About the city :
Lille is located in the north of France, near the Belgium border, and my friends I can tell you it's a stunning city, beautiful and friendly!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lille


To be sure I wont be lost... very close from Paris, only a two hours drive





Here some shots I just took just when I arrived












The venue was in the historical hearth of Lille...







And now it's time to meet : the crew, the food, the waitress and the vintage







































































The evening was setting in Lille

A quick freshen up at the hotel, and it was time for some of us to meet for a second round for those who spend the night in Lille

















































































What a great time, always a pleasure to meet new faces, and talk some more with the old ones.

Hope you like the D-Tour,

... is in the photo near the top of your post, but her facial expression is priceless! LOL! I think I've seen my wife look exactly the same during a GTG. Kind of like she is saying to herself ... "how did my life end up like this? Watches... of all things ... it had to be watches!" LOL!!

Great report, Dan!

Looks like usual, you guys had a blast!!! Incredible event with an impressive attendance. Hopefully I can find my way one year .....


Thanks for sharing, M8!!


Cheers!
