The German Amphicar Club Members

Discussion in 'General Amphicar Discussion' started by martyandcaryl@charter.net, Feb 14, 2001.

  1. Ahoy Bilgemaster:

    With the 14 German Amphicar Club members coming, is this confirmed?
    To your knowledge at present, do or will they need anything from the
    US Amphicar Club members before or during their visit.

    Do you know if they are connected to our Yahoo Groups for
    communications, questions or concerns before they make their trek.

    We are attending the Celina Swim-In again and do have reservations at
    the Holiday Inn Express.

    Caryl and I will make every possible effort (as I'm sure all members
    will) to assure they are comfortable and have a great time.

    Please let us know if we are able to help in any way.

    Best Regards,

    Marty & Caryl Peters
    BUOYANT '64 Turq in WI

    That number is confirmed and their accomodations have been secured. Ten of
    our teutonic travellers will be at the Comfort Inn, while the other four
    will be at the Kozy Kampground (there's a thumbnailed map captioned "Celina
    Landkarte" showing both locations on the German-language "Invitation" page
    at http://www.amphicar.com/grosseflotte.htm).

    As far as what we can do...Well, they've come a long way, so let's make them
    feel ultra-welcome. Needless to say, anyone with even high school German
    might want to dust off the old textbooks between now and then, but most of
    these folks will speak decent English. Barring some last minute development
    or a sponsor, they will not be bringing over any Amphis owing to the
    prohibitive cost, so anyone with a free seat should adopt at least one of
    our visitors to ride shotgun in all events and whatnot. Also, anyone in the
    mood for an early-morning cruise four or five mile cruise might join me in
    picking up the Kampground contingent in the morning by water (see the
    previously mentioned map). That could be fun.

    The group's organizer, Ren? Pohl is a List subscriber, and I have been and
    will continue to work with him to see that all goes smoothly. They'll have
    a couple of rental minivans, so no airport pickups will be necessary or
    anything like that. No doubt I'll be providing more details and appeals for
    assistance to the List as the date draws near.

    With 15 of us from the EuroZone this year, one thought, if anyone wants to
    bring along a spare Amphicar, or if one could be collected reasonably
    locally for the weekend, then you could be sure it would be well looked
    after !, Maybe even worked on by us Metric people during the Sunday morning
    tech session !! I'm sure we could work out insurance and other legal stuff.

    Cheeky to ask I know but that's what Europeans are like !

    Yes, we are certainly coming! At least we already booked our flights to
    Chicago for the 25th July, so we won?t miss Celina on the 27th. Thanks
    everyone for the invitation, it will be a great time with you for sure!
    See you in Celina,
    Ren?
