OctoberTec - Meetup in Norfolk 14/15 October

As last time, this is not especially "organised", so booking with the hotel is all down to you to do, and nearer the time we'll organise some meals out etc.

In short - it is 2 nights from Friday 14th October (or 3 nights from Thursday 13th October) - and although the website is here: https://suryahotels.co.uk/hotels/dragonfly-kings-lynn/ - they want us to book by phone only - 01553 771707 , quoting you are part of the "DeLorean Group"
At the time of posting this it was just £127.50 total for an "advance purchase" weekend for 2 nights for 2 people including breakfast, or £189.75 for 3 nights. I know it's "only Kings Lynn", but this weekend last year was sold-out even without us, so don't leave this to the last minute - the hotel will very much be full I would expect.

Since this is not "officially organised" - I, nor anyone, would have no way of knowing if you have booked, so ideally find a way of letting me know - ideally by posting a reply here.



Here below is the obligatory copy and paste "intro"


Here it is then, may I present

"OctoberTec Weekend 2022"

This event is taking place across the weekend of Fri 14 and Sat 15 October 2021 in King's Lynn, Norfolk - although some will arrive on Thursday 13th.

As with the highly successful sell-out EuroTec events in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 ,2011, 2012, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, not to mention the other so-called "mini-meets" this will be based in the pretty county of Norfolk, this time at same 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, the focus here is on socialising. 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 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 recently 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, the hotel are not reserving any rooms for this, and are totally unaware we are coming.

The Itinerary:
- Arrive Friday from 14:00 onwards.
- Socialise, congratulate those who've braved the Norfolk roads in their DeLoreans
- dinner - maybe a local Indian restaurant - tbc
- Beer etc. (the bar is/was open 24 hours normally)
- 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 - tbc
- Beer etc. (the bar is/was open 24 hours normally)
- Sleep
- Sunday - Breakfast (included)
- Go home

Since this is a slightly un-organised "event" please just mention it in this thread if you are going to come along for either day (with or 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 - or email me, or tell anyone - I will probably find out :) - just so we have an idea of numbers.

In short - it is 2 nights from Friday 14th Oct


Any questions please ask

Please be aware as more rooms are booked the rate will go up

Seeing if there is anything we can do on that

In the future given we are guaranteed to sell a certain amount of rooms, might do a different way

All booked in for Fri-Sun - thanks for securing a top deal Alistair.

May pop along on the Thursday night again, if there's going to be a few of you there. :)

And yes, I will be bringing my car after a years absence at a meet!
