Exclamation MLU @ Normandy 2019 meet up: 4 June (not the 3rd)

Like in 2014, a merry band of Dutch and Czech people - all with a preference for Canadian and British military history - will be camping at the Batterie de Longues.

I will be there during the first week of June and I was wondering if any members on here are interested in a MLU meeting? Nothing formal, just a "cars & coffee" style get together.

Would Monday 3 June be a suitable date?

Please let me know if you are willing to join us and if the date suits you.

Hope to meet you soon!

Hanno

I would love to meet up, but I am afraid I won't be there any time before early evening on Monday the 3rd.

What about late afternoon June 5th? I don't see any big events scheduled for June 5th, so far(?)

Alex

Don't know too many peeps on this site, but I'll be there.. Subject to plans of who I'll be traveling with, but I would be up for a meet.
I was there for the '94, but this time there is a cottage in the works, not a piece of canvas under a Ward boom!

Default MLU @ Normandy 2019 meeting: 4 June (not the 3rd)

All, we had a Longues Camp meeting today, and decided to move the MLU @ Normandy meeting to Tuesday 4 June, instead of 3rd June. This was decided so more people can attend.

So here's what we plan to do:
  • A friendly gathering for MLU members, families & friends. You are welcome from 09:00 hrs.

  • We will line up the Canadian and British vehicles in our camp between 10:00 - 12:00 hrs. This will be a great photo opportunity.

  • After 12:00 hrs you are welcome to leave - or stay longer if you wish to visit the Batteries, kick some tyres, meet fellow MLU members.

Note:
- If you drive a non-Commonwealth vehicle, you are more than welcome, but please park your vehicle outside of the camp.
- If required, bring you own food & beverages.

Date: Tuesday 4 June, 10:00 - 12:00 hrs.
Location: Batterie de Longues-sur-Mer

Hope to see you there!

Hanno
