Oh dear, I'm not on the site for a couple of days... and it looks like this initiative is filling up quickly!

Karin and I will be there!

Sounds very interesting. Thanx for the great initiative!

If it is not too far from Copenhagen/Denmark, then I am definitely in. :-)

Cheers,

Dieter, sorry, but that sentence was somewhat tongue-in-cheek. I have tried to get my wife to go with me the past three European events, but because we have kids and no family support here, it has always been impossible. But I always have my "backups" who want to go with me ... my dear friend Tim from the states, who went to Goodwood with me in 2015, and my sister Cathy, who went to Italy with me in 2016. Last year, my wife Rene was planning to go to France, but we couldn't swing it, nor could Tim or Cathy.  If I should reach that stage again, I'll certainly let you know. But don't count on it. :)

Na, Christian...,
It won't. Not too far definitely. ;)
A mere 1'300 kms, not more.
You can do that in 13 - 15 hrs, depending how fast you're going.
Two tank stops, that's it. If you drive carefully, one tank-stop.
Your Pagoda can stand that - for sure.
So, you should be doing so too. ;)


Cheers,
Achim

(never did more than 1'200 kms per day before with the Pagoda)

Sure, Achim. But how do you know we are heading SOUTH this time? Do you have some inside intelligence?  8)

Achim, even JJD and Karin and I might join in in the trip down in 2020.  Would be a great fun convoy, perhaps sort of getting together in the Eiffel somewhere where the Brits can catch up with us if they can..... and yes, the direction is SOUTH from where we are...
But I can't tell you yet where to stop...

Update :

Wow what a response , and we thought that the Euro Event wasn't alive anymore.
Thanks for the great enthusiasm, the more reason for us to proceed and try to make it a great event again .

But there are some rules , we need to share with you all.
We received many entries via this topic and PM , meaning we are already filled up.

First off all ; … We have set the maximum number of attendees at 30 teams ( 60 persons )
Why ?  Well, the hotel in the area we want to go must be able to accommodate us. 
And because more is not that easy to handle, for instance on winding roads and lunch stops.
More teams ( people ) will serve no one and will not make it a better Event. 

Thats why ; Open for full members only , and first com first serve ..
But long time and loyal attendees have priority, as do members who come with a Pagoda, instead of vistors.
We do want it to be a Pagoda Event and not a rental car-drive ( rentals only in case of accidents, many of us know why  :) )

Besides that we are not professional car-holiday organizers, this is a volunteer initiative with no
commercial intentions of any kind. 

Thats why we have decided to open a reserve list … We know from experience that the closer we get to the date of the event we always invited teams from the reserve list , so please keep on signing in.

The members who signed up will get a PM with an invitation, and a request to pay the deposit, as we did previous years. The payment of this deposit is the only way to guarantee your place !


We will get back with more info as soon as possible.

greetings

The 2020 Euro Event team
