Ian

Shan FR was kind enough to send me this link
http://www.campeole.com/anglais/camping_visite.asp?mv=desc&id_camping=22

I believe we are in canvas roofed, plastic sided, "chalets", with shower and WC facilities, I think this is the case for everyone, but will check.

I will also ask if there is possibility for camping, Shan mentioned this, and it is true, your UK meets often open the choice to hotel, B&B, or camping......
This may also be the cause of Woody's comment that it was too organised.....

Have a look at the site on the link above, if you have any other questions don't hesitate, I'll get the answers

Leigh, I've asked them about paypal, they say it's not on.
Have you looked at the swift charges?

@ Ian
They've finally replied, occupied elsewhere (Thelethon in france)
It is as I said, all participants have the same quality lodgings.
They wanted to avoid people having to bring surplus equipment ;-))
Hope this doesn't cause you a problem Shan !

Total number is fixed at 176, 139 already registered.
They've allowed for 10 to 15 bikes from foreign clubs.
From what I see FJRIJDERS seem to have filled their lot ;-)

Thats all to date, as I say, any questions I'll deal with em

Only 23 places left, (bodies not bikes!)

Here's the latest
87 bikes, 153 people, lots of french, a lot of belgian/dutch, less swiss and german but a few.

ONE pure english (lsd) and us (half breed)

It is the only european meet of 2006 and looks like being good fun, good food & good wine :lol:

Leigh, if you're the only UK bike we'll sort the deposit privately.

Hi Ian - like mm says, you've done nothing wrong (In fact, the opposite - you've done lots good and right :lol:) There was a spambot post from 'around1' that appeared in this thread, and that is what I deleted.

We would most likely send you for counselling before starting to delete your posts :crylarf:
