Macon 2021

Postby r5nga » Fri Feb 26, 2021 12:19 pm

Afternoon folks - are there any rumblings about Macon this year floating around do you know? From a UK unlock perspective, non-essential International travel does not formally re-open until 17th May at the earliest, so technically that logical Macon weekend in May remains before that date. Aside from which, what state will France be in by them in terms of welcoming foreign travellers for holidays?

I am probably not inclined to book any travel for this, but wanted to see if I'd missed a conversation about it somewhere :)

Thanks.
Spider. Yellow, obviously.

I was wondering the same- particularly as I have a A610 in storage to reawaken, finish and shake down before any trip (even if I did buy it the night before the 2017 event) so was starting to think about how many weekends I should allow.

I had the 14th to 17th May down in my diary, which is definitely not going to happen as its before the earliest travel date.
To add to our woes France is quite a way behind us in vaccinations and there is talk of vaccine passports before you can go to the EU - that means two shots according to the stuff I have read (which is, of course speculation).

I haven't had my first yet so I dont think I'll be able to travel until June at the earliest if that vaccine passports happen. If they dont, then its testing and possible quarantine both ways...

Locally the French are under a curfew and their cases are rising not falling....so maybe \i have a few more weekends before I need to retrieve the 610 from storage and maybe Macon will follow the Goodwood members meeting example and move to the Autumn?

You have summed it up perfectly Lee, we would be the first people to get out into the Europe, they are so far behind and even if you get over what is going to be open in reality for enjoying your holiday.
It’s Blighty this year it’s going to be crowded but we will be fully open I think compared to everybody else.
Hopefully the vaccine works and normal life will return for all everywhere next year with our vacation pass ports. Good wood has just moved the members meeting from from May to mid October now.

I am not holding my breath on a Macon 2021 to be honest! I do enjoy the whole Macon trip/weekend and I am still a comparative newbie with a mere 3 attendances thus far.

I did hear that last year was genuinely meant to be the last year, (yes I know all about the numerous previous last years), as the main organiser was becoming a Mayor or something similar and would not have the spare time to organise the weekend. So possibly a "next year" scenario may never happen as too much time has passed, but on the other hand after a 2 year break our intrepid organiser may well be raring to go again. Who knows, we will just have to wait and see. I hope it makes a comeback :up

I see that Jacky has posted on facebook that Macon is cancelled for this year, no mention of 2022.
Fingers crossed for then....
