  1. Dear BSBG people,

    In the Big Straw Bale Gathering program (running order) I see “5 min. – 5 slides”. If possible I like show my statement and question on “fire-safety & straw-constructions” and my 5 slides of the fire at Kampen – NL early this year. If there is some room left for my 5 minutes.

    Hope to hear from you.

    • Hi Wouter! The 5 for 5 will be available to anyone who is attending the event, bring a USB key with your slides and it’ll be first come first serve.
