    We'll see...anyhow, the website is showing 154 dealers, so there should be quite a lot to look at.

    I will be there saturday early lets say between 09.30 and 12.00
    Maybe we will see each other but as we all have no idea of who is who we wont meet/ realise who we see.
    Maybe we should wear a batch with logo and have a little chat.

    Been there:

    [SIZE=medium]Directly after the entrancegate some the dealers put up their stuff. Some German prick drove with his Mercedes jeep though the gate but miscalculated the space between the front right wheel and de dealersstand. So i heard a “CRACK !!” He drove his car over some kind of baccalite fieldphone. Both dealer and driver were not happy. I saw driver pull his wallet to pay cash for the damage haha.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]A dealer found a German helmet dump, some kind of massgrave for helmets somewehre in the Ardennes. He dug up more than 200 pieces. Most of them were of course just a piece of rust, with holes. You could get one for 30,- euro. The better helmets , rusty but in fair condition were about 70 euro.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=medium]I saw a dealer who had an MG42 dug up, totally rusty. Some guys wer dsicussing with him about the found and de permits you need to have for this gun and how it should be de-militarised , even being it totally useless as a gun in this condition. An MP40 in good condition was 1700,- euro's. An interesting day. Oh, and i did not see any of you guys :salute: [/SIZE]

    I have a decent selection of pics from La Gleize, but since changing to a new PC with Windows 8, I'm having some real grief trying to transfer pics onto the forum..... :mad:

    This is a painful way of adding photos, but my usual Photobucket link just won't work...
