1st European Barndoor Gathering UK cruise to Amersfoort

Post by Coolflo Vintage »

The 1st European barndoor gathering will take place on April 19/20 2014 in Amersfoot in the Netherlands. In conjunction with Niels from Airmighty we are organising a UK cruise to the show and proposing to leave on the 18th returning on the 21st. It's been suggested that some people have to travel a good distance just to get to Dover and that it may be a good idea that we stay in a hotel some where near The dock the night before on the 17th giving people a fresh start on the 18th and boarding an earlyish boat.

It's early days yet but we are seeing who's interested in linking up for the show and cruise over, all years of bus are welcome not just Barndoors but all vehicles have to register at www.benpon.nl this is mandatory!!!

Full itinary will follow with a midway BBQ stop etc...on route !!!

Lets get a list rolling if your interested and help the Europeans beat the yanks record ;0))
