Hello All

Ok we have confirmation from the hotel and its time to reveal our destination.

Austria is our destination … to be more specific Seefeld in Tirol.
Special thanks to Peter who  personally selected the places to visit and the great routes to drive ,

We knew that the chosen 2020 destination was very likeable to everyone so we tried to be as near to that as possible.
We got a great deal with the hotel ( attendees will get to more specific information about that ) and we will stay there for 3 days .

So wright on your calender 23..26 September, 2021 Pagoda Euro Event :  Seefeld , Austria.
Our event is full at this moment , but our reserve list is still open.

The deposit will be made out to the hotel what will make it solid.  Now lets hope the world will be over this dreadful covid 19 crisis and we can meet up in 2021.

Stay safe and healthy !


Greetings from the  2021 Euro Event Team ,

Peter , Johannes and Rick.

Seefeld...!
H(u)mmm, yes have heard of that one before. Where isit?

Ah, between Insbruck (been there w/ Pagoda on the way to/from EE 2016) and Sautens (been there w/o Pagoda).
My Pagoda already knows that part of the World a bit (but not enough)!

Absolutely phantastic, looking very very much forward to it. Can't await it. :D ;D
Folks, only 11 months to go!

Rick, Peter and Johannes, thank you so much for this! ;D

Best,

Good news !
Thanks to all of you, and in particular to Peter for this nice location.

We expect to know the name of the Hotel pretty soon, it seems that there are plenty, and all are fantastic, in order to forget 2020 and dream to the 2021 Euro Event.

In the meantime, let's furbish our loved Pagodas.

Thanks Rick, Peter and Johannes. Great work!

All we need now is freedom to travel across the pond.  Let’s hope the situation clears soon.

Great work  Rick, Peter and Johannes.


Like Ralph, we need to have the  international departure bans lifted and at this stage they are suggesting at best mid next year.  Here is hoping as we cannot go anywhere at the moment.

Guys, Mizesko Here.

I just read an article advising AGAINST INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL THROUGH THE END OF THE YEAR, even after getting the vaccine against COVID-19.

Not sure what Kathy and I will do yet. A good pal is in the ICU with it right now, with no pre-existing conditions.  No improvement after 8 days.

We need to research more.

We are starting to get the same information here as well that it will be at least to the end of the year and only what is classed as essential international flights will be approved and a covid inoculation certificate will be required for that. All future flights with Qantas or any other aircraft coming into and out of Australia will require inoculation certificates for each passenger.

I have been following the situation in nearby Italy fairly closely as we need to return as soon as it is safe. The emergency measures there were extended to July a few days ago. Six months in the USA has now stretched into fourteen and I can't see a window opening until at least mid summer. 

We are keeping our fingers crossed!

Hallo!

I understand you are presently full up on this event, but what the heck, put my wife Blair and I on the wait list, please. One never knows...

Great choice of venue, only a short drive from my birthplace in Vöcklabruck!

Reinhold,


You never know, 


At this point the chances of Kate and I being allowed to fly out of and back into Australia under the current Australian  COVID International departure rules in 2021 are very slim.
 
All eyes on the Covid inocculation success both here and all over the world.

Hello guys ,

A small update. 

A world in lock-down and in grips of a virus , is not good for a event organisers.   
We're all having our fingers crossed that the inoculation will be the answer and that we can proceed with our event.
Our hotel did not require a deposit until August , so in case of a "no go "we will refund everyone asap.
Or we will go ahead with a spring event in 2022 , just to keep all options open. 

And yes we are still filled up to the max Reinhold , but i will put you on the reserve list.

Stay healthy ...

The 2021 Euro Event Team

Hey, how is everybody?- Hope we are all managing to stay Healthy somehow.

I'm interested to know if we think the event is still a possibility this year?  If still no idea- no problem.

Us Brits have been in lockdown for around 7 months and we're ready to party,  if you Europeans will let us in of course ;) ;D ;D

Well actually, I need to cancel as Australians are not allowed to travel overseas and will not be allowed to do so until July 2022 at this point. Our vaccination rate is relatively slow and the government wants the population vaccinated to better than 70% before they will re-open borders.


