Just got an Email from my bro Casper van Kalmthout and he told me that the shit is going down soon in the Netherlands. Here his short intro, a letter from the organizer and at the bottom my best of Thun pics.

"Read the txt below! It is going to be the biggest kayak event in Dutch history :) a perfect opportunity to visit the Netherlands for once to go kayaking!!"
