Sounds like a good event to go to! This is on: http://www.delorean.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3168 too (en francais).

I have been helping Al out with translation services, and looked into the accommodation options. So it would be a good idea now to see who is interested, and we can go from there.

This is where it is: http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&q=dino%20mezos
To get there we have 3 options:

- Drive (600 miles from Calais)
- Easyjet to Bordeaux (Luton Thurs 10:15-13:00, back Sun 17:10-17:50) £63 total return - can also go from Gatwick
- Ryanair to Biarritz (Stansted 12:15-15:05, back Sun 15:30-16:20 ) £69 total return

Both airports are about 1 hour away. I'm fairly sure we can organise a lift, or hire a car (as we did in Ireland).


Staying there, the best option seems to be the "mobile homes" one: http://www.sen-yan.com/campsite-landes-rentals.html - this seems to work out at around £20 per person per night based on 4 to a cabin. The "event" itself is based around Raphael's house, which is a very short walk from this place. Although the hotel is an easy walk too.

I'll go. I am up for driving there in the D but only if some others do too to make it a road trip. :D

How do I register? I can't understand a damn thing on their forum!

I think for now, if we just get a load of "yes"s and "no"s on here, then we can go from there, and just do a "bulk EuroTec booking", or whatever. I'm not adverse to driving, but the plane looks tempting..... ;)
