Just cos I said 280s are plastic fantastic’s and I like chrome.

Maybe we should have a section for Chrome heads ;D ;D ;D

Oh, and by the way, I believe it is a 230SL 5 speed that Rolf-Dieter and I will be in. Of course. 8)

Good afternoon, Rick,

Do have or have you published a formal standby list to know where we stand and can therefore gauge the likelihood of attending?

Thanks,

James

Hi Rick,

I know you and the 2018 Euro Event Organizing Team are busy in your limited spare time (as time permits away from your busy lives) organizing a great event for us all. I'm wondering if any thought has been given to try in inviting Paul Bracq and his wife to the event? Our Polish Friends have managed now twice in doing so during there events. Just thinking out loud here. I know you have many other surprises planned for us :)

Best

Dieter

I understand that the Euro trip has been fully booked, but I would like to be added to the wait list in the event that there is a cancellation.

I had wanted to join the last trip to Italy, but I had been in the south of France for two months that spring, so I had spent as much time away as I could for that year.

If I could join the group for this event, I would try to make arrangements to stay on in Provence and the Côte d'Azure after the event.

Very kind regards,
Roland Boucher

Hello All ,

Time to pick up things again where we left off. 
Before the summer the event filled up very quickly , and nobody has back out so far . So our reserve list is still growing .
I've visited the Hotel and surroundings this summer , just to be sure  ;) And I can safely say it ticks all the boxes.

We will proceed with the organization and will answer all open questions coming days , and keep you all posted .   

Greetings from the 2018 Euro Event Team

Please put me +1 on the reserve list.

Suggest considering enlarging the main list due to uncontrolled enlargement of the reserve list  ;)

I am sure there is lots of accomodation opportunities there...

Yes... off course we still get wannabee attendees who ask us "why not extend the number of participants ?"   
Well its great that there are so many members who want to join , but its not that simple to handle a large group through winding mountain roads.
Secure parking space , lunch stops on the route we set out , are just a few things that come on our tracks organizing an event like this.
Then the Hotel must accommodate the attendees and have the rooms available in that period of time.

This being said ...We will investigate if we can extend it with a few more rooms and attendees ..

Keep you posted ...

Just to confirm, the Provence event is still scheduled for Sept. 27-30, correct?  I had to dig deep into this thread to find the dates. And I don't want to have the wrong dates in my agenda!

Also, any confirmed cars coming from the Netherlands besides mine, Martijn's and Peter's? I'm eager to take part in any convoy from the BeNeLux region.

Happy Motoring!

Brian

Thank god is wasn't just me struggling to find the dates! But when I did, I plonked them in the title for the travel arrangements thread and it looks like we are in agreement.

And we're back again ,

We must apologize for silence from the organizing team ... But that does not mean we didn't do anything.
For myself I had a lot of computer trouble and had to bring it all back in shape and running again , but this is all been taking care of for now.


So what's the status so far :

Well first of all some good news ..  The event is very well alive and still receive requests to participate , in the light of that  we were able to get another 5 more rooms
to accommodate 5 more teams on our reserve list .  I will get in contact with these members via pm this week.

Then we are reaching the time for the second payment . I will send everyone an update and request for that, so hold on we will get in contact with you all via your own mail.
Remember that payments should be in by 25th of March.     

In the meanwhile , Pascal ,Paul and myself are working on our Program and things are getting to go where we what them , we have some great plans and ideas so come September we will have a great program.

For now we would like to thank everyone for their patience ... but we will keep you posted on a somewhat regular basis now :).


Greetings from the 2018 Euro Event Team

If you need any help with editing the program materials in English, let me know. It's what I do!

Good afternoon, Rick,

Still wondering if there is a formal standby list that can be referenced to see how far down the list I may be and thus the likelihood of a spot opening up?

Thanks,

James
