And here is what you've all been waiting for:

"EuroTec 2015"
Yes it's back!

Image

This event is taking place across the weekend of Fri 12th and Sat 13th June 2015 in Norfolk.

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

The hotel (same as the October and March mini-meets) is http://ffolkes-arms-hotel.co.uk/ . Accommodation is not exactly 5 star, but it's quiet, and has a huge tarmac car park. There are 20 rooms in total.

Follow this event on Facebook!: Image

Attendance at these events is always high, and 2012's event was attended by over 100 people, and over 30 DeLorean cars.

As with the previous 7 big events here, this will be a guaranteed sell-out, and the best rooms will be allocated in booking order. The entire hotel (20 rooms) has been blocked booked for this event's exclusive use, so please book soon to ensure it stays this way! (EDIT: this hotel has sold out, second "overflow" hotel now in use) 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. Previous years have been attended by 30-40 DeLoreans. Due to the size of this hotel (20 rooms) I doubt that will be the case this time, since we can't fit everyone in the rooms.

The basis of the weekend will be around 'Workshop / Tech sessions' throughout the weekend, as well as socialising and meeting new faces. As before we will take over the bar for the weekend :wink:

Many more 'activities' are planned, details to follow.

Ed Uding from DeLorean Europe is attending.

As before we will be arranging a scenic drive and other activities over the weekend (mainly on the Saturday) - more to be announced later. There will be plenty of entertainment throughout the weekend, with something for everyone. As usual, the main organisers will be Arran, Alistair and Nick T.

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 Itinerary:
- Arrive Friday from 14:00 onwards
- Socialise, congratulate those who've braved the Norfolk roads in their DeLoreans
- Buffet style dinner 7:45pm (£15 per head)
- Beer etc. (a late bar has been arranged)
- Sleep
- Saturday - Breakfast (included)
- Hang around car park kicking tyres, etc.
- (leave at 9:30) 10.30am - Go Karting event at a local outdoor track (team endurance race in teams of 3) - £20 per person
- 1.30 Lunch at "Arbuckles", local large popular restaurant nearby
- 4.00 Product Fair (Ed Uding, others)
- Bar
- Buffet style dinner - 7:45pm (£15 per head)
- Beer etc. (a late bar has been arranged)
- Karaoke night from 9 until midnight with a DJ
- Sleep
- Sunday - Breakfast (included)
- Go home

Room prices including breakfast:
Single: £45 per night
Double/Twin: £65 per ROOM per night (£32.50 per person per night)
Family of 3: £80 per ROOM per night
Family of 4: £90 per ROOM per night

Food prices:
Friday night - still t.b.c. but approx £15
Saturday lunch - up to you / t.b.c. / approx £10 (free choice from menu)
Saturday night - still t.b.c. but approx £15

So a typical couple staying for 2 nights can expect to pay under £100 each total including all 5 meals (plus drinks). Yes I know it's cheap! :D
There are no other costs!

If you would like to come along for just the day on Saturday only then you're more than welcome - you'll just have to pay for lunch if you want it.
If you would like to come along for either evening meal without staying then it would be £15 max (t.b.c.) per person for either night. 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.


Book Now!:


UPDATE, APRIL 2015

With over 50 people now booked in, the main hotel is now full accommodation-wise. So if you are thinking of coming but haven't booked now is the time!
The "official" second hotel is http://www.abacushotels.co.uk/knights-h ... l-and-spa/ - located 3 miles away, on the same road. So far I know of at least 5 people booked in there. Nearer the time, when we have an idea of numbers we will arrange late-night transport (if needed) for those who wish to have a drink on both nights.
Obviously you'll want to join us for dinner at the hotel on both nights, will just be a case of paying £30 total per person for the two evening meals on Friday/Saturday - you'll do this on the day at the hotel. So all you need to do is book your room, then let me know on here or by PM/email and I will add you to the list. If you wish to have breakfast at the "main" hotel then again just let me know, it won't be a lot of money, i'll sort out a low price.
This link seems to be the easiest way of booking the hotel. There is no deposit to pay, and you can cancel up to 1 day before: http://www.booking.com/hotel/gb/knights ... en-gb.html

If you want to be nearer, both of these B&Bs are walkable:
http://www.booking.com/hotel/gb/linden- ... en-gb.html (1 room left)
http://www.booking.com/hotel/gb/willow- ... en-gb.html (3 rooms left, longer walk)


So far, with confirmed bookings to date we are expecting about 25 DeLoreans (over 50 people coming so far), so presumably this number will rise once more people book.

Any questions please ask!

Great news Alistair!

It is the first night's accommodation, so for a single it's £45, for a double/twin it's £65

Yep. Have altered the description :)
