5 November ’20 – On-line with Wine

Dear Members,

We are going on-line with wine!
Happy to announce that our Annual General Meeting (“AGM”)will take place via an online platform on the 5th of November.

In order to prevent ourselves from having only the board members present, we would like to reward (read: bribe) those who are loyal to LINK and participate to our AGM. In case you register for the GAM and provide your home address** when doing so, you will receive a box containing two bottles of wine carefully selected by ‘Wijn aan de Kade’. This will enable participants to our AGM, to enjoy quality products while the LINK board does the needful to round up the year.

Please register by sending an email to info@link-maritime.com and don’t forget to clearly state your home address**.

Deadline: 29th of October
Spots/boxes available: 40 (first come – first served)

Stay fresh & stay healthy!

All the best,

The board of LINK

We look back on a good start of the year with many familiar faces but also new faces.

We kickoff in November with an event at Melief Bender, 25-35 attendees.  And in the start of 2020 a great whiskey event was a fact at Cat Jazz Cigar Bar, 36 attendees followed up with the RotterTram also a successful event of 41 attendees.

Followed in August with an event at Fontein despite the holidays still 20 attendees. In September we organized an event at Weena 20 attendees.

Unfortunately COVID-19 kicked in again. The general meeting in Oktober has been cancelled last minute. And now we are here, On-line with the general meeting!
