The Morris Weekend will be based at the Jan Visser Museum (a museum of farm implements from before mechanisation).
Outdoor camping in the museum grounds, indoor camping (men only) in one of the exhibition rooms. Toilets and showers will be provided.
All meals will be taken in the museum (except Saturday lunch on the tour).
This all follows the pattern of the Ring Meeting three years ago except that now there is certainty about indoor camping.
For those who prefer hotel accommodation, there is a list of suitable hotels on the right.
Helmond has a mainline station with half-hourly trains from The Hague, Rotterdam, Eindhoven and good connections to all other parts of the Netherlands. It is easily reached from Schiphol Airport and the port of Ijmuiden (sailings from Newcastle). There is an airport in Eindhoven with RyanAir flights from Stansted.

The cost of the Ring Meeting will be €75 per person.
Numbers are limited so early booking (or an indication of interest) is recommended.
