I had originally hoped to have a Pagoda for this event but due to circumstances it has not turned out that way.


I am thus looking for a passenger seat if anyone has a spare otherwise i feel i need to withdraw to allow someone with a Pagoda to attend as some others have had to do.


Any spare seats?

I too have to withdraw since I had planned to either secure a passenger seat in a Pagoda or catch a ride in a rented car and share the cost.
I understand that preference is given to Members that attend with a Pagoda. I fully understand this. I cannot at this point ship my Pagoda to Europe (perhaps later in the next century :) ). I did enjoy last years Event in France very much (Garry and I shared Andrew’s Pagoda).

Anyway, I learned last week that the Event is fully booked, (and I was not selected) I wish everyone much fun at the 2020 Event.

Happy Holidays to all and your Families.

Garry,
I have actually started to make arrangements to ship my 230SL because Rick had informed me that they only wanted Pagodas at the event.
Since we shared a Pagoda at the Merano event you might have had a seat again.  :)
Now it appears that a new reason popped, that is, to give new members a chance to attend.
I guess we have done our bit keeping the group going and can now be discarded.  ;)
Fine, I'll just save my efforts and money for something else.

Dear members ,

It is off course very disappointing to hear that we cannot please everyone .
Especially when all we wanted to do is organize an Event when nobody wanted to , or made promises and then backed out.

Again we don't want to exclude any one from this event ! 
But we are not a professional travel agency , we do this because we enjoyed former events.
We gain nothing with this , as a matter affect we loose ! ( time , effort and money )

And yes we are restricted to a maximum number of attendees … why ?  Because the Hotel can only handle so many people in the area we want to visit .
We want nice stopover and lunch stop's So we need nice pitoresk places who can handle 60 or 70 people.
We want winding roads and nice places to visit .. Doing this with 30 a 35 cars is a challenge , and needs to be safe.
This is why we have to restrict the number of attendees .

Last couple of years we have gathered a group of enthusiastic attendees who always sign up immediately . And this is great but also leaves no room for new attendees that are willing to drive 1000 and more km with their pagoda to join up .
This is why we stated that members coming with a Pagoda have priority at first ! By no means that former loyal attendees are excluded.

We apologize that we did not communicate as much as we wanted last couple of months , and that it has lead to misunderstandings .
We will continue with the event , and pick up communication where left off in November .


Thank you ,

On behalve of the 2020 Pagoda Event team .

Alfred,


Have they resolved this and you are included?  I see Rolf Dieter has moved to the Polish event.
