Poland in June

Postby DouglasH » Tue Mar 15, 2005 6:58 pm

I know a few of our members were keen on a European trip in the summer, the following was posted on the Mx-5 Yahoo groups...



I've been subscribed to the UK list for over 5 years now and it's always
been a source of valuable information, entertainment (and IT knowledge).
When I first subscribed there was no MX-5 club in Poland. Today we have a web page, discussion forum, over 20 active members and at least three
events a year attracting fellow MX-5 ers from Italy, Czech Republic and
Netherlands.

I would like to take an opportunity and extend an invitation to all the UK
and European MX-5 crowd to a 3 day MX-5 drive in the mountains in South
Western Poland. The timing is June 10-12. The details of the drive are on
our club site here http://www.toya.net.pl/~miata/NOWA/IIIgorski.htm.

It's not near - we're talking about 800 miles (although most of this is
autobahn) from Calais to the Friday evening rendezvous point in the city of
Wroclaw so it would probably make sense to do it as part of say a week's
holiday. Maybe a change from the archetypal South of France or Spain?
We have confirmed participants from the Dutch, Italian and Czech clubs so it has an international flavour while not being too big - we're expecting about 20 cars. Practically everyone speaks better or worse English.

The focus is usually on making lots of stops and seeing interesting places
along the route. What's also fun is that MX-5's are very rare over here which means that if 10 of them roll into the local marketplace you feel like
you're in the Mille Miglia. Here are some photos from last year's event so
you get the flavour, bizarrely there's a strong canine participation.
The Italians enjoyed last year's drive so much they're coming again this year.

We take care of the organisation, maps, bookings, party, freebies,
reservations and do a reconaissance run beforehand to plan timing, stops,etc. On the drive itself the 1st and last cars always have two way radios so
noone gets lost. There are no fees - participants just pay for petrol, their
hotel rooms and the restaurant and bar bills. Should you would want to
spend more time in Poland we can help you out with where to go, what to see and where to stay.

If you want more information either contact myself or Tomek Piechowicz
whose details are on the bottom of the page with the description of the drive.

Best Regards

Your polish might be kiwi Douglas but I know one kiwi who might polish you off if she finds out you are taking the mick out of her nationality
