Message From Bob Swift of the Dutch CRC

We want to invite anyone who would like to come to join our European Cobra weekend on July 21 and 22 this year. There hasn't been a big event organised by our club for some considerable time and we thought that we would like to reenact what we did some years ago.

More info to follow tomorrow and contact info

I will be going, but will be headed in from Germany. Nigel, if you read this do you fancy the trip? Robert please let me know where you are planning to stay.


11-05-01, 10:00 PM

Yes I would like to go. My car now has its TUV and I am one piece of paper away from being able to get it registered here - the one that confirms it is not stolen and apparently that has been issued and mailed to me!!

I will be travelling up from Bonn so we could meet along the way. I would similarly like to know hotel preferences having not been there before. I will contact Bob Swift directly and get tips from him.

Ah well, we won't be staying at the same place then! It looks like Nigel and I will travel in together from Germany, he will speak to Bob Swift direct. As long as there is a bed that will do me.
