Frequently asked questions:
As a small-scale organization, we are forced to limit our events, so thats why we can’t do our tankrides for private groups, special requests of photographers,… (anymore) and we ask for your understanding and support for this. Building such a tank was a challenge as a group, but giving answers to a lot of requests of the public also! As soon as we can and without any tank problems, we will try to organize one tankevent per year. You can follow this up every year via this website or our facebookpage!
The tank can be viewed statically at the pondfarm by an early appointment (via the contactpage only), see also www.depondfarm.be where you can also view Stijn's WW1 collection.
