Deposit paid ... and once I showed my wife the hotel website, she was fully on board. 

Only problem is, how do I break this news to my sister and friend Tim, my former co-pilots? Perhaps they can rent a Pagoda. :)

Just wish we didn't have to wait until we're all 16 months older!

Cheers,
Brian

Thanks Rick and James for your kind words and offer.  Would not miss this event!!!

James, be careful about what you offer (even in jest) as I have been known to dump my car on unsuspecting helpers at the end of a Euro-event!

Hi Tom,

Should you have no offers to take TLC of your prized position and deposit it to a port of your choice for the return trip to Verginia USA, im sure Garry Marks and yours truly would look after that for you. Both of us are flying in for the event and I will plan (like I do this year for the Mosel Tour) a 4 week stay in Europe.

This of course goes 2 ways, should you and your wife ever plan a vacation in the Niagara Falls area I would be delighted to let you have my Pagoda too :) Much has changed (except for the falls) at Niagara Falls also many more great wineries have opened around the Niagara on the Lake area.

Best,

Dieter

All those who just found out about this event: sorry but you should check the forum more often.  :'(

See this message: https://www.sl113.org/forums/index.php?topic=25819.msg186114#msg186114

The event is full and there is a waiting list. Those who are in have already paid the deposit. Rick007 may put you on the waiting list if it is not unreasonable to do so, but PM him directly.

Sorry if the full member mailing put your hopes up!

Peter
1970 280SL. Please do not mail or PM me questions on Pagoda's... I'm not likely to know the answer.  Please post on the forum instead!

Hello all ,

Well after long and careful hearing all parties,  and a lot of mail traffic we've managed 5 more places on our attendance list .
These will be filled up by our reserves ... and 35 will be the final number of cars we can manage on the event .

Don't forget we are talking cars so this means 70 people for hotel , dinners , lunches and stopovers on the tour.
What we mean to say is that we simply cannot handle any more cars , because of the danger it would go chaotic .... and that would serve nobody.

Off course we always have to disappoint some members who would really liked to attend ... and yes many loyal attendees have priority, so these events fill up quickly.
Still its more than a year away and much can happen in that year, so do place yourself on the reserve list .

For those who are on our list , we still need some Email addresses , shirt sizes etc etc ... So please check if you mailed us everything.
You will receive a confirmation for your payment.


Thank you for now and we will inform you about our progress  ...

Greetings from the 2018 Euro Event Team .

Dear Rick, all organizers,

I sent Rick a mail May 15 to put me on the list, apparently this was not the right procedure.
Now the list is full, can you put me on the reserve list and send me the necessary information?

Many thanks, kind regards, Peter

Will attend IF I can get a ride as a passenger.  I will be close by in Northern Italy during September.

This post is just to indicate that I am no longer looking for a passenger seat for the event.  I have been offered a car by a generous fellow member and have already paid my deposit to Rick. Looking forward to another great event. :)
