Forum rules

The main Meetings forum is designed for meetings with a firm date and location in mind, and this info should be contained in the thread title.

If you want to gauge interest or ask a more general question, please use the "Provisional/gauging interest" forum.

Once meetings have taken place, threads will be moved to the "past meets" forum rather than the Coffee Bar.

Stickies can be arranged for regular, established, meets with a set calendar of upcoming dates- please pm a mod to discuss.

No drumming up of additional interest by cross posting in other sections please, unless by prior moderator approval

For more info/guidance, please see this post from the forum founder.

Anyone going?

We're thinking of driving up via Copenhagen. We had planned on visiting Copenhagen on the way back from the 2016 International, but it was too expensive because it was the weekend the city was holding the European Gay Pride weekend!! :o No room at the inn at that time...

Everything will be OK in the end. If it's not OK, it's not the end...

Thinking about it.

I drove there with the 96 in 2015. Absolutely fantastic.
Wall to wall SAABS, and the biggest Auto jumble you've ever seen in your life and it's ALL SAAB stuff!

It is however, since the demise of the Harwich to Esjberg ferry, a very long drive.
In 2015 we took the North Shields to Ijmuiden (advertised as Newcastle _ Amsterdam) ferry.
From Ijmuiden to Trollhattan is around 800 miles......
The North Shields ferry is an overnight 16 hour crossing, + another night on the way unless you think you can drive 800 miles in one day.
I certainly can't!

If I go this year it'll be Fly drive.
Not sure yet.