As an island state, like New Zealand, we have almost zero coronavirus in the general population and we want to try to keep it that way. There are currently 15 for the whole of Australia in the last two months and they are all in one family cluster and started from a problem in hotel quarantine


So unfortunately i must withdraw as the first to do so.

Well..., Andy, yes...
Now, I'm not the organizer and cannot prove for sure,
but I have heard (secret) rumors that chances are good... ;)

As to coming from England...,
become vaccinated ASAP (I think your vaccination rate in UK is pretty high, isn't it?),
have this certified, and then it should work fine...

Let's cross fingers.....

Andy and Achim,


Pretty upset Kate and i will miss this one. Other than the 50th year celebration in Germany where i was doing the Australian get together that year, i don’t think I have missed one of the Euro events from the start.
And the State of Victoria has gone into lockdown today for 7 days as they have had a few cases of Covid this week.

Hello all ,

The last couple of weeks we have been a bit reluctant to give the full go-ahead , but things are really looking up at the moment.
Vaccination rate is high all over Europe at the moment, so it's green light for our Euro event in September.

So it gives us much pleasure to say ; We're on !

We will pay our deposit to the Hotel and make the booking solid.

Peter and Johannes will travel to the region to put together the tours and the places we will visit.
We will send all of the attendees a program a couple of weeks before the event.
I cannot give much away at this point ,but to give you all a little peek .....get your " lederhozen "out .

And gary ,we are really sorry to hear you and Kate can't participate , as one of our most loyal participants you will be missed.
I will save you a rally shield. 

We will pick up were we left of and get to work to give you all a great 2021 Pagoda Euro Event.

Greetings from the 2021 Team.

Peter, Johannes and Rick

Thank you for the notification. I am in the UK and would like to be able to attend, if possible.

Please can you advise whether this is possible, and details when available.

Hopefully we will eventually get out of lockdown in the UK and be allowed to travel more normally (incl to Europe) by September.

Dear Euro Event Attendees ,

The Emails with general details have been send out, and i hope every one of you received it . If not please let us know.
If there are any changes, for instance shirt sizes ?  ( maybe one size bigger  :) ), please let us know before the end of this month.

For now we have a couple of cancellations and the first members on our reseve list have been contacted.
For those who have cancelled ( happens every year ) we want to say that since we have payed the hotel deposit and some goods that allready have been ordered and payed for,
we can only return your deposit if someone takes your place. This is strictly a volunteer initiative so we hope you understand.

We are very happy that despite the delay we have a great Event planned , and really looking forward to it.
We will keep you informed !


Greetings from the Pagoda Euro Event Team ,

Peter , Johannes and Rick

Hi all...It's been a long time since I was on here!  In western Austria things are going very well; they just lifted the requirement of FFP2 masks; cloth ones or surgical styles are acceptable but must be worn in all closed locations (shops, apothecary, etc.)
Vaccination rates are high here.  (However, we have seen Portugal go from successful green to the orange list in a matter of weeks--the variants have really messed things up.)  We will see what all this tourism does to our numbers. 

You should keep aware of changing requirements, especially if you want to drive across several European countries.  We are classified as Pendlers, so have been able to travel without restrictions, but the requirements have been ever-changing, the paperwork onerous, and the border guards are often seemingly without any instructions. They are making it up as they go along. Each country maintains its power to change the rules at any time. Let's hope this summer tourism gives governments some practice in facilitating FMOP. 

Anyway, you guys are going right by us; we are just down the road.  Maybe we can join in part of the drive or a lunch-break or something?  So far, summer has been cool and wet; let's hope for "goldener Oktober" weather!

I remember when I was at the festival in London, something similar sounded. On good speakers, the sound is completely different. That's probably why they are so expensive. Now it is easier to rent equipment from hire sound equipment in Surrey and arrange a cool holiday. For example, I remember a friend's birthday very well, when he decided that he did not want to spend his birthday in a banal way. He decided to arrange a light party with cool music and audio equipment hire and lighting equipment helped him a lot in this. Everyone was satisfied with the party!

Hello- I’d like to attend with wife- I didn’t bring my ‘67 230 SL to Europe with me, so can we attend as spectators?  Is there an agenda published?
Thanks

Heads up…
The Urlaub express runs from Düsseldorf to Innsbruck, leaves Wednesday 22nd Sept arriving 8am Thursday 23rd, the day the event starts. Stick your car on the overnight train…

I’m very tempted. The return is less convenient

Another heads up...NOAA's European projections issued yesterday look like we're going to continue our rainy, gray, and cool weather through August (with a heat wave in late Aug).  After that it will probably be an early fall.  So pack your rain gear and mukluks, cause here in the Alps it may be a soggy affair!  We're expecting an early close for the Hochalpenstrasse.

I sent my car to Maine for a visit with Gernold to check things over before I ship the car to Europe for the big event.  Good thing I did, as my driveshaft flex disk was shredded, my brake reservoir caps were cracked and a mouse had built a nest in my air intake.  The biggest issue was the flex disk.  This would have surely failed in Europe which would have been a real problem.

I almost did not go through the extra effort to have the car checked.  I hope my "near-miss" spurs others to send their car in for a check-over before the event starts.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in September and thanks again to our organizers (Rick, Peter, and team) for putting on another amazing event.

Tom, good advice! I took my 230 to my expert mechanic Nico a few weeks ago for a pre-trip checkup. New oil, changed the brake fluid (don't want to mess with faulty brakes on those mountain twisties), and everything checked out fine. Just good to have that peace of mind. Glad you did the same and averted potential disaster.

I'll be bringing my oldest daughter, Hailey, along for this trip. She just graduated from university and is excited to return to Europe and see Austria. Reminded me of when you brought your girls along for these trips several years ago. Looking forward to the ride!

Looking forward, we hope this lockdown business will be behind us next year so that you will be able to attend the proposed event in the Chicago area.  You will be missed in Seefeld.

Dear Pagoda Euro Event Attendees ,

Less then 2 weeks before we meet up in Austria / Tirol , we have some last minute program changes.
Peter made a couple of beautiful tours and we have very nice places to visit , avoiding the general busy touristic roads and area it’s is not a easy task , but you will not be disappointed.
But besides touring and driving we also have time to relax and have some fun .  So we have a small contest on the side, a “ Concours d’Elegance “ in the traditional outfits from the region we visit . 
With great prices to be won !
So guys and girls dress up and make an effort so we will have ourselves a great Tyrolean Evening.

Many of us start their travels to Seefeld a few day earlier and we heard there are some of you that meet up already on the way over . Great to see some convoys going south to the mountains.

Furthermore we hope every one has taking care of their car's . Please make sure your brakes and shocks are in good order , since we will be driving in the mountains. .

We will get back to you if there are more things to share .

Stay safe and healthy !

Best regards from us and counting the days .

Rick,

For those of us who don't normally keep a few pair of lederhosen in our closets, can you explain the comment about "traditional outfits?" What exactly are those? Some guidance on what we should wear, please! Is there a "Lederhosen-R-Us" store in the Netherlands?

Even if there is, you can trust me, nobody wants to see my sun-starved legs (sunglasses may be required)!

Cheers,
Brian

Martijn passed along to me this site where you can buy a "digital vignette," which covers the national road tax and allows your car to pass through any toll booths in Austria. It costs EUR 14.95 for a 10-day pass. Once you pay online, you get the pass via email and your car is registered within minutes.

From the Austrian vignette website:

Vignettes are required for all vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes, driving on motorways and expressways across Austria. Upon placing your order, a digital vignette will be linked to your number plate. This means that your number plate has been registered in the Austrian database and, hence, will automatically be recognized by any barrier at any toll booth. This means that one can choose any toll lane at any toll station and the barriers will open automatically. Moreover, another advantage is the fact that during inspections, it can be quickly assessed whether you have purchased a digital vignette or not.

I'm not sure if we'll be passing through any toll booths, but we figure it's better to be prepared than face a fine if stopped by Austria's finest.

This is the vignette website in Dutch: https://vignetoostenrijk.nl

This is the English version: https://vignette-austria.co.uk

Happy Motoring and see you all Thursday!

Correction on the cost of the 10-day vignette on my note below:  It is GBP 14.95, or EUR 9.50.

Also, just FYI, here is the website with the latest COVID-related rules on entering Austria.  Basically, if you have been fully vaccinated there's no problem.

