M.C.C. Selected European Rallies Group (Member of F.I.C.M.)

Members 88th. Newsletter Issued 6th July 2015.


As I informed you in my last newsletter we are no longer able to rally with the French Clubs therefore I have less in the way of rallies and events to send details of. I will of course send out any events in France that I find that are available to us.

I have received a letter from A.P.E.P.P. the Association in the Le-Puy- Notre Dame area of France, who for the past 7 years, via the Office of Tourism, have been responsible for organizing the vendanges week-ends in their region. The Tourist office has now been closed and the letter invites anyone who would like to take part in one of the venues to contact the vineyard direct. They have only supplied telephone numbers and the name of the grower but their email contacts are on the web if you put in the Domaine name. The date appears to be 3rd.& 4th.October. I am attaching a copy of this letter with this newsletter.

So far I have not received our usual invitation from Christian Cousin for his vendanges week-end at Domaine de Fiervaux.


I am attaching the details, letter, programme, booking form and important information, for the annual rally hosted by the FLM. This rally starts on Friday afternoon 11th.September and finishes on Monday morning 14th.September.

The cost per person is £108.

All cheques made payable to MCC/SERG must reach our Treasurer Nick by: 31st July.

Treasurers Address:

Mr.N.Woodcraft, “Janannie”, Birch Road, Layer-de-la-Haye, Colchester, CO2 0EL.

I have been asked by the organiser to remind our members about the above, I first gave details in 86th.Newsletter, so here they are again.

The 7th.Annual Montgolfiade (Hot Air Balloons) will be held as usual on the Racecourse at Thouars between the 4 and 6th.of September. This event is open to every one, and is handy if you are in the Thouars/ Saumur area of France around this period. You just arrive and pay for a parking spot.

There are photos of the Éghezée prolongation on ABUM’s web site. Go to abum.be click on the photos disc, then, next to photo of Martine & Philippe click Diaporama Éghezée.
