Title: Euro Event 2020
Post by: Rick007 on September 23, 2019, 12:20:58

Pagoda Euro Event 2020

Hello all ,

It has been a while since we posted anything, but since other initiatives bounced for whatever reasons, we decided it's high time we would take charge again. And because its 10 years ago since we had the first Euro Event its even a sort of   anniversary. 
So we formed an international team again with some familiar faces (for those who were with us on former events)

Since we are late and only have one year, we will inform you asap.
I cannot reveal to much at this point, in regards to where and when, but keep the last weekend of September 2020 free.

The list to sign up is open, but we will be back with more info as soon as possible.

The 2020 Euro Event team

Peter , Paul , Johannes , Rick

I was chatting about "this" to a new owner yesterday
He bought a 250 on Saturday and already loves it and fancies a European roadtrip  ;D
Assuming I can get a visa for Europe at that point, I'm in.

Thanks for the heads up Rick, looking forward to attend again. Please count me in.

Rolf-Dieter Solga (less my  Blue Tornado) :-)

Rented car (Pagoda has to stay in Canada), I would be looking for a free passenger seat if one is available, it goes without saying that I would share petrol costs during any tours. Or even from home base of a Pagoda owner to the event and back). I’ve done this now twice, one time during a Mosel Tour and a second time last year during the 2018 France Event.

I’m leaving on September 26 for PagodaFest along America’s Mother Route 66 in my DD... can’t wait to see everyone.

Cheers,

Dieter

If not too late I like to share the passenger seat with you. It goes without saying i’ll Share the petrol  ost with you!

I  can meet you in your home town or anywhere in Holland the. make the round trip with you.

Dieter, sorry, but that sentence was somewhat tongue-in-cheek. I have tried to get my wife to go with me the past three European events, but because we have kids and no family support here, it has always been impossible. But I always have my "backups" who want to go with me ... my dear friend Tim from the states, who went to Goodwood with me in 2015, and my sister Cathy, who went to Italy with me in 2016. Last year, my wife Rene was planning to go to France, but we couldn't swing it, nor could Tim or Cathy.  If I should reach that stage again, I'll certainly let you know. But don't count on it. :)

Na, Christian...,
It won't. Not too far definitely. ;)
A mere 1'300 kms, not more.
You can do that in 13 - 15 hrs, depending how fast you're going.
Two tank stops, that's it. If you drive carefully, one tank-stop.
Your Pagoda can stand that - for sure.
So, you should be doing so too. ;)


Cheers,
Achim

Achim, even JJD and Karin and I might join in in the trip down in 2020.  Would be a great fun convoy, perhaps sort of getting together in the Eiffel somewhere where the Brits can catch up with us if they can..... and yes, the direction is SOUTH from where we are...
But I can't tell you yet where to stop...

Update :

Wow what a response , and we thought that the Euro Event wasn't alive anymore.
Thanks for the great enthusiasm, the more reason for us to proceed and try to make it a great event again .

But there are some rules , we need to share with you all.
We received many entries via this topic and PM , meaning we are already filled up.

First off all ; … We have set the maximum number of attendees at 30 teams ( 60 persons )
Why ?  Well, the hotel in the area we want to go must be able to accommodate us. 
And because more is not that easy to handle, for instance on winding roads and lunch stops.
More teams ( people ) will serve no one and will not make it a better Event. 

Thats why ; Open for full members only , and first com first serve ..
But long time and loyal attendees have priority, as do members who come with a Pagoda, instead of vistors.
We do want it to be a Pagoda Event and not a rental car-drive ( rentals only in case of accidents, many of us know why  :) )

Besides that we are not professional car-holiday organizers, this is a volunteer initiative with no
commercial intentions of any kind. 

Thats why we have decided to open a reserve list … We know from experience that the closer we get to the date of the event we always invited teams from the reserve list , so please keep on signing in.

The members who signed up will get a PM with an invitation, and a request to pay the deposit, as we did previous years. The payment of this deposit is the only way to guarantee your place !


We will get back with more info as soon as possible.

greetings

The 2020 Euro Event team

Wel Achim i don't know what kind of Hybrid Pagoda you drive but mine certainly needs more than 2 tank stops on 1300 km  :)

Dear Rick,
Well, in contrast to me and the other 230 folks with only a 65 liters gas tank,
yours has got 82 litres filling volume.
Given your carefull and considerate touring, a consumption of about 11 litres/100 km this makes 77 litres per 700 kms.
Two fills will carry you at least 1300 (- 1400 kms)  ;) ;D  ;D
Not so with us 230 folks...; we need to fill up more often. ??? ::)

Looking very happily very much forward to further news on the Event.

Best,
Achim

Post by: Peter van Es on September 25, 2019, 14:26:13
Given your carefull and considerate touring,

Achim, you ARE talking about the same Rick I know?  ;D ;D ;D
He typically drives like me. During rallies, I use ~13.5 liters/100 km. On the trip down to France (more leisurely) I still used ~12.5 liters/100km, max 8km/liter.

By the way, I've never ever been able to fill up more than 68.5 liters. Either I'm scared to go empty, or my fuel gage is non-linear, or I have a (big) dent in my tank...

Pagoda Euro Event 2020

Dear Members and wannabe attendees ,

We are pleased to announce that we have a destination ; 

Bavaria in the south of Germany

Peter already gave us a taste but we think we have found, and confirmed, the place for our event.
Bavaria is right up our alley, and it tics all the boxes. 
If we think Bavaria we say…. beer, folklore, tradition, leather hoses etc etc .

When do we go  : Arrival the 25th, and departure the 28th of september 2020
So a bit different then earlier events, we arrive on Friday and leave on Monday.

We will contact the signed up attendees with a personal mail, which wil give you the details
and where to pay your deposit . 

We are very happy with what we accomplished on such a very short notice, and hope you all will enjoy it as you did on previous events. For the comming year we will have the task of finding nice stops and landmarks to vist . We might even have a tour in which we pass the German Austrian border , so winding roads and great driving is included. But we will not forget the special

And off course thanks to our loyal attendees for their great and enthusiastic response .

We will try to expand our Event with a few more places but at the moment we have no guarantee for that, so we do have to stay at 30 teams for now . So signing up is still a good idea if you want to join .

More info will follow …

Octoberfest! Coincidence? I think not.

The dates for Oktoberfest 2020: Saturday, September 19th – Sunday, October 4th.
