We are starting from Theater ICOON in Amersfoort. There are plenty of parkingspots for cars in front of the theater (non paid).

The weather forecast is 75% chance on 2 mm of rain (source:weeronline.nl), down from 80% last week.
While nothing serious, it will be wet. Keep this in mind:
– Bring an umbrella (the spotters will bring them along, I will arrange a little cart).
– Bring outdoor feetpaws.
– According to weeronline, there is a 70% chance on 0,6mm of rain (Source: weeronline.nl), and according to the Apple Weatherservice it stays dry. Lets hope the latter is right!
Food & Drinks
There will be sanwiches and drinks available on the house in the Icon.
I will bring bottles of water along for the spotters. If you can bring some, including straws. It is appriciated.
As of writing, there is room for 20 fursuiters, and I aim to have about 5 handlers
