The celebration was organised in combination with "The Padvinders" from Sint-Job-in't Goor. For the first time we went to the north of the province Antwerp to attend a celebration, and we have to say, they know how to hae a good time. Standing, together with ambiance.
The E10 Hoeve in Brecht, where it all took place, exudes class. Good food in a beautiful setting.
It has been known for a long time that there is a band between "The Padvinders" and La Colombe Joyeuse. Roger Geysen, Chairman of the Padvinders also sits in the governing board of "La Colombe", hence the successful marriage. This celebration took place at the same time as the Olympiad in Poland, meaning that a few tenors were not present.
The place of honour European Cup Herman Van Rompuy was handed over by Senator Peter Van Rompuy, son of the chairman of the European council .
