From now on the monthly kite meeting of NCB is held in the Domaine Solvay – Chateau de La Hulpe, in B-1310 La Hulpe and this on the last Sunday of every month. (see calender).
The kite field is on the lawns behind the Chateau. It is an ideal kite field if the wind is South to South West as the site is surrounded by woods. You’ll need your Welly Boots after some days of rain, certainly during autumn or winter. The grass seems to act a sponge then…
Attention: Power kites are not welcome, for this is a popular walking area. For that reason as well, cars are not allowed in the Park. To make sure you’ll be able to meet NCB-members, take contact with Christian Tuyns
