UPDATE REGARDING COACH TRAVEL (EXCURSIONS)
Recent requests for quotations from local coach companies suggest that each return trip from our preffered campsite to the Hobby factory in one 50 seater coach would cost 480 euros.
Currently we have 21 vans hoping to attend, 42 individuals, this equates to 11.42 euros per head per trip.
Bearing in mind that it is a return trip of 60km, I personally do not consider the cost unreasonable.
Incidentally, one stipulation the coach company have made is that any delay at either end of the journey would incur an extra charge of 40 euros per half hour, or part thereof. So best be prompt !
It is planned that we would require three seperate return jouneys.
Thurdsay evening – meal provided by Hobby
Friday daytime – Hobby factory visit
Sunday daytime – Hobby 50th anniversary celebrations
Hopefully we are all in agreement with these costs. As a reminder, it has been previously stated that the factory could not accomodate our vans.
Applications to attend this trip are still welcome but should the final number exceed 50 individuals, then we would need to request further quotations for a larger coach.
