LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Default Pre-Spring fun in Belgium!

February 25-26, 2017
Comic Con Brussels
https://comicconbrussels.com/en/homepage-en/
Location: https://comicconbrussels.com/en/when-and-where/
(These are the English pages; French and Dutch pages are available.)

That's right - Dirk is going to be in Brussels ONE MONTH FROM NOW!!!

Frankly, this came as a surprise to me, since he's already scheduled for Bruhl in April, but this is, of course, Comic Con Brussels, in Belgium, which is a familiar place to Dirk...

So don't keep us in the dark - are you going? Will you get pictures?

Great news. It would have been too good to be true ...twice in one year.But ... I can't go then, because I'm not home
I'll have to be patient and wait until April.

Me too. But there was still a guest listed with a question mark, so perhaps he is the surprise guest or something.

Some sites are updated faster than others. The Stuttgart con had his picture up before the ink was dry...

Germans are known for being punctual. That may explain it.

Same here! Several forum members will be going to the April convention in Bruhl, Zilfstar. Maybe you should warn Dirk when you meet him.

Why would you suggest that? Does he not like surprises?


Kein Blitzkrieg, huh?






Ok........... if you insist.

Zilstar, I think you have support if you should need or want it. Lol

Maybe Flyngirl's entourage idea will work out. Is this a John question? I noticed when requesting celebrity guests on some of the websites, that they also have a volunteer tab. How cool would that be?

Nah I meant it as a joke LOL and I think they did too. Would be damn fun though HAHA...

But... if John can pass the message along? I however do not think Dirk will remember me although it will be the 8th time HAHA.... (and he might remember the fan who came to London on his invitition to watch Dick Wittington and joined him back stage w my family... LOL)
