01.10.2011 to 02.10.2011 11:00 to 17:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Morges & Geneva
Event Type: Special Promotion
Location: Morges lakeside & Palexpo
Price: Free entry.

This is actually 2 or 3 events in one......

First, I will be in Morges on Saturday October 1st for the British Classic Car Show, they are expecting over 1500 cars to be on display along the lake, last time I came they put me by the marina next to the main entrance of the event and I'm hoping I will be there again. I'll be bringing lots of cheese and British Ales (I'll probably be making up small cheese tasting plates too to enjoy with the beer too).

Then on Sunday I'll be at the Palexpo next to Geneva airport for the Expat-Expo from 11.00 - 17.00 to sell the remaining beer and cheese.... don't worry, I will bring plenty. At the Expo there will be lots of other companies exhibiting of course and there will even be a bouncy castle for the little ones.

But... Saturday evening I will be staying at the Ibis hotel at Geneva airport and if anyone fancies a beer or 3 it'd be nice for me to get an evening off. It's your town so feel free to make any suggestions... as long as I can get back to the hotel to get a reasonable amount of sleep!

Please indicate which event/s from the weekend you will likely to be at and at what time. Maybe we can arrange an EF meet at 2pm on each of the 2 days for those of you would like to make new friends. Both commercial events are free entry BTW.

Looking forward to meeting some more of you!

Nice to meet some newbies and thanks for the offer of pizza at your place, I was so hungry by then but needed to get to Gata in GE. Next time though[/QUOTE]

You're welcome, there's always something healthy on the menu at our place.
Next time indeed, will try to make Lausanne or Geneva.

She really did polish of the quarter wheel before we got home
I must say that my OH glanced over at your little one at one point and saw her tucking into a big block of cheese which made him laugh.

Will probably be around the 21st and would love to see y'all (and serve cheese, rarebit as needed or requested.. looks like a lot of helpers are lining up)
Was totally gutted about missing you lot last week.

Oy ! the Swiss German bunch, y'all coming this way for an evening out ?

Do you think you'll be doing this run again? I've been meaning to visit Geneva but failed to make it there twice now getting only as far as Montreux and Lausanne on the previous failed attempts

The next day at the Expat-Expo I was struggling with the long hours, so sorry if I didn't seem as chirpy... I also had a stressful 15 minute interview on WRS radio at 2pm to look forward to... it's coming out on Thursday and I'll post a link if I don't come across as a comlete dork.
The interview actually came out last night, it's a bit long at 17 minutes but I did at least make them laugh at the end with my one and only Swiss joke. (not really mine, I was told it by Captain Greybeard)
