Swiss Do (Lausanne): Sat 26th Aug 2017 (August Bank Holiday)

Having just been to the JER do and having floated the idea of a BAEC DO in Switzerland (Lake Geneva) area next year I thought I would put see if there was much interest...

Plan would be a weekend in August (perhaps the August Bank holiday)

Pre-do on Friday (Dinner and drinks)

DO on Saturday afternoon in Lausanne area

Possibility of a Cruise on the Lake on one of the "Belle Epoque" paddle steamers for Sunday Lunch.


La Suisse

Also possible extension of Montreux and mountain railways, chocolate factory etc for those that want to stay till Monday

Easy flights to and from LGW, LHR, LCY, LTN, EDI and other with BA, LX, and EZY simple connection the Lausanne Area and wide selection of Hotel to meet all budgets

If interested let me know... and I will look at dates and see if we can put this together in the New Year.

I assume 2016 rather than 2017?

Sorry, I couldn't make any weekend in August, all booked up already unfortunately.
