Portugal HU meet

Hopefully I'll be heading to Portugal for the HU meet. Does anyone have GPS position for the rally site? I like to be prepared for these things early
Insecure? Me? nah, never

Don't have GPS sorry - but it's easy to find, no worries. We found it easily last year. See you there!

(But I will try for better directions! )

Registration?

Grant,

When does the registration open? We're planning our mid summer trip based on this meeting and it would be nice to 'ink' in the dates.

Thanks.

I know we've asked the question before, but any idea when registration for Portugal will be open?

We've got time off work to book and baby sitters to arrange and time is marching on.

I'm still keen to arrange something for Andalucia before the year is out and I'm hanging around waiting to see what happens with Portugal.

Any info you have will be greatly appreciated.

Alison

Possibly a daft question but I can't find the daft answer -
Will talks / presentations be in English or Portugese or a mixture or something completely different ?
Thank you.

Grant: Portugal, some information please.

Grant,

The Portugal meet is next month, yet there is still no registration or information available - but registration for events happening after Portugal are already open and being actively promoted.

May I on behalf of the myself and others ask the following questions again:

1. Is the meet definitely on?
2. What languages will the presentations be in?
3. What presentations are scheduled?
4. What are the GPS co-ordinates?

I am sure that you will appreciate that many travellers need to book ferry crossings, arrange their holiday, etc. and early answers to these questions will help them make their arrangements as soon as possible.

Incidently have any members already booked their crossing for the Portugal Meet?

See you all in Portugal!

Registration is open, and we have the first registrations in already, so book now. We'll both be there, and then riding up to the HUMM in Spain afterwards - makes a fun two week trip on the continent with lots happening both weekends.

We prefer pre-reg as it makes it all a lot easier for us, but no problem if you're not sure - so long as we don't get hordes just arriving it's no biggie.

So yes, no problem! Just don't expect a tshirt etc.

see you there!
