Entirely unrepentant about antisocial timings selected owing to extreme lack of cash: other people's choice to fall in with the time booked. There was nothing to stop anyone booking the night before and arranging to meet up on t'other side after overnight in Calais.

Nothing arranged for Folkestone to the best of my knowledge as many will be staying over at mine and convoying: you're welcome to floor space, but wouldn't save you much time from where you are.

"Interestingly"* the council has decided to put in extra parking bays (= roadworks and extreme reduction in already limited parking) on 10 September, works estimated to last for 10 days .... I really hope they are finished on time :lol: (I'll chat up some of the neighbours about borrowing space :))

There's a Travelodge etc. near to the terminal. We used it for the Challenge which was an early start too.

I'm seriously thinking about hitting the 'lodge, though think i might have enough Marriot points to squeeze a free stay!

I can't go. Just like every other time I've asked for some time out this year that co-insides with a special event, they've said no.
nice!
I'm very disappointed...

That's a shame Smiffy :( - although it won't be a party, there is another trip planned by the French BX-XM club November - see other thread - which means at least you'll get to see the collection if you can make that one.

Why is the phone number so important?

I don't give my number out, and i can't see a good reason why i need to in this circumstance.

For what purpose do you need this information?

Hi Vanny

I really don't know : I'm just the translater not the organiser

I'm going to ask why

Anyway in my opinion : just fill up what you want , there will not be any problem even if your card is quite empty : just note at least your pen name to know you have been there…! You will give it to me and I shall not read it just stock

Maybe to join people in case some changes occurs ??
Or to know where you are if not in time at the conservatoire witch door is locked up once the visit have begun ?
Please Don't be late : this is my advice !

I'll be back to you with their answer

Normally we send this card when booking and if conservatoire schedule have to be changed you can be adviced in case they are not member of the forum ( by example actually the 11 tour is full and if some french one sends his booking by post and choose 11 it could be nice to phone this people for changing …! )

For the english people I have managed the schedules and you don't need to be phoned , because I can PM all of you

Anyway I shall send each of you my mobile number (and every way to connect with me : like skype , viber , whatsApp ect… ) just in case …

I just hope it won't be usefull : it means that everything is OK for everybody : that's my wish

Hi everybody
I have a bad ( or good !) news to tell you : We cannot accept any more new bookink ( all those who have booked untill now are in don't worry : your tickets are in my hand …! )
Finally we succed in booking 90 people instead of 80 but could not get up to 120
If someone not yet booked want to come , it will be a great pleasure to welcome this people but without any entering to the conservatoire .
I hope you will understand
For those who would like to visit the conservatoire , there will be one more (last ???) chance :

Just forked out a small fortune for european break down cover, that should ensure absolutely no problems, according to the rules of sods law!
