As had been announced in Belgium two years ago, the next edition of MGFIM will be held in the north of France, in beautiful Normandy. Due to the 75th anniversary of D-Day in early June, the usual Ascencion weekend will not be suitable for our event, as the hotels will be fully booked. So we had to move to a time after the French summer holidays, the dates have been set as 6 to 8 September. The program will probably be starting on the Friday for the early birds in and around Bayeux. Lots of routes to drive and places to visit are being set up for Saturday and Sunday, when the tour will end near one of the ferry ports to the UK. Details will be published in due course.
Due to room availability, this event is limited to 35 teams.

This year, the event is organised by Juliette, Serge and André, who are local to the region and have already started to do the ground work.
The event headquarters will be in the city of Falaise, located about 35 minutes south of Caen. Driving distances are 700 km from Cologne, 500 km from Brussels, 250 km from the Boulevard Périphérique in Paris. Ferry ports from the UK are Ouistreham (35 miles, from Portsmouth), Le Havre (75 miles, from Portsmouth), Dieppe (135 miles, from Newhaven) or of course Calais (235 miles).
