As of May 2004 we have happily appointed Winnie and Theus Van Doornik from
Woudenberg as our "Official Netherlands Fan Club".
At present they are currently building a web site for this purpose and hopefully it should be up
and running sometime in June.
Winnie and Theus have been great fans of Beggars Row and have travelled 800km to see us play
and now they are also very close friends.
When they approached Beggars Row about setting up and running the first Beggars Row Netherlands
Fan Club, we were only too happy for them to do so and it was all agreed in minutes.
Since then we have had many long conversations and email communications mainly about the fan club and
what were having for dinner tonight!.
There will be advantages for our Netherlands fan base in using the fan Club web site. The main one probably
the fact that none of us speak Dutch and though most times everyone we talk to in the Netherlands speak English there have
been some who have not understood our Scottish accents very easily.
Now that is not a problem with a Netherlands web site!
Winnie and Theus will also be able to contract bookings on behalf of Beggars Row in the Netherlands
and also in Belgium.This does not take anything away from our Netherlands agent Dave Tearney as they will be targeting
venues and companies not connected to Dave.Contact them at
Beggars Row merchandise will also be available to buy through the Fan club and we are
also looking at merchandise products that would also be only available through the Fan Club.
Up to date news about Beggars Row and how we are seen through the Fans eyes reports will also
appear and much more.
