I meant to add that other channel crossings are of course available, so if you prefer a ferry then we can meet up either at lunch or Bruges.

Many thanks, Chris.
Hotel in Bruges now booked.
Couple of questions:
1. Is the plan to stay in the usual Premier Inn on the Thursday night?
2. Can we firm up on the return Eurotunnel crossing (two possible times were mentioned)?
Thanks a lot.

Hi,

Yes the Premier Inn Eureka Park at Ashford on the Thur night.

Let's go for the 18:20 Chunnel so we are not pushed for time if lunch is a leisurely as it was this year! The chances are if we are a bit early we could well get on the earlier train anyway

Hi Ian,

No need to book the carpark, it's a pay as you go.

For info just in case:

Driving in the EU after Brexit
The Government has confirmed that if there is ‘no deal’ then mutual recognition of driving licences between the UK and EU may end.
This would mean that UK drivers wishing to drive in Europe after 29 March 2019 would need to get an International Driving Permit (IDP):
A 1949 Convention IDP (Republic of Ireland, Spain, Malta, Cyprus), or
A1968 Convention IDP (all other EU countries, Norway and Switzerland)
It's been estimated that up to 7 million IDPs may be required in the first year if there's 'no deal'.
Whether there's a deal or not, the Government has decided that, from 1 February 2019:
IDPs will be issued by around 2,500 Post Offices (they're currently issued by 89)
The AA (and RAC) will no longer be permitted to issue IDPs
Mail order facilities for applying for an IDP will cease to exist
Hopefully an agreement can be reached to prevent further red tape and expense for drivers.
(updated 13 September 2018)

I'm going to wait and see what happens on the 29th March but we may need to pop along to the Post office between then and the beginning of May.

I’m going to get one now just in case. It’s only GBP5.50. Am sure all the other benefits Mr Rees-Mogg promises we will otherwise get from a hard Brexit will more than compensate me.....

FYI
You can apply for an IDP up to 3 months before you're due to travel. Once you've received your IDP, it's valid for a year.

FR :
C'est le week-end de l'anniversaire de ma femme, mais je pense venir uniquement vous voir tous à Annoeullin le dimanche matin entre 10h et 12h.
Eventuellement je vous propose de venir à un beau rassemblement de voiture anglaise ancienne qui a lieu tous les premiers dimanche du mois sur le parking de l'aérodrome de Bondues. Cette ville est à 20 minutes du village de Le Mesnil et Annoeullin.
Dans ce cas vous pourriez aller plus tôt à Annoeullin, venir à Bondues, puis aller au restaurant au village de Le Mesnil

Quelques photos du rassemblement de Bondues :

GB :
This is the weekend of my wife's birthday, but I think only come see you all in Annoeullin on Sunday morning between 10am and 12pm.

Eventually I propose you to come to a beautiful gathering of old English car that takes place every first Sunday of the month on the parking of the aerodrome of Bondues. This town is 20 minutes from the village of Le Mesnil and Annoeullin.
In this case you could go to Annoeullin earlier, come to Bondues, then go to the restaurant in the village of Le Mesnil

Some pictures of the Bondues gathering:

Hi Nestor,

The Aerodrome de Bondues meeting looks great and I'll put that in the plan for Sunday.

I think it best to visit Bondues first then go onto Annoeullin and then onto lunch.

Hi Chris,

FR : Je pense qu'il est plutot préférable de commence à annoeullin vers 9h30, et se diriger vers Bondues pour y arriver vers 11h, c'est le meilleur moment pour voir le plus de véhicules, à 10h, il y a très peu de monde, et à partir de 11h45, tous les exposants quitte le rassemblement. De ce fait, partir de Bondues avant 12h00 me parait une bonne option. Dans tous les cas les distances sont courtes entre Annoeullin / Bondues et Le Mesnil.

UK : I think it's rather better to start in Annoeullin around 9:30, and go to Bondues to get there at 11am, it's the best time to see the most vehicles, at 10am, there are very few people, and from 11:45, all the exhibitors leave the meeting. As a result, leaving Bondues before noon seems like a good option. In all cases the distances are short between Annoeullin / Bondues and Le Mesnil.

Hi Nestor,

Given we are starting in Bruges I think the aerodrome before the crash site makes more sense. (just to confirm, is it the Aérodrome de Lille - Marcq-en-Barœul, Avenue du Général de Gaulle, 59910 Bondues?)

Looking in more detail at the timings, I suggest a slightly earlier departure from Bruges:

Sun 5th May

Depart Bruges at 9:30 for Bondues with arrival about 10:45.
Note, this is using the E403/A17. If we use a non-highway route it will be about 40 mins longer so need to be away from the hotel by more like 09:00.

Depart Bondues at 12:00 for the Albert Ball crash site memorial, arriving approx. 12:30.

Laying of a wreath and commemoration by Mark Henry

13:00 head off for the restaurant Le Maisnil Mon Temps for lunch at 13:30

http://www.restaurant-lemaisnilmontemps.fr/

Depart apres lunch for the Eurotunnel or for those staying on for Monthlery head off to Laon with Ian Parkinson.

For those on the 18:20 Chunnel we would need to leave the restaurant by 15:45 to take the back roads or about 16:30 using the motorway (non toll).

Looks good to me Red Leader. We shall be in the 34 Supersport, heavily laden with luggage so may lag behind a little on the Bruges to Annouelin stretch.

With our planned visit to the carshow at the Aerodrome at Bondues we will be entering the Lille ZPA air protection zone. This is only activated in cases of high levels of pollution and when active vehicles require a Crit'Air badge to use the zone.

The fines for non compliance are quite steep so it's worth getting a Crit'Air sticker just in case. They are only €4.21 and last the life of the vehicle.

Apply at https://www.certificat-air.gouv.fr/en/

You will need to attach a photo or scan of the cover and page 2 of your V5 registration document and the hardest part of the process is to get these images under 400kB each! (I scanned mine then emailed them to myself selecting the option to resize large images and that seemed to work)

In the application form I used:

Make:Morgan
Commercial Description: Three Wheeler
Indication of the environmental category: Euro3
CO2: Left blank

Delivery is about 10 days.

Chris - thanks for the friendly reminder for this. I would love to join but it's looking unlikely, the magazine eats any free time I have, and there are trips to Finland, Latvia, Germany, Holland and god-only-knows-where lined up in the coming months.

I want to thank you, and the others, for making this such a great event. Bon voyage!

Rich.
