Here it is then, may I present

"OctoberTec 2017"

This event is taking place across the weekend of Fri 13 and Sat 14 October 2017 in King's Lynn, Norfolk.

As with the highly successful sell-out EuroTec events in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 ,2011, 2012, 2015, 2016 and 2017, 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.

As of August, at the time of writing, 27 people have booked so far.

Attendance at these events is always high, always sells out, and over 20 DeLorean cars are expected this time. 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 for one week from now. Provisionally 20 rooms have been blocked booked for this event, and there is a special rate if you book and pre-pay now. After next week you will have to book direct with the hotel, and at higher rates, 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 (probably) - price £10-£15 - advance order needed (you all have the menus now)
- 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 (probably) - price £10-£15 - advance order needed (you all have the menus now)
- 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: £75 per night
Double/Twin: £80 per ROOM per night (£40 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.


Book Now!:

To book, and I can't emphasise enough the importance of doing this soon since they no longer holding any rooms for us, you will need to phone the hotel direct. When you phone the hotel and book simply quote the "DeLorean" group and you should get the above rates. You can up to a day before on the phone rates - or something like that anyway.

You can also book online via the hotel's own website, but you can't get the special rates this way.


PLEASE ALSO LET ME KNOW YOU HAVE BOOKED 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!
