The Dutch Open 2021: 23 & 24 October Sun, 25 October 2020 15:51
The Memoir’44 Dutch Open 2021 is scheduled for February 27 & 28, 2021.
Normally we would now have opened registration and spoiled you with puzzles and clues as to what we were going to play.

Unfortunately it is all very uncertain what it will look like early next year. That is why we have decided the following: In the first week of 2021, we will decide if the Memoir'44 Dutch Open 2021 will take place in February. For the time being you can leave the date in your agenda.

If we can't play in February, we hope to be able to play later in 2021. As other events and tournaments will also be organized when that is possible, we will discuss with our neighboring countries what would be a good kalender fit for everybody.

For the people in the neighborhood: if the Memoir'44 Dutch Open does not take place, we hope to be able to organize a game day that weekend, if the measures in force at that time allow. It will then resemble what we organized last July 18th.

Hope to see you soon across a board, take care of yourself and the people around you.

Kind regards
The Memoir’44 Brigade Nederland

Thanks for the info!

Now we have something to look forward to. I do hope the tournament can take place and we all get the chance to meet each other at a dice-throw distance Wink

Good luck and good health to all!

Any thoughts of organizing it online in case covid is still around?

Hi Photios, thanks for the question.

No we will not be playing the Dutch Open in an online fashion.
We think that would be to different from the experience we usually give the players that visit the Dutch Open. So we will wait until "after COVID" or until the measures are thus a tournament can be played.

As expected the Memoir'44 Dutch Open 2021 will NOT take place in February. Sob Sad

We will consult with the organizers of the Belgium and French Open to see how we can put all three in the agenda at the end of the year.

We will keep you informed.


For the people in the neighborhood: if the Corona measures allow it, we do want to organize a Breakthrough day on Saturday 27 February (which will be like the DDay day that we organized last 18 July.

We will also keep you informed about this.

The Dutch Open unfortunately doesn't line up with my school holidays and I can't take days off work outside the school holidays... So I have never been able to make it before.

Fingers crossed this could happen in the second half of October, then I could finally attend one!

Hi Sam, As I said to Eleanor on Facebook. The Belgium Open is planned for 30-31 Oct. We will be before or after that (with I feel a minimum of a month in between.

But maybe the Belgium Open would work for you? Smile

Covid is still very much around and lots of countries, including the Netherlands, are in some form of Lockdown.

But it is time to look ahead. We have been conferring with the French the Belgians and our venue and we are planning for a Memoir'44 Dutch Open this year.

The date we picked is 23 & 24 October.
(Sadly the Belgium Open team have canceled the Belgium Open for this year, but this opened up this weekend for us.)

So block this date in your calendar

We, of course, have no clue what the Covid situation will be like in October. But we are going for it!
We will keep you all informed.

We promise to make it a memorable weekend. (When have we disappointed you? Wink )

Wilderspin fingercrossing is powerful mojo it seems. Smile
And carefully what you wish for, you might just get it. Wink

As always: we would be delighted to have you as our guests.

Yep, this is great news.

Let's hope the travel and covid situation gets better.

Looks likely international travel will be banned over the summer for us in the UK (with a niece about to arrive imminently in Denmark, this is disappointing on another level! Sad )

Perhaps after a summer of warm weather and vaccinations across Europe, by September/October I could see my new niece AND get to the Dutch Open... Would be a great way to kick off the end of major Covid restrictions!
