OUR Feedback:

Positive :

  • happy people for all the positive points cited above ;
  • good ratio channel space/views/tulip fields/smell ;
  • news faces and more people for 2010 ;

Negative :

  • negative overdrawn budget this year again. This is this time partially due to too much non-racing people having eaten without having paid. Our mistake: we should have been more clear on the fact that partners/friends/family expected should participate to the barbecue costs… ;
  • 12 competitors stucked in France because of the air traffic control (volcano) ;
  • still need of sponsors to provide a good quality (prizes, t-shirts,…) ;
  • the excel registration sheet was not properly formated and it took time to determine the winners and give the prize ceremony ;
