Hello,
I have seen several pictures from last years Dutch Cube Day, but I am having trouble finding any information about the event for 2014.

I would love an excuse to go back to Holland, as well as a chance to rub elbows with some of the puzzle greats.

If anyone has any information about the upcoming event, I would be grateful if you could share.

Thanks kindly.

I don't think a date has been set yet. It's usually in the 2nd half of October. I suggest you PM Geert, he always announces DCD here.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Thank you for the help,
I will send Geert a message to try and find out more.

I am hoping to find out with time to arrange a trip from Canada, as well as book time off work.

It would be great to meet you both as well.
:)

I'm pretty sure that I'll be there!

I also looking forward to know when and where will it be.

Hope the same place as last year. It was really nice!
We where stay at a cheep, and nice hotel at Rotterdam, and go to the venue by car. (It was only a half an hour trip).

Hello,
At this moment, a final date for the Dutch Cube Day 2014 has not yet been determined.

As soon as the date is known it will be mentioned here.

It has been confirmed by Joop van der Vaart that the Dutch Cube Day (DCD) will this year be held on 25 and 26 October.
The location is the same as in 2013 (Voorburg).

2 days?
Or the first will be only the Dutch Open, and the second day will be both Dutch Open and Dutch Cube Day like last year?

As in the previous years, the main event is on Sunday.
The speedcubing (Dutch Open) will already start on Saturday and will be continued on Sunday.
Furthermore, on Sunday there will be the exchange market and some lectures.

Hmmm just looked up flights - ryanair would be €100 return to Ireland but they only fly to Eindhoven which would be another €40 for return train tickets - still very tempted though! I really need to go to one of these meetings!

This is great news for several reasons. In order of preference-

1. The clocks change that day so the early morning start is less early.
2. Ferries from the UK should be back to normal after dry docking a few days earlier.
3. Location is great since they have the speedcubing in the same room as the DCD, unlike some other venues where you have to keep moving from one room to another if you are interested in both.

Looking forward to seeing many of you there and I have a very special new puzzle to reveal at the event.
