    MEGAMEET 2020 - POSTPONED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS

    Hi all

    The decision on whether to proceed or not with this yearís Megameet, has been (thankfully) taken out of my hands.

    The Metroplole hotel came back to me today following a meeting, discussing their planned events for 2020, and have confirmed the following:

    ALL PLANNED EVENTS FOR 2020 TO BE POSTPONED UNTIL 2021.

    The hotel has been advised today that the aftermath of the CORONAVIRUS will be felt until at least September 2020 and thus, the decision to postpone events until 2021.

    I have discussed the possibility of postponing the Megameet until Sept 2020 as an option and they will be looking into it and getting back to me.

    So, for you to consider are the following:

    * postpone until Sept 2020 and if required to reschedule again, decide a date and time at that point. (Only if the hotel confirms that they will take group bookings for Sept 2020).
    * postpone until May 2022, as plans are in place for the 2021 Megameet.
    * cancel the event

    I would personally go for option 1, if we are able to, and have got agreement from the hotel that deposits can be honoured for postponement to Sept and then if necessary, a further rescheduled date.

    So many apologies to all. Tom, Martin, Annie and I were really looking forward to meeting up in May. So, nils desperandum, nils carborundum and keep riding!  :031:

    I strongly endorse option 1, and if that is not possible I suggest to postpone it for May 2021. The plans for Germany 2021 are not as detailed as your plans for Wales this year. I have pre-planned the ride-outs and checked some accommodation options but so far no bookings or reservations. I intended to get into more detail after the 2020 Megameet.

    So if we cannot have a Megameet in 2020, it seems to be wise to postpone this one to the next year. This seems to be the only way to get the deposit back from the hotel. I am not quite sure what a cancellation of my booking would mean today. From what I read they may charge 60% of the original price. I am checking this with the hotel right now.

     :0461: Option 1 Ö.. Uli, regarding hotel deposit I think I (Rozzer actually, I still owe him :164: ) have only paid £20 on our single rooms. If I don't get that back fair enough but with nearly 8 weeks notice that is all I'll be paying, no more.

    Ok. Hotel have been in touch. Please note the following.....

    New Megameet date: 23 to 25 October, so bring your thermals
    Deposits: honoured
    If you want to cancel: you will get your deposit refunded
    If further rescheduling required, deposits will still be honoured for May 2021

    Any questions, please post on thread or send a PM.

    Itís disappointing to have had to change the date, but at least we have a meet to look forward to.

    Thanks for the update Dai. We're planning to attend the rearranged October date, although I know someone will be wanting to bring her heated gear.

    Perhaps we'll call it an Autumn Ambush!

    Dai
    Do we need to contact the hotel individually, or are we all down as a group which will be transferred to the new dates (unless people cancel individually) ?
    Unfortunately for everyone else we will still turn up whatever the date  :016:

    To confirm- the group has transferred across and individual contact is not required; unless you wish to cancel your room.

    If you are going to cancel, please update the attendee list.

    Cheers

    Tough call Dai. but well handled

    FWIW I will also sign up for the rearranged date (be that October 2020, or May 2021, or whatever date this current panic ends)
