    NEW INFO ON HOW TO SIGN- IN @POST #7


    We are planning a 2nd attempt to bring some Cali's together in France for a small meet up at a champagnehouse with a campfield/facilitys .
    It would be a meet up with other members and a small champagne tasting with the posibility to buy champagne all at the site no driving involved.
    Tried to organise it last year but the date not suited many , you can read in this topic what the general idea is:

    https://vwcaliforniaclub.com/threads/france-meet-september-2017.13747/

    Those who are intrested and think they would come to the meet we ask to fill in a doodle with 3 weekends to chose from.

    We chose the periode in september becose the site is not keen on doing this in the high season as we are given it whole place to ourselves and in the highseason there are other visitors at the site.
    Within a few weeks we will see witch weekend suits most people and we try to book it at the site .
    From then on (if we are sure the site is ok to give the site just for us ) we make it official and work out a way to subscibe as the places will be limited to 20-25 Cali's.

    Link to the doodle :

    EDIT : the doodle has been closed , the date will be 15-17september 2017


    Ps:
    This is posted in "general california chat " as it is the most visited/popular part of the forum.

    Dear California owners ,

    We are planning a smal meet-up in France at Vandieres (30 min. from Reims) at a small champagnehouse with a own campsite.
    http://www.champagne-nowack.fr/index.php/en/welcome.html
    This would be the weekend 15-17september 2017 , there's room for about 25 California's , the site has electric hook-up , showerblock,....ect. everything a campsite has. In a very quite and small village .
    Arriving from fridayafthernoon and leaving sunday arround noon we have the site to ourselves (you can stay longer or arrive earlyer on your own base) a small champagne tasing on sathurday late afthernoon and offcoarse the possibility to buy champagne at the site no driving needed .(witch i can confirm good quality/price)

    All included , no extra costs for 1 Cali with 2persons at 45€ (EURO)
    This includes two nights on site and everything from hook-up ,showers , touristtax, a tasting of 2 glasses champagne ,.....
    And on top we will supprise you with a small gift!(Guess it is not a supprise anymore now...)

    Adding extra persons or kids would add a small extra charge (would not be that much ) witch we arrange at the site/weekend itself (hoping the owner agree kids for free if the group is large enough to cover his expences )
    Do let us know if you are coming with more than two so we can count this in.
    Dogs are free but as it is a very small site take note there are no dog-facilyties or dog-walk on the site . And dogs should be walked outside the site!

    A chance to meet-up with fellow Cali owners or just enjoy the site , there's BBQ on site free to use , a outdoor covered patio and a indoor room with tables and chairs if the weather is not on our side .
    You can also take a trip to Reims or Epernay (30min drive) to visit other champagnehouses.
    Go cycling thru the winefields .

    Only 25 Cali's can join .
    For the moment there are already 14 Cali's singed in as the people who did filled in the doodle and helped to pick the date had first choice.
    The next 11 Cali's who sing in are sure they can come , i 'l keep an update on the numbers every day until the max of 25 is reached .

    If you like to attend we ask to pay 45€ using PayPal to this mailadres :

    wim.raeymaekers@pandora.be

    Using "send money to a friend or family " in EUR currency this should be without costs .
    Please give us your sirname and forumname so there is no mix up possible .

    Any questions we will answer if needed.

    The list so far is :
