    More than 16,000 visitors during the open day at the barracks

    Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016 14:19

    ORANJESTAD - The traditional open day at the Marine Barracks at Savaneta could count Monday at '16, 000 to 17,000 visitors. That let commander Jan in Hove know Amigoe this morning. He looks back on a successful day again.

    "The number of visitors has been fluctuating between 15,000 and 20,000, a huge number and we are happy with that." It was Monday an exciting day for the station staff, he says, because last year the open day was not in the barracks, but made the event is part of the nautical event Sail Aruba (1-2-3 May). Organizing the open day on site was already two years ago. This morning an evaluation of the event took place and the commander speaks again of a successful day.

    The gates of the barracks were open at 10:00, many visitors rushed to the boats to avoid long lines. For smaller visitors (under 1.65 meters) was a cruise with a Frisc not permitted for safety reasons and when shooting, children under 12 years were not allowed to participate. That did not spoil the fun, there was plenty to do and see. The obstacle to entering the Pelican, but also demonstrations by helicopter and simulating an arrest and assault. In the sports hall was crowded at the tent where you could do a night vision tour. The traditional fried rice and pea soup - both from our own kitchen - was eagerly eaten.


    Lottery

    Proceeds from the annual lottery sales is not yet known. Who has bought a ticket and wants to know if it has yielded a prize, please visit the Facebook page "Open house Marines Barracks. Prices are to pick up until May 17 at the barracks. In 2014, the open day attracted 18,000 visitors and provided the lottery with 35,000 florins, which went to charity.
