Hello Fellow ECC’ers 🙂

Here is the notice that you have all been waiting for.  Below is the proposed trips schedule for 2015.  We have another action packed year for trips including a quick jaunt to the USA and two weeks that we will be spending in Italy (these dates were announced at the end of last season) as well as more trips to the mainland and of course the UK.

Full details of the trips will be posted to the Calendar and event pages over the next few weeks as we receive them. The event page will also provide the PDF invites once they are available.  In the next Issue of First Drop you will receive the invites for the big US and Italy trips as well as local ones for the 1st quarter.

After a successful first year of the ECC BENELUX they have arranged even more for mainland Europe this year which of course all members are invited to attend.  Also they will ensure our attendance at fandays in the Benelux region.

The ACM date and venue has now been set and after a lot of work by ourselves and the Dreamland Trust we are pleased to announce that we are holding it at Dreamland in Margate 🙂

View further details on the Calendar.

Trips that are yet to find a place in the Calendar yet are as follows :-

Dreamland, Tayto Park, Bobbejaanland, Toverland (fanday), Moviepark (fanday), Walibi Belgium (Fanday).

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
