Dear All,
Sadly now a happy memory of a fabulous trip.  Great to see so many photos.  We were so lucky to join you all, at the last minute but can't wait until the next event.
Again a very big thank you to the team.
John & Wendy

Hey, all.

This morning I added several more photos to my Flickr album on the Italy trip, photos that were on my phone, including a couple of panoramas.  Find the link below.

They include this photo of the two goofy Americans ...

Dear 2016 Euro Event Attendees ,

I'm happy to report you that we have stayed within budget en even have the staggering amount of € 1,44 left on the account .
I hope you all agree that I will drop this in charity deposit box ... somewhere I don't know yet.

All bills are paid in full , and we managed to pay back a substantial amount to the attendee that was stranded on the way over .
I did send him the shirts , and shield .  Still have 2 Shirts ( xxL )  and one rally shield for those who want it .
So its a wrap ... Will send out the balance sheet asap .

Finally I would like to thank everyone for attending and making our 2016 Event unforgettable and unique.
Will be a tough job to beat this one in 2018 .....

The 2016 Euro Event Team signing off ...

Rick, we have a saying that Charity begins at home  ;D
Thank you for all the organisation to you and your organising partners, it was all done to perfection, including the weather.
To be honest I'm having withdrawal symptoms and so looking forward to our meet in the not so distant future wherever it may be  8)

A huge thank you to all that turned up as well.

Excellent job all around, Rick. Other clubs I have belonged to have organized these kinds of events with the help of professional tour organizers, yet the pros haven't done half as good a job as your team did at such a reasonable price. Congrats and thanks again!

And by all means, let's try to arrange a smaller-scale event for the "off year" of 2017, like was done last year in the Netherlands with Martijn's help.

Happy Motoring!

Hi Jonny,

The car drove back perfect! So as yet I've only filled the oil and put the hardtop on for winter, ill have it looked at in more detail next year.
All the best  :)

I left Australia for the Europe Tour 2016 on 16 September and after a fantastic three days with a great group of people from all around the world, I headed back to Uk to pick up a cruise ship that was repositioning to Sydney Australia.  W

Well I finally arrived back home today after 47 days at sea, having left Southampton on 28 September.

Now for summer days and some Pagoda driving...............

"47 days at sea" !!! :o  That is almost as long as it took on a clipper.
Are you still "rolling" while walking?  ;D

Hello Peter ,

Yes the first talks are already taking place , destination unknown.
But we're open for suggestions ???  Iceland would be great yes I know    :)

Off course South Tirol Italy,  is tough to beat.  But we know there are several beautiful places we can visit.
Then again there could be other members who would like to organize an event ?  Preferable local members in a nice area we can visit ?

But make no mistake there will be a 2018 Euro Event.  For now we better look at the other side of the pond at this years PUB in Virginia .

Greetings ,
