I have a mate who's moved over to the Czech Republic. I'll drop him a line and see if there're any contacts re: translation, he might be able to put us in touch with.

How would everyone feel about a foreign meet then?

I thought the Rompers pub was a overwhelming sucess considering the size of the club and with 50quid speedferries crossings it doesnt make it a huge cost.

Having met Jon actually on Speedferries i know its not just me, Tim2cv, Jayboy and Jon thats up for it.

With enough warning it would be an absolute hoot! I am up for it, perhaps it might be best if it coincided with some motoring event on the continent, we could get them to attempt a RHD clutch cable change too!

For what it's worth I'd be happy to offer my (extensive) branding design (graphics generally but not website coding/HTML etc. - leave that to the fresh-brained young turks) and photographic experience. Want a logo/poster/flyer/map - anything really, I'm your man. And I've done T-shirt designs too.

I don't print them though.

As for a French BXcursion (that's what we could call it!) we have plently of time and it'd be a wow. Trouble is, it's slap bang in the middle of the French shut-down month and everything, accomodation/travel is a bit more of a challenge. I would suggest we all holiday, if poss in the same region and take a day out! No, seriously, IMHO it is better to book early to avoid disappointment. Has anyone checked out the LeMans site for info? I haven't but if a get a mo (I'm working tonight) I will...

Go on, let's do it. It'd be a good dry run for a European clan gathering in the Netherlands/Czech Republic - or, of course France!

I'm certainly up for expanding the "reach" of the club - after all, what's a BX good at? They're very happy to do lots of miles in a very relaxing sort of way. So why not do some of those miles abroad? I'm definitely up for a continental trip, and should be in a much better position to do so next year than I am now.

Will gladly volunteer myself for other duties once I've got back to having some of the basics of life: namely a landline and non-public internet connection. I used to liaise a lot with customers in Europe and elsewhere for a previous employer, though admittedly they were self-selecting English-speakers as they all sold English-language books. By the way, Jon, I WILL get at least one article on trim to you - I promise!

i really like the idea of a club shop.

I buy lots of parts (nearly a thousands pounds worth over the last year) from GSF and would appreciate NOT to have to go to my local shop whereby i get hounded for owning a BX.....

Anyway, they have no idea about citroens and they rarely seem to get the rights bits.

Hello Jon,

French speaker, reader and writer here too, I'm a native of Belgium.
Also Dutch, though I've lost much practice of it.
