Hello Fellow ECC’ers 🙂

Here is the notice that you have all been waiting for.  Below is the proposed trips schedule for 2014.  You will find the full details of them listed in the Calendar and event pages. The event page will also provide the PDF invite once they are available.  In the next Issue of First Drop you will receive all the invites up to an including the US trip.

We are proud to announce that we have a new division of the ECC set up in the BENELUX and there is going to be a big launch event that will be held in Efteling on the 12th April and as you may imagine, Efteling are pulling out all the stops for the Club.  More information regarding this new division will follow in the next First Drop.

The opening of Helix will determine the exact date of the Press Launch where we will get an invite and the park will lay on transport from the Airport as they did for the Kannonen opening a few years back.  We should have notice on this within the next three weeks and I will announce as soon as we have the date

The European trips will be generally be based on our successful make your own way there trips, therefore making easier for you all to choose the best way for you to travel to the park or starting point (if applicable).

The finer details including prices will be completed over the next couple of months. I will endeavour to keep everyone up to date and disseminate the information as soon as I have it!!

I actually feel like I have now written a big chunk of my next forthcoming attractions piece for the next First Drop so don’t be surprised to read some more of this again!!

Speak to you all soon
