    Final plan thread

    Thought it best to dump all the info in here so its easy to see in one place

    Meeting place on Saturday morning.

    7:30am - leave no later than 8am
    Premier Inn Hotel
    Cherry Garden Lane
    Folkestone
    Kent
    CT19 4AP

    Directions
    Leave M20 at J13. At first roundabout turn right, at second roundabout turn right onto Folkestone A20. At traffic lights turn right. The hotel is on the right.

    Tunnel - 8:20 check in for 8:50 depart



    Trip should be about 2 hours give or take alittle. Will probably stop on the way for fuel/stretch the legs. If you need fuel please top up as it gets a nightmare if we end up stopping every 10 minutes for someone else to fill up. Its about 120 miles so take that into account with your mpg etc.

    http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=d&sa...24,3.55957&z=9

    The journey takes us past aalst, so those staying there can drop into the town and find the hotel etc. Those going into Brussels just stay on that road for another 15-20mins

    The show doesn't start until 10am, but we should get there alittle earlier about 9ish would be good. Its 10euro per car, and food and drink are available and very well priced.

    You'll need to leave the 2 hours again to get back to the tunnel, so i think most will be going about 4ish to get to the tunnel for just before 6pm. Please show some thanks to our hosts, and let someone else know if you do leave early so we dont think your MIA. It is very relaxed and chilled out but be under no illusions this show has some of the nicest cars in europe in attendance. Various recent magazine featured cars are likely to be there

    Do we want to bring the banner stand? What about flyers?

    I would say no to the banner, it looked totally out of place last year, as they literally just park up in the order they arrive.

    It'll be set up properly this year if we take it.



    On a side note, looks like some **** has been trying to smuggle some fire throuh the chunnel on a lorry, fingers crossed it's all sorted and back to normal by the time travel.

    its not upto just me but I would take the flags over the banner to be honest. Might be worth taking the VAG-OPEL banner we had made though (its small discret and can just lay on the floor or something)
