Please add my name as well.

Thank you!

Dieter

PS. I do need a ride from a single driver if that is not possible I'll share the cost of a rental car or Pagoda (like I understand was possible last year). I will attend the Mosel Tour this coming July and I am fortunate to get a lift with Heinrich and his wife Ruth (they are traveling with two Pagodas His and Hers). I will be happy to return the favour should someone like to be a passenger in my car to the world renown Niagara Falls or our near by Niagara on the Lake Wineries.

Edit  Added PS. And corrected typo I hate this auto correct ;)

Hi Rick,
Not sure if my previous message counts as request, but just in case this is to reconfirm our participation (2 people 1 car)

sounds like an excellent location, full of top class motoring places

BTW: do you have a more precise idea about the dates?

Hello Euro Event enthusiasts,

Yes we are working on the attendants list ... and we will handle every request seriously.
And it is a joy to see that almost all former attendees from 2014 and 2016  have signed in again .... we must have done something good.
And although the 2016 event will be hard to beat , that doesn't mean that we will not give it our best.

Our local member Pascal has found us a great Hotel which we think will tic all the boxes for the event . We will start the attendants list by sending out the invitations and deposit request starting today .... Afterward you will receive the usual flyer with more details .  Don't be alarmed when you have not received our personal message it may take a while ( 5 message limit ) 

But .... And I must quote our former President and organizer ,Co-organizer Mr. Peter van Es in this , because the same rules from 2016 imply for 2018 as well .


( Quote )       
If there is a limit on cars (which there may well be as it is tougher to organize for too many cars) then, hard though it may be:

•First come first serve, but...
•Full members overtake Associate members...
•Known attendees have an advantage over unknown people...
•Those who are anonymous... figure it out!

Additionally, as the program firms up, at some point commitment will be asked for. Prompt payers take precedence.

I'm posting this message as a 'Public Service Announcement', not as an official statement. The organizing committee and practical considerations (number of people that can be handled, hotel capacity, organizational ability) all add up to make a popular event like this very, very difficult to organize. Things may change, your mileage may vary...
( Unquote ) 


I'm sorry Peter but I couldn't have said it better then you in 2016 .... 

At the Moment we are sending out personal messages with payment requests for the deposit , so please respond to that mail. 

More info to follow ...

Greetings from the 2018 Euro Event Team
