British Autojumble Waalwijk
Met Kari, Pa Hans en Ma Hetty voor onze Black Cab. Was gezellig en mooi te zien hoe enthousiast men (mn Pa) is om deze iconen in stand te houden.
A few EU visitors are not on the group-picture as they were walking over the Auto Jumble grounds.
After 2016, some visiting EU members wrote me they did not find the ‘old pleasant culture of being welcomed non-existing and coolish’ and decided to leave the Association. Others said they still did consider to leave. I have not taken any position on this but I can understand what they expressed.
The EU meetings were started out of mutual emotions, growing friendships and mutual respect. That’s hard to replace. Under normal, experienced and fair administrative policy all this would not have happened. So be it.
