Default 2015 uk a8/s8 owners annual meet

OK Boys and Girls - here are the details from Myself and TinTin so far on our next annual meet. . . . we have also engaged the services of The Laird, Briang and David to help with administration of everything as they did such a great job last year! Connor will be taking photos and videos throughout the weekend so I'm looking forwards to even more photographic evidence of a great meet along with various video options!

As most of you in our survey expressed a preference for NORTH WALES and SNOWDONIA, thats exactly where we are going!!

DATES: Friday 29th MAY 2015, SATURDAY 30th MAY 2015 and SUNDAY 31st MAY 2015

VENUE: George III Hotel, Penmaenpool, Dolgellau, Gwynedd LL40 1YD http://www.georgethethird.co.uk/index.php

Contact: James Leach (proprietor) or any of his staff on 01341 422525 or email on hotel@georgethethird.co.uk

They have a total of 11 En Suite Bedrooms and have agreed to give us 10% off the B&B rates shown on the website as a discount
When you call or email to book just mention the Audi A8/S8 Owners meeting at the end of May as they have already reserved out all the rooms for us to book.
They have a mixture of Double Rooms, Twin rooms and a Family room which sleeps 2 adults and 4 kids maximum.
Rooms in the station house on the G/Floor are able to accommodate dog owners for 5 a day additional charge.
They have parking for about 40 cars in their main car park and we should pretty well have taken over the whole hotel for friday lunchtime through to sunday lunchtime!
If you'd like to stay elsewhere nearby or camp then please phone and talk to James as they are very helpful and have overflow arrangements with nearby hotels and details of a local campsite nearby with pods to camp in if you dont want to pitch your own tent etc. They also know of an "overflow hotel" over the toll bridge that we can expand into once we fill the main hotel rooms

The setting is lovely, just outside of the town of Dolgellau, on the banks of an estuary and overlooking the mountains and hills, there is also a beautiful old toll bridge for vehicles adjacent to the hotel to get across the estuary, so plenty of opportunities for photos videos etc

Basic Agenda will be as follows -

MAIN SPONSOR - PRESTIGE MOTOR SERVICES / A8 PARTS
SATURDAY SPONSOR - INCHCAPE AUDI GROUP
SUNDAY SPONSOR - TO BE ANNOUNCED


FRIDAY 29th MAY 2015
- Arrive at leisure, afternoon or early evening
- (watch everyone arrive and have a look at the cars!)
- social evening with a meal in the hotel at 7;30-8:00pm

SATURDAY 30th MAY 2015
- Breakfast at leisure
- Saturday arrivals to be here by 9-9:30am
A8/S8 Drivers and their passengers will then be split into 2 groups for the morning and afternoon events:
- 10:00am
Group A - SNOWDONIA SCENIC DRIVE
Group B - INCHCAPE AUDI CAR DISPLAYS, TEST DRIVES*/ACCOMPANIED DRIVES
*Subject to you meeting relevant age, insurance and licence requirements etc*

Finish by 17:00 Hrs
18:00 - TECHNICAL TALK - VAGcom and ELSAwin (for those that want to learn more)
19:30 - EVENING MEAL followed by a CHARITY TOMBOLA and SOCIALISING!
We have been offered some great prizes this year by each of our sponsors and we would also appreciate any prizes that any of our members can put into the pot - just let us know what you can offer!

SUNDAY 31st MAY 2015
- Breakfast at Leisure
- 10.00am MORNING EVENT by SUNDAY SPONSOR, Not to be missed - should be fun! (Details TBC)
- 13:00pm Lunch & Depart at Leisure

Inchcape Audi have generously agreed to bring a selection of vehicles on Saturday for us to look at, drool over, play with buttons on and hopefully either test drive or be driven around a local scenic test circuit route we have worked out for your driving pleasure. We are hoping to see a mix of vehicles such as A8's and cars beginning with R, S, or RS!!

More details will follow nearer the time so please no questions about specifics of the agenda etc as more will be revealed as we get all the fine details sorted out - thanks

Please add your names and numbers attending to the attendance list below and we hope to see the biggest turn out of owners and their 8's that we have seen so far!!

Phoned hotel and told by the gentleman that he could not take a booking 'cos in the book it was in one name and that I had better try again tomorrow.
I have emailed requesting a double room and will them phone again tomorrow.
