MMRC 10th Anniversary event - Epernay, France, May 2008

Postby JML » Mon Jun 11, 2007 2:55 pm

Some of you may have met Ronald van Kelst from the Belgian MX5 club.
They're organising a get together in the Champagne area next year, details below for anyone interested :D

I was at the 2003 one he mentions and it was an excellent weekend (apart from the bar closing early one night but that's another story.... :evil: )

Many of our Swedish friends have already registered:
http://www.pctechnology.be/mmrcforum/vi ... =1425#1425

There is no info on their website- use the forum above or email Ronald.

ps - Ronald usually does his roadbooks using tulip diagrams only, so practice your map reading !



In 2008 we'll celebrate 20 years Miata MX-5 !
Together with the event we'll celebrate also 10 years Miata MX-5
Roadster Club (MMRC)
see also our websitewww.mx5club.be or www.mx-5.be later this year

The program will be completely different compared with the Reims 2003
event where we celebrated 15 years Miata MX-5
(we'll be also more direction Epernay instead of Reims area)

There will be three different formulations to participate :
1) just the rally's (incl. rallyplate, bottle of champagne, T-shirts,
visits to the champagne breweries, ... NO diner in the evening NOR
hotel)
2) everything mentioned in 1) but also the diners
3) everything mentioned in 2) but also the nights in the hotel

note about the diners - they will be more likely as follows :
A) first day/evening : 4 course incl. 1/2 liter wine per person
B) second day/evening : probably Gourmand diner incl. 1/2 liter wine
per person and champagne as aperiitif
C) third day/evening : diner buffet (cold buffet, meat buffet, cheese
buffet, dessert buffet) incl. 1/2 liter wine per person & champagne
as aperitif + amusement (music) till 2 in the morning !!

the event will take place at may 1,2,3,4 (three nights & four days) -
with ascension days

Prices will be a lot cheaper as in 2003 - price idea's are 100 euro
per couple for 1)
350 - 400 euro per couple for 2)
and the all-in will be around 500 - 550 euro per couple (in Reims
2003 you needed to pay 700 euro !!)

DETAILED INFO

First day : May 1 – arrival at noon till 16h00 – register to event –
you will receive rallyplate, bottle of champagne, event t-shirt, …

We'll go in small groups to a champagne farmer to taste champagne and
have a tour inside the cellar and around his vineyard

Normally it will be the same place as in 2003 with the difference
that it is sold to a new owner (used tob e Bruno Gobillard)

Later that day we'll have a three course diner with water & wine

Second day : may 2 – we have a driving tour / rally with roadbook –
approx. 200 kilometres (west from epernay)

We visit in the morning CHAMPAGNE MERCIER (visit & tasting)

Later that day we'll have a gourmand diner with water & wine

Third day : may 3 – we have a driving tour / rally with roadbook –
approx. 200 kilometres (north, north east & south east)

We visit in the morning CHAMPAGNE MOET & CHANDON (visit & tasting)

Later that day (at 9 in the evening we'll start a "diner and dance"
with Music and a lot of fun – till 2 or 3 in the morning)

Fourth day – may 4 – we sleep till 10 or 11 in the morning J and say
goodbye to all your friend

There is a possibility that we add another visit to a champagne famer
but this has still to be 100 % confirmed

We want to go to OR a local farmer nearby or to pommery in reims area

If we choose for the one in reims we would go all together driving
from epernay to reims (would be an amazing "colonne" – all the cars
behind eachother for 25 km)

Oops this clashes with the TCCC spring rally.

Don't suppose they'd be willing to move it to the following week so I can go? :mrgreen:
