The entry list in the event Roadbook lists 170 entries plus three unnumbered entries listed as ORG.  I know two in the entry list who came with other than a Pagoda and there could have been a few others. I think that it is safe to say there were well over 150 Pagodas.

love the moss green metallic, and the "aubergine/plum" colour (no clue on the name)

I think I spotted about three of my old Nokias in that pile too

What a fantastic event that was. 

Great to see so many familiar faces again.
Really... compliments to the organizers.

Hoping to see many of you again at our next Euro Event, next year or the year after ?

Now that is a good question. Europe are normally the "even" years - 10/12/14/16/18/22 which would suggest 2024
But that is then 3 consecutively (which we also did in 12-13 (willingen)-14)

Pagoda Fest  2023 Chicago is coming in a few weeks.  Was this Euro 60th Anniversary event organized by our Pagoda SL Group?  I thought our members simply attended.

Correct, but Achim 114015 was very much involved in the organisation / coordination.

And yes, JamesL is correct. We typically organise one event every 2 years... but it depends a little on the energy of the organisers... I think JamesL and myself were volunteered to organise the next one. So we will start communicating...