If you are not vaccinated, you need to show a negative COVID test AND register online for pre-travel clearance if you are not from a designated "safe country." Countries not on the safe list include the USA and the UK. In addition, you have to self-quarantine for at least five days.

Hopefully, we're all vaccinated.

https://www.austria.info/en/service-and-facts/coronavirus-information/entry-regulations

More details are on the website.

If you are travelling through and overnighting in Germany to or from Austria, you might also want to read that country's COVID rules:

https://www.bundesgesundheitsministerium.de/en/service/gesetze-und-verordnungen/guv-19-lp/coronaeinreisev/coronaeinreisev-en.html

If you have been in a high-risk country in the past 10 days before arrival, you need to register online.

Correction on the cost of the 10-day vignette on my note below:  It is GBP 14.95, or EUR 9.50.

Hi,
the official price for a 10-day vignette in Austria is 9,50€ (digital or on paper) but can vary from different Internet broker up to 20€.
This is the official web site where you can buy it for 9,50€: https://shop.asfinag.at/en/toll-products/digital-toll-sticker/01-10-tagesvignette-pkw-2021/

We departed today… through Belgium (eating some Belgian Frites), Germany to Vianden, Luxemburg. Car parked nicely at the hotel parking, locking in a 911 Targa. The village is still suffering from the floods earlier this summer…

Hi,
one remark about buying a digital vignette today or in the next days:

When you try to order one to will be asked if you are a "consumer" or a "company".
If your answer is "consumer" your first possible validity date starts in 18 days, means after our event. If your answer is "company" you can choose the right dates.

Why? See FAQ or ... "consumer rights"
"Why is the digital vignette valid from the 18th day after purchase at the earliest when purchased in the Webshop?
For consumers, the digital vignette or the digital section toll annual card cannot be used immediately after purchase. This also means, however, that you can edit your product before the start of the validity period without having to give any reasons (registration number, validity period).
This restriction does not apply to companies. The reason for this is that, according to the European Consumer Protection Directive, consumers have the right to withdraw from the online purchase of a product or service within 14 days. As this withdrawal is possible by e-mail and by post, a further three days are allowed for cancellation by post until arrival at ASFINAG."

That means if you choose "consumer" you have all rights but no posibilities and if you choose "company" you have no rights but all posibilties.

If you purchase the vignette at the link I provided below, you can buy it as a consumer and set the dates. There is a disclaimer/warning before you purchase in which you agree that by purchasing it you are giving up your right to withdraw from the purchase within 14 days. I bought my 10-day vignette and set the effective date for 22 September.

Yes it is advisable to purchase a vignette , it might be unavoidable to use the autobahn .
But nearly all the gas stations in the south of Germany sell them , so no worry’s .

Btw the weather forecast is looking good :)

Hi,
on your route to the south you should visit Trier, not far from Vianden, once capitol of the West Roman Empire and oldest town of Germany, worth seeing:     ANTE ROMAM TREVIRIS STETIT ANNIS MILLE TRECENTIS. PERSTET ET ÆTERNA PACE FRVATVR. AMEN.

Checking in in Boutique Hotel Adler 1604 in Schiltach. Proprietor of the hotel is very friendly. Moved half his terrace to let me park there. And is the chef. And made sure we could eat at his restaurant, which is a good thing. Because Tuesday is “ruhetag” in Schiltach… pretty much everything else is closed.

Out of Paris early this morning via TGV (high speed train) to Frankfurt.  Plan is to meet up with Achim, Reinhard, Martijn and Brain.  Then onto the scenic routes towards Seefeld in Tirol.

Friends,

We arrived early and once again Team Euro has found a lovely spot for us to gather for our event.  Thank you Peter, Rick and others that worked so hard to put on the event.  Went for a 5 mile hike up the mountain by our lodge.  Highly recommend!

For those that may want to wash off  the “Road Patina” from a long drive, we also found a car wash close to our hotel:

You will need to go into the shop and pay, then bring the card they give you to the automatic wash.  If you have a road princess that cannot tolerate an auto wash, they have a hand wash as well.

Looking forward to being together again this weekend!

Tom & Mary Catherine
