It's well past midnight here in Arnhem and looking back, I must say it was a truly eventful day. From the last minute packing at our offices exactly 24 hours ago, and here I must say a great thank you to all the team, to our departure from Malta at 8am, and our 7 hours of flight time, train and taxi ... we finally made it!
Well, there were quite a number of those times along the way ...
Having never been here in the Netherlands, I must say that the location to host the OpenForce here especially in Arnhem was an excellent choice. The city is quiet, green, and relaxing. Ideal to escape from the bustle and meet up with other business professionals in a casual and informal manner
Informal...well here I am ...
... as are our 110kg of promotional material for the OpenForce!
Arriving at the Papendal Conference centre enforced my statement on the choice of hosting the OpenForce here. The Papendal is a fine blend of business attire, sports and style.
It's also idealically located about 10minutes' drive from Arnhem and lays quietly amongst lush vegetation and a fine golf course. It's quiet and relaxing - ideal to put you in the right mindset for Monday's events.

Business attire meets style and sports at the Papendal
Actually, since DotNetMushroom is a member of the European DotNetNuke Professionals, we'll be spending all Sunday with the other members - something which we're also really looking forward to.
Behind these doors the fury of the Nuke will be unleashed on Monday!
We're really looking forward toward meeting as many of you on our stand during the OpenForce, which as most of you know, marks the much anticipated launch of the DotNetMushroom RAD. These past 2 weeks, we have seen quite a significant interest in it, so we're really looking forward for Monday.
Balls on display at the Papendal?...well,we'll show ours on Monday!
