I too would love to see your insignia there.
Got to push for maximum number of 40s!
I have just moved my ferry crossing to the night before & changed my night stay in dover to a night stay in Calais to allow more time for travelling on the Friday,

Unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to make this one. I’ve spent ages reviewing the route, ferry crossings, driving times etc...

It’s just too far for me I’m afraid, mainly due to the time restrictions each side with mine and the wife’s work.

I’d love to do it one year though! Perhaps next year :roll:
Regards, Carl

Due to the well known pandemic reasons, prohibited events or meetings, closed boarders and all thoughts about the safety and health for you and your fellows.

We have to cancel the meeting this year

We would be very busy the next weeks but conditions getting worse every day. Cancelling the event on the last minute would be a lot more difficult for us, all attendees, the location and all people involved.

It's very hard to drop the enthusiasm glasses off and we are very sorry to give you this announcement but it's objectively better to avoid any possible problems.

Thank you for your understanding :cry:

Probably we'll start another try in autumn or we'll see us to Vol.: 14 next year.

The very best wishes to you and your nearest and dearest

Not what I hoped for, but it is the most sensible thing to do...
Thanks for letting us know, Florian!

It looks like all events are heading the same way currently.
Who knows what’s in store for this year.
Will all of 2020 be cancelled?

Nobody knows at the moment :roll: but some regulations could be easily sustained till autumn :(
It depends on the expansion the next weeks

I am sorry to hear this after all the effort that has been put in, such as shame but very expected considering how fast the virus is moving and the restrictions we are all being/going to be placed under. Fingers washed and crossed for next year ;)
