Euro Event 2016
« on: May 28, 2015, 07:23:16 »
Dear members ,

After our successful Euro Event 2014 in the UK , organized by James , everybody is keen the know what the plans are for 2016.
Well since we gently persuaded James to organize the UK event , after our event in 2012 , we felt the need to try and get things going again.

During our stay in Goodwood I got talking with Johannes and Peter , 2 of our Northern Italian Members.  I knew them since Willingen and during my journey down south to Italy we visited them in Merano , where they live.  Merano is at the foot of the Alps on the south side. This part of Europe is one of the most beautiful places there is , mountains , history , good food , ambiance , and beautiful winding roads through the mountains. Merano itself is packed with history and the former health spa of queen Sissi ( you know the Movie ) . We got very impressed with the surroundings and really enjoyed our stay there .

So a plan emerged !  Johannes owns a great Hotel and Peter a Restaurant in the Botanical Gardens . I've been talking with them and they are willing to arrange things on there side. I've asked Paul , my friend and co-organizer in 2012 to help so we can coordinate and act as organizers.

So what do we have so far : 

* we are trying to organize a Euro Event in Italy ( southern Tirol )  in 2016
* 23 September to 26 September 2016
* We initially have 20 Rooms available ( this means 20 Cars ! but we try to get some more )
* Budget : we try not to exceed the 2014 budget
* Paul will investigate a possibility to get our cars on a train or truck and we could fly over ...

 

We would like to know what you all think about our plans .... so please reflect and we will keep you posted !

And remember ....  First come first go !

Greetings ,

Rick

YES, interested!

I'll have to check the cost of the truck transportation from Finland, though.

After the traffic queues last year, you never know ;D Which reminds me, I must book a hotel for this year's Revival :D

My brother now has a w123 coupe and has already said he'd be up for a waft across the alps if there's room!

Peter:
Is this still the same event we discussed in Willigen in 2013.
I thought the Italian owner of the hotel was going to open it for us whomever attended, not just 20 rooms.
Or is this a different place?

Dear Rick,

Perfect Idea. :D
Yes, I remember us talking and (pre-)planning this event with Johannes and Peter already on the parkning lawns at Goodwood last year. ;D

Definitely count me in!
Sadly I cannot make the same tour this year together with the German Pagodentreff folks but I definitely want to be in next year.

So, please count me in.
Depending on Aslam's (kampala) plan; we are attending with 2 - 3 people and 1 - 2 cars. If 2 cars, then I have to go with my 114.

Looking very much forward to 23 - 26 Sep 2016.

Tom, this is the same event. The rooms limit is the hotel owners prerogative. So places are limited, as Rick indicated.

So Peter and whomever,
With 20 rooms, that means 20 members plus wifes and friends.
Does anyone know if 50 or so members sign up , will they have to find other hotels or Gausthouses, or are these excess members on their own.

Like we stated its a first proposal...and we're trying to raise some interest .
We still have to verify the amount of rooms available and the interest there is for these plans ... Since the location is not as central as before we started with a proposal for 20 rooms .  It may be that not all could reside in the same hotel . Again this is a first plan and we're only checking for interest in this stage .   But since we do have a lot of interest already I will contact our friends in Sud Tirol and will discuss this.

We will keep you all posted ... But keep signing in for now....

Greetings the 2016 event team
