Shoot, I forgot about this. I could possible have gone a few days earlier. Probably couldn't have afforded it anyway. Hell I can't even afford Paris.

Have a goot time all!

There is one that is very close: Hotel Sternen - Map

Unfortunately I don't know anything about the rates. Maybe there is also a B&B somewhere around. I could ask some friends of mine who live in that town if they can recommend something...

and another one next to the train station, but that one is probably too expensive. ( http://www.sedartis.ch )


But anyways, most of us will be sleeping outside, in tents or at the local sports facility. And there is also a scouts headquarter pretty close to the race track...

Dear friend,
sorry for not to be there....
I was not able to manage it with my family's duties.
We'll see us in Paris, but what about the 80 cones this year?

HUGE thanks to Chris, Ramon and all the others for organizing a great event. The location was fantastic, so was the BBQ in the evening and the breakfast next morning. What more could you ask for ? Everything was just perfect and we will for sure be back next year.
We regret not being able to do the camping on-site, but I needed a real bed after my hospital visit.
Special thanks to Pia for her help during our hospital trip.
