This is the final mail before the tournament begins. We are all set, prepared and excited to have all of you with us. The support teams are instructed, the hall is prepared and we now need to convey the latest information to you, our participants. So- here are the most important things. Read carefully, some things are really important!

Weigh-in for Saturday

Most of the weigh-in for Saturday will happen on Friday afternoon, during Divisioning. The remainder of the judoka will be weighed on Saturday morning, in which case we ask you to be on time.

Closure Tolweg (access to Assumburg Castle)

The road right in front of the castle is closed for maintenance. Please pay special attention to the signage (yellow signs) which will guide you to road plates, giving access to the Castle.

Missing information

We do not have flight and hotel details for everybody yet. If you fly in, then please mail your flight details (in- and outbound) to logistics@specialneedsjudo.nl otherwise you will not be picked up from the airport.

Pick-up from the airport

The old red/white meeting point has been removed. Therefore, when you exit the baggage claim area, go to the Burger King at Schiphol Plaza and wait until you get picked up. You will then be brought outside and our shuttle service will pick you up. DO NOT go wandering about on the airport, keep your team together!

And finally..

We are delighted to have you in Beverwijk. We hope you have a great time, and we will do our best to make it so.

See you in Beverwijk!
