Euro Event 2018
« on: March 30, 2017, 08:44:01 »
Dear Members ,

Just to let you know the wheels are in motion for organizing a 2018 Euro Event .
Next couple of weeks we will start with information on :Introduction of the team ,Location , timespan , and opening our attendee list .

Many last years attendees asked us what we planned for 2018 ? Well we wanted to wait for other initiatives and plans, but since nobody stepped up with a plan for 2018, we decided to grab the wheel again.

The 2016 Event will be hard to beat but I guarantee we will try our best.

More info will follow .....

Greetings
The 2018 Euro Event Team

You, sir, are a star!!! Thanks for stepping up again. Perhaps the bar you set is so high, others are intimidated...

Thank you James.... But don't forget its always a team effort.  And we would never want to break other initiatives !
Better still we would welcome them. However organizing an event like this requires a long prep time , so that's why these first steps.

By the way James ... you did 2014 ....alone.

Great news Rick, planning is more then half the job I've always used that in my business life and it never let me down. Nice to see you folks are staring early. I just might ship my Blue Tornado back to Germany for her 50s birthday attend your Euro Event and then enjoy some of the roads I've never seen for a few years with my brother that lives in Germany.

Dieter

PS. I am attending the Moseltour this coming July and will discuss all what may be required to get my Pagoda certified for roads in Western Europe.

The surprise is that one of the participants from the 2010 EE event (Alsace) is playing a major role in the planning, and Paul, Rick and I are supporting the effort.

It's gonna be Yuuuge, Great and wonderful. I'm sure. More will be revealed soon.

So block the period from middle of September to early October (long weekends, starting Wednesdays) in your diary.

Peter,
your message has plenty of suggestive hints...
In my life I have tried to do planning (probably more in the professional than private life), but rarely it exceeded 12 months. Here is a 18 month planning, but the event is definitely worth blocking the diary ahead of time.
Looks like work and family matters have to be planned around it :)

Dieter,
You are trying to over-smart the surprise... wouldn't work, trust me... ;D
The patience seems to be of the essence..

Just to make it more fun, let me add: Berlin, Milan, Zurich, Barcelona and why not Warsaw???

Hey Stan,

Perhaps you can plan an event prior or after the Euro Event in Poland love to come and visit with your group it would make the trip across the pond even more exciting :)

I know you folks are great hosts, for many years when I lived in Montreal my Polish brother in law put on a great Easter Breakfast that we never missed :)

Hello Dieter!
I know that looking from the North American perspective, Europe is like a medium size country ;D So why not one event here and another one there? ;D

But seriously, I doubt that we would even attempt to do something meaningful sticking to The Event. This takes time and full commitment, etc etc.

However, if you happen to visit Warsaw, a solid Polish breakfast/lunch Easter style will be waiting for you. And weather permitting, a small gathering and ride with a few Pagodas can be always arranged on the spot.
