Print-Station.nl will be at the Open Dutch and they will be manufacturing and selling the official Open Dutch tournament shirt. If you want one, make sure to pre-order it here. You can also follow them on facebook of course. They will have this cool Open Dutch shirt, but of course will also offer other designs and the opportunity to customize shirts.
Top-Ten just informed us that they will have vouchers for 10/20/30% discount at their booth at the Open-Dutch for Bronze/Silver/Gold winners. The voucher can also be used for online orders on budoland.de , but note that depending on where you are located there may be a shipping cost involved. We recommend those who want to use the voucher to try to use it at the tournament. That way you get the most out of it.
Thanks Top Ten for providing these!
As some people already asked, yes we will have the option again to do the weigh-in (or height on Saturday evening at the venue. Note that this will only be possible between 16:00 and 19:00. With ~600 participants we are expecting it to be super busy on Sunday morning, so anyone who is capable of doing the weigh-in or height check on Saturday evening, please stop by and avoid the rush on Sunday morning! (Sports venue Fitland Helmond, Scheepsboulevard 2 5705 KZ Helmond, Netherlands)

Last year a couple of folks mentioned that they would liked to have seen a bigger change in medal design. The 2017 design was very similar to the 2016 design indeed. So for the 2018 edition of the Open Dutch we had a complete new design developed, which in our opinion looks great. We hope you all agree with us, and we are looking forward to seeing you in less than a month in Helmond! We are ready, are you ready to win one of these new shiny medals? (See below the 2016, 2017 and 2018 medals!)
