 Every year , after a Bosman weekend , the mutual feeling is that it cannot be bettered. My feeling, as organiser of the program for the past 22 years is... THIS YEAR IS GOING TO BE AMAZING !

There will be surprises, magic moments  and wonderful experiences  - ( even if it is only your first mampoer tasting experience or roostekoeke and moerkoffie from the fire).
