What happened to the European Get Together (EGT)?

There were two in 2006 and 2007.

The forum says "You must be logged in..." Is there a special password?

Perhaps it would be a nice idea to meet again.
The Lake of Constance (Bodensee) in my surrounding is in front of my home and the Alps are near, as castle Neu Schwanstein too.

Is there no interest anymore, or what has happened?

I would participate or even guide a tour.

Regards from Germany
Klaus

I think it would be a great idea to plan something like this. And Constance is not too far from here by train or even car.
Hi Kees,

I would appreciate it very much.
I can imagine to organize an EGT here at Lake of Constance.
Let's see how many members will be interessted.

Regards from Germany
Klaus

Hi Klaus,

I'd be interested to meet up with some people from Europe. Although at the moment it might be hard to get time off work. I'll keep following the thread and see when the get together is.

Kind regards,

Stijn

I'm still interested in an EGT 2013.

To give you hints about sightseeings in my surounding I devided the surrounding in three aeras:

1. Distance up to 25km
2. Distance up to 50km
3. Distance more than 50 km

1.
- City of Tettnang: 3 palaces (1 Barock)
- City of Ravensburg (nice old town with turrets to climb)
- Shore of Lake of Constance
- Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen
- Dornier Museum in Friedrichshafen
- Zeppelin ride in Friedrichshafen ($$$)
- Spieleland Ravensburg in Meckenbeuren (children)
- Minimundus in Meckenbeuren

2.
- Federsee
- Rappenlochschlucht in Dornbirn
- Rolls Royce Museum in Dornbirn
- City of Constance (ride with a catamaran from Friedrichshafen to Constance)
- City of Meersburg
- Pfänder montain -> wonderful sunset with Lake of Constance
- Oldtimer Museum in Wolfegg
- Eistobel (upper part of river Argen)
- Stoneage village in Unteruhldingen
- Botanical garden Mainau in combination with ship tour

3.
- Säntis mountain in Switzerlandland (aerial passenger line: $$) with City of Appenzell
- City of Ulm with Münster (highest church tower ever)
- Palace Neu Schwanstein
- Rheinfall in Schaffhausen (River Rhein waterfall - the biggest in Europe)
- Fortress Hohentwiel
- Breitachklamm -> wild river in narrow canyon
- Bregenzer Wald (region in Vorarlberg / Austria)

I hope you'll get some impressions about the region I'm living.

The best time I can imagine to arrange an EGT would be last two weeks of September or first two weeks in October.

Kind regards
Klaus

Looks very intersting Klaus! I checked a bit on the area and came upon this one (about the Zeppelin)
H A Unger November 29, 2010 at 4:00 pm

Flights in Germany (Bodensee area, near Swiss frontier) will be offered from 30 to 120 minutes flying time. The 30 min tours will cost 200 Euro, the 120 min tours 745 Euro. Take care to book some months before flying because the Zeppelin is often booked out.
So, if anyone would like toi do this, they must say this quickly, otherwise no place!

Thank you Mike for opening an EGT 2013 sub-forum.
I hope I'll can interest some people to meet here.

I was very active in the Oldtimer scene and organized many tours and meetings.

By the way, thank for your work as admin. It's a fantastic forum.

Regards from Germany
Klaus

OK folks,

now is the beginning of July.

I really like to organize an EGT here at Lake Constance.

If you're interessted, let me know.
You have any ideas how long it should last? A long weekend from Friday to Monday, included?

I'll organize the hotel if you like and a friend will give me his Renault Espace 7 seater to move around.

Sorry folks,

I have to move the EGT to the springtime in 2014.

There is to much family business the last and on coming weeks.
As you know my daughters are still Philippine citizens and we have to organize a lot about language school, visa etc.. Additional my wife started an aprenticeship as nurse last month.

But the idea od an EGT here at Lake Constance is moved, not cancelled.

I beg your pardon...

Thank you for your understanding

Klaus when you decided to do this let me know it would give me a good excuse to get my butt over to Europe again.

I recall the Bodensee very fondly we were there in the fall and it was a beautiful day on the shore at a beautiful restaurant.
