I have to get someone to cover my shift on the Sunday and make sure skiing is booked earlier in the month but should be good. Anyone researched hotels?

We're not going for my birthday really. It's my 50th year and this was on my bucket list. We discussed it over the weekend and loads were interested.

I guess people can do what they want. We'll arrange for the Pinball night on Saturday. Rotterdam is meant to be lovely so I'm happy to mooch around for good bars there on Friday :)
Agree Phil - bit of a short timeframe to take two citites in - I'm happy to stay at rotterdam. Do we know any recommended hotels ?

I'll speak to Gerard about hotels in the area.
Just stayed in the 'Innhotel Rotterdam centre' which was very nice and a water taxi away. I didnt see hotels much nearer by, the NY Restaurant opposite the museum has fantastic food (and drinks)

Since we'll presumably all by flying in to AMS it probably makes sense to spend Friday night there, then head to Rotterdam when we've sobered up Saturday?

Then Sat night in Rotterdam, and a free for all Sunday (some probably flying back, others staying on)

And we'll fit pinball in somewhere too :p
(Sat daytime, and Sunday too?)

John and Liz are just checking holidays. Think we'll get booked up on Monday evening. Looking at 3 nights. Won't get to Rotterdam until about 6pm on the Friday so Saturday will be mostly pinball then Sunday sightseeing.
