Title: Beta meeting in France for the 50th anniversary in 2022
Post by: cgo75 on January 05, 2021, 02:18:51 PM
Hi everyone,
I'm in charge, for the Lancia Club France, to organize a big event in 2022 for the 50th anniversary of the Lancia Beta. The event will take place in the north west of France, near Saint Valerie sur Somme, not far away from Calais. It will be a two days meeting (Friday afternoon until Sunday noon) in the second quarter of 2022. The Betameeta event of 2012, to which I participated, will inspire the organization of the 2022 meeting : nice place, good food, elegance contest, gala dinner with games and Prices for the contest, easy ride in the country side with a visit of some castle, abbey or stunning place, and a lot of time to rest, drink beer and chat about cars.

If some of you are interested (even only one car!), I will make sure that most of the documents will be in English, that visits will be commented in English  and I will select enough bilingual french participants that you won't feel alone

I know it's a bit too early for real commitment, but I would like to know if  you are interested and if it's worth digging the subject.

Thanks for your replies

Happy new year

Claude

Hi Claude
Please count me in please,  we are also in the process of organising a UK Beta 50th/Betameeta, again no dates set yet, but we will make sure they don't clash with each other.
I'll add a 2022 events page and move this over.

Regards
Tony.

10 positive answers in a very short period of  time: It's more than I expected.

So I will work on the project and keep you updated regularly (every quarter at the beginning and every month by october this year). Formal registration will be around December this year (Booking of large hotel for the  month of may needs to be organized a long time before as this period is the busiest of the year).

I am delighted to work on this ambitious french-british project and I will do everything so that you are not disappointed.

Obviously if you organize something in the UK, I'm in.

Indeed!

It's a bit more of a hike from where I am but why not?

..besides my beta would never forgive me for missing out on such a gathering.
Something very pleasant to look forward to Claude. Let's hope things are back to normal / or semi-normal by then :)

Hi UK Folks,
I wish you the best for 2022 for you, your families, and your beloved cars.
Some news about the Beta Days, the French event for the 50th anniversary of the Lancia Beta model.
(https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51809753273_249095bdf9_m.jpg)
The event is still planned for May 21st and 22nd, 2022 In the Bay of the river Somme. We have booked another hotel than the one advertised in the trailer as their booking conditions were just not acceptable.
The new location will be the hotel “Le Semaphore” located in the small town of Rang du Fliers, near Berck Plage
Web site:https://en.hotel-le-semaphore.com/] [url]https://en.hotel-le-semaphore.com/ (http://[url)[/url]
This is a Best Western hotel whose architecture could be called cubic (let’s say ugly), but the hotel is well located, the rooms are modern and the restaurant excellent. Car park will be privatised for us. After several tries, it was my headquarters during the construction of my house in the area in 2020.
Unfortunately, travel between UK and France is not authorised for the moment except for essential reasons (and this event is not essential):
https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/france/contact-fco-travel-advice-team (https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/france/contact-fco-travel-advice-team)
Hoping that the situation will improve in the coming months, I will block a limited number of registrations for those of you who have expressed interest until the end of April.
Anyway, the booking forms are available and can be downloaded. As said in page 2:
Should a cancellation be required due to travel limitations (EU, UK or France, ex: Covid 19) prior to the event, payment will be fully reimbursed.
Should the Event be cancelled by decision of the authorities (ex: Covid 19), payment will be fully reimbursed.

Waiting for your feedback

Claude

This looks very good and it will be great to get over to France again, albeit first time with the Lancia. Two questions please:
- we'd like to stay on the Sunday night; don't fancy driving home after a good Sunday lunch! Is it possible to include this in the booking or should we do it separately?
- happy with paying now but all international transfers I've experience of have required recipients bank details. I assume that is not the case here and, while this may be just my ignorance, I  would welcome some guidance on how to make the transfer and preferably a recommended operator.
Thanks for your work on this - really looking forward to it.

Mike

Hi Mike

Assuming you have the IBAN nos for the account in France, you can send via Wise.com without too heavy transfer cost/fee and the transfer is same day normally to the French account. I have no connection with them other than I have used them for years with zero problems and the transfer rate is market rate, not travel agent rate……

Mike (mikemcd) asked :

Answer : I will do it for you. Just tell me in the email with the booking form (as for the Friday night) .

I will try to set up quickly a Paypal account as an alternate mean of payment
