Be glad to see you there Fred, the more the merrier! Its not a cheap event, but I think its worth every penny, if just to see the fabulous machines it attracts. If you look at the details for entries, there is the possibility of reserving a club space in the car park, so if we can rustle up enough committed Scimitar owners (who don't need to be entries in the event) we could go for that-and I would be delighted to have your photographic skills there . Book accommodation early, I have a feeling the local hotels will fill up quickly!
As for the Circuit de Laon, do you intend to go for all three days?

Ian, you have some mail in your box :wink:
Regarding Laon, Fred Hermand suggests to attend on Saturday & Sunday ... the Monday being mainly organized for our english friends,
thus often a circuit north of Laon which they can follow on the way back to England ... unfortunately in the opposite
direction for us southerners ... Patrice Beauchant is interested in attending as well, which would make us 4 french scimitarists at least :mrgreen:
Suggestion is to choose the same circuit - e.g. A - on the registration form so that we can be together on the road on the Saturday.
Cheers, Fred

Hi all,
I put a little remark in the calendar regarding the invitation from the Eglish Rencart Club to the "Coupes de l'Age d'Or" -
for those who need an inspiration, take a look at the thread about the :arrow: 2016 event...
Cheers
Jörg

Thanks Jörg for this ... I will let you know who will join us this year so that you can update the calendar :wink:

Well I sent in my entry for Laon, no reply yet. Fred Rambert says his entry(in March) was refused because its already fully subscribed! If that's the case I shall not be going all that way just to be a spectator; on the other hand I shall definitely be entering for this:http://www.ls-competision.org/accueil/accueil.html.

It's very East again, but maybe the Alsace men would like to come down? Ornans is a delightful place, bucolique as we say in France! :)

Hello Ian,

To be frank, about Laon ... I do not understand what happened :?
It's not that I was refused, it's in fact that I could NOT apply since the online registration webpage was closed and showing
a message 'sorry, but registrations are now full ...' (!) So I actually gave up and decided to come along as a 'visitor' like last year.
Today I visited again their website ... and guess what, there is no more warning and you can download a registration file again :shock:
This is weird but I'll give it a shot :lol:
Cheers,
Fred

Fingers crossed! If we are accepted at Laon, I'll be there -but can't afford both events in June! :-?
