I can't recall all names and none of the VFS nicknames, but I see from top left:

Marvin Nolte, Linda Foote, [can't remember], Ad Swier, Herman Schibli, Paul Slaney, Richard Ross, myself, yourself
Tomas Modic, [can't remember], [Colin can't remember surname], Bart van der Schrieck, Bas Verschoor

The unknowns might be known to you since they were both members of the NVG club where we met them.
You can see them here too.

I'll see if I can dig out the originals and scan them in a better quality.
