:00.

During the tournament drinks and a few snacks are free.
Around noon you'll be offered a complete lunch.
After the 7th round and a short break, another great dinner will be served.

After the Saturday dinner, we have the same routine as on friday.
Sunday morning, breakfast will be ready for you to make sure you have a good start for the 2nd tournament day.
After the 11th round, we'll have lunch.
And after the (semi)finals, another good dinner.
Sunday evening is for relaxing, analysing games ;), playing some more games or whatever you feel like doing.
On monday morning, we finish the weekend with a nice breakfast.

All together, this is going to be an EGP to remember!

The venue is located about five kilometers from train station Weesp.
There are direct trains from Schiphol airport and Amsterdam Central Station to Weesp trainstation.
From Schiphol use the 'sprinter' to Almere Centrum (about 22 mins).
