50th Anniversary Newsletter 1

50th Anniversary 2024

Newsletter 1, november 2023​​​​​​​

Dear Morris Minor Club friends, also outside The Netherlands,

We recently announced that we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of our Morris Minor Club Netherlands on September 6th, 7th and 8th 2024, at Camping Betuwestrand Recreatie in Beesd (Gld.)

Most of our activities will be on and around the centrally located sports field. Tents, caravans, Morris Minors and campers can be set up there. Our meeting tent will also be located on this field.

Please note: no dogs are allowed on the sports field and around the recreational lake!

There are camping pitches near the sports field where dogs are allowed, as well as in the rental caravans, family chalets and villa tents reserved for our club. There are several dog walking areas.


In general the weekend will look like this:

- Friday September 6th from 2 p.m.: arrival

   In the evening you can have a simple meal together (there will be a food truck on-site, serving chips etc.)

-Saturday September 7th: Historical run Beesd-Vianen-Gorinchem-Beesd. This is a historical run because the Vianen-Gorinchem was the first run when     our club was founded in 1974. On Saturday we are going to recreate this run as closely as possible.

   A BBQ buffet is planned in the evening.

-Sunday September 8th: After a special morning activity, we’ll say our goodbyes and most will return home.

  If you wish you can stay an extra night until Monday, September 9th. This is without extra cost for your accommodation.

In addition to our own members, we will also receive our Morris friends from surrounding countries.
