Panomeeting: Holland - Bourtange

On Saturday May the 21st, members of the Panoramio Community decided to meet in Bourtagne - Holland to spend a day together. It all went very well and this is how they have described the event in their own words:

In the week prior to our meeting there was a lot of rain and the forecast wasn’t that good initially. But when the week progressed the weather forecast improved, promises as the day of the meeting would be the best day of the week where made.
So Saturday morning I woke up and opened the curtains and there it was… a clear blue sky.
After leaving for Bourtange together with Bert Lanting and Mika Huising we met our fellow organiser Tjeert Mensinga at about 10 o’clock. Gradually the participants arrived from all over Holland and 1 from Belgium. After all 23 participants had arrived, we all went for coffee and cake. During this everyone was chatting with each other, renewing contacts and learning to know the first time participants in real life. In the meantime Tjeert explained to the group on how the day was planned and invited everyone for a group picture. After finishing the group picture, everyone took of in groups to explore Bourtange. During the day we ran into each other and chatted on about Panoramio, photography or just everyday business. Having had talks about subjects, personal and photographic stuff, the barbecue was set on fire. While enjoying a good meal with plenty of refreshing drinks a great, warm, day came to an end.

As the organising team there’s nothing left, then a very satisfied feeling over a great day, with great and entertaining company.
We’d like to thank every participant for the contribution to make this day as successful as it was. We would also like to thank Panoramio for creating a platform for sharing pictures, thoughts and bringing people together
