 Hello Peter,
 Looks like you had wonderful weather and a great turnout of 35 Pagodas! My wife and I are looking forward to our visit to Enkirch this summer and traveling through this beautiful part of Germany again. You are very lucky to have such a magnificent place to drive your Pagoda(s)

Peter,
Congrats. The pictures show that the event was successful and joyful. A good start into the new hal-century of their lives :)

I think that the pictures are in chronological order and that the restaurant gathering and wine tasting took place at the end.  Otherwise the alignment on the hilly wouldn't be as perfect as shown on the top pictures :)

Also, since most cars are with tops on, I presume that the weather was a bit on the fresh side...

On Friday all the pagodas have come in Enkirch. On Saturday morning we drive at 9 am along the river and even over steep mountain roads to Cochem. Next to Treis for lunch. Then back to Enkirch, unfortunately in the rain. Before dinner we met in a wine cellar.
On Sunday after breakfast they all went home.
We had a lot of fun, even though the weather was not so good. At 06-09. June there is a second tour.
I do not know if anyone goes to Good Word.

Hi Peter

Your pictures looks very nice. I have been in the Mosel area a few times when I have raced at the Nürburgring. It is such a nice area and the wine is exellent. So it must be very nice to attend these tours.

Are you doing the tours for a club - or maybe just private?

I organize the trip alone, but participants are from the www.pagodentreff.de The chief Detlef Hahn is always there.  Many are friends of mine for years. One participant came from Denmark.

Peter, I did spot Detlef (6th from the left at the front).

As far as I know York Seifert will be at Goodwood, as will Achim. Haven't checked for any other participants from Germany.
