MARCHTEC: Norfolk DeLorean Mini-Meet-Up 15 / 16 March 2019

Here it is then, may I present

"MarchTec 2019"

This event is taking place across the weekend of Fri 15 and Sat 16 March 2018 in King's Lynn, Norfolk.

As with the highly successful sell-out EuroTec events in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 ,2011, 2012, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, not to mention the other so-called "mini-meets" this will be based in the pretty county of Norfolk, this time at same new location, still close to the Royal Family's home at Sandringham - on the edge of the town of King's Lynn.
For pictures of our previous events please click here

For this meet, rather than the 30-car summer events, the focus here is on socialising (the car park might be a bit too cold!). If you've never been before don't be scared! Many people who come to these meet-ups only know one or two others (or less). This is a good way to meet up with like minded people and swap tips. For non-owners there will be more time to ask questions, look around the cars, etc. The hotel is http://www.dragonflykingslynn.co.uk/ . Accommodation is not exactly 5 star, but the hotel has a large tarmac car park and has just been fully refurbished. There are 50 rooms in total.

Attendance at these events is always high, always sells out, and many DeLorean cars are expected this time as usual. As with the previous big events here, this will be a guaranteed sell-out, and we can only for sure take bookings via the forum during the next week. Provisionally 20 rooms have been blocked booked for this event, and there is a special rate if you book and pre-pay right now. Once this offer expires you will have to book direct with the hotel, and at the higher rates only, and only if they still have availability. Strong interest has already been shown again for this event, as before there is NO charge for the event itself, just the cost of food, drink and accommodation

The Itinerary:
- Arrive Friday from 14:00 onwards.
- Socialise, congratulate those who've braved the Norfolk roads in their DeLoreans
- dinner at the hotel - price £10-£15 - advance order might be needed nearer the time
- Beer etc. (the bar is open 24 hours)
- Sleep(?)
- Saturday - Breakfast (included)
- Hang around car park kicking tyres, etc.
- 1.30 Lunch at "Arbuckles", local large popular restaurant nearby
- 3.00 Tech session
- Bar
- dinner at the hotel - price £10-£15 - advance order might be needed nearer the time
- Beer etc. (the bar is open 24 hours)
- Sleep
- Sunday - Breakfast (included)
- Go home

Current phone-in room prices including breakfast: To obtain these rates you will phone the hotel and quote the "DeLorean" group and ask for these rates - let me know if you have problems getting these prices
Single: £85 per night
Double/Twin: £89 per ROOM per night (£44.50 per person per night)

Food prices:
Friday night - £10-£15 approx. (exact details are t.b.c.)
Saturday lunch - up to you :)
Saturday night - £10-£15 approx. (exact details are t.b.c.)

So a typical couple staying for 2 nights can expect to pay just over £100 each total including all 5 meals (plus drinks). Yes I know it's cheap! :D


If you would like to come along for just the day on Saturday only, or Friday evening then you're more than welcome - you'll just have to pay for lunch and/or dinner if you want it. Please just mention it in this thread if you are going to come along for either day (without staying), or if you have any other questions. If you'd rather not post here :shock: then click here to send a message to Arran now.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE BOOKED DIRECT SO I CAN BOOK YOU IN FOR DINNER/LUNCH ETC. TOO. - The hotel are unlikely to tell me. Any method will do - either message or email me, or post on here - in either case I just need to know how many people and which days.

Once this hotel is filled the nearest alternative would probably be the Premier Inn in Kings Lynn.


Any questions please ask!

Just to add, currently it is much much cheaper to book direct through the hotel's website using the Wine Dine and Dream Offer: https://www.dragonflykingslynn.co.uk/hotel-offers/

Choose "Book 2 nights" - then make sure you select the correct weekend - 15th MARCH - and the total price for a couple would be £149 total including dinner on the first night and breakfast both mornings. Yes that is £149 total, for the both nights and both people. Single is actually the same price, so pointless choosing a single, and someone else might benefit from the free extras :)

Gah. I knew this would happen. My delorean is due to arrive in the country around the 15th so may not be able to attend as i could be sorting the car out.

Then again it is just an estimated time and i guess it will have to clear customs first too which could take years...

Think i will just turn up on the saturday. See ya there. Hopefully i can attend the june meet in my delorean.

Do you pay for the dinner when youre there or before tge day?

On the day - it will be very very informally arranged, depends on numbers.

It will take a few days to clear though customs. So it will be early the following week before you will be able to go and collect it.

I've finally sorted out my standby after it was changed due to unforseen issues arising at work.

I'll be there both nights for a full weekend of tech playing fun.

See you there!
