    Pre Channel Meet Up

    For those travelling over on Friday, do we want to meet up this side of the Channel e.g. 12.00 in the Eurotunnel car park (or earlier if that suits).
    Hope to discuss travel arrangements at Bluewater GTG next Saturday 11th March so any early comments welcome.

    Out tunnel is 09.50 departure so I will already be over by then but as everyone not staying in same hotel I suggest we meet at some central point perhaps a restaurant for a meal.

    Booked Eurotunnel

    Just to let you know that I have booked Eurotunnel for 09.50 crossing to Calais on Friday 19th and the return journey on Sunday 21st at 19.50 crossing ( local time ). In order to keep in touch I suggest we exchange telephone numbers. ( I might get lost!) If you agree please PM.

    Thanks - I plan to do the same; domestic matters have been distracting me but keep hoping things will resolve themselves so that I can background plan this GTG more!

    There is a fuel station on the way out of eurotunnel we always stop for fuel and coffee before going on.
    May be a good place to meet.

    Travelling over

    There seem to be a number of us booked on the 09.50 on Friday 19th May so Dell's suggestion to meet at the fuel station on the way out seems like a good idea. We can have a coffee and meet up with anybody on an earlier or slightly later train.

    Near Ieper there is a "Oldtimers" motor museum with cafeteria which could be a good place for an afternoon stop. More details can be found at www.oldtimermuseum.be/en I will make suggestions for a Friday night dinner meeting up nearer the event - unless someone else has any ideas.

    In due course will also make some possible suggestions for Sunday lunch if people would like to pan that in advance.

    Folks, I'm sorry but I've got to pull out as it turns out it's the only convenient time for us to take a 2 week holiday which we've been needing.

    I had booked a hotel room via booking. com at the Best Western Flanders Lodge Hotel which I'm going to cancel. If anyone wants the room, I'll hold off til this Saturday and will give the hotel a call as well if needed and let them know you'll be taking it.

    Sorry to hear that you will not be joining us on this occasion.
    Plenty of room for any other last minute participants.
