Dear Gillissenvaarders. Hoogblokland, February 2020.
Also this year the board is organizing a fun event at whitesun. This spring event of the Gillissenvaarders, from Friday 29 to Sunday 31 May 2020, will be held in Hattem (near Zwolle).
We are guests in the IJsseldelta Marina marina. (www.ijsseldeltamarina.nl) For many, probably a well-known location on the Gelderse IJssel and entrance via the Apeldoorns Kanaal.
Friday evening we will start with a cozy (jetty) drink on the grounds (lawn) of the marina at the top of the jetty. This is just on the right when you walk ashore. If the weather conditions are not good, then the board will look for a different solution. Saturday morning we have reserved for a city walk of about one and a half hour through Hattem led by guides.
On Saturday afternoon we leave everyone free to do what they like. There is so much to do in Hattem and the like, that there is something for everyone. Such as the Anton Pieck Museum (www.antonpieckmuseum.nl), the Voerman Museum (www.voermanmuseumhattem.nl), the Dutch Bakery Museum, Molen de Fortuin, the Hippinkster competition and fair, etc.
We have reserved Saturday evening for a dinner in restaurant “Bij DE JONGENS”, Markt 9 in Hattem (www.bijdejongenshattem.nl). On Sunday morning we also have the final palaver on shore again at the entrance to the marina (start of the jetty) We jointly find a solution for coffee, e.g. by bringing some jugs of coffee yourself. A small snack with coffee will be provided.
We naturally hope for a large turnout and good weather. Kind regards, On behalf of the board of the Gillissenvaarders.
